What you'll do
You will walk into the restaurant or hotel where the painting party is being held and will be directed to our art space. The table will be set with everything you need to create your masterpiece: tabletop easel, brushes in 5 sizes, water cup, palette of paints, and an apron to protect your clothing. You will meet Erica, your talented instructor, who will make you feel at ease and welcome at this venue! Guests can order drinks, appetizers, and even a full meal to enjoy during the class from our excellent wait-staff at each of the venues. Once settled in your prime painting position, class will begin. Erica will walk you through the steps of the painting from beginning to end. You will start with the background, working from the top of the canvas down. Then you will add in your foreground subject matter. Measuring sticks will ensure accurate placement, and Erica will offer tips and tricks for your color-mixing, blending, and brushstroke techniques throughout the class. Finally you will add in finishing touches and details, and sign your one-of-a-kind masterpiece. At the end of class, Erica will take photos of you & your group for an added memory of your fun time with Painting & Vino!
I'm Erica Marr, a former elementary teacher turned artist entrepreneur! I started Painting & Vino East Phoenix in July 2017 and have absolutely loved the transition to teaching adults my greatest passion: painting! I've loved art my whole life and strive to take part in my local arts community, wherever I may be living: from high school art club in Alaska to studying abroad in Italy & painting the Ponte Vecchio. You will love my easy-to-follow steps, art history anecdotes, and the passion I bring to my painting classes. Everyone leaves with something they love! I can't wait to teach you!
Everything needed to paint: easel, apron, canvas, paint, brushes, paper towels, examples, instruction and encouragement!
