Albany Museum of Art Painting Party Is Set for Thursday Evening, Aug 11
The Aug 11 session will focus on the Impressionist work of Monet. Participants 21 and older will be guided on how to create the painting in a relaxed setting with background music. Snacks, wine, and soft drinks will be served, and participants are free to bring a favorite beverage or snack as well.
“Re-creating a famous painting while enjoying a glass of wine and good company is proving to be a popular way to spend an enjoyable evening,” Vanoteghem said. “You can paint solo, bring a friend, or make it a date night. You might make some new friends during the evening. Everyone is welcome!”
The workshop is designed for all levels of skills, she said. “Even if you have never picked up a paintbrush before, you will go home with an original work of art that you will be proud of,” Vanoteghem said. “There is no pressure, just an evening of contagious creativity!”
While the movement first met resistance from the art community, that hostility gave way to the view that Impressionist painters had created a fresh, original visual art that steadily gained popularity with the public.
Registration for the Monet Paint Party is $25 for Albany Museum of Art members or $30 for non-members. For secure online registration, click HERE.
- Homecoming, which features works from the Albany Museum of Art Permanent Collection, is in all galleries May 12-Aug 13, 2022.
