About Color Cocktail Gallery
Color Cocktail Factory is the domain of three artists—MFA grads from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago—who work as professional painters, illustrators, and printmakers. These artists started Color Cocktail Factory as a way to share their knowledge with novice practitioners in a laid-back environment. But they know that for less-experienced paint slingers, the idea of coating a whole canvas can be wildly intimidating, especially if their third and fourth arms have yet to grow in. So they encourage students to drink, organizing social BYOB lessons where students work on the same guided project. At the end of the session, well-hydrated pupils take home their very own paintings, which might be a sugar-skull portrait, a landscape, or the recreation of a famous masterpiece.
