Pro Tip: $5 Margaritas, martinis and wells
Canvas n Cocktails hosts painting nights at several different venues for kids, adults, and all-ages events. On Thursdays, aspiring artists can enjoy margaritas and martinis at Luna De Noche Tex-Mex Grill and Saturday afternoon classes head to
The Spaghetti Warehouse's patio for sangria and wine specials. There are other locations too, and even the art that students create varies: recent themes include a colorful owl and dreamcatchers. Canvas n Cocktails provides all the supplies, including paint, brushes, easels, aprons, and the canvas that you'll take home and model your home's entire interior design upon.
While many people have the opportunity to peruse an artist's work at a gallery, they don't often get the chance to paint alongside them. But Wine and Palette brings admirers and creators together. Their classes, held at local cafes, restaurants, and bars, are led by talented local artists, who guide students of all artistic levels in re-creating one of their masterpieces step-by-step.
They encourage their students to experiment with light, shadow, and scale. This boosts self-expression and results in unique versions of cityscapes, animals, and still-life portraits with squirrel skulls instead of oranges.
At a base price of $300,000 each, only 150 versions of the 2012 Lamborghini LP570-4 Super Trofeo exist worldwide. One of them—production No. 123, in fact—dwells at DFW Exotic Rentals, along with exotic vehicles from Ferrari, Porsche, and BMW available to take out for lessons or short-term spins. DFW's resident driving coach, Les Betchner, draws on more than 20 years of racing and precision-driving expertise to teach the proper techniques for handling the sports cars' tires lined with cleats. Outside of Betchner’s lessons, the fleet zooms out of the lot for corporate-event rentals, recreational drives, or chauffeured rides.
Sure, most people smile in photos. But in Brian Hilson's portraiture work, his subjects' smiles are so natural and radiant that they don't look posed—it looks like he caught them in a moment of genuine happiness. This is likely in part to his mission to give each project "a fresh perspective instead of applying a formula," one that has led to his pictures being seen everywhere from local bars to Zagat.com. He's worked with food, street fashion, headshots, and bridal work and is currently focusing on LGBT weddings. He also leads classes in photography and software such as Photoshop.
Mix cocktails and creativity, and you have the recipe for a fun night out. That's the philosophy at Wine and Paint Parties, a company that hosts pop-up art events at popular bars and restaurants throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Participants receive all the necessary supplies and instruction from a trained artist. Students nibble bites and sip on wine while recreating an image from Wine and Paint Parties' extensive gallery, which includes images inspired by Van Gogh, Steinlen, as well as originals by Wine and Paint Parties artists.
