Creative Spirituality: Paint & Sip Class
November 26, 2021 @ 6:00 pm—8:00 pm CST$35
Unlock your creativity with a focus on calmness.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist, Katye from Prism Studios will help you create a beautiful piece of art. She will walk you through the step-by-step process to paint Stormclouds and Sunsets–your own masterpiece that you can be proud to show off to your family and friends. This two-hour event will include a meditation to open up up creative spirit, an introduction to the piece, some prep work, and plenty of breaks to socialize and have fun. The focus will be on trying something new in a calm, relaxed environment. Think of if it as paint-by-numbers with a live guide. You will take your finished painting home with you. Explore your creative side while sharing the moment and experience with your friends. Absolutely no artistic experience necessary!
Bring your favorite beverages (BYO alcoholic beverages), people, and snacks. We’ll supply everything else: paint, brushes, easels, canvas, aprons, and glasses. Wear something you are comfortable getting paint on.
Who Can Attend?
Guests must be at least 12 years old to paint and at least 21 years old to consume alcohol.
This Creative Spirituality workshop is presented in collaboration with Prism Studios, a fem-owned, queer-owned, arts initiative with a focus on inclusion, diversity, and creativity.
ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR:
KTKannibal to their fans and patrons, Katye Newhouse (They/she) is an acrylic painter from Champaign. A lifelong love of art led Katye to take a year of drawing courses at Parkland Community College to hone the skills they acquired from teachings from their Great Grandmother in childhood, also a professional painter. The next few years were spent moving cross country with their spouse for military service. Upon resettling in their native town of Champaign, Katye relaunched their painting career beginning the first installment in their Tarot series in 2019, with the official launch of KTKannibal Acrylics in early 2021. Katye’s painting focuses on the playful, color-filled, and bold figures that trigger strong emotions in their viewers. They draw inspiration not only from traditional painters like Van Gogh, and Toulouse-Lautrec but also from modern heightened reality media sources such as Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal and experimental folk band Heilung.
