Your host

Janace Marie has been painting for fifteen years. Art was taken to a professional level when moving to Georgia to attend Savannah College of Art and Design in 2004. Here, learning was stretched while tapping into other avenues, such with digital design, photography, visual effects, and in motion picture and music video production. With this, she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Design and Visual Communications, exploring additional training in sciences and psychology. After a break from the art world and some traveling, she now credits life's experiences and deeper mysteries as her greatest teacher and source of inspiration. Eventually returning to Durham, NC, she spent some time working along side the Health Arts Network team for Duke, both on campus and in the hospital for gallery set ups, and healing through art therapy. Though at the end of the day, has found her heart to always belong with her first love of painting. "People may misunderstand the role of an artist," she recalls, "thinking that they just play. But design is a real concept that impacts our lives everyday without most of us ever considering it. Without this world, there wouldn't be your favorite clothing lines, music album art, DVD covers, or food packagings. Colors, for instance, are scientifically measured at different temperatures and have been proven to have a psycological affect on our moods and environment." She goes on. "As a professional, I can tell you not to dismiss those ads you see on televison and the internet. The fonts and designs were all strategically picked for a reason, not just to look pretty, but also to send a message." It has been a long time goal of her's to cultivate a creative space where people can come together for the sake of art and growing together in a way that society often limits us, a place where happiness is inspired, people are equalized, and where everyone has a freedom of self. So come out, relax, unwind, and drink creatively away from the mundane world. It's a judgment free zone. Here you can be walked through step by step instructions, or you can do what you please. Thinking outside of the box WILL be encouraged! Beginners and advanced artists of all skill levels are welcome. In these courses a coverage of a variety of subjects can be expected. From principles of design, color theory, depth of perspective, painting techniques, contrast, and more. This is perfect for a date night, an evening with the girls, or sign up to simply make more friends in the community. We supply the materials, all you have to do is come and explore a side to yourself you may have never known you had. It's fun, it's different, and you'll have a painting to take with you and show throughout the ages. Life is what you make it. Fun is how you have it. Create the things you wish existed. Paint Nite caters to an adult oriented atmosphere. There is drinking involved and sometimes content that is unsuitable for minors. All events are absolutely 21 and up! Please make arrangements for small children. Find us on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PaintNiteDurhamNC
