SD Artist Marcus Thorne Leads Painting Event At Ballast Point
San Diego artist Marcus Thorne will lead a public painting event on March 10, 2019, as part of Ballast Point Brewing's "Brushes, Beaches & Brews" event that will take place during the 11th annual San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering. This event is part of the festival's collaboration with Fleet Science Center.
The painting event is from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Ballast Point Brewing Miramar, 9045 Carroll Way, San Diego, and will feature a presentation by a certified Brewmaster. An optional tour of the brewery rounds out the afternoon. The family-friendly event is geared for ages 16+ and those under 18 must register with an accompanying registered adult.
Including art events such as these is an important part of this year's festival as it evolves from STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to STEAM (all of the above, plus arts).
"Brushes, Beaches & Brews" participants will learn from a Ballast Point Brewmaster all about the science of brewing beer while painting a beautiful La Jolla Shores beach scene. Admission includes a 16" x 20" canvas to keep, the use of supplies (easels, paints, brushes, aprons), step-by-step instructions from Marcus Thorne, and Ballast Point gift items. Parking is free.
Food and drinks are not included in the event fee, but participants can order from Ballast Point's menu throughout the event, including beer, wine, pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, share plates, and more.
Advanced online reservations are required. For more information or to reserve a spot, call 619-207-9431 or go to http://www.wineandcanvas.com/san-diego-ca.html.
A program of Biocom Institute and presented by Illumina Foundation, the annual San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering is a nine-day (March 2-10) educational experience, including interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, and dynamic speakers to engage kids and families in all that encompasses STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
Marcus Thorne's passion for painting began at age five and developed into a career in his teen years, when he often won art competitions, painted commissioned works, and sold his paintings in galleries. He then went into the field of architecture and now specializes in healthcare design. Since 2014 Marcus has been teaching painting classes at public and private events through his company Wine and Canvas San Diego. He enjoys inspiring and empowering people to unleash their creative abilities. Marcus' contemporary oil paintings are available for commissioned work, art collectors, and interior design needs for corporate and residential settings.
