What an exciting experience opening and operating Art in the Vine has been.  We have made some incredible friends who have made some wonderful suggestions.  We heard you!  

Your ideas inspire so much.  We are filling up the gallery with new painting ideas every week, and because of you, we have created Cocktails and Canvases, an unstructured class where you come and get your own creativity going and we supply the means.

You wanted to learn other media and we have found some truly incredible guests artists to teach.

You have asked about kid’s classes for this summer and we are preparing them now. This summer, we will be offering Summer Camps for Kids in June and July.  More information will be added to the web site soon!

Look at the Calendar to see what you/we have come up with! We are by no means finished so keep your ideas coming.  Just remember, it may take us some time,  but we will do our best to get it done.

Guest Artists = More exciting classes

With your suggestions, we found some amazing artists to teach various classes.  All of the Guest Artists bring a special something to each class and most of them are experienced teachers as well as very talented artists.

Robert Garden will be teaching a Watercolor class on April 16th from 6:30-9:30.  Robert is a master painter in watercolor and oil painting.  He has been teaching for over 3 decades.   I am so excited to add his skills and experience to a class in our studio.  

Beverly Neal will be teaching a Metal Embossing Class, on April 23rd from 1-4 and from 7-10.  In this class, you will be able to create your own wine bottle labels.  All the materials you need will be provided, including the bottles.  If you would like to gift a full bottle of wine, please bring the wine of your choice.  What a great gift to a friend!

Paula Robinson is an amazingly gifted and versatile artist.  She works with graphite, prisma color, pastel, watercolor, and oil paints. Paula will be teaching a Graphite Class on May 5th from 2-5.  You will learn shading techniques while creating some beautiful flowers.  

Susan Garden recently taught an oil painting class at The Vine. The class was amazing! I personally took this class and loved it! Susan will be teaching another Oil Painting Class on May 7th from 6:30-9:30.  She teaches color theory as well as painting techniques in a slow paced manner, making beginners feel very comfortable.
