During Paint Along’s BYOB classes, savvy instructors guide novice Picassos as they brush, daub, and sweep acrylic hues onto 16”x20” canvases. Students grasping class-provided art tools copy a preselected image onto their canvases before toting it home to place on blank living-room walls or over paintings of safes. Search through Paint Along’s calendar to divine which painting, such as such as Poppies at Sunset or House in Provence, will be reproduced on a given night. Students are encouraged to arrive with a favorite bottle of wine or bubbly to help unlock muses and rinse paint-soiled hands.
Paint Along Nashville
Too much power has been given to first-grade art teachers. Or so the instructors and organizers of Paint Along Nashville think. On their website, these leaders of BYOB painting workshops encourage adults to "unleash [their] creative spirit from time to time," even if once, in an era before college-admissions exams included a finger-painting section, their elementary critique d'art "failed to recognize [their] 'Picasso potential.'"
During workshops, an encouraging instructor, a convivial group of fellow aspiring artists, and an uncorked bottle of vino foster creativity. In each workshop, groups paint the same template picture, which could be a landscape of an autumn afternoon or a still life of wine and cheese. As wine sloshes into glasses, and as brushes layer paint on canvases, students usually find themselves enjoying a BYOB evening and later taking home their creations.
