How to throw
The Best Adult Art Party
Choose the party type that you and your guests will enjoy creating.
Set a date for the party and send invitations by email. They can include the link to the workshop you chose for easy booking. If you don't have enough room for everyone to sit at a table, counter or other space, consider holding in a restaurant. We have some local connections we work with.
Plan your menu. Keep it simple. Finger foods and small bites work best so busy hands can stay busy.and make large batches of cocktails or serve bottles of wine for beverages or non alcoholic punch or drinks for those that prefer them. Check out this link for drink ideas.
Choose some music. It can be as easy as the radio or as fun as a music playlist, coordinating the music with the theme of the party.
Arrange furniture so that each guest has enough room for his or her easel and supplies at a table and has a chair.
Check your lighting. Make sure guests will be able to see to paint and blend colors properly. Usually an over head light or an extra table lamp will do.
Put on your paint clothes, pour yourself a drink and relax. You've got this.
French painter Claude Monet
and French red wines. Monet is best known
for his lush paintings of water lilies,
and his famous garden of Giverny.
Monet enjoyed a few sips
everyday at lunch
before returning to work.
Perhaps this is why his work always
seems relaxed and effortless.
Drinks Named after Famous Artists.
The Bellini - Benvenuto Cellini was one of the most important Mannerist artists, and his personal life was just as colorful as his professional one. He was famous for elevating Venetian painting by using bold colors that brought the work to life. His work supposedly the inventor of the Bellini, to create the signature drink. According to the story, the peach color of the Bellini—a sweet combo of white peach puree and sparkling Prosecco—reminded Cipriani of the color of a toga featured in one of Bellini’s paintings. Cipriani first served the drink at his Venice establishment, Harry's Bar, which was frequented by the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Truman Capote, and Woody Allen.
DaVinci, The archetypal Renaissance man owned his own vineyard, which he was given as payment, for painting “The Last Supper.” Last year, after a decade of research, Italian experts opened Da Vinci’s newly rebuilt vineyard to the public. His prefered vino? Malvasia di Candia—a crisp white wine grown in the Emilia Romagna region, south of Milan.
He loved Absolut vodka
bottles so much he created
the brand’s first original piece
of artwork. He also made
Martini & Rossi ads during the
’50s and ’60s. His drink choice reflects the era: the ’50s were all about the three-martini lunch.
