Specializing in decorating domicile walls with unique colors and textures, Sterling Design Studio imparts its faux painting techniques to homeowners and designers during BYOB classes. Throughout each session, which lasts up to three hours, students practice their skills on canvas, using stencils, plasters, and paints to create realistic patterns such as crackles, wood designs, and decoy thermostats. Pupils arrive at each class clad in paint-appropriate attire—such as worn-out jeans, old T-shirts, and flashy berets—with their favorite wine or champagne in tow. On Tuesday, the inspiring aromas from wines and a complimentary cheese platter waft throughout the Sterling Design Studio, and on Saturday, baked goods and flutes of bubbling orange juice fuel classes at the Shelby Design Center.
