Klee AbstractsLast week in our After School Mixed Media Art Class at Azalea City Center for the Arts we continued our study of Paul Klee and his famous quote “A line is a dot that went for a walk.” We took our dots for a walk with some abstract lines and then filled in with some watercolor blending. The students practiced their blending to the side so they could work on making their own custom colors.

 

Kandinsky CirclesThis week we learned about lawyer-turned-artists Wassily Kandinsky and worked on our own oil pastel versions of Kandinsky’s “Squares with Concentric Circles.”

Next week we’ll be painting again so stay tuned for pictures.

There are still seats available in the Mixed Media Art Class that meets on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30pm at the Azalea City Center for the Arts (Dauphin & I-65).

Call 251-343-2423 for more information or to register.

CardboardeauxSpotted this sign at LoDa Artwalk last night. LOVE it and had to get a picture (even though it brought more than a few stares from passers-by).

We often get questions about what you can bring to our BYOB Sip & Paint Open Studio sessions and the answer is – your favorite beverage (must be 21+ for adult beverages of course). Earlier this week we had lots of Corona and Dos Equis being enjoyed while we hosted some international guests from South America (and I can neither confirm or deny if the Most Interesting Man in the World was among them). Some painters bring mimosas, some bring cocktails, some bring non-alcoholic sparkling cider or other soft drinks, but of course many bring their favorite wine.

We want you to relax and enjoy your painting experience so if you enjoy a nice Cardboardeaux – you’re welcome to grab a box and bring it to Open Studio tonight from 5:30-9:30pm. Call 251-343-2423 for reservations.

090915a We had a fantastic evening last night with a corporate teambuilding paint party with participants in town on business from all over the US as well as Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Mexico and Sweden.

090915cThey arrived by shuttle from their downtown hotel, enjoyed food delivered by Ashland Midtown Pub and the beer and wine came from the store right across Old Shell Rd. from the studio. Adding to the evening’s fun was a contest among colleagues for the best painting. At the end of the night we numbered all the paintings and participants voted. The Halloween Kitty won by a landslide (front and center in the picture below) and the artist won a travel art kit to take home.

090915bIt was great fun for everyone as colleagues from around the world were able to relax and get acquainted. In fact many commented about how relaxing it was to spend the evening painting, a sentiment we hear often in the studio.

090915If you are looking for a new twist on teambuilding events for your office consider a paint party. We host workplace groups large and small. Some groups come in for an evening event with dinner or appetizers (sometimes potluck) while others reserve in the afternoon and provide lunch for their staff. Just in the last year, we’ve hosted parties for law offices, heavy industry, doctor and dentists offices, grocery store employees, government office employees, firefighters, faculty parties and many, many more. We also host holiday office parties and can bring the party to your location in the Mobile and Baldwin County area. Call 251-343-2423 for reservations.
