Thankfully the ladies on my local nest board thought it would be a great holiday get together and I was quick to sign up. I love that we were able to have a private party (there were 16 of us), we got to pick the painting and bring all the snacks and drinks we wanted.
A little intimidated at first with the blank white canvas, I was very thankful for the slowed down instructions from our teacher. We got our paint on, starting with the background and then the base of the tree.
There was a little break in the middle to do our ornament exchange (and fill up on the wine) before we got back to work. We barely finished up within the 2 hour block, but in all fairness we did start late and did our fair share of chatting while working. I'm really happy with how it turned out and can't wait to hang it up in our house.
This is definitely something that would be right up Chris' alley and would make a great date night except I wouldn't hang up two of the same painting. I did notice on the calendar that there is a day where they do a combo in one sitting (a wine glass and a wine bottle), so maybe if they offer that again we could schedule it in.
Would you consider yourself very artsy? I think that was the best part of painting with a twist, no matter your talent level everyone was able to come out with a pretty awesome painting.
