Finding time to socialize with friends or enjoy a new passion can be rare these days with the return of school and hectic work schedules; however, the Middletown Arts Center (MAC) is making it easy to combine both into one special evening.
Socialize, relax and recharge in Tresse DeLorenzo's Art Innovators Acrylic Painting Parties on select Fridays from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the Middletown Arts Center located at 36 Church Street in Middletown, NJ. All levels of experience are welcome. Pizza and all art supplies provided. Cost is $32 per person or $60 per couple.

Can't find a sitter for the kids? The MAC's Art Parties are held in conjunction with Club MAC, where kids enjoy a night out, too! Drop the kids off with Miss Maria Gato for arts and crafts, movies, games, snacks and more, then you can join your friends for your paint party just down the hall. Cost is $25 per child, $15 sibling rate.
Here are the dates and themes for upcoming classes with DeLorenzo:

DeLorenzo often shares the following Pablo Picasso quote when she first meets her students: "The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." DeLorenzo then asks, "Have you dusted yet?" She hopes to welcome you to her evening classes/parties for fun and relaxing nights out with friends, while you explore a new or reawakened passion for painting.
