Gaudy Giggles Family Paint Night

August 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join Jen Barratt, founder of Gaudy Giggles Paint Parties for a fun night of family painting at the Farm. Discover, unlock, or revive your inner artist with step-by-step instruction on how to paint something beautiful for your family, friends, or wall at home.

Want to change to something with the painting? Different color, different objects, I will help you work through ideas and make changes to match your style, to make it YOUR painting! No experience is necessary, and beginners are welcome! Everyone can paint, I promise you will love the results. Come on out to Lavender Hill farm, let us paint!

All materials will be supplied: includes all painting supplies, canvas, and instruction to create your very own piece of art. Doors open at 6pm, we start painting at 6:15 sharp. Everyone paints at different speeds, class is usually over by 8:30 or earlier, (kids paint much faster).

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: My Name is Jen, I was born and raised in Charlevoix. I have never considered myself an artist. I have always loved art, but never thought I had the skill set to create beautiful work. My Brother was an awesome artist & could draw anything. I was always so envious of his talents. I was crafty and was super excited to live in a crafty world. In College, I had to take one art class, part of the General Education Program. I took Photography, because I thought anyone can take a picture and it is a good life skill. I loved being in the art department, I found myself doing my homework in the halls because I loved the smell of all the art supplies. My photography professor saw my interest in art and pushed me into more classes; I resisted. Turns out I did have a talent for art I just needed guidance. It was not something I could just do, I needed support and direction. With a little help, I was off and running and ended up taking so many art classes I left college with a double minor in art. Even with my degree I still never dove into painting, it was my last fear of art I needed to conquer.

About 3 years ago, I took a leap toward overcoming that last fear and I took a painting class. I picked up a brush and have not put it down since. I thoroughly enjoy watching people work through their hesitation or fear of picking up that brush and realizing they just painted something amazing.
