Have you ever wished to be one of those people from the movies, that only had shirts on themselves, some drink in one hand, and a paintbrush in another, looking through the window in their own atelier, while painting their masterpieces? So, what’s the problem? You don’t have the atelier or don’t know to paint? Put your pants on and attend any of 6 BYOB painting classes in NYC! Seriously, pants required.
I know that I could never inherit Michelangelo or Picasso. I am not that talented, nor focused enough to lock myself in a room and don’t go out until all that I want is printed on the canvas. I would most probably lose the track after only a few hours and leave it like that. The problem would appear when I see it again because I would want to get it done, but I would have no idea how to do it or all of that elan would most likely just vanish and I would destroy it. But, the truth is that any kind of art really keeps me down. No matter how frustrated I am, as soon as I grab my pen, brush, and even a scalpel, I start feeling more peacefully.
But we can’t always have it all. Or could we? As everything else, BYOB painting classes can be found in NYC. I really don’t get it. Either New Yorkers are too creative or other creative people find only New York City to start their classes. I live far away from New York. Why won’t anyone who plans on teaching classes come to my place instead? I don’t think that this would happen anytime soon, so, white shirt, here I come!
Unlike me, New York City residents can enjoy BYOB painting classes any time they want. The prices are not that high ($35-$50), the reviews are great, classes are always full because there is no person in NYC that don’t want to see the insight and show off a bit and most of them are located in Upper West Side. So, if you planned on visiting this part of the city, here is your chance. Take a look at 6 BYOB painting classes in NYC that Insider Monkey found for you, but just keep in mind that not all of the wasted artists are the greatest artists.
