Last Night's Painting Class

Last night I did something pretty cool -- I attended a painting class taught by the amazing Evelyn Henson. She's ALSO a fellow Furman alum, and a fellow ADPi too, but (ahem) quite a bit younger than me. Anyway, she's tearing it up in the art world and she has also partnered with our local Make A Wish Foundation to teach art classes to novices like me and donate proceeds to a very deserving charity.

I wanted to share some photos of last night's class with you for anyone in the Charlotte area -- or anyone who may be an artist themselves and could take a page from Evelyn's book and plan a really fun girls night out like this!

(I WAS wearing shorts. Mental note = this top deserves longer shorts next time)

The class was taught at an art gallery. Each table was already stocked with canvases, acrylic paints, paintbrushes in two sizes, and water cups. Evelyn walked us step by step through the process of creating a gorgeous floral painting like hers and even helped those who wanted to customize their colors (I used the same colors as hers, because why mess up genius?!).

I'm SO glad I took this class. It was a step out of my comfort zone; I left both girls at home, obviously, and I knew no one else in the class! But it was a fabulous way to chat with some new ladies and try to hone a new skill.

And you know what? I think I might be making a trip to Michaels soon to pick up another canvas. I think this vase of flowers needs a mate!
