What you'll do
Hi. I am Colleen Gianatiempo, a fine artist wishing to INspire as many people as possible! I have a calling to have YOU connect with your creativity. Why is “Mix It Up” not your average paint party? Because, every participant makes an individual piece of art, unique to their own expression and creativity using MIXED MEDIA—meaning we just don't use paint! This is not a paint-by-number paint party where all the art looks the same or at least tries too! My party is a step by step gateway into what is possible in art. I guarantee that each student will walk away feeling fulfilled, relaxed, and LOVE the art that they created. I provide all the materials—canvas, paint, collage paper, spray paint, stencils, stamps, markets, pastels and more! YOU provide a sense of playfulness and creativity and voila! Masterpieces surmount. Calling all curiousity seekers—host a party today!
I graduated Cum Laude with a BS in Business and a minor in Fashion Marketing. After moving to Los Angeles for work, I furthered my education by achieving a Certificate of Graphic Design from Otis Parsons School of Design. This led to me owning my own design firm for 25 years within the disciplines of fine art, graphic art, interior design, photography and art instruction. My passion for fine art led me to the Academy of Art in San Francisco where I received a Master of Fine Art in Painting. Art has been a part of my life since I was a child and I had numerous mentors to thank for sparking and sustaining my passion. My mission now is to share my lifelong enthusiasm for art with as many students as possible. I have developed an impactful curriculum that focuses on nurturing each student's skill set while nurturing creativity.
I love to provide delicious and healthy snacks along with some great desserts. The snacks are usually cheese and crackers,…
I provide any drink you would like! Water, coffee, juice, soft drinks, and even locally sourced wine!
Where you'll be
The experience is hosted in my studio at my home in the Alhambra Valley of Martinez. I can accommodate any size party! Most hostesses are comfortable with 10-15 people.
