I am so excited to tell you about the "One night of wine and painting party" class I took at The Art Studio NY. I'm sure a bunch of us moms can use a night out and this class can do the trick. The Art Studio NY offers three hours of painting and complimentary wine while you create a beautiful portrait to hang in your home in one night. The "one night" class is open to everyone from beginners to experienced painters, even first timers." To start, the instructor will give you an inspiration picture to work off of.
There is no right or wrong during the class and all you need to do is have fun, relax, and be inspired. Our instructor, Linda, showed us different techniques such as thinning out paints, composition, brushwork, and textures. She was just wonderful as she let us ask tons of questions and was super informative. They like to keep it to six to seven students at the "One Night of Wine and Painting" class, so you are able to achieve the one on one attention. The Art Studio of NY will provide all of the materials you need for your masterpiece, except you are required to bring your own canvas. At the end of class we all were able to look at each others "works of art." It was amazing to see how the other students interpreted the painting and how different they all were. Overall, the class was absolutely wonderful and I left there feeling super relaxed and inspired. I cannot wait to go back for another "painting and wine" party!
