Art Experience may specialize in fun, pressure-free nights out, but its instructors are all professionals?working artists with degrees from the Kansas City Art Institute, in fact. These artists lead BYOB painting classes for students of all experience levels. No experience is necessary, and they provide step-by-step guides and all materials, including canvases, paints, and brushes. Each class focuses on a single image, which students recreate with thorough guidance from the instructor. The 2,000-square-foot space doubles as Mod Gallery, which showcases work from local artists and hosts First Friday events that are free to the public.
