Art Social – A new type of art class
Many of our regular Paint Night attendees requested an additional type of art class with the same social aspect of a Paint Night. As it turns out, paint and wine make for a really enjoyable way to spend an evening and our friends wanted more … but were asking for a little something different.
What to do? Well, that was the question. A gift from one of our regulars provided the inspiration. The book ‘Ladies Drawing Night‘ sparked the process which led to a focus group for a drawing class unlike any other. We wanted anyone to be able to come (not gender specific). We wanted both those with no drawing experience and those with some art background to be engaged and create a beautiful piece that they could give as a gift or frame for their home. A fun, relaxed atmosphere similar to Paint Night was a must, but this class would allow for more personal expression.
Kim Nicoll was up for the task and last week a focus group met with her to test her method. The group consisted of three persons rather uncomfortable with the idea of drawing and one amateur artist. It was a huge success! After 2 hours they wanted to keep right on going and they each created a beautiful card worthy of sending.
Dates and subject for the new ‘Art Social’ class will be announced next week.
Stay tuned …
