In The Art Escape’s student gallery, dozens of burgeoning artists proudly smile beside their work. Through painting parties and a calendar of regular classes, the studio's instructors ease students into the creative process with step-by-step instructions that result in a complete painting to take home or sneak into the local art museum to see if anyone notices. In these structured yet creative sessions, small groups of artists unholster their brushes to have fun while gaining confidence in painting fundamentals. Floral arrangements, still lifes, and nature scenes emerge from surprisingly simple techniques, ready to stand proudly on the wall of any room.
