You know the feeling. You get itchy, can’t sit still, pop online to keep yourself distracted for a little while longer. You’re overdue for a whimsy fix, and nothing will satiate the need until you’re sitting on a cozy stool and have that brush in hand, and enjoying a peach Izzy.
You’re the type that checks our calendar weekly for new art, or maybe to see if the painting you’ve been waiting to do (AGAIN!) has made its way back to the calendar yet. (Some of you reading this are saying, “What is she jabbering on about?! No one is that crazy about painting!” To those folks, I’m saying YES! We Whimsians are that crazy, and this is me peer-pressuring you to drink the crazy water with us, you’ll love it!)
My dear, fellow Whimsy fanatics who want a new way to get your kicks, I’m here to tell you that Whimsy has a Meetup group specifically for the artist who is looking to try something a little different from our traditional classes but keep the fun, all while meeting new friends that love Whimsy as much as you do!
In past Whimsy Paint and Sip Art Club sessions, we have painted pumpkins, enjoyed an outing to the zoo to sketch the animals, learned to paint from our cherished photos, and covered some more in-depth landscape painting skills.
Lindsey, our amazingly talented lead art instructor loves the classes because she gets to cover techniques that aren’t always part of a typical Whimsy class and has more one-on-one time to help the artists develop their own style of art. She says, “I enjoy sharing different processes to build up a painting. Teaching people how build upon their own compositions and ideas. Different techniques. Its a great way to get people together and enjoy different activities and learn new things.”
We have some amazing new ideas for Whimsy’s Art Club in 2015! We’re bringing in new items to paint on, guest artists, new techniques, maybe a craft or two, and definitely a few fun field trips! As always, all experience levels are invited to attend!
Once a month, we will provide you with details about our Whimsy Art Club activity in our email newsletter and on Facebook. Most classes cost $25 unless we go to a location outside the studio. To sign up or find out more details about the current month’s event, visit:
We are so excited to treat all of our fans to some really special experiences that will awaken your inner artist or give him a lil’ jolt! Never fear! If you’re jonesing for some paint on your hands, we’ve got the perfect anecdote! Can’t wait to see you at the Whimsy Paint and Sip Art Club Meetup!!!
