Brushstrokes

November 11th, 2016

 

Everyone loves a painting party, and at Brushstrokes you can customize your event based on age, preferences and goals! Located in the heart of old downtown Tustin, you can schedule a private event or party any time and day of the week! However, you can also drop in during open studio hours and dive right into a painting frenzy. Up to 40 painters can join a private event, so you can imagine that making “fun art” (not fine art!) can turn into a real gala.

During open painting sessions, $30 gets you a 16×20 canvas, paint, brushes and an apron, and you can paint whatever you like or choose from the impressive gallery of options. Plan your child’s birthday party, a co-worker happy hour event, or make your next anniversary extra special. Leave the supplies and cleanup to the pros, and enjoy painting in a relaxed atmosphere.

A Masterpiece in the Works

Whether you’ve painted professionally before or never picked up a brush in your life, all ages and abilities are welcome. Instruction can be provided, or you can paint in peace. At Brushstrokes, you’re the master artist. Customize your next event, and call today to talk to a party planning pro.

Painting is a relaxing, calming, yet fun-filled hobby. From first dates to corporate bonding events, the paint can really fuse you and your party together. What will you create on canvas?
