You'll arrive at my studio where supplies and will be set up. Please come with an open mind about what constitutes art, and a spirit of unbridled fun. We'll chat about the famous artist featured - but remember artists are not usually choirboys and my stories will be those you never heard in school (where stories are sanitized). If the artist was a tad risque or a bit bawdy you'll hear it - all intended to enhance your understanding of the artist's motivations and inspirations. You'll get a personal photo of the select artwork to use as reference. (I'll feature a painting like one that sold for $106 million.) I'll demonstrate color mixing, brush work and offer tips when you feel stuck. Throughout, you'll walk in the eccentric sandals of a famous artist who painted during an era from late 1800s Impressionism to the pop art scene of the 1960s! You'll take your artwork home, painted on your choice of substrates - stretched canvas, flat canvas board or rollable canvas paper, whichever travels best! Over 21? BYOB - we have 30 area wineries with charming tasting rooms - you'll pass a few on the way. I'll provide wine glasses and a corkscrew. Please let me know if any minors are in your group.
I'm a high-energy, unabashed art teacher who loves the crazy life stories and creative styles of quirky famous Masters. In a party setting you'll playfully paint a Picasso, Frida, Gauguin, Matisse, or VanGogh ... and hear entertaining little-known anecdotes that can be a bit edgy - artists are rarely choirboys. I hold a Fine Arts Degree in painting and a Masters in Adult Ed. I've reviewed art shows for an entertainment mag, led group tours at a huge art center, taught crafts in a psychiatric hospital and teach art workshops at a local college. My painting parties are fun and you leave with your version of a museum masterpiece ready to hang and a fresh outlook on a famous artist!
Over 21 year olds are welcome to bring their own adult beverages. Water is provided.
All supplies are provided
We will paint in my B&B art studio - or outside when weather allows - where everything you will need is available. I am located on a main road in charming Suttons Bay village, at the doorstep to 30 wineries and right across the road from a Lake Michigan bayfront park. My adjoining sunlight-filled solarium is filled with succulent plants, a tile fountain, and the sink you can use to clean your brushes and wash your hands when you finish.
最多可供6位年滿18歲的旅人參加。 My little dog Sassy lives in the studio. She will welcome you wagging her tail and likes being petted. Eventually she will get bored and go to bed.
I provide aprons. Casual dress is typical.
Some participants travel by plane so I provide a choice between stretched canvas, canvas board, or canvas paper (which can be rolled). We'll use slightly smaller size canvases so packing is practical.
Paint like VanGogh, Picasso or Gauguin
