Paint Monkey

23 Sep

This past Friday, I took a Paint & Sip class with friends at Paint Monkey in Lawrenceville. It was so fun to be out doing something different and creative. We did the Pittsburgh Skyline painting, and Mr. Beez even declared my painting to be “not bad”! That’s an accomplishment!

They offer a variety of different painting styles. I would love to take the Lichtenstein, Kandinsky or Seasons classes. They sketch the outline on the canvas ahead of time, and give plenty of instruction, so that even the artistically hopeless like me can put together a decent picture.

The classes are a little pricey to take them on a whim, it’s about $50/class, and they are BYOB. They run right around dinnertime–starting around 6:30 or 7. Although we didn’t go out to eat afterward, I think it would be a perfect evening to go to a painting class there, and then stroll next door for dinner at Kaleidoscope Cafe.

On an unrelated but equally interesting note, the No Name Players are doing a fascinating SWAN day project to support women in the arts. I’m going to be interviewed as part of their project, and if you’re a woman in Pittsburgh, you should contact them to participate, too!
