Paint and Party’s skilled local artists offer step-by-step instructions as students mimic and modify each painterly technique to create their own unique masterpieces. After groups of two or four arrive with their favorite beverages in tow, artisans pass out aprons and non-latex disposable gloves to protect their clothes and priceless Jackson Pollock manicures. Students then gather before a featured 16″x20″ painting and watch intently as artists model each necessary brushstroke. Pupils can inject individual personality into each piece with careful brushwork or a turkey baster, then take home their newly dried masterworks by the end of class.
Instructors advise students to don old garments—such as a worn-out shirt or frequently used bear costume—before class to prevent damage from the acrylic paint. Guests must be 21 or older to participate, and instructors will provide all corkscrews, openers, and plastic cups. The class schedule for January and February is available online, and students are welcome to stimulate their muses by perusing Paint and Party’s online gallery.
Paint and Party
During Paint and Party's laid-back painting sessions for children and adults, groups as small as 6 and as large as 30 students gather together in front of blank canvases awash with the thrill of possibility. While following step-by-step instructions from a trained artist, students use provided paints and brushes to recreate the session's featured painting, which they can take home to hang on a wall or toss out a window to make a motion picture. Visitors are encouraged to bring along drinks and refreshments to enjoy during class, and all cleanup is handled by the studio's staff.
