"The creative juices were flowing like crazy - thank you!!"
"Could not have enjoyed myself more! Loved the opportunity to expand my horizons and sample something that I had never tried before!"
"Great fun, knowledgeable teacher! Great to get the history on the artist we painted!"
"Fun time with goals but no pressure - So love the ambiance created - hearing the stories is such an inspiration!"
How about an art party with a
Polynesian twist - table easels and paint, inspiration from a Master – where you can apply
the techniques of impressionist art legends like Paul Gauguin, who painted
Tahitian life, and use color and exaggeration expressively. Famous artists are featured at these parties, where you will hear stories, enjoy themed snacks, and have fun.
The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. All materials are provided
including aprons – and you will leave with your own 16” x 20” acrylic painting ready to hang.
Jackie Freeman, MA, BFA holds university degrees in fine arts (painting) and adult education.
It's fun and easy. Right away you'll be painting in the style of famous masters like Picasso or Van Gogh. You'll take home a finished canvas with techniques you'd see in London's Tate Gallery or the Louvre in Paris.
Parties are held in community rooms, bars, rec centers, tasting rooms, college classrooms, private homes, senior centers, and outdoors.
You may hear funny, surprising - perhaps touching - tales of how the artists struggled to become famous; their eccentricities, obsessions, and superstitions. Jackie researches international publications and follows art reviews to learn little-known fascinating details about the artists' lives.
It's a laid-back scene. People come for "the experience," to paint museum works with like-minded others and channel the Great Masters.
The painting steps are planned with you in mind. Everything you need to complete your personal masterpiece is waiting for you, apron included.
