Paint the Town, an event series that normally moves from location to location (typically restaurants) now has a permanent studio in Allentown. The roaming social painting classes have become so popular that a concrete location was needed in order to continue on with the fast paced movement. Now the group can opt to stay put when it wants, creating a dedicated paint scene in its studio, or it can bebop around town when it prefers, taking its group paint classes/sessions on the road.
“Art allows me to communicate on canvas and now I get to share that passion and love of art with the City of Buffalo,” says studio owner Jarael Adams, who started the painting phenomenon because he wanted to share his love of the pastime with people of all ages and abilities.
From therapeutic reasons to social engagement, there are myriad motivations to be part of the action. Plus, with the addition of the studio, Paint the Town will now be able to add live model drawing classes, gallery space and open studio sessions to its list of offerings.
Paint the Town will be hosting a grand opening celebration at its studio on April 10, 2015. The community is welcome to attend the event, and learn more about the classes and the socials. The opening will feature live painting by Jarael Adams, and music by Toney Rhodes and DJ Bandana Black. There will be refreshments available.
