About the class

Kick off your summer with Brushes & Beats in the Secret Garden. Bring your friends and enjoy an evening sipping wine and painting with the guidance of Jose Martinez. This is not your traditional sip ‘n’ paint as guests will be groovin’ along to the beats of DJ StaR J!

This class is part of our Summers at the Center series of classes and events being held in June, July, and August. You can view all of our offerings here.

About the Instructor

Jose Martinez

Instructor / Artist

Jose Martinez is a resident artist with the Mare Island Art Studios (formerly known as the Coal Shed Studios).  He is a trusted advocate for youth and works at the Napa Valley College and at Sonoma Ballooning. He has a BA in Studio Painting and Art History from San Francisco State University.
Jose Martinez uses oil on canvases and panels to portray average, everyday people—often those who in one way or another have had an impact on his life.
Jose’s desire is to capture the beauty and intricate nature of the human experience, be that through painting, drawing, or photography. Through his use of light, shadow, and hue, he reveals a story, highlights an emotion, or simply captures a moment suspended in time.
Jose is also dedicated to helping individuals express themselves by facilitating art classes. He believes that art is a positive outlet for expression and healing. Creativity sparks character growth, instills confidence, and engages the mind on a journey of self-discovery. Jose embraces art’s power to heal. Not only does he think that art offers an avenue for communication and self-reflection, it also allows us to reinvent ourselves.
