Being a local you support local art.. but when you can paint your own it’s super exciting. Jessica Ann makes that happen. She is a local artist that turns us locals into artists. She teaches paint classes up and down the keys.. from Key Largo all the way down to the lower keys. She does all type of paint classes with a marine based theme some of them are even on wood. She is a Florida marine artist who is truly talented.

I have been to four of her classes over the passed two months.. I truly enjoy her classes and the step by step instruction she gives… because someone like me needs it. You can take as long as you need on any of the steps.. she walks around and helps you thru any type of issues you may have or to show you a technique one on one. img_7936




I can’t even draw or paint a stick figure and this lady some how has me painting mermaids and octopuses .. that look like mermaids and octopuses. There are many different venues you can pick form they are all on her website with the classes and how to register for a class.

You can find all the venus she will be having classes at and also you can get some of her artwork right on the website.  My personal favorite is Florida Keys brewing company. Jessica gives you a drink break at the half way point & I love having a drink break at Florida Keys brewing co.  You can read why on my last blog post.




Theses paint nights are great for birthdays, meet ups , girls nights or just something to help you get your creative juices going. It is so great to see how different everyones turns out when we all get the same instructions and supplies. At the end of every paint night she takes a photo and posts it on her facebook. I always enjoy painting the night away with Jessica. It is definitely something you should do to go outside of your comfort zone or just have fun with some friends.
