~Paint Parties for children and teens~
We offer acrylic paint parties for kids birthday parties, special events, sweet sixteen and more.
We make the planning simple and stress free as 1, 2, 3….
1. Schedule your party. To avoid space conflicts with our other events, art or yoga classes, we ask parties be booked at least 10 days in advance of the desired date.
2. Pick a theme for art in the gallery. We will help you choose a theme of interest for the art project that’s right for your child and their group of friends.
Theme 1: ‘A few of my favorite things and friends’ still life painting’ (for teens and pre-teens). Each teen brings in a favorite item which has personal significance (no object smaller than a piece of fruit in size) and together we set up a still life in the middle of the gallery on our raised and lit cart to create a still life painting which commemorates the group of children, the moment, the celebration and explores each child’s interpretation and perspective from a different spot in the gallery.
Theme 2: Animal friend’s paintings
Theme 3: Cupcakes & desserts
Theme 4: Seasonal (Spring Flowers, summer beach, Winter Scenes)
Theme 5: Painting En plein air on our back lawn (weather/season dependent)
Theme 6: Holiday or Seasonal theme (Masks, Halloween, gourd painting, Christmas ornaments, etc.)
Theme 7: Stuffed animal or cartoon character painting
When the party is over, each guest will have a fun acrylic painting on traditional canvas to take home as well as great memories of a unique experience.

Fine Art Classes : Our fine art courses and workshops are held in the fine art gallery section of V Organic Café or on the back lawn, in the garden. Courses are taught by talented local artists and art teachers who are both accomplished artists and master teachers in the field of art.
Intro to painting using the power of observation (6 week session begins Wednesday, January 8th, 6-8pm, $200, ages 15-adult)
Have you always wanted to learn how to paint but were afraid to try? This class will get you started. You will learn how to use your intense powers of observation to create two still life paintings during the course; one traditional still life set up and one personal still life you will create with your own newly acquired knowledge. Still Life in History discussion launches the class with discussion about quick sketches, creating a good composition, paint value studies, and color application using oil paint techniques. We will teach you how to see the world around you by observing shape against shape, authentic color your eye can see which your brain sometimes ignores, light against dark, and see the relationships of sizes to one another. The second painting will be a ‘personal still life’ which you will compose based upon all of the skills and information acquired in the course, using your own personal items to create a personal still life painting. (Instructor: Veronica Ramos, former Art Teacher K-12. BA Art History/MS Art Ed. Mass Art. Oil Painter) (This course will run w/a min of 7 participants/max of 12) Sign up via email, or at V Organic Café & Art Gallery registration desk.
