Tipsy is a state of mind as much as a state of inebriation. Getting together in fellowship to share an experience over a drink allows any participant freedom of expression. Even a club soda with a twist or coffee, still the camaraderie plays out because one is among understanding new acquaintances supporting an endeavor and encouraging creative new efforts. And that is the glorious result that every patron of The Tipsy Artist claims as they bring home a canvas that represents a new truth for an old art – the art of courage in the glory of personal revelation.
But it is just a gathering of people painting along with Tiffany Bora, an intrepid leader in discovery as she sets up a simple subject for non-artists to experience painting. People lose some inhibitions through the wine they have brought to the ‘bring your own bottle’ event, but they lose all inhibitions through the sharing that comes with the experience. Additionally, since fun is the main objective of this exercise, fun is the evening that patrons always experience.
Tiffany Bora is married to Joe Bohrer, known as Utopia Joe among his followers and fans. She uses the name Bora because it is so much easier to spell, when one is a little bit tipsy. A class with The Tipsy Artist consists of meeting in a space set up either at Gallery Grazioso in Guthrie or, on occasion, elsewhere such as a metropolitan restaurant. Classes are around $25.00 per person including all the supplies needed to produce a work of art (outside of those supplies the artist imbibes).
The classes are a great deal of fun and many discover talent they didn’t know they had. In addition to a piece of art, guests come home with peace of mind from the experience. In an utterly relaxed atmosphere, the comfort level could only be enhanced by stripping down and wearing only the most comfortable of clothes if any. Aha! Naked painting? The Tipsy Artist is developing a plan for that as well with an online class shortly to be announced. Just make sure your camera isn’t on both ways, and follow the class experience on line—that should be lots of fun! Look for those classes to be announced shortly on her website which is www.TipsyArtist.com. For further information Tiffany can be contacted through email at Tiffany@TheTipsyArtist.com . There is nothing more fun in making new friends than joining such a party from the Tipsy Artist Wine and Paint Parties.
Members of a recent class had a great time and many of them are repeat ‘attenders’ as well as first timers. Newbies resolve to return again to share with other friends. People usually come in twos, couples have a great ‘date night’ and friends have a relaxing escape but larger private parties are easily arranged as well.
