Inspired by the idea that creativity should be not only about expression but also about having fun in the process, the staff at Whimsy Paint and Sip Art Studio shows groups how to make colorful works of art with easy-to-follow steps. Layering colorful paints on canvases provided by the studio, students build compositions ranging from re-creations of modern masterpieces to landscapes and still lifes. During painting events, guests can sip on a variety of beer or Colorado wines available by the glass or bottle. Beyond the weekly events, the staff maintains a selection of canvases and frames in their boutique and also hosts birthday parties where children have fun playing with paint and parents can figure out if the tuition to that preschool of the arts is paying off.
The trip from the forest to the living room is a short one thanks to Tree Land Christmas Trees. This company imports its Noble Fir, Grand Fir, and Frasier Fir trees straight from North Carolina and Oregon, and within days of being harvested they end up poised in one of 10 lots scattered throughout the area. Tree Land Christmas Trees sees the act of picking out a tree as a ritual as much as a purchase, and so they welcome families to stroll through their lots, inhale the fresh smells, and pick out the tree that will decorate their home for the duration of the holiday season. The helpful staff will even tie the tree to customers' vehicles or schedule deliveries for customers whose cars or bike baskets can't accommodate the tree.
In the spirit of the holidays, Tree Land Christmas Trees also makes it a point to donate trees to families in need.
