Q: What are classes like?
Classes are 2.5 hours long with 30 minutes after class dedicated to individual and group photos of students and their amazing artwork! Students arrive 15 – 20 minutes before class starts to sit down, put on their aprons, and browse the venue’s menu. Orders can be placed at any time during the class, but we recommend either before class or during the 15 minute recess. Our instructor welcomes students to the class and introduces herself before briefly explaining how to use the brushes and how to mix colors. Paintings are created in simple steps. The instructor demonstrates each step on her own canvas before checking to see if any student’s need help or have questions. While most students will paint the class’s featured artwork, students are welcome to paint anything they want! Half way through, there’s a 15 minute recess. After students return from the break, paintings are resumed and soon finished. After class ends, students pose for free group and individual photos with their fantastic artwork!
