I signed Joel up for a 3 hour guided canvas painting session at Arteastiq recently. It describes itself as a social painting and tea sipping place. Thus, Arteastiq is divided into two parts, the first part is a painting studio, while the other part offers food and beverage in a plush setting.
You can bring a picture of what you want to paint, or you can choose from the files or books available. While we were there, a little boy wanted a picture of a race car, which they did not have. The teacher was kind to go online and chose one together with him. The kids got a 50 x 50 cm canvas, but if you have more creativity to unleash, there is a bigger one at 60 x 80 cm.
Joel chose a picture from their files, and got to work straight away with the teacher’s assistance. I had a few errands to run, and left him there in their good care. Before I left, I ordered a hot chocolate for him from the menu, as a drink was included in the session. I got a call 2 hours later, informing me that he has completed his art.
The canvas turned out happy and bright, and I’m glad Joel did not follow the picture to a T, but added some of his own ideas to it. We’re going to let him choose which part of the house this one is hanging from!
