Drinking wine while painting can fuel great works of art, as evidenced by Michelangelo's mural in the wine cellar of the Sistine Chapel. Endorse creativity with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a BYOB canvas painting class at Sip & Stroke in Johns Creek (a $35 value). Classes are held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The professional instructors at Sip & Stroke spur students to create masterpieces as they sip wine in canvas painting classes. During each session, libation-toting artists imbue blank canvases with vibrant brush strokes as experienced teachers provide step-by-step guidance in recreating a well-known work of art. Throughout the evening, painters can sip wine or another drink of choice that they brought from home or distilled in a bathtub. Future Picassos can peruse the calendar and choose a class based on interest in painting a still life, a landscape, or a surreal portrait.
Sip & Stroke
In the spacious room of Sip & Stroke’s new location, students of all skill levels pick up brushes and daub pigments onto canvases to create works of art during instructor-guided canvas-painting classes. The art studio especially caters to children, who can take on canvases, clay, or strings of beads on their own, or explore creativity with a parent during Mom & Me sessions. Guests of any age are always free to craft a one-of-a-kind keepsake, creating glittering baubles from the studio’s wall of beads or decorating a pre-made ceramic piece that they hand off to experts to glaze and fire.
