The teachers of UnWined Art ply creative works from their students with step-by-step instruction, tasty desserts, and complimentary glasses of juice or wine. Welcoming any student 18 or older, teachers select a new painting for each class they hold and carefully guide attendees through the re-creation of the images, from simple still lifes to masterpieces such as The Scream and Starry Night. In addition to snacks and drinks, instructors provide all necessary supplies because they believe the creation of a painting is more valuable than the cost of paint and canvas that go into it, despite protests from roving economists.
