Join the Coutts Museum of Art’s Art Instructor, Charlene Jesser, and artist Sonja Milbourn, as they guide adults and children alike through activities and a collaborative art project. This very special Family Art Project is for one day only!

The Dream Rocket Project (DRP), inspired by artist and founder of International Fiber Collaborative, Jennifer Marsh, and supported by NASA’s “Mission to Mars and Beyond” initiative, will bring families and individuals from around the world together. The artwork collaboration will wrap the skeleton of a 385 foot space launch system (SLS) rocket replica.

The DRP estimates that by the time they have received the target goal of 9,000 submissions, over 36,000 individuals will have contributed to a monumental 32,000+ square foot wrap. From their website, DRP states, “The social and economic benefits to youth and their communities reveals a vibrant and visible program, marked by collaboration from individuals in all economic sectors. By exposing kids to the importance of collaboration through multi-disciplinary approaches we hope to inspire them to feel the freedom to DREAM big, THINK big and make a difference. By wrapping the SLS rocket replica with our dreams, the SLS exhibit can serve as an inspiring visual symbol of collaboration and perseverance.”

Once collaborative works have been created by both our Coutts Club (After-school program) and from our special Family Art Project, submissions will be on display at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site in South Carolina from January 13 – April 23, 2018, then on to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Alabama, where the replica and the original rocket are both located. The rocket standing outside the Center in the above photo is the replica that will be wrapped.

The Coutts Museum of Art, and artist Alan Brooks, present a night for adults only!

Bring your favorite drink (alcoholic, or non-alcoholic – your choice!), and we will supply all of the tools you need to get your paint party started! Here, you can unwind after a hard day’s work, explore an alternative date night, catch up with friends, or be at one with yourself. You will leave with an impressive painting created by YOU, and an experience you won’t forget.

Our painting class is led by Brooks, who has a passion for his craft. He will teach you step-by-step how to recreate the painting of the evening. Our vibe is eclectic and lively – and the experience is one you won’t forget. Bring an open mind and your beverage of choice. No experience necessary – YOU CAN DO THIS.

Note: Classes begin promptly at the scheduled time. Please arrive 15 minutes early to grab a seat and set up and allow ample time for parking. Please park on the East side of the Museum and enter the Coutts Create Space (Red door on south side of the 112 N Main building). The Museum will be locked.

This isn't like art class, and guests aren't expected to be artistically savvy -- it's "fun art" you can bond over making, then take home; and the class is affordable! Reservations for the class are $35.00 per person and only available through EventBrite!

Seating is limited and attendees must be over 21 years of age. Alcohol is not included and guests are encouraged to bring their own. Light hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

All proceeds from this class will go to purchase items for the classroom, supporting the mission of the Museum, the vision of its founder, and the community of El Dorado. (If you wish to schedule a paint party for a large group, please contact Raven Dickson at the Museum!)
