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.

A Shared Stage Productions

A Shared Stage Productions was founded on the power of common experiences. These productions provide enriching opportunities for people of all abilities and backgrounds to celebrate the performing arts in the community.

The notion of a shared stage comes from focusing on the content and experience of the performing arts, rather than the the ability of the individual. Productions include shows by world-renowned performers, professional musicals composed of a cast and crew of all abilities, and showcasing the talents of artists through community-based performances.

A Shared Stage - The Power of a Common Experience

Picture a world where people see people. Not anything else. Not religion. Not race. Not disability. How do you create human connections? You may think you have heard this story before. But you haven’t.

When you see a person as a person, all biases, conscious or otherwise, fall away and the possibilities are endless. ‘A Shared Stage’ documents the experiences of people over a four-month period of time that culminates with the musical production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ and tells the story of what is possible when people truly get to know people through a common experience.
