Guests will enter a sunlit plant-filled art studio and sit where they like. They have all the paint supplies and easels in front of them and I will offer each guest over 21 a cocktail, and for others water, tea or coffee. They are welcome to bring any additional beverages or food that they like to augment . We talk about the painting that we've chosen to teach, its background in art history or cultural context, as well as how they many innovate or vary upon the theme and where best to freestyle. Guests are welcome to completely freestyle from start to finish if they prefer, and there will be plenty of art inspiration all around. We begin the background, which is usually some free form abstract for a warm up, loosening everyone up and giving them confidence in their painterly instincts and possibilities. This is where the music becomes integral to the work, and we talk about movement and brush strokes. We then teach every part of the painting in a series of simple steps, basing each phase on a familiar shape or letter for the form, while explaining colors, and the dos and don't of paint mixing. As the paintings come to a finish, guests have found ways to create in their own language, creating a work of art to take home; to remember and embody the whole experience. Chicasso Studio is a total sensory experience it itself, and everyone who enters is thankful to have found it!
I am a full time Brooklyn artist who opens my private art studio weekly for Group painting sessions. I was an art instructor for a popular paint-n-sip co. in NYC, where I taught hundreds of classes to do paintings which I created step by step. My classes got the best results hands down. Many who’d never painted before gained confidence by discovering deeper aspects of painting. This made me want to teach more art-centric sessions from my studio, where I could curate a soulful art and music discovery experience. I pull from my years of in the music biz as a talent buyer, my experience craft bar tending and my passion for art and people to create a rich experience. Think Basquiat, Picasso, Haring, or Kandinsky to the sound of Coltrane, Nina Simone, Radiohead or Fela; a craft cocktail in one hand & paintbrush in the other.

Chicasso Studio is a stunner for everyone who walks in; the quintessential art studio with two full walls of warehouse windows and thus tons of sunlight, plants and art everywhere. We have nice sound system and, with my history in the music business, an expansive music selection. It is a straight Brooklyn art experience with nothing quite like it anywhere else.

I will provide a code for front door entry. There is street parking on the weekends, and public transportation is easily accessible. The area is originally industrial but rapidly gentrifying and reflects that. It is safe and gritty and Brooklyn.
