What you'll do

Visit the Connecticut countryside, just 90 mins outside of NYC. Board the train from Grand Central, or drive to Wilton, CT. This picturesque area, beautiful in every season, has long been a destination for painters, and is now a home to celebrities, weekenders and NYC commuters. After meet and greet, (and wine..!) I will demo my method for "Fast Abstract Art" painting, sharing tips on composition, color and technique. Learning how to create successful abstract art. Then it's your turn to paint-hands on, (with gentle instruction). No experience needed, just interest and enthusiasm. This is not a "paint and sip " program, we don't copy other art. Each piece is uniquely yours! Next, I will help you crop, edit and mount your work. You will go home with (at least) one unique abstract painting-done in your hand. Ready to frame and hang! Masks must be worn. Social distancing, cleanliness and safety protocal will be followed.

I am a lifelong lover of art and design. Having graduated RISD, and enjoyed a career in fashion, I now own a small retail shop, in the charming New England town of Wilton, CT. Recently, I had my "aha" moment - and developed my signature "Fast Abstract Art" painting. Rather than struggle - painting is now fun! I enjoy sharing my method with those interested in learning a new skill, or just making art among friends- in a relaxing and inspiring setting.

Where you'll be

My space is in Wilton Center, which is a 5 min walk from the Wilton train station. Weather permitting, we will paint outside, "plein air" style, inspired by the nature and quintessential New England setting. In cooler months or inclement weather, we will paint inside, still using nature photos as inspiration. The painting area is located in my retail shop with lots to stimulate the senses! Space for social distancing provided.

Beautiful experience. Something different than the regular experiences available. We're so happy we opted for this because we were genuinely excited. 2 hours passed so quickly that we had to go home and start putting our skills to work right away. Wonderful setting. Caring and loving host.

My summer afternoon painting under the wisteria pergola with Andrea felt like a dream it was so perfect. The garden was colorful, the drinks cold, and Andrea's welcome warm. I learned so much about abstract composition and technique and had a blast doing it. The time flew by and I left with paintings I made ready to frame. The quality of art and ambience is so far beyond the typical pinot and paint classes you find at the chain locations. Andrea supplied all the necessary supplies and snacks and the pacing was perfect. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and I would definitely do it again and recommend to others (solo or groups).

This was something that I have always wanted to do but never made the time, nor had the courage. Andrea made me feel very comfortable in a very beautiful environment and taught me step by step how to make beautiful abstract art. The lesson went very fast, even though it was two hours , we were busy, and I left there feeling exhilarated, like I could do this! I look forward to my next steps into the world of artistry, with Andrea’s guidance. She has a keen eye and assisted me in creating some beautiful pieces. My family was impressed! . And I was able to tune out to all of the stress and junk that clouds my mind on a daily basis and actually enjoy my surrounding and creation.

This class is a great ice breaker into the world of abstract painting. Andrea makes it easy—-she has broken it down into simple steps and it really gives free rein to your creativity. You end up with a number of finished paintings and the inspiration to explore on your own. I highly recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a relaxing and enjoyable experience!

Andrea's backyard studio is in a beautiful and serene neighborhood. She had everything set up for our painting experience and guided us through her process. We had a blast! She was a thoughtful guide and we came away with several great pieces of abstract art. Highly recommended.
