$42 for a BYOB Painting Class for Two ($70 Value)
At 6:30 p.m. throughout the week, groups of at least 10 aspiring artists crack open bottles of BYO wine and beer or sip on provided soda and water before following their instructor's lead through the night’s project. A new template is chosen for each two-hour class, including seasonal scenes and classics such as Starry Night and Starry Night with Death Star. The studio provides all supplies, including paint, canvases, brushes, corkscrews, and glasses. View the schedule of upcoming classes and paintings here.
Wine, Paint & Canvas
Deborah Reavis, the resident artist at Wine, Paint & Canvas, has nearly two decades of teaching art under her belt, making her an excellent tutor for classrooms full of fledgling painters of all ages. Seated in front of rows of provided easels and surrounded by the works of past classes, students follow their instructors’ directions to produce the evening’s piece. Though everyone works from the same template, each student has the chance to stylistically personalize their work by mixing colors or painting only the coolest facial hair on self-portraits. Before brush touches canvas, guests can mingle over glasses of BYO wine and bottles of beer, with soda available for purchase.
