Paint for Fun’s savvy instructors foster a warm and relaxing environment in which children and adults alike embellish plaster pieces with vibrantly hued paints. After donning aprons, guests can select from more than 100 plaster figurines and plaques, adding rainbow colors to a blank elephant piggy bank or sneaking off to paint mustaches on all the rabbit statuettes. After the painting session is complete, staff members coat pieces in a quick-drying spray to render figurines with a gossamer sheen. Guests can bring their work home the same day to share with family members and imaginary museum curators.
Paint for Fun
A former art teach of 30 years, owner Patti Spinelli welcomes students of all ages into her studio to superimpose colorful imagery upon three-dimensional figurines and placards. More than 100 unique pieces beckon to painters, who are encouraged to don aprons, brushes, and paints to festoon pottery pieces with colors they draw from a vivid palette or channel through a past life as a kaleidoscope. The studio's lively instructors roam the workspace doling out encouraging words and helpful techniques. Patti also hosts intimate art classes, opens her studio to group parties, and stocks traditional canvases for those who prefer rendering still lifes or globes from a time when the Earth was flat.
