Our art classes are more than learning the techniques of acrylic painting, They're about taking time out for you, no kids, no spouse, no distractions from your everyday routine. At Paint Monkey we believe everyone has a creative side and we want to show you yours. We all have a style and it will come across in your paintings. When you paint, you'll get lost in your painting, a perfect escape. You'll learn about the different brushes, paints, color theory, composition, design and what makes a good painting better.
The classes will be taught by Joe Groom and Jesse Seybert. Combined they have over 40 years of painting experience. Joe is a New York City native and attended the High School of Art & Design and received a scholarship to Parsons School of Design. He went into advertising and owning his own agency. He has worked with many high profile companies. He is a self taught painter and loves to share his knowledge and skill, a real people person.
Jesse Seybert, is a Western PA native and a graduate of Slippery Rock. You can't miss her, She's the one with blue hair and a big personality. She has been formally taught, but always puts her own spin on her paintings.
You'll be in good hands with Joe and Jesse. They are very encouraging, they listen and will guide you through your masterpieces. So let's get started. Questions, call we will have the answers. Looking forward to a creative, enjoyable, successful, zen-like experience.
Note: We will continue on Wednesdays, same time. We will not have class the week of Thanksgiving, 11/23/22.
