Social Painting

The Black Couch

The Black Couch is a working studio and art gallery in Hermosa. We are a collective of artists and musicians whose mission is to encourage positive community involvement through art and music.

We aim to establish ourselves as a place for collaboration, artistic growth and as a space where people of all ages and skill levels can get in touch with their inner creative potential.

Social Painting and Private Events

Come paint with us in our raw urban working studio and art gallery. Our warehouse space is surrounded by resident artist Mark Narens' art and just by walking into the space you feel a creative energy like no place else. The Black Couch provides the artist board, all supplies, instructors and music of your choice playing throughout the class.  You can choose anything you want to paint. Feel free to BYOB  and food. Couples, Girls night out, Bachelorette parties, all small and large celebrations welcome.

Ask us about renting our space for private events from birthday parties, rehearsal dinners to team building and corporate parties.

We go onsite to high rise buildings in the city and suburbs and offer Charcoal Drawing and Painting events for tenants.

Private Art Lessons are also available from ages 4 years to adults.
