We're very excited to host three panting workshops and art show at the legendary, iconic, and one-of-a-kind Bob Baker Marionette Theater, a designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural monument.
We will be running a 3-session workshop in the Party Room of the Theater. Sessions will be instructional. Julio Panisello will lead the group through the painting process based on a specific premise.
A curated selection of the artwork produced during the painting sessions will be featured in the theater.
- Sessions will be May 3rd, May 10th, and May 17th, three consecutive Thursdays, from 7-9pm
- Session capacity limited to 10 pay-per-paint easel stations.
- All art materials supplied.
- We will work in oil on cotton paper, 12x16.
- All levels welcome - from pro to first time.
- You can take one class or all three workshops. Workshops are not cumulative.
- You can work on a single painting in one workshop, in 3 workshops, or create a painting during each workshop you may be attending.
- Participation in the workshop does not guarantee placement in the show.
Where do I park?
- There is street parking along Glendale Blvd and N Toluca St., and Douglas St.
- There is a large parking lot next to the Theater, on Glendale Blvd (not owned or operated by the Theater).
- The parking lot is operated very 'rooflessly': you need to bring $5 inside an envelope and write your car's model and license plate on the envelope before you drop it inside the lot's mailbox.
We will be hosting the art classes in the Party Room. Entrance to the room is through the Studio Workshop door.
What do I bring?
What are Roofless classes like?
