Artist Uncorked's instructors draw upon classical art education, fashion experience, and other skills to help eager pupils of all ages and experience levels unfurl vibrant scenes across provided canvases. Patrons can break out a bottle of wine during any of the two-hour weekday classes to fuel creative inspiration without lassoing muses. Local artists lead sessions that elucidate the steps necessary to produce a 16"x20" canvas rendition of works of art such as the cool-hued Blue Crabs painting or the impressionistic Ocean Abstract work. Artist Uncorked arms students with paintbrushes, acrylic paints, aprons, canvases, and corkscrews. Students may bring their finished art pieces home to adorn bare mantelpieces or otherwise dull lumberjack resumés.
Art is in Bloom's veteran brush-wielder, Dorothy Howard, helps students to hone their talents with expert painterly techniques during three-hour painting classes. Spreading easily workable acrylic hues across their 16"x20" canvascapes, budding artists channel their inherent creativity into vivid representations of still-life scenes, swirling abstract images, or neo-cubist grocery lists. Dorothy fosters artistic development for painters of all skill levels and imparts constructive criticism to guide students in the right direction, like a parent gently nudging apprehensive children down a profoundly fun waterslide. The cost of the class covers all the materials required for each painter to create an individual take-home masterwork, though students are allowed to bring their own supply of inspiration juice from home in the form of beer or wine, for which the studio will provide a corkscrew.
