I teach at paint and sip events, paint parties, botanical gardens, at Michaels Art Stores, and different venues all around New York City, including parks and other outdoor spaces when the weather is nice. Whether at a place where drinks are sold or at space where BYOB is welcome, students enjoy unwinding and socializing while expressing themselves through art and creating their very own masterpieces.
For paint and sip events, all the necessary art supplies are included - watercolor paper, pre-sketched canvas or other surfaces, unlimited painting materials (brushes, watercolors, acrylic paints, palettes, and miscellaneous tools), painter's smock, table easels (when required), and a take-home bag to protect the artwork. All students need to bring are an adventurous and curious spirit to have fun and relax while creating art, socializing, and making new friends.
I also teach acrylic and watercolor painting techniques at Michaels Art Store in Chelsea. Painting kits for both mediums can be purchased at the store and include plenty of paint, brushes, a palette, and substrates that can be re-used for future classes or independent projects but feel free to bring your own supplies if you have it. Register at www.michaels.com/classes and choose the Chelsea location at 675 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY, 10010. Class fee is $15. Alternatively, you can register for the class directly at the store. Just come a little before 6PM and pay at the register before class starts. I'm at the Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8PM. Check the class schedule for dates and which medium will be used, as well as a sample of the projects we'll be painting.
If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint," then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. (Van Gogh)
Classes are perfect for all levels - beginners through advanced are all welcome. Students learn the basics of painting such as preparing a surface, mixing colors, blending, shading and highlighting, and a host of easy techniques, all the while enjoying a fun and relaxing experience. The results are amazing and students leave with a painting project they're proud to display or give away as gifts.
I'm also available for private events, fundraisers, birthday parties, girl's night out, team building, date night, bachelorette parties, mommy and me classes, and private lessons. Simply choose a venue and I will come to you with everything necessary. You provide the willingness to express yourself artistically and I'll provide everything you need to do so! #artforjoysake
