Melody Hunt commented, “Since its inception five years ago, these painting parties have not only left me with a wall full of beautiful paintings, but have developed wonderful friendships such as with local artist Martha Sperling, who has become a fabulous asset to the success of these parties.” Sandy Vallely further added, “All are welcome to attend from novice to advanced artists. It’s a super fun atmosphere regardless of your skill level.”

Each session is $60 a person and takes place from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm at the charming one-room Solebury schoolhouse. Appetizers along with all art supplies are provided for participants to create their masterpieces. Simply bring your creative energy and if you choose, bring an adult beverage of your choice.
