You walk into the studio, easels are set up with blank canvases and there is a featured selection in the front of the room. You sit down in front of one of the easels. By the end of the event, this blank canvas in front of you will be filled with images and colors much like what you see in front. You may not know what you are doing, but fear not, there is a studio artist present that will give step-by-step guidance as you make your first and final brushstrokes. There is laughing and smiling occurring around you and glasses of wine being consumed. And to think you were going to stay at home tonight and just watch Netflix.
