The Drunk Artist’s talented, local painters and instructors help students of all ages and skill levels splatter 16”x20” canvasses with provided paints and brushes during casual BYOB classes offered Friday and Saturday evenings. Budding Rembrandts receive careful guidance while creating their own versions of preselected paintings, which change each session and include subjects such as flowers, animals, and the Mona Lisa’s half-cousin, Marsha. Attendees can also daub drab canvasses with original strokes, and with advance notice, The Drunk Artist will provide a picture to use as a guide. Throughout the evening, participants pair a smattering of complimentary appetizers with self-provided wine or cocktails and discover which paintbrush’s bristles best mimic the texture of walrus whiskers.
The Drunk Artist
For Margie Garcia, owner of The Drunk Artist, the word drunk doesn't just refer to being inebriated: it also means being overcome by a strong feeling or emotion. During one of The Drunk Artist's painting classes, students can embrace this double meaning by creating an impassioned piece of art while sipping on BYO beverages. A local artist assists painters of all skill levels in re-creating a chosen masterpiece by demonstrating helpful techniques and doling out the necessary materials. After an evening or afternoon of eating complimentary snacks, pupils leave with a finished painting that can be mounted on the wall or sneaked into a museum in the middle of the night.
