It has been a crazy few weeks. Today, a couple of friends and I took a break and made the drive down to Lancaster, PA, to use a livingsocial deal for a painting class. I’ve been to a (BYOB) painting class before, and had certain expectations of the teaching/painting process. But this class actually blew those out of the water.
Instead of painting the same prescribed image onto many canvases using the “Put yellow here, put red here, put blue here” method, the painting class at Annex 24 really allowed us to do our own thing.
The staff really encouraged (and helped) us to paint whatever inspired us. One friend decided to paint a picture of her new puppy, and my other friend decided to do an abstract/modern take on sunflowers. I found a painting in a book they passed around for inspiration and decided to paint an old, weathered wall and window.
The class lasted from 1-4 PM on a Sunday afternoon. It included all of the paint and brushes we needed to complete our masterpieces. Many of our classmates painted something along the class theme of “wine bottle”, though only one or two people actually reproduced the paintings at the front of the gallery. I would highly recommend this painting class to anyone who is looking for something to do on Sunday in Lancaster, PA!
