|Q: What is an art party session?
A: It is an opportunity to enjoy acrylic painting in a casual studio environment. Everything you need to complete a painting is provided. Friends (and soon to be friends) come together to paint, visit, laugh, and have a good time. At the end of the session you have a painting for your home or an original gift for someone special.
Q: What if I am not artistic and have never drawn or painted before?
A: Anyone can do it! Art is for everyone and we have art for anyone. We pre sketch a canvas as a guide for you and our artists show you each step as they paint their own canvas. The artist for the session will lead the entire group in painting the same picture. This does not mean everyone’s painting will look exactly the same. Adding your own personal style makes your piece unique. Just have fun!
