Paint & Chill
Saturday, January 30, 6-8 pm EST / 3-5 pm PST
Join artists Melissa Forman and Paul Richmond for a relaxing, fun virtual paint night for adults. No artistic experience is required – just a desire to chill and enjoy getting in touch with your creative side. In this session, we’ll be painting a colorful landscape.
Here’s a link to an inexpensive recommended supply list from Blick: Art Supplies. These are just suggestions. You are welcome to work with whatever materials you would like.
Melissa and Paul will guide you step-by-step through the painting process, with lots of stories and laughs along the way! All proceeds will benefit Art Makes Us, an organization dedicated to providing opportunities for each individual to discover and nurture the artist within.
Melissa Forman spends her time creating a richly visual world filled with characters created from an opulent, mysterious, and often eerie imagination. Her lovely, idealized figures seem lost in their own worlds, drifting between the 16th, 18th, 19th and 21st centuries. Melissa has been drawing and painting commissioned portraits since she was 14. She attended the Columbus College of Art and Design and graduated with a BFA in 2002. She now lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio. Her personal work has been shown in galleries around the world, from New York City to Seattle to Los Angeles to Berlin, Germany to Bristol, England.
