The “Paint United Art Party” will offer first-time painters and anyone seeking a night of inspiration the chance to support the United Way of Delta County and the Bonifas Arts Center (BAC) while creating on Jan. 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the BAC.
“If you’ve never tried painting because you were convinced you were not an artist, this is a perfect way to learn while having fun,” said Pasqua Warstler, BAC executive director.
Using a brightly colored painting of two birds as a model (chosen to suit beginners), Instructor Eddie Moritz will guide attendees, demonstrating each step, as they create their own acrylic paintings, said Corinne Powers, BAC education coordinator.
This method “brings out artistic talent people don’t realize they have,” said Julie Mallard, United Way executive director. “People are surprised what they are able to do.”
Attendees are free to change colors or other elements, said Powers. Part of the fun, said Mallard, is seeing how different each painting is.
The party costs $40, materials and light refreshments included, and attendees are invited to bring their beverage of choice, said Mallard.
