We came. We painted. We conquered. Or at least I think that’s what happened.. A new sensation hit and spread like wildfire – painting classes with a bar.

In most ‘big cities,’ there are studios and galleries that offer classes that you can sign up for and create your very own take-home canvas painting. The classes are led by a main artist who does the painting up front for everyone to see and there are a few other artists who roam around and will answer questions and give helpful tips. The main point of these classes, though, is that they are fun. Any age or skill level is welcome. And to make it even better, you can bring your own snacks or order drinks at the bar.

There are tons of different paintings to choose from when signing up for a class and when you get to class, you’re allowed to do whatever you want. Every instructor I’ve had so far has made a point to say that you are more than welcome to use whatever colors you want or to even paint a completely different painting than the one that the artist is going to be doing.

Any date night, girls night out, bachelorette party, etc., would perfectly fit into everything that these painting classes have to offer. We went to Pinot’s Palette in OKC and had a great time, so find a class near you and paint and sip till your masterpiece is complete, that’s what nugget says.
