My birthday was last week and as a special treat one of my best friends, Lindsey, took me to an awesome place called Wine and Design! We painted on canvas with an instructor showing us different types of brush strokes and techniques. Such a fun night out and a really nice memory!
We sipped delicious wine and nibbled cheese and fruit throughout the class. I never realized that those two simple things (wine and cheese) could make you feel so at ease! It was such a low stress, fun evening! Everyone was laughing and making a lovely mess with paint. We wore aprons luckily as I was a bit too dressed up for the event (better to be over dressed than under though).
We were given orange, red, yellow, and black to work with originally but I asked for a bit of white to mix with my red to make a nice pink. It turned out really well for the sunset I was painting. The little catbird was adorable to do because I added a whispy tail for him.
I was talking to the instructor and apparently Wine and Design is a nationwide franchise! I had no idea things like this existed but apparently they do! I live in a real southern style community (and by southern I mean redneck) and cultural activities that involve the arts are not so easy to come by around here.
This type of activity is just so fun for everyone! They do bachelorette parties, kids birthdays, date night themed sessions, fundraisers, and so much more. I just went to a regular session but while we were there another private event was going on in the studio next to ours and it sounded like they were getting a little tipsy!
Anyway, it was a great time and a nice memory! Here are our finished paintings!
