At Painting & Vino, visitors can swap standard date nights for something more creative. During three-hour classes, one of the company's skilled instructors—all of whom have art degrees—walk students through the process of creating their own work of art on canvas. Pupils need no experience, but if they feel inspired, the teachers not only welcome but encourage creative expression. This means they can follow along with the class, or see where their inspiration takes them and paint whatever they like.
Because Painting & Vino holds these events at restaurants and bars where creativity can flow as freely as wine and conversation, budding and seasoned artists can work comfortably and with confidence. Some venues even allow for BYOB, though guests should check with the venue first. One thing is guaranteed, though: at the end of each session, everyone has a piece of art ready to take home and hang.
Answer: absolutely zero. To prove it, we sent a very nervous writer to document his first paint and drink experience.
