At Splash MOB Painting Parties in Rochester, NY, we do not use templates sent by national companies to the franchisees (as in paint and wine parties, paint and sip parties or many other painting parties businesses). The paintings we recreate are originally created and taught by a professional illustrator and fine artist, Gloria Kreitzberg, or original photographs that we recreate taken by local photographers. Some styles of art that are taught at our painting parties are painterly in nature, sometimes abstract, and some are light-hearted and very expressive. You will take home a 16" x 20" acrylic on canvas painting that is as authentic as you are. We encourage self-expression and to paint your own unique interpretation of the subject matter. You will not see a sea of paintings that all look alike at the end of a painting class.
If you are looking for a painting class, paint and wine party, or paint and sip party in the Rochester, NY area, you'll find that ours is the most unique. Not only will you receive quality painting instruction, but some Splash MOB Painting Parties get you moving. We get off of our chairs and dance a little and encourage you to paint like no one is watching. Do you have to dance? No, not at all—but you just may not be able to help yourself. Our Splash MOB instructor is a former dance teacher and knows how to get you to off your seat.
Gloria Kreitzberg, Owner and Instructor of Splash MOB Painting Parties was just going along on her merry way with her marketing and graphic design company in Rochester, NY, Artistic Vision Marketing & Graphic Design. She had been teaching kids' painting classes at Artful Kids Expressive Art Classes, and Inner Vision Meditative and Expressive Art Classes for adults in the Rochester, New York area. She would also paint for her own pleasure and create commissioned artwork of people's pets in her spare time. Although she has always been a fine artist, she also loves the challenge of strategizing over how to create a successful marketing campaign for her clients. Gloria is not necessarily your quiet, inward artistic type. As a former dance instructor, she would come home from work and dance to Motown while washing the dishes. She has always had one foot in the creative door, and one on the dance floor. Go figure. (Be patient—this is all leading up to something...)
One day, an Artistic Vision Marketing & Graphic Design client asked her to do an adult painting class at their candy store—kind of like the wine and painting party franchises that are so popular. She started talking to herself again (yes, she probably needs professional help), and said, "There's no way I am doing the same mass produced, template painting art that can be found on hundreds of websites where the instructor of the class doesn't even have to be an artist to teach." She also thought that if she was going to do a painting party, she wanted to make it a REAL party with music and a little dancing. Coming from years of being a dance instructor, she thought that it would be the perfect combination of all of her passions. Then she said to herself, "Why just do this one event? I'm a branding expert so let's create a brand and a website and do this for others. Voile. Splash MOB Painting Parties was born. She knew that she would be competing with national paint and wine parties, paint night parties, and other girls' night out paint and sip franchised businesses. Did that stop her? Not at all. Hers would be uniquely different, with high-quality painting instruction, and a party that people will not forget. If you are looking for a painting class or painting party in the Rochester, NY, area, Splash MOB Painting Parties is an event you will have to try. Gloria Kreitzberg's painting parties can be found in venues such as restaurants, retail stores, bars and special event venues, golf clubs, private homes, and in business locations for corporate team building 'fun' day events.
We are UNIQUE
Broccolo Painting Events
(Is that unique as in a little weird or unique as in the newest movement in social painting classes?) We are the original (and only) painting party in Rochester, NY, that combines custom paintings on canvas (no franchised templates) with instruction by a professional artist, with the addition of movement (a.k.a. dancing) and music. It's a party and a painting class all rolled into one.
