Friday’s BYOB at the Studio - Summer 2013 projects

Groups of 15 or fewer students sip libations brought from home while applying paint to a canvas pres-ketched with the outline of a famous painting. All art-related materials are supplied, including easels, acrylic paints, brushes, and canvases. CLICK HERE TO SEE PICTURES OF OUR PREVIOUS BYOB PARTIES...
Art helps people reach a wide audience without shouting from the top of radio towers, provocatively dancing behind a local TV field reporter, or tying speech bubbles to migrating birds. Express yourself painting from masters like Monet, van Gogh and Picasso in this exciting class. it doesn’t matter if you never have painted before or if you just want to practice your skills. You will be thrilled with the result achieved in only 2 hours.

Come join us from 6:30pm to 8:30pm for a very relaxing painting session at the studio, No experience required.

Burgeoning artists grasp colorful bouquets of used packaging and crumpled paper as they gather in the 1,200-square-foot studio. The room reverberates with strains of Spanish guitar or the honey-like smoothness of Nina Simone and Dean Martin. Karla Caprali stands in the center, explaining composition and balance as students non-competitively mold their castoff items into freestanding sculptures. Similar displays of inventive creation characterize the Art Academy at Caprali Studio, where owner and artist Karla limits the size of each of her classes, allowing her to shower students with the proper amount of encouragement and constructive critiques. Karla maintains her class sizes even when instruction spills out into her studio backyard, where pupils breathe in open air as they hone woodworking skills, orchestrate large-scale installations, or quickly sketch a cloud shaped like a fruit bowl.
