Professional artist Vanessa Sheldon doesn't limit her creativity to the studio. During her two-hour Paint Class Wine Glass art parties, she invites aspiring painters to unlock their inner Monets at bars, restaurants, and event spaces across the city. Once they're set up with their provided materials, attendees learn to masterfully create portraits that can later be used to decorate homes, businesses, or public transportation platforms. Classes also fuel creativity with food and drink, whether it's a glass of BYOB wine or a cocktail purchased from an onsite bartender. Shelton oversees each party, guiding artists with advice gained through years of canvas time.
