Upcoming Events & Demos
Join us for a fun evening creating your own piece of art! All materials are included and no experience is necessary, you will be provided acrylic paints and a 16" x 12" piece of weathered wood. Instruction by Boise Art Museum Art Instructor and local artist, Lisa Benson.
This evening's painting will be "Paint Your Pet". Once you register participants need to email a close-up photo of their pet to: [email protected] . Lisa will draw it onto the wood canvas and have it ready for you to paint in class. Please note if you would like your pet drawn with or without a hat, then Lisa will show you how to paint it, step by step. Great gift idea!
Lisa Benson is a professional artist and graphic designer who specializes in still life, animals and landscape acrylic and watercolor paintings. Lisa has been exposed to the arts for as long as she can remember. Her paintings are color-inspired and upbeat. As much as Lisa loves creating and painting, she is also passionate about sharing her knowledge of painting with others as an art instructor at the Boise Art Museum and for her own business - LePaint paint parties. Lisa also taught middle school art for 12 years and worked at CBS Broadcasting as a graphic designer in Seattle before moving to Boise 3 years ago. Lisa believes strongly that “art is therapy” and there are no mistakes in art! Creating art is truly about the process. Lisa says, “LePaint gives me the opportunity to be creative every day. I have found my calling and I love what I do!”
