No experience necessary - our local artist Emily McPeek will guide you through all the steps to go from blank canvas to masterpiece.

&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;em&amp;gt;If you looked into my art studio, you&amp;amp;rsquo;d see paint stains all over the floor, randomly bundled up dirty paper towels, paint brushes strewn in a pile, a bottle of Pinot Noir by its empty stained glass, and a painting leaning on the wall overlooking all of this. I&amp;amp;rsquo;ve been painting for roughly 15 years and this system seems to work for me. I studied Fine Art at the University of Southern CA. During that time, I won the prestigious Arts in Action: Momentum Award sponsored by Volkswagen. The winning piece, &amp;amp;quot;Women Praying,&amp;amp;quot; was hung in the Smithsonian for the fall of 2011. &amp;lt;/em&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt; &amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;em&amp;gt;Later, my paintings &amp;amp;quot;L.A. Market&amp;amp;quot; and &amp;amp;quot;La Guanaca Seria&amp;amp;quot; were asked by the Kennedy Center to be hung in the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Since then I&amp;amp;rsquo;ve been moving from one teaching job to the other, mostly with kindergarteners and 1st -5th grade. With Paint Nite I&amp;amp;rsquo;m glad I can finally talk to people my own age. I may not be creating the elaborate and unnecessarily grandiose paintings I&amp;amp;rsquo;m used to, but I&amp;amp;rsquo;m glad I can teach others what I really know&amp;amp;hellip; how to paint while completely sloshed. Au revoir! &amp;lt;/em&amp;gt;En tot ziens!&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;
Emily did a great job in this new way of connecting via zoom. It was a small group with my adult daughter and 10 year old granddaughter and one other attendee. Emily's instructions were clear and always checking in to see how we were doing. The event we
She is so sweet! She made me feel very relaxed and I loved that she was from a completely different place then I was from. She is an amazing artist! Loved her techniques.
Great host! Very informative about what you need to do to make a beautiful painting! Lots of fun!
