Painting Parties have been growing in popularity during the last 7 years. The concept originated in a small town near New Orleans, and the idea quickly spread throughout the south.
We are delighted to be introducing this "Formula for Fun" to the Central Coast and South Bay! With the abundance of people here who love fine art, fine wine, a variety of excellent music, and who appreciate the astounding natural beauty all around us, this is a party concept whose time has come.
Matisse and Merlot™ Painting Parties are designed to encourage people to have a GREAT time as they explore their innate sense of appreciation for color, form, light and composition.
Our Painting Parties are starting out in the town we love that LOVES to party: Santa Cruz!
