Canvas & Cocktails:
Mastering Traditional Still-Life
Friday June 17, 6:00 – 8:30pm
Just in time for Father’s Day! Experience traditional painting techniques in this one night event with local artist Paul Abeleira! Learn the essential tips and tricks of traditional still life painting while enjoying creating art in the company of friends.
We will be painting in the exciting style of “alla prima,” which means “all at once.” Blending the colors while the paint is still wet, we will explore techniques to render a bold, fluid effect that will make your painting sing.
Grab a glass of wine and your paintbrush and join us in our fun, hands-on atmosphere. We provide the canvas, brushes and paint. All you need to bring is your creativity!
At the end of the night, take home your completed painting and show it off!
