Art Session for Couples: Luxury Costumed Art Experience
Costumes, props, lights, and light furnishings are brought to your setting. Or, come to ours! A costumer and stylist help prepare you for your big entrance. Then, enjoy live music in your choice of genre, sip and snack on delicious treats, and either model or be the artist —creating large-scale portrait paintings! Imagine, your husband in a Tarzan outfit, reclining on a tufted chaise, draped in faux fur bearskin. Imagine painting his likeness with confidence and a twinkle in your eye. Imagine him painting you as an elegant lady, her small pet on her skirted lap, as the shoulder of her gown gently slips off the shoulder. So much fun and the painting part will be a cinch— you will use a mini projector to easily apply your image to the canvas, acting as a guide for your painting. A fun way to make art, without art school.
You play being model and painter — it's magic.
