Art with a Twist – Graffiti Inspired Art

Come to the Friday night “paint and sip” style evening with a friend, date, or your own creative spirit – no experience needed! Enjoy a relaxed setting with beer & wine as a local artist guides you to create a finished work of art. All materials provided, the price includes one drink. This event is for 21+ and your ID is required.

The theme will be Graffiti Inspired Art – An excellent class for beginning painters! Make your own street-art inspired paintings (small scale) on canvas, using brushes, acrylics and non-toxic, food-based spray paints. If you’ve ever wanted to try spray painting but were scared off by the chemicals, this is your chance to experiment! You’ll learn some layering techniques and channel them into your own original expression.
