Paint Night, Socialize and Create Art With Friends

Teacher for Monday, December 9th, 2013. http://davidalvaradofineart.com/

This is a painting and socializing event.  I think that many of us already know about Paint Nite in Los Angeles and I'm trying to do something similar, except a little more inexpensively, and also more focused on the art itself, kind of an actual art class with socializing among people (I will also invite others from my other meetups that altogether have about 3,000 members).

 

 

Please leave comments in this meetup event page about how you think I can make this night more successful.  I'm completely open to suggestions. I love painting and would like to find a way in which members of this meetup get to polish their skills and meet each other in the process.  Maybe we can do this in a weekly basis, biweekly, monthly? I'll get feedback from my other meetups as well.  They may have a different take on this event.

The price right now is $20, from 8:15 to 11pm.

You can email me at [masked]

Thanks,

Lissette

Come on down and socialize with us.  At the Neon Venus Art Theatre. 

As a group, we'll have a photo or 'inspiration' of an image we can all paint.

You may also bring pictures of an image you want to paint.

By the end of a 2-3 hour session, everyone will have painted their own version of this 'inspiration' painting or photograph.

Hang your painting at home, or give it to a relative, or start selling your art...we may hang the best paintings on our wall.

The purpose of this meetup is to learn how to paint, meet others, socialize and have a great time.

I'll be inviting people to join this class from other meetups I manage.

    We had such a great time! David is a fabulous art teacher, Lissette is a gracious hostess, and all of the people who came are so much fun. Can't wait to do it again!

    What a fab night! I had no experience painting and not much faith in the end result. But we painted away and had a lovely time doing it. Our instructor was informative, simplified the process and helped us all along. And in the end I have a painting of which I am actually proud. I've been showing it to all my friends! Great night, highly recommended. (Not sure what NVTA is)

      You don't need to bring supplies anymore. I had to raise the price to include materials....

    Hi Lissette, unfortunately I won't be able to make this meetup, hopefully I'll be able to next time, I'm looking forward to meeting you.

    Hello, Lissette,

    Thank you for working on this event for our group!

    Definitely been looking forward to it.

    To answer your question, when I RSVP'd, I thought supplies are included in the $20 fee.

    Also, is there a presupposition that all artist attendees are at a certain skill level? I assumed it was for everyone who considers him/herself an artist, whether or not the workshop's particular medium/genre is his/her particular primary form of expression.

    Clarification would be helpful about the various aspects addressed in your email to us. Thanks in advance for your reply!

    Cheers,
    Laurel

      I hope the email I sent answered your question about supplies. They will be provided, but in order to do that I had to raise the price. :( And the class is for beginners, but it's also designed so that more advanced painters can join for the evening and paint at their own level.
