Monday night I met a few friends for dinner, then we headed over to a new shop in Virginia Beach called Paint ‘n Sip, which is essentially an art class that shows you step-by-step how to paint a picture that you get to take home. I think I was the only one there who had ever attempted painting before, so we were looking forward to an entertaining evening.
We had a lot of fun! The instructions were easy to follow and it was great not having to clean up afterwards. ;-)
Here we are with our paintings:
(A couple of those were cell phone pics, so they are not the best quality. The others I stole from Alicia.) You can see in the first picture the original that we were attempting to recreate hanging on the wall.
Here’s a final shot of mine:
So, if you are in the Hampton Roads area, this is a fun night out with friends!
Anyone else out there ever done anything like this?
This is such a cool idea! Do you know if there are places like this any where else?
I think one of my friends had heard of something similar in Atlanta. I just did a search for “paint n sip” in google, and a couple other shops came up.
So funny! I teach this very thing in a small town in Tennessee, Smyrna @ Log Cabin Ceramics and more featuring THE STUDIO. It is soooo much fun! see me @ thestudiopaintingyourway.wordpress.com or logcabinceramicsandmore.com Love it!
