Need a reason to put on your costume before Halloween? Well then grab your best ghoul or goblin and join us for an evening of spooky painting fun in the parlor. We are encouraging you to dress in your costume (PLEASE NO CLOWNS ALLOWED) and learn the basics of painting from the talented local artist, Joe Hoskins.

We will provide the expertise, canvas, brushes, and paint. You bring your creativity, poison (beverage of choice), a pal and your willingness to have a blast.


About the Artist


Joe Hoskins has made art for a long time, in a number of different mediums, for a number of different reasons.
He’s one of those artists that knows far too much to show his hand, to reveal too much. His art owes much to his education in philosophy, theology, English literature. For Joe, the story comes first...the images follow and have a tendency to haunt when he really wants them to. He loves to do that. Some of his accomplishments include being featured in the wonderful art annual, Spectrum #15 (Edmund & Ghost) and the same painting now resides in the Orlando Museum of Modern Art, he was named one of Kansas City’s 100 most influential artists in 2001 (he got his portrait painted and everything)! So, allow him to pull you into the story. Allow him to haunt you. You may just like it.
