Arte Bella on 4th Ave

Are you looking for a laid-back creative experience? If so, look no further than Arte Bella on 4th Avenue. This multifunctional space is a great fit for anyone who wants to take an art class, but the idea of a formal setting is off-putting. Currently, Arte Bella on 4th is the only 420 friendly bar/restaurant/art class in Tucson.

But we’re here to talk about the artistic experience. Painting is what they specialize in, and all classes come with a 16×20” canvas, acrylic paint (quick dry time and no dangerous or stinky solvents,) and step-by-step instruction on how to create your personal masterpiece!

The Classes

Paint & Puff: This class is painting 101, just the basics. There’s usually a theme for these classes, such as painting Dwight from The Office, or a moonlit desert scene. An art instructor will guide you through the process, the color pallet pre-selected.

Blacklight Painting: Just like it sounds. Blacklights are set up so you can see what you’re doing as you push around the light reactive paint. You can follow along with the art teacher or paint your own thing.

Drop-In’s Welcome: Pretty much any time Arte Bella on 4th is open you can pop in for a quick painting sesh. If you do drop in you can select from a 12×12” for $19, or a 16×24” for $24. Instructors do not lead drop-in sessions, but assistance is always available when you need it.
