Have you ever wanted to unleash your inner Picasso or O’Keefe but didn’t know where to go? Do you have a family reunion or social gathering to plan and want a creative idea for your group to participate in? The Painted Cork Art Studio in Santa Cruz’s midtown is a casual, comfortable local art space where guests can get their creative juices flowing as a professional art instructor guides them through an acrylic-on-canvas painting class while they enjoy their favorite wine, beer or non-alcoholic beverage and snacks. Art supplies (brushes, paints, canvases, easels, and aprons) are included with each class. Using step-by-step instruction, students are walked through the process of creating their own painting, brush stroke by brush stroke. No experience is necessary!
