Art instructors teach a classroom of students the step-by-step techniques needed to re-create a beautiful acrylic painting while their students sip on their favorite beverages. Afterward, they cast off their smocks, demonstrating Argentine tango moves to traditional music and inviting students to join in. At the end of the evening, each attendee takes home a ready-to-frame painting to treasure.
Art, Wine & Tango
In studios across the world, painters toil, pouring their souls into the canvas. Within nearby ballrooms, dancers tango in time with the music with well-placed steps. For Mykol and Susan, these two seemingly disparate art forms draw from the same emotional well. At Art, Wine & Tango, they share their expertise within the twin disciplines of tango and painting.
Trained in dance in Buenos Aires, Susan has also studied art at Glassell School of Art and the Art League. A commercial builder, Mykol, used his eye for shapes and structures to build the beautiful building where their classes in Argentine tango and ongoing art take place within two studios. Together, they teach couples the intricate interplay between leader and follower while also demonstrating the importance of non-verbal communication within the dance.
In addition to dance classes, the studio's instructors also help students unshackle inner creative spirits through BYOB art lessons. While aspiring artists sip on wine or beer and relax, an art teacher demonstrates how to recreate colorful acrylic painting in easily replicable steps. As the last stroke dries on the venue-provided canvases, the instructors discard smocks and don dancing shoes, switching the lessons from laid-back painting to elegant Argentine tango. After a taste of tango, attendees head home wiser, more nimble, and with a frame-ready painting to decorate their homes.
