Have you ever felt like taking a painting class to unleash your inner master artist, but felt as though you couldn’t even draw a stick figure? Are you looking for something different and new to do for a birthday party, ladies night out, team building, first date, couples? Or, even as a single person who is looking for some unique social interaction but hate hanging out at the bars? Well that’s where Creative U can help you out. Creative U is a new “paint and sip” art studio in historic downtown Brighton. Our studio is so open and inviting, with a rustic industrial look. Just the space alone gets those creative juices flowing. From the 1800’s patented ceiling fans to the unique stools you sit on, the attention has been in the details. This studio invokes an exciting social atmosphere.
Guests get their creativity on, as a professional art instructor teaches them a 2 to 3 hour relaxing class while they enjoy a glass of wine, beer or non-alcoholic beverage. You can also order appetizers from a fabulous local restaurant before they begin, and have them delivered during the class! All supplies are included with the class, such as brushes, paints, canvases, easels and aprons, and every class is taught step by step so there is NO EXPERIENCE necessary! The guest can follow along with the instruction, or they can change colors or add elements to their paintings as they go. They can even break totally free and create an original of their own! There are no rules on how you create your masterpiece. That’s why I named my place Creative U!
Guests simply go to our website and click onto the “Calendar” tab to view our calendar of classes, register online for the class of their choice, and show up to the class 20-25 minutes early. We take breaks throughout the class so that there is time to socialize and walk around and admire what everyone else is creating. This is the best time to get inspiration and stretch those legs as you get yourself another beverage. The classes range from 2-4 hours long with a price range of $25-$50 a class, depending on the project at hand.
Speaking of projects! We have more then just painting classes! We have a kiln and we will teach you how to hand build something out of raw clay! Then you will come back after it has been fired and glaze it. Along with painting and ceramics, we will have some jewelry making and recycled art classes as well. Being a licensed art instructor has itâ€™s perks!
We also set ourselves apart by having Family Friendly classes. Here at Creative U, we are all about the experiences created while you are with us. Just check our calendar page for events labeled “Family Friendly”. What a great opportunity to share something fun and creative With your children. These will be memories they will cherish forever.
