Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today’s Groupon to Art & Soul Gallery Studio in Windsor. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a wine lover’s night out, including instruction and materials to hand-paint two wine glasses and a selection of wines and cheeses (a $60 value).
- For $30, you get a girl’s night out, including instruction and materials to decorate silk scarves and refreshments (up to a $60 value).
Owner of Art & Soul, Lis-el Crowley, guides craft-makers through delicate wine-glass-painting and vibrant scarf-dying sessions, accompanied by tasty treats and a relaxed atmosphere. The wine lover’s night out encourages oenophiles to celebrate their favorite means of hydration by hand-painting delicate designs across two vacant wine glasses and chanting odes of gratitude to budding grapevines. As the talented mentor teaches, her students can embark on a tasting itinerary, sipping an array of wines and nibbling on gourmet cheeses.
Ladies who opt for the girl’s night out receive precise instruction on preparing, painting, and voguishly donning silk scarves. Equipped with a blank canvas, pupils saturate their neck blankets with a rainbow of colors, before popping them in the microwave to set with steam. While dressing up their scarves, guests can snack on tapas and sangria or indulge in coffee, tea, and pastries.
Customers should call Art & Soul in advance, as both the wine lover’s and girl’s night out classes are taught by appointment only. Free parking is available for horseless carriages.
Art & Soul Gallery Studio
At Art & Soul Gallery Studio, Lis-el and Alexis Crowley lead casual art classes in a space brimming with creations by local artists. In the studio, the artists demonstrate steps in crafting items such as fused-glass pieces and painted scarves. Students follow along during class sessions, eventually bringing pieces into existence with their own individual flair and burgeoning telekinetic powers. After class, students can decamp to the gallery for a glimpse of other’s work or pop into a comfortable lounge for sips of coffee or tea.
