Painting with a Twist

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Either the Ferndale or Farmington Hills location.

    We can bring wine and appetizers to munch on during the event. We would have to agree on a painting to paint - they (t. I was thinking either a Friday evening or a Saturday afternoon/evening.

    Too far for me, but I'm also thinking about signing up for this one Jan 15, Fri, 7 to 9pm at Paint & Pour in Dearborn. They have a $15 discount (code is XMAS2015) if signed up by the 31st making it only $20. http://thepaintandpour.com/event/savannah-forest-jan-15th-7-9-pm/

    There is also an Ann Arbor location. I'd like to attend there if anyone is interested.

    I'm thinking about going to the painting in Farmington on Sun Jan 10 @2pm Senior Day so only $25, but anyone can go- no age limit. I won't know for sure 'til the last minute, but check it out: http://www.paintingwithatwist.com/events/viewevent.aspx?eventid=605572

    I'm not sure if you all know this, but there is a Painting with a Twist in Wixom. It's at Grand River and Wixom Road.

    I thought I might paint the Natural Waterfall at the Painting With A Twist in Farmington on September 24th 7 to 9pm everything provided for $35. Check it out here; http://www.paintingwithatwist.com/events/viewevent.aspx?eventid=510145

    Let me know if anyone is interested in joining me & we can sit together-haven't registered yet. One or 2 other artists I just met from my neighborhood might go as well.

    OK my reservation is done. See y'all there. Carol, some of the paintings are too simple for me & it's a little on the expensive side. If we could get more people to have a private group that may be better, but Gopa has to override the system for the invitation too go out to the other members. PWAT does have some $25 days called "coffee & canvas", "senior day" (which anyone can attend), "family day" & "maniac Monday" which usually have the same time slots every month-for the bargain prices, but most are too simplistic for me. They do have a landscape acrylic painting lesson every 4th Thursday at 9:30am for $23 non-resident-paint & 11 X 14 canvas board included at the Livonia Senior Center. He wants everyone to bring a tabletop easel. Kind of early for me, but I went to the last one & the next one is supposed to be a field of flowers. I'll try to make it. Let me know if anyone needs more info.

      Mine is as well. See you tomorrow

      Remember to wear clothes you might not care if you get paint on since it may not come out. I hope they have ice there.

      August 14, 2015

    They also have painting classes at the Michael's stores for $25 but you have to bring all the stuff. If you want to be put on the mailing list & get pictures of the projects & a schedule for the Southfield store contact Melissa Ringey [masked] also having a half price sale soon. I just did a painting there & saw 2 others that I want to do-can't remember the exact names, but one is a sunset, the other aurora Borealis I think. She doesn't have the schedule firmed up for September yet & has limited class sizes, but does a class with as few as 2 people, so may do a private class for us, but not sure since she has kids to juggle as well.

    Cheers, MaryEllen

    What do you mean 2 posts?

  • Carol B.

    Why do we have 2 posts on this? I cannot make the Friday group as I have out of town guests.

    I think I am going to paint the Tuscan Patio this Friday 7 to 10pm in Farmington if anyone would like to join me.

      No, but there still looks like plenty left. I will reserve tomorrow afternoon & will add a note that at least one more of the Art People will be joining me so they sit us together. Will also be asking for a chair with no arms (otherwise they give you a stool) & to sit close to the teacher so I can hear better. They also supply aprons. It's $45.

      August 12, 2015

    • Mary

      Sounds good. I will reserve mine tomorrow and state that I want to sit near the other Art people person. It doesn't matter to me about the seat.

      August 13, 2015

  • Carol B.

    A Saturday sounds best to me. Is the place for sure? What about a date in July. I can't make it from august 13 to the 23rd or in early September. Do we have a painting. I think a Van Gough or Monet would be good. Since I am a beginner at this I thought something like these styles would be easier, but I don't want something s easy as some modern paintings that re jut a square on a background color.

    June 20, 2015

    • Mary

      I agree a vangogh or Monet sounds nice or any landscape. I don't want anything too cutsie or modern hanging in my house.

    If you use the Farmington location I would be interested, but the Ferndale location would be too far for me. Weekends work better for me after late August, before then I just need to avoid Wednesday's.

    August 11, 2015

  • MaryEllen

    I just posted a figure drawing workshop in Plymouth on June 27th in the "suggested" that needs 2 more folks to RSVP yes for it to go out as an email to the rest of the Art People. Hope to see you there.

    June 16, 2015

  • MaryEllen

    If we get enough people they will do a private party just for us. I like evening.

    You can also come to my studio in Commerce Twp if the location is better. It would be $35 with materials and instruction for up to 3 hrs on a mon, fri, or sat night, informal relaxed and fun! See the pics...

    Sounds fun! Just need a date. I work odd hours on various days, so it all depends on when it is.
