Had a blast painting this summer loving snowman. Kids with never ending creativity and enthusiasm and a project that is close to their heart - are a sure shot recipe for a fun filled afternoon!!
Witnessing this excitement and fun is what drives us to work harder to come up with fun projects. Looking forward to see you guys soon at one of our Pizza 'n Paint events!
As per the plan, we started offering 3 hours long "Pizza 'n Paint" events for ages 6 and up back in November. We have been getting a pretty good response, and more than anything else, the kids are having FUN!
Generally, the event is planned for a Saturday afternoon. So parents can relax with dinner and a movie while the kiddos get busy creating their masterpieces. Or as we see nowadays, parents can get done with their Christmas shopping :).
And kids? Believe me, there is no better fun than to witness their joy of creation, and see how each one of them expresses individuality in their paintings. It definitely makes our day, and charges our batteries to work harder to come up with the next project that would be fun for the kids. After all, nothing beats a fun filled 3 hours of creation!
Lately, we have been trying to work on some "Sip & Paint" projects.
The challenge is to zero down on projects that can be finished comfortably within approximately 2 hours. Not only that but it should be satisfying enough for newbies or beginners, while challenging people with a higher skill level.
And it should have enough opportunities for personalization. Say for the art above, everyone can take liberty of picking their own background and flower color.
After all, best part of sip and paint experience is the joy of creation, with some of your best friends around you.
Planning on offering some sessions soon!
Beautiful landscape creation by a 12 year old.
Reminds me of this quote from the book - Beauty: The Invisible Embrace.
"Landscape is the first-born of creation . There is a poignancy in beholding the beauty of landscape: often it feels as though it has been waiting for centuries for the recognition and witness of the human eye . . ."
Water color pencil art by a 7 year old.
It takes a lot of patience at that age to carefully apply different shading techniques and then blend the colors with a wet brush.
I especially love the imagination with colors and the control while working with the wet brush.
With water color pencils, once you apply water with a paintbrush, the colors start to soften and bleed into one another. There is a very fine line between a marvelous blend and a terrible washout.
Kudos to the young artist for being patient enough to observe the results and adapt to the outcome!
Creation of an 11 year old Brushwork artist!
Love the perfectly blended warm colors.. Here in Arizona we get to see beautiful sunset colors almost every evening, and looking at this creation I am amazed how close it is to the real colors we experience!
Also do you notice rays of the setting sun peeking from behind the mountains? What a glorious way to avoid putting the actual sun in the art but still convey the presence!!
All those thoughts across past few years about sharing and spreading what we know has finally come to fruition!
Today we embark on a journey that we think would bring smiles on not just our faces but on many more. Knowledge always grows as you share it and we think the best way to get better at something is by teaching the same to others.
Brushwork Art Studio is all about simplifying complex paint projects. This should help attendees understand the method of scoping a project and then easily go about individually scoped items to come up with their master-piece.
We are starting small with a few time slots built around weekends. Eventually, the vision is to grow into a 6 day per week studio, filled with budding artists. Feel free to contact us with your time preference and we'll do our best to work something out even if it does not fall within our advertised schedule.
