Painting on the Porch

What is more Texan than spending some time on the front porch with your friends on a warm spring day? Bring your friends or meet new ones. Learn something new regardless of your skill level (All Levels Welcome). An artist from Plein Air Austin will do a demonstration, guiding you through the painting as you follow along on your own canvas, or strike out on your own creative adventure. Either way, at the end of the day, you’ll have a finished 8 x 10 acrylic painting.

"Paint and Puff" Events

None currently scheduled

This month we partner with Fifth Branch Farm LLC in Florence for a relaxing experience of Zen Doodling and CBD. There will be a brief presentation by Fifth Branch Farms explaining what CBD is and what the benefits of consumption are. Once you know all about it, you’ll be given the opportunity to puff your own free pre-roll, provided by the ladies at Fifth Branch Farms. Only if you wish to partake! 

We think CBD and art go well together because it's about self expression without feeling too critical. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy a guided drawing with local artist David Borden. He'll guide you through each step of creating a stream of consciousness, relaxing, free-drawing without expectation. All skill levels are welcome! No drawing ability necessary. David will show you how to create and combine various squiggles, hatch marks, and gestures to let your creativity flow.

Although there are no legal age limits to consume CBD in Texas, this event will be 18 and up! CBD is completely legal in the state of Texas and used to relieve anxiety and a variety of other aliments.

The studio has window units, but with the Texas heat, you'll want to dress to be comfortable in warm weather and bring something cold to drink.
