Rooftop Studio Party | Create Soak Stain Paintings

from 55.00

September 21, 5-7:30PM
207 Bowery Rooftop

Ever look at an abstract painting and think: “I can do that!”? Here’s your chance to try!

Learn about Abstract Expressionist painters who were part of the “Color Field” movement, then make your own abstract paintings! During this event we’ll learn about iconic artists, including Helen Frankenthaler, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. Then we’ll get hands-on in our studio party, where we’ll make our own paintings using Helen Frankenthaler’s signature “soak stain technique” of pouring and soaking bright, beautiful colors into huge canvases.

Tickets include open bar of beer and wine. Event takes place on a private rooftop.

What to expect

We’ll kick off the event with a short lesson on iconic Color Field Painters, including their place within the Abstract Expressionist movement, historical context and prevalent Color Field techniques. After the lesson, we’ll put on our coveralls and head up to the roof, where we can get messy. Expect canvases covering the floor, cans of paint to experiment with, and music and drinks to fuel your inspiration. All that’s left is to make a masterpiece!
