Om Monday 3-October the 101 Pub in Bogota hosted an evening of painting and dinner. This is a class lead by Mary Ellen Murphy on Mondays. Ms. Murphy is a Bogota resident who teaches Art at Ridgfield Park High School. This is a way to relax enjoying some dinner with friends while learning the techniques of painting. This is open to individuals , and groups. At this evening session there were a couple of groups taking the opportunity to spend time together, along with some people who just wanted to try their hand at creating something personal. There was also repeat painters, for the second or third class, trying to improve and learn some more.
Price for a session is $50 person with included all materials needed, a Buffet Dinner and 2 drinks. Doors open at 6:30p and the class runs until at least 9:00p. Ms Murphy demonstrates the process of turning a blank canvas into a work of Art. She uses one of her original works and recreates it step by step to show it done. She offers advice, tips, and some suggestions on to make a painting of ones own. She stresses that each person is working in their own style, and has the liberty to things different then what everyone is doing. Ms Murphy's saying is " There are no mistakes, just an unplanned path to the finish."
Painting "101" will be every Monday for the next few Months and will be held at the 101 Pub located at 101 Queen Anne Rd Bogota, NJ. For more information, or to make a reservation please contact Mary Ellen Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org
