After Joan Duce and her siblings Jim and Katy Reischling attended a painting class, they soon decided they enjoyed the pastime enough to open their own studio. Five local painters—some of whom have painted their whole lives, and have taught classes elsewhere—have joined the owners of Embellished in their mission to immerse visitors in a painting class free from the formalities of other art classes, such as berets and white-tie suits. The teachers lead students equipped with aprons, acrylic paints, and brushes through a step-by-step painting process from seats at private easels. Under their guidance, students have created canvas works such as a diptych of a vintage truck, portraits of flowers and trees, and re-creations of famous paintings such as Van Gogh's Starry Night. As they paint, participants can sip red and white wines and locally brewed IPAs, and snack on hors d'oeuvres to the tune of provided music and the sounds of paint drying on canvas.

It was a fun,entertaining evening. I did not feel like my attempt at artistic impression of the Seattle skyline was great art butreally enjoyed myself in the attempt.

My friend and I loved Embellished! The experience, people, location, and the fact that we novices could, with the help of their expert trainer, paint something beautiful enough to bring home and hang on the wall! Amazing! LOVED the day ... Will definitely go again!
