Art and wine are like Thelma and Louise: a classic pair unwise to combine while driving. Let your paintings take flight with today’s Groupon: for $45, you and a friend get a BYOB art class at Carrie Curran Art Studios in Scottsdale (up to a $90 value). Class schedules vary, so call ahead to reserve a spot.
Esteemed artist Carrie Curran founded Carrie Curran Art Studios with a mission to aid avid artists of all ages in finding their inner Picasso under the guidance of skilled, local instructors. Carrie’s Van Gogh Vino class, held in her bright, airy studio, helps legal adults let loose with its fun, nonthreatening vibe, self-provided refreshments, and free cans of oil for tin-joint spritzing. With art supplies, aprons, ice, glasses, and music provided, participants need only bring a favorite friend, a preferred bottle of wine, and unfairly favored snacks to enjoy the three-hour painting session. Sip on spirits while wielding a multicolored acrylic palette to re-create a selected 16"x20" masterpiece, perfect for framing and hanging over fireplaces or laminating and using as a sand-dune sled.
Students are asked to arrive 15–20 minutes before class to set up, socialize, and fit berets. Before attending, take a gander at some of the previous classes' work or Carrie’s own paintings for inspiration.
