The Fun Palette equips creative minds with brushes, paints, and canvasses during abstract-painting classes led by local artists such as proprietor Cari Cohen. Groups convene in the studio to learn such fundamentals as acrylic techniques and paintbrush stretches by following step-by-step instruction. Artists can bring spirited beverages or tasty appetizers from home in order to intersperse brush strokes with sips of an inspirational libation. The studio accommodates the revelry by providing wine glasses and paint trays filled with dipping sauces. Local artists peruse the in-progress artworks and dish out tips, which help students manifest masterpieces they can take home after the class. Check the schedule for upcoming days and times.
The Fun Palette
The intricately designed, European-style buildings that populate the Buenos Aires cityscape enchanted the eyes of Argentina native Cari Cohen at an early age, inspiring her to earn a degree in architecture from the University of Buenos Aires. Driven to push the boundaries of architectural innovation, Cari began delving into other creative media to expand her horizons, sparking a newfound fascination with abstract art and jewelry crafting. She has since moved to Miami, where her original paintings have been showcased at events such as Art Basel and Art Miami.
Cari founded The Fun Palette as a way to share her passion for the visual arts with kids and adults, hosting a variety of imagination-spurring classes for students of all skill and experience levels. During the studio's painting sessions, students can closely follow their instructor's step-by-step instructions to create flowing landscapes or abstract pieces or go off the beaten path to compose self-portraits that reimagine the painter as a bowl of fruit.
