Painting? Wine? Sign me up.
I had the opportunity to take a class for work a few weeks ago, and it was such a fun experience.
From their website –
“Looking for a fun evening out? Painting with a Twist is the answer! The "twist" is you can bring your favorite bottle of wine or beverage** to enjoy during the class. Come alone or invite your friends. Paint, canvas, and brushes are provided, as is an experienced and enthusiastic local artist who can lead you step by step through the process of recreating the featured artwork. At the end of the evening, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind creation and a newfound talent you’ll want to explore. This is not your average art class, this is art entertainment.
Book a private party! Choose from over 1500 paintings, from landscapes, abstracts, and cityscapes to creative renderings of seafood, animals, iconic buildings, and florals. Birthday parties, bachelorette parties, office parties, sorority functions, date nights, theme parties, and team building are just a few of the fun events that are celebrated at Painting with a Twist.”
Unfortunately, due to local liquor laws, the Fayetteville location doesn’t offer BYOB. But, they do have a cash bar that serves beer and wine as well as a variety of non-alcoholic drinks.
The painting for the class that I took was a whimsical little snowman.
The classes are either two or three hours depending on the difficulty level. Two hour classes are $35 and three hour classes are $45 – which gets you everything you need to walk away with your own work of art (canvas, paints, etc.), including a talented local artist to show you how, step by step.
I know what you’re thinking, but you DO NOT have to have any experience painting to take one of these classes. Most of our group had never painted anything before and everyone’s snowman turned out beautifully. Seriously.
The finished masterpieces
And here’s another little video I made of the experience:
If you have a Painting With a Twist near you, I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
In fact, I enjoyed the class so much that I’ve already signed up for another one!
