Paint Nights:

Paint Night with Vista is a social group art experience open to artists of all skill levels. No prior painting experience is required! Vista Arts Specialist Samantha Listorti provides step-by-step instruction on how to recreate a pre-determined painting that’s yours to take home at the end of the night. Works by Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali and Claude Monet have been painted in past classes.

Through ongoing partnerships with local businesses, Paint Nights are offered monthly at varying locations along the shoreline.
