Fine Arts Connection provides artistic entrepreneurs of all ages and skill levels with the means to create. Instructor Yichen Reneau enlivens brushstrokers with more than 15 years of teaching experience and prodigious skill in an array of styles and media. The 90-minute introductory drawing course inserts biology-class notebook doodlers into a different classroom to work on fundamentals such as shadow shading, how to make thumbs not look weird, and recruiting fruit models. Meanwhile, the two-hour Chinese brush painting class lets students ink Chinese characters with special brushes on provided rice paper, upon which they'll delicately depict the characters for truth, beauty, and Marilyn Monroe sunbathing on a duvet made of Campbell's soup cans.
At Youthful Expressions Studio, three generations of women inspire others to summon and embrace their inner artists using nothing but a little bit of paint, some wine, and a load of friendly encouragement. To run the studio, photographer and writer Mary Jane Booth enlists the help of her talented daughter, Cindy McDannel, a painter and graphic artist, and her arts-minded 11-year-old granddaughter, Kassidi. Together, the three of them make up Youthful Expressions’ "3 Pack," the name of which pays homage to the all-rodent super-group the Rat Pack. The trio continuously hosts fun and accessible art parties for all ages. The two adults also teach BYOB Paint the Town art classes for grown-ups.
Though Youthful Expressions Studio sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
At abc Art, brushes flick across canvas, a quiet swishing sound that serves as a backdrop for chattering students and clinking wine glasses. While pupils sip brought-in drinks, artists lead the class in painting images that have included cupcakes, landscapes, and abstract scenes. Tucked beneath arms, the paintings leave with proud students and are ideal for hanging over holes accidentally smashed in a refrigerator. The studio space also hosts private parties, which let guests bring in food and drinks to paint the evening away.
