Canvas, Cocktails & Creativity with Artist Aimee Rebmann

Canvas, Cocktails & Creativity with Artist Aimee Rebmann

Fair Oaks -- When artist Aimee Rebmann's teaching career hit a bump, she invented a wonderful business called "Creative Juices Events" traveling around town teaching people how to paint... stuff. Aimee's budding artists meet at public places, restaurants and private home parties where we are instructed step-by-step how to paint on canvas blending acrylics (they dry quickly and wash out of clothing). During her professional teaching career, Aimee taught art to young students and explains basic painting from sketching the outline on our canvas, which brush to use, how to blend colors and layer paint. And she does this cheerfully because Aimee loves showing us how to create art. Many years ago, comedian Tom Dreesen told me he's a happy man because he made his avocation his vocation and life is good. Aimee Rebmann achieves the same result by teaching art to us all around town.
