At Sunday Is Fun Day At Tipsy Paint Monet, Klimt and Picasso would have been proud. Chicagoland Elites and guests unleashed their inner-artist selves and discovered a new found talent for fine art at Chicago North Shore’s inaugural Elite event in Glenview.
Led by artist instructor extraordinaire Krystyna and guided by Tipsy Paint (Official, Facebook,Twitter) studio owner Hap Proesel, everyone painted the afternoon away. Learning to paint a pre-selected work of art, each painting ended up being different from the next and the process was made easy with lots of hands-on tips and one-on-one suggestions.
A little iPhone movie showing the beginning stages...
Working hard (okay more like hardly working), everyone filled their cups with hand-picked wine selections and mouthwatering bites from El Mexican Restaurant (Official, Twitter). Two lucky winners were also chosen for a raffle prize art book and each artist left with their very own masterpiece in hand.
Jen Eisen, co-owner of newly opened El Mexican Restaurant (Official,Twitter) in Glenview popped in with cute take-out-boxes filled with fresh quinoa salad (with cucumber, red onion & mint in orange vinaigrette) and homemade lime tortilla chips with guacamole and chunky salsa for dipping. So scrumpcious, some even made the stop after the event to try the tacos.
An afternoon to be remembered, you can read the reviews right here. Featured photographer Nicole Thomas of Nicole Thomas Photography (Official) snuck her way around the room like a cat, bringing out the spirit and essence of her subjects. See what her mind’s eye captured right here. And Elite Mark S was also on the scene with his trusty camera (before he started painting of course) and you can view his snaps here.
Keep on creating!
