Paint&Sip refers to a fun and relaxing 2-3 hour social gathering that combines creating instructor-led art with a casual wine/coffee event with friends, family, and/or co-workers.  Instruction is meant for artists at all levels, even beginners and self-proclaimed “non-artists.”  Seriously folks, relax!  It’ll be okay!   (It’s more about the wine anyway, isn’t it?)


***Fundraiser-all proceeds to benefit PSIMakers***


HOW DOES IT WORK?
On the night of the class, you’ll bring any drinks/food (artists must be 21 years of age to consume alcohol), get inspired about letting go of all of the preconceived notions you may have about art journaling, see some sample art journals, and then get busy experimenting and creating in your very own art journal. Your material fee will cover whatever you make.  (And you’ll have a goodie bag full of supplies and consumables to take home with you too!)

Part #2 builds off of the first class, and includes a re-cap of the 1st class content, and then dives into how to lead and follow turns of various flavors, and introduces the triple-step.

Make your art POP with dimension by adding depth and a glass like finish using Resin.  Resin is a two-part epoxy that is equivalent to 50 coats of varnish!  The art of working with Resin is relatively easy but it’s good to be shown some of the tricks, tips and downfalls of working with it.  Once you have played around with resin it becomes addicting and soon you will be wanting to pour this stuff on everything!  Beware!
