Same Love Same Life has one mission: promoting acceptance of the right to love no matter people's sexual orientations, sexual identities, genders, or anatomies. To do so, the artists' collective showcases paintings, photography, poetry, and other art from LGBTQA-friendly creators at its Monroe Street Studios gallery. Its artists also feature their work in local art shows and teach art classes, including watercolor, photography, and mixed media.
Growing up in his mother's kitchen in Western France, Laurent Robic
developed a natural enthusiasm for fresh food made tenderly from scratch. After attending culinary school, Robic minced and sautéed his way across Europe, picking up knowledge of different cuisines and broadening his foreign whisk collection. Eventually, Chef Laurent traveled to the states with his wife. Today, he's amassed over 20 years of professional experience, which he passes on to students of all ages and experience levels during an ever-rotating lineup of demonstrative and hands-on cooking classes. Whether he’s passing on the secrets of winter soups and stews, demonstrating the versatility of chicken’s many kitchen uses, or unlocking global tastes with country-themed courses, Chef Laurent honors his art with patient, friendly instruction. A noted chocolatier, he also lovingly crafts French-style truffles out of Ecuadorian chocolate certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
As their name suggests, U can Paint 2 operates on the premise that anyone willing to put a brush to canvas can produce a worthwhile piece of art—and have ample fun in the process. During events open to all ages and levels of experience, participants follow along with a professional artist as they strive to produce projects that run the gamut from classical masterpieces to seasonally themed artworks. Each painting event includes all the canvases, paints, and aprons necessary to complete a piece with maximum detail and minimal garment stains. The hosts provide refreshments for their budding artists. U can Paint 2 also plans to open a new studio on South Bend Ave, where they will provide free child care during Friday and Saturday night events.
