“A Love of Music” painting and wine class to benefit West Houston’s pioneering orchestra at the Art Cellar of Houston
Someday, everything is gonna be smooth like a rhapsody
When I paint my masterpiece
- Bob Dylan, 1971
Take acrylic paint and a stretched canvas, some French music sheets from 1911 and perhaps a little wine and you have the makings of a fundraising masterpiece for the Energy Corridor of Houston Orchestra (ECHO).
“A Love of Music” wine and painting class at the Art Cellar of Houston, 7-10 p.m. Saturday, February 13, will benefit ECHO – the pioneering orchestra that for two seasons has brought live classical music to West Houston.
This wine and painting class in Houston features step-by-step instruction to create an acrylic painting on a 16x20 stretched canvas, including 1911 French music sheets. Instruction, appetizers, painting supplies and music will be provided, while participants can bring their own adult beverages and snacks.
As a bonus, renowned Houston-based artist Ayad Fadel will join the event to paint a free portrait of a lucky attendee, whose name will be drawn at the start of the class. You can experience some of Fadel’s unique approach to portraiture here.
Tickets for this ECHO fundraiser are $50, with half the proceeds benefiting the orchestra, and include appetizers, drinks and three hours of painting fun. The Art Cellar is located at 1460 Eldridge Parkway, #120.
The Art Cellar of Houston offers wine and painting classes, along with private painting parties and team building. ECHO serves music lovers in the Energy Corridor and surrounding areas. The orchestra is dedicated to the enhanced appreciation and understanding of orchestral music and seeks to share musical experiences through concerts, educational programs and private events.
