Party With Paintbrush, Create Masterpiece

BERKELEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Shaking your booty with a paint brush in your hand produces bright, beautiful masterpieces.

Artsy folks who like to boogie can combine their two pastimes with Paint Dancing, an event in Berkeley, California, this Friday (Jun. 26).

Co-creator Beth Hird says attendees will be given paints, brushes, and a soundtrack of funky reggae, hip-hop, blues, and jazz to jam to while stroking the canvas.

Though some choose to multi-task by getting their groove on while painting, others sometimes can’t stop the funk, drop their brushes, and get down with their bad selves mid-stroke.

Hird says the music and dancing allows artists to forget their inhibitions, and because it’s such a high-energy environment the art produced is always bright and happy.

She says, “People get excited by the process. The energy builds like a wave and ends in a crescendo. It’s really fascinating to watch.”
