Classes are held Thursday and Friday from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Grouped at tables sporting individual easels, participants create their own masterworks from a specified source of inspiration with paints, brushes, and a canvas that the café supplies. Each guest can choose to bring a bottle of wine, and a provided tray of pastries or fruit and a cheese plate help quiet artists' appetites. At the conclusion of the evening, each painter totes home his or her handiwork, to be proudly displayed in the living room or on an art gallery's fridge.

Café Elie

Inspiration can be found in many places—at Café Elie, it frequently nestles at the bottom of a mug. Part coffeehouse, part art studio, and part home for wine lovers, the café welcomes budding artists and watercolor aficionados alike to classes aimed at students of all skill levels. While practicing upon canvases, patrons whet their whistles with the studio's caffeinated offerings or sip on wines they supply themselves.

The café's owner, accomplished artist Elie Bou Zeidan, leads students through the finer points of acrylic and oil painting, imparting knowledge he's gained through his studies and travels throughout the United States and France. Zeidan regularly displays his artwork alongside that of his students, easily viewed in monthly wine tastings, regular exhibitions, and by squinting really hard through the window.
