What you'll do
Guests will enter the studio, with a DJ spinning current and classic beats, choose a seat where they like. They have all the paint supplies and easels in front of them and will likely want to sip a cocktail (if 21+) or cucumber water or coffee, which will be offered on arrival. While guests are arriving and settling in, my co-teacher Sasha and I ensure they have everything they need, and talk about the painting that we've chosen to teach, its background in art history or cultural context, as well as how they many innovate or vary upon the theme and where best to freestyle. We then begin the background which is usually some free form abstract that is a warm up, loosening them up and giving them confidence in their instincts and possibilities. We then teach every part of the painting in a series of simple steps, basing each phase on a familiar shape or letter for the form, while explaining colors and the dos and don't of paint mixing. Meanwhile we refresh their drinks as requested. A trained mixologist, I curate several craft cocktail choices to the painting theme. As the paintings come to a finish, guests have found ways to create in their own language, creating a true work of art to take home, to remember and embody the whole experience. Everyone socializes, finishing up at an organic pace, taking pictures, clowning, dancing and happily milling out without feeling rushe

I am a serious full time Brooklyn artist who opens my private art studio weekly for hip, culturally relevant painting parties. (no corny sunset-palm trees here- think Keith Haring, Picasso or Basquiat) I was an art instructor for the #1 most popular paint-n-sip company in NYC, where I taught hundreds of classes (thousands of people) unique paintings that I personally created. My students got the best results hands down. I gleaned cool ways to communicate the deeper aspects of art to a general public, many who'd never picked up a paintbrush, much less glimpsed the workings of Basquiat, until guided in a true art discovery experience. I saw how empowering, educational, & therapeutic it could be. I had to create something unique using the insights I got from all that experience, offering a joyous, culturally dynamic, art-centric paint party

Where you'll be
Chicasso Studio is a stunner for everyone who walks in; the quintessential art studio with two full walls of warehouse windows and thus tons of sunlight, plants and art everywhere. We have nice sound system and, with my history in the music business, an expansive music selection. It is a straight Brooklyn art experience with nothing quite like it anywhere else.
