Art By The Glazz’s artist-led painting sessions kindle brush-wielding talents during three-hour classes on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (schedules vary by location), with all materials included. Painting pairs settle down with a complimentary glass of wine behind easels that support 16”x20” blank canvases ripe for realizing 2-D tableaux and 12-D statistical models of beauty. During each session, one featured painting is perched midstudio for reimagining by students, who can refer to replicas at their workstation for close-up details and cheat codes. New artists capture shapes and shadows under the guidance of pigment professionals, who give step-by-step directions for translating the image onto canvas. Quick-drying acrylic paint entices creative fingers with realistic or supersaturated color schemes, and aprons encircle waists to protect against stray paint, wine drips, and the tears of fruit trapped in a beautiful but airless eternal present. Savor drinks from the cash bar or desserts (at the Dupont and Silver Spring locations) as paintings dry, before finished masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from a chandelier to create an indoor wind chime. Check the schedules for Chantilly, Dupont Circle, or Silver Spring to choose an upcoming session.
Art By The Glazz
Supplying all materials, Art By The Glazz's artist-led painting sessions kindle creative talents during three-hour classes held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. New artists capture shapes and shadows inspired by a number of pastoral- or wine-themed templates, with step-by-step instruction from pigment professionals. The pigment-shy can embolden themselves with a drink from an onsite cash bar. Aprons protect against stray paint, wine drops, and the tears of fruit trapped in a beautiful but airless eternal present, although Art By The Glazz recommends wearing old clothes. Finished masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from the dining-room chandelier. The company also hosts corporate team-building events, small groups, and birthday parties, giving guests an enjoyable ice-breaking activity.
