What You'll Do

Creativity isn't a faucet that can be turned on and off, though it can sometimes be helped along by a pour. With a glass of wine in hand and professional artist Claudia Olivos leading the way, you'll have a chance to think outside the box and follow your painting muse. Together with her husband, Sergio, Claudia will offer a primer on color theory and composition, giving a live demonstration that sheds light on abstract art and mixed-media painting. As you put brush to canvas on your own work of art, Claudia and Sergio will make the rounds, offering as much help as you need to make your vision a reality.

  • Tap into Your Creativity
    Instead of painting a stock photo, professional artists Claudia and Sergio Olivos help you harness your inner vision and paint a beautiful, original work of art

  • BYO Wine and Snacks
    Bring along your favorite vintage and a platter of hors d'oeuvres to keep your mind limber and your appetite satisfied while painting

Each event is capped at 12 participants; each event requires a minimum of 8 participants in order to take place.
