Date Night Lotus-Leaf Painting for Couples
Looking for a new date night idea? Our beautiful lotus-leaf painting workshop is the perfect way for you to relax together and enjoy a meditative and artistic experience. You're probably thinking, what is lotus-leaf painting? Well, in out intimate painting classes, out instructor shows students how to paint on a canvas of preserved lotus leaves, meticulously created by hand in Thailand. Himapan was founded in Bangkok, and the artistic approach is firmly rooted in Thai culture. While we run successful workshops across the world, this is the first time these classes are offered in the US. For your class, you'll be welcomed to our cozy Williamburg art studio with tea and invited to choose whatever colors you like to create your work. The painting session gives you and your significant other the chance to explore your creativity as a couple by making a stunning, colorful artwork which looks great hung on your wall. With no more than 12 people per lesson, our small class sizes creates a warm and intimate environment to spend quality time with your other half. All materials (canvas, brushes, acrylic paint in an array of stunning colors, sponges, protective apron) are provided during the workshops- simply bring yourself and your creativity. Every student gets a 40cm x 40cm canvas to paint on. (If you want a larger size or multiple canvas, you can upgrade in the class.) And don't worry- no art experience is necessary, we'll be sure to guide you through the two hour session. At the end of the class, both of you can take your finished paintings home. Too often, time set aside to enjoy the company of loved ones gets overshadowed by the stress of life and work. Take a step away from this cycle and relish together a peaceful environment focused on creativity and relaxation. We''ll provide tea, but feel free to bring a bottle of wine, sake, or beer if you'd like to make the celebration special. We're excited to share this calming mellow artistic experience. For all Verlocal members, we're offering a special discount for couples. Save 30% on the regular couple price of $270. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions about the class. We look forward to meeting you!
Hello, I'm Tristan, the founder of Himapan in the US. While my career has taken me from Paris to New York, my birthplace, Thailand, inspired my most recent passion. While on a trip to Bangkok last year, I fell in love with traditional lotus painting, and connected with native artists to understand and master their techniques. Today, we share that knowledge with students our Williamsburg studio, Himapan NYC. My teaching partner Samuel is experienced with art and color theory, and is a trained yoga instructor, mindfullness educator, and a Western Herbalist, with a passion for the cultural history of southeast Asia. It has been a joy to work with him hands-on to share the techniques, history, and approach to this beautiful and meditative art. We're excited to share this joy of lotus-leaf painting with you.
