Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child.

Hurry to redeem your Groupon, as it expires in just three months.
At Whimsy Paint & Sip, art lovers of all ages and experience levels can spend time in Picasso's disproportionate shoes, painting and pairing their artistic efforts with a cocktail, glass of wine, or nonalcoholic beverage from the menu (additional purchase required). Creative treks commence when the artistically inclined pre-select an easy-to-paint canvas masterpiece they'd like to recreate from the shop's calendar, which includes a plethora of natural and whimsical options alongside classics such as Monet's Bridge Over Water Lilies and Van Gogh's Sunflowers. The events take place under the palette-primed eye of one of Whimsy’s professional artists, who lead broods of brushers through each stroke, all over the inspirational din of funky tunes. All supplies (which are mostly made in the United States), including the canvas, paints, and easels, are provided by the studio. When the paint clears, each former fingerpainter will have a wall-ready piece created by their very own hands, lending a more personal touch to any bare foyer, lifeless living room, or less-than-stunning meat locker.
