Sometimes grownups need to tap into their right brains for some spontaneity, free associations and a vacation from their left-brains. This is where Painting with a Twist comes in--along with a glass of wine and appetizers. It is located mainly in the Southeast U.S. especially in Louisiana and Texas. This growing franchise with 52 locations including Dallas, is catching on with men and women alike. You are likely to meet surgeons, housewives, corporate executives, recent college graduates, grandmothers, entire families and singles at each event. No matter who attends there is a relaxed fun atmosphere with carefully screened artists as teachers.
Wine and food are welcomed while you paint step by step a picture of your choice. Currently there are over 2,000 paintings to choose from including masterpieces. The artwork ranges from landscapes, abstracts, still-life art and portraits. Their monthly calendar lets you decide which class you would like to attend. There are also spaces for private parties celebrating birthdays, sorority functions, office parties and other events.
Painting with a Twist’s slogan is, “It’s a little bit of paint, a little bit of wine, and a whole lot of fun!” Even those who believe they cannot draw, much less paint, will be surprised. Everything is supplied except for the food and beverages, so it is easy to fit into your schedule. There are several locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex including central Dallas at the southwest corner of Lovers Lane and Inwood Road. There are two and three hour classes ranging from $35--$45.
Check out the Painting with a Twist calendar. Take a peek at the Mr. Fauve nude. Look out the French Quarter Window. Enjoy Pegasus and the quaint Austin Motel reminiscent of the Route 66 motels in the good old days. No matter which painting you choose it is bound to take you away from stress to relaxation. Some frequent visitors call it therapy, while others call it fun. Either way the only whine will be the wine you bring.
