Corks & Canvases

Thursday | February 15 | 5:30-7:30 PM

The Feb 15 edition of the AMA’s Corks & Canvases Paint Party will focus on Vincent van Gogh’s most famous work, The Starry Night.

Grab your spouse, a date, or a friend, or paint solo at the latest Corks & Canvases Paint Party at the AMA! You can enjoy a glass of wine and snacks while you get step-by-step instructions on how to recreate a famous work of art. 

Van Gogh was inspired by the predawn eastern sky outside his window in June 1889 in a French asylum that he voluntarily entered for a year after mutilating his ear during an emotional breakdown in December 1888. The oil painting, now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, shows Venus and the moon, along with turbulent clouds and glowing stars above a sleeping town and a cypress tree that resembles a dark flame reaching up. 

This class is for all skill levels. Even if you have never used a paintbrush, you will leave the AMA Classroom with your own original artwork, one that you will be proud to hang on the wall at your home or office. The AMA will provide paint, brushes, and a 16×20 canvas, as well as refreshments. You can bring a favorite beverage or snack if you want.

Bimonthly classes are conducted in August, October, December, February, April, and June. Don’t wait too long when registering. Space at each of our painting parties has sold out weeks ahead of the event.

COST: $30 ($25 for AMA donors).
