What do I do when my entire business is based on coming together sociably to create art, and my supportive community has been urged to avoid gathering to prevent spread of a virus? Introducing "Not-So Sociable Art", my strategy to continue to provide a creative service to my community while being responsible and responsive in a national crisis.
Not-So Sociable Art Paint at Home Pre-Sketched and Printed Canvases
It's possible that we might be spending more time than usual at home. You might need a creative outlet or a Sociable Art fix. You might need to occupy your children. If you can't come to class, I can bring the class to you. Pre-sketched canvases will be available to you to order with discounts for multiple orders. Paint and brushes available at additional cost. If you don't see the canvas you want, special order it by contacting me. Once you order your canvas(es), I can deliver them to your doorstep (within the my Cary delivery area) with no contact necessary. Click on the "Not-So Sociable Art" tab above for ordering information. You can see an example of an instruction video on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSyxNlYd_6g
Currently Scheduled Events
All currently scheduled public events have been postponed.Updates will also appear on the Sociable Art page on Facebook. Several step-by-step painting instruction videos have been posted on YouTube. Please consider subscribing as I'll be adding new videos each week. If you live in Cary, you can order a pre-sketched canvas to go along with the video. Go to the "Not-So Sociable Art tab for more information.
Let Me Create Art for You
If I can't paint with you at my public events, I can still create art on my own to share with you. Let me "Chalk your Walk" - adding a temporary washable chalk artwork for birthday celebrations or uplifting messages. you can find out more on the "Chalk the Walk" tab above. I have been creating residential and business murals; portraits of pets, people, and loved ones; and custom art canvases with Designs by Arianne since 2005. Please consider commissioning a work of art. You can see a full portfolio of my work at www.designsbyarianne.com. I will also make some of my paintings available for sale at discounted prices on this website on the "Painting Sale" page under the "More" tab above right. Available paintings will also be posted in coming days on Instagram at #sociableartnc and on Facebook at Sociable Art.
In closing, thank you for continuing to support small, local businesses like mine through these challenging times. Take care of yourself and your family. I look forward to painting with you soon.

"We had the best time!!! I think it was great as did all of the directors. You really took the time to understand our mission and to put it into our team mural. I can’t wait until we hang it."
