An evening of artistic exploration
This event is designed to enrich, relax, and delight you!
Imagine yourself in the south of France, enjoying a crisp fall evening with the scent of lavender and freshly cut hay filling the air. Surveying the harvest landscape and seasonal light, we will study and paint in the style of Impressionist master Claude Monet.
Never painted? Don’t worry, we will guide you through the entire process. Using acrylic paint on canvas we will explore Monet’s study of light using his “Haystack” painting series as a guide. Along with a brief history of Impressionism in art and music we will learn a little about the French countryside in the time before the end of the 19th century.
$50 secures your spot for the evening and includes inspired drinks, food, painting, and fun!
Only 25 spots are available, so buy your ticket today.

Laura Janes is a fine artist specializing in painting natural forms. Her work is informed by the raw, organic beauty of the mountains, deserts, and oceans. She draws inspiration from elements found in the natural world, including desert plants, trees, water, and rocks.
For Janes, nature is an endless, complex seduction, resulting in art that is always an affair of the heart, presented with attraction, enchantment, and acute clarity. She works primarily in acrylic on canvas as well as in watercolor, and occasionally creates mixed media pieces using images, gold and silver leaf, and encaustic materials.
