The Academy Center of the Arts has announced a new, covid-19 friendly event series, Tunes + Tones, this week!
Tunes + Tones is a workshop series where participants create easy-to-learn paintings inspired by moments in art history alongside our favorite musical selections from past eras and genres.
“Think of it as a paint and sip, paired with music from the genres you love most pumped through our state of the art sound system live,” said Brittany Griffith, Director of Programming.
Paint projects within the series are inspired by moments in art history and correspond with music genres and the eras they thrived in. Follow professional instructors through a step-by-step process to create your own masterpiece, or give yours a little personal flair as you’re inspired by the tunes and tones!
“This series offers opportunities for friends and family to create, jam, and celebrate arts and culture together in a safe and socially distanced environment,” said Griffith. Each event will have a limited amount of tickets available and offer groups socially-distanced seating options in our Warehouse Theatre venue featuring top line air filtration technology fitted with industrial strength HEPA air filters.
“We are extremely excited to extend a new opportunity to our community that blends different elements of the arts together,” said Director of Community Engagement, Tremayne Edwards. “An exciting part of Tune + Tones is working with new artists and instructors in our community, and we are thankful for those that help make these experiences happen,” said Edwards.
Join us for the first Tunes + Tones event on Friday, February 19th at 7:00 PM where Instructor Sharon Moore of Glamour Paint Party will take participants on a step-by-step, easy-to-learn painting experience while we pump hip-hop tunes through our state of the art sound system for participants to vibe to.
Note all participants must be 21 or older to participate. One glass of wine is included in each ticket purchase. A cash bar with beer/wine will be available on-site.
