Unleash Your Inner Artist at Artbar Tokyo
Trying something creative is a great way to help you unwind. Artbar Tokyo in Daikanyama offers classes all week long that give artists of all experience levels the chance to create an original painting while sipping on delicious wine in a relaxed and welcoming environment. This isn't your typical art class.
Founded by Nicole Ciliberti in October 2015, Artbar Tokyo is staffed by talented instructors who lead students through a two-hour lesson in which they complete an acrylic painting to take home. They go through the painting step by step, completing it right along with you and sharing valuable information about simple techniques. All supplies are provided, from brushes to the canvas, as well as aprons to keep clothing protected. Best of all, your fee (5,000 yen per person) also includes unlimited red, white or sparkling wine and snacks. Coffee, tea, juice and water are also provided for those wishing to skip on the alcohol or those underage.
Not an artist? Don't worry -- the best part about Artbar Tokyo is the no-pressure environment. Students are encouraged to make the painting their own instead of worrying about matching the instructor's work exactly. Perfection isn't the goal . . . fun is! I love looking around the studio and seeing the unique elements each student adds to their painting.
This was my third time taking a class at Artbar Tokyo and it certainly won't be my last. Be sure to sign up for a class online or over the phone to flex your creative muscles!
The bright, airy studio welcomes private parties in addition to its regularly scheduled events.
