Many of our paintings are from the 19th century art movement called impressionism.  In addition we have dozens of original works that will appeal to all tastes.  Art of Merlot makes it easy for beginning painters to complete a masterpiece similar to what you see on our site.  We start by providing you with a template to sketch out your painting.  This gives you structure and balance makings the creative process easier.  It’s also how you can complete paintings with a higher degree of sophistication.  You will use a 16” x 20” canvas with acrylic paint to create your masterpiece.  Our instructors are all working professional artists that are enthusiastic, kind, patient, and committed to making it an enjoyable experience for you.  Our new studio is spacious and inviting where you’ll be comfortable and proud to bring your guests.
