Spirited Art helps painters of all skill levels and ages channel their inner Van Goghs during step-by-step art lessons that render colorful masterpieces. The instructors keep the environment fun and lighthearted as students pick up provided brushes, stand at their easels, and conjure their muses before laying out such compositions as Klimt's The Kiss, a still life with coffee cups, or a Monet-inspired landscape. Pupils can snack on treats brought from home as they add color to their canvas, and adults can bring wine to lubricate the flow of ideas. At the end of the lesson, each painter totes home a finished magnum opus to grace a mantel or cover up the results of practicing their javelin throw indoors.
Painting classes with Uptown Art - Uncorked allow artists of all ages and skill levels to spend a few hours expressing their creative impulses. Each session focuses on a designated theme, based on the style of a particular artist, such as Monet, or a particularly beautiful still-life subject, such as gerber daisies or a puddle of spilled tabasco sauce. For groups of aspiring Picassos or people with more than three hands, the studios also host painting parties to accommodate birthday celebrations, bachelorette soirees, work retreats, and sorority events.
Kate Saville Hawkins opened Poshin Paint to provide a space where people of all artistic abilities can socialize while tapping into their creativity. It's all about discovering new talents and nurturing self-expression. The studio hosts canvas-painting classes for adults and painting parties for kids. The team of artists is also mobile—they can bring easels, paints, tables, starry nights, and other essential supplies to customers' homes for private parties. Kids' parties can include decor and cupcakes.
Before she'd ever considered starting her own studio, Design N Unwind's owner found herself in an unfamiliar place: an art class. With a paintbrush in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, she realized that not only was it fun to explore her creative side, but that she wanted to share that experience with others. So, instead of renting a stretch of billboards and letting hitchhikers doodle on them, she established Design N Unwind. There, themed classes put students in charge of painting with simple, step-by-step instructions that can be followed by anyone, regardless of whether they've practiced art before or not. Throughout the week, the studio plays host to public and private events, such as live jazz Sundays and bachelorette parties, as well as classes for kids and teens.
