Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of classes at Pinot's Palette's Galleria location on Richmond Avenue.
Pinot's Palette whets artistic appetites with its creativity-stirring combination of paint and libations, transforming the plain painting process into a fun session of swigs and sketches. During each class, a local artist guides fledgling brush wielders through their artistic attempts at mastering a pre-determined art piece, such as a tulip still life or a Rococo rendering of a transportation-subcommittee hearing. Pinot's Palette provides all of the painting supplies needed, so students only need to bring their favorite beverage and whatever outfit awakens their inner Magritte, Cezanne, or painting elephant. Most classes take about two hours to complete. For those who do not use the entire balance of today's Groupon, the remaining balance can be applied to a future class, or the entire balance can be used for a more expensive class.
Pinot’s Palette has garnered ample press coverage, including a featured spot on Great Day Houston's Date Night. While there aren’t many online user reviews yet for the newer Richmond Avenue location, Yelpers give the Taft Street location an average of 4.5 stars.

Pinot's Palette combines wine and art to create an enjoyable night out with friends or a date. The painting sessions encourage adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging light-hearted conversation, fun, and good cheer while painting and sipping BYOB beverages. Each session's painting of the night may feature anything from landscapes and wine-inspired art to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night, and each painter tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor. At the end of the night, painters can take their painting home with them and ring a "Gong of Awesomeness" on their way out to signify a good time.
