Sixteen men and women met for an evening of food, drink, art instruction, and creativity. After three hours there were sixteen perspectives on Monet’s “Red Poppies.” Cindy Cervoni has opened a studio in Hamburg, NY. Simply called ‘Cheers to Monet’, it is a trendy atmosphere of social cultural entertainment certain to leave visitors laughing and heading home with motivation to engage with their newly discovered internal [arteest].
My interest piqued when friends in other states shared group pictures of their reproductions. It looked like fun but I did not expect an invitation to attend a gathering so close to home. I did not know much about the process but I had the time of my life creating my “Red Poppies,” and want people to experience the fun by attending a party for themselves. If anyone is reluctant to accept an invitation, I promise- attend. It is a personality profit and provides an original piece to adorn your home.
The group collectively chooses a Monet to paint. Majority rules since Cindy will be teaching/painting one for the class to reproduce according to their individual painting style or whim. Half the fun is taking studio-roaming breaks. Between stages for the paint to dry, the chance to walk around and get a close up of others’ progress is enlightening and sobering. Some people seem to be born painters. It is amazing the different styles that abound for the same basic template. Great fun.
All the details are on the website and FaceBook, things such as ten people minimum for Cindy and her assistant Lynn to prepare for. Canvases, paint, supplies, and atmosphere are provided in the registration cost. Group organizers and party goers can bring their own sodas, snacks, or libations to enhance the creativity as needed.
The space is small but when entering colorful canvases of Monet reproductions cover the walls. Here are the contact details. You will not be disappointed.
