Poppies in the Rain,
23 Nov. 2019, 10 A.M.-1 P.M.
This November, we are painting “Poppies in the Rain” in honor of Veteran’s Day. 10% of each sign-up will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
During WWI, brigade surgeon Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was struck by the red poppies growing out of a desolate earth during a bleak and harsh war and wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields.” McCrae’s image of red poppy made the poppy a symbol of the blood shed during battle.
We will paint the red poppies in remembrance of those who gave their lives for our freedom and in honor of those who continue to dedicate their lives to protect that freedom.
Brunch items, coffee, tea, and mimosas will be available as you paint.
June 28th: Sangria Seas
Join us for an Art Escape and paint Sangria Seas.
Class is $45 and includes supplies, instruction, and one glass of Sangria!
“Window to Spring”
What better way to welcome Spring than to throw open our windows! The lupines are in honor of my Grandad, who gave me lupine seeds from his garden to add to mine. While the seeds didn’t grow, I will honor him in this painting. The lupine, meaning “of the wolf,” is a flower that symbolizes imagination, happiness, healing, and protection, perhaps because the lupine was believed to both choke out weeds and help the soil. As we enter this Spring, throw your window open to new beginnings and enjoy the beauty of new life!
Class includes 11×14 canvas, supplies, instruction, and fun! 1 complimentary mimosa per guest.
February Art Night: February 15th, 2019
“La Ville d’Amore“
Due to the overwhelming requests, we will be painting Paris this February. Join us to paint “La Ville D’Amore,” or “City of Love,” on Feb. 15th, 6:30-9:30 P.M. Remember, class space is limited, so reserve your spot now.
Also, I’ve had requests to adapt the painting, so if you want to paint just a woman holding a red umbrella rather than the couple, send me that message as you check out!
Looking forward to our next Wine & Design night! Cheers!
Jan. 18th, 7-9:30 P.M.: “Winter Sentinel”
Wine and Design is back at the Cellars! Join us at Warm Springs Cellars on Jan. 18th, 7-9:30, to paint “Winter Sentinel.” Cost $40.
Just as Winter and the New Year, represents a time of transition and new beginnings, the word “cardinal,” which comes from the Latin word cardo, meaning “hinge” or “axis,” represents doors. The cardinal is viewed as the “hinge on the doorway,” bearing messages back and forth between Earth and Spirit.
Other myths surrounding cardinals come from how they live their lives. Cardinals mate for life and are non-migratory birds; they live their lives in their immediate area, protecting their home and family. When a cardinal couple gives birth, both parents work together to assure the health, welfare, and security of their family. Therefore, the cardinal also represents renewal, good health, happy relationships, monogamy, and protection. They are both messengers and reminders of what is important in our lives so the perfect painting to begin our New Year!
Join us for our Happy Hallowine event, Oct. 27th, 7-10 P.M. We will hold costume contests throughout the evening with fun prizes for most creative, best couple, and scariest. Minimum $10 purchase for contest entry. Live music by Jack Dalton entertainment.
