Private Family Art Sessions
Family Art Session
Simply put, our Private Family Art Session is a memorable, joyful art experience in which the whole family participates (or it’s a fun Date Night as well)! It’s a priceless family bonding experience involving movement, making creative choices together, collaboration, cooperation, laughter and love.
Our favorite medium for this type of art experience is layered mixed media, a process in which you build up layers of oil pastel, chalk pastel, different types of paints and textures. This process offers many unique ways to personalize and customize your art in ways that are meaningful to your family, making the final piece a cherished heirloom and one that you will proudly have in your family for years to come! All family members age 1-100 can participate and make their mark!
Prior to your session, we’ll get input from you as to color and size preferences so we can pre-select a color palette and suggest a curated collection of art materials that we think will complement what you have in mind. You can also leave it completely up to us to give you suggestions! During the session, our knowledgable staff of teaching artists will be there to guide you as your “creative cruise directors” on this family adventure! We’re happy to offer suggestions, or just stay out of your way and refill paint + wash your brushes – you tell us!
Our Private Family Art Sessions are a offered on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons (advance booking required, these are quite popular and sometimes book out far in advance – call for availability!). Available times are 1 or 1.5 hours.
The base cost for a 1 hour workshop is $350 or a 1.5 hour workshop $425, + the cost of the canvas (at our wholesale cost). All other art materials are included (paint, pastels, etc.). There are many types of wrapped canvas profiles ranging from very economical to more expensive gallery profiles, and economical unwrapped canvas as well (that would have to be stretched if you chose to frame it, vs. hanging on the wall as is or mounting. We are also happy to discuss other painting surfaces as well (wood, metal, heavyweight paper, etc.). Together, we’ll come up with the perfect solution to fit your budget!
