Cocktails & Paint combines the best of two worlds. On the one hand, their social painting classes let students of all artistic abilities express themselves and take home colorful keepsakes. On the other hand, these classes take place at local restaurants and bars, meaning students get to sip wine, beer, and craft cocktails between brushstrokes.
Apart from the drinks and the National Medal of Arts for your work, Cocktails & Paint supplies everything, including the canvas and the step-by-step instruction. Instructors even dole out one-on-one assistance when needed, so that no one gets stuck or left behind. And as for the paintings themselves, projects vary by class but range from sunny flowers on wine glasses to landscapes across canvases.
