The cutest thing happened last week! Ricky, new father to baby girl Tyler, called us up wanting to surprise his wife. The result? Tiny Dancer Art! We think the artwork is so cute, but the moments their family shared are the most darling. Here's a few snapshots from the event. Mom was super surprised to find a b-day gift waiting for her when she got to her date night celebration Friday night!

Tyler is one lucky gal to have such a thoughtful pops! We're hooked on this idea and can't wait to do more! Check back in the holidays (hint hint).

1. Collaboration

Team projects make up the majority of the tasks given in the workplace today.  In order to have success, a collaborative team environment is essential. Make your corporate team building activity useful and enjoyable by using group painting assignments that will help tap into their creative spirit.

Expressing your artistic ideas to your team may be difficult. Working through these issues by using different channels of communication will demonstrate how you can push through difficult situations and appreciate your teams’ diversity.

First dates can usually go in two directions, good… or not so good. Use this new opportunity to learn about your date and yourself to see if they are the right fit for you. There are many areas to consider when planning a first date. Here are some questions you may want to ask yourself when planning a Wine & Canvas first date:

Is this date adventurous?

The dinner and a movie idea is very much outdated. A wine and canvas first date shows that some thought and creativity went into the planning. Look at this date as a mini adventure, maybe something that neither you nor your date has done before. Either way it will open up new conversation topics and create excitement building up to the date.

Is this a good environment for a first date?

Wine & Canvas dates create a very relaxed and comfortable setting. If you are worried about not being creative or good at painting, don’t be! The expert instructors are easy to follow and will help you create a masterpiece. The painting class setting is intimate enough to allow you to talk and get to know each other, however; having a third party instructor and an activity to do will break things up if the situation gets awkward. Did we mention there is wine? Help yourself to the wine selection while you are painting to relieve some tension from the situation.

Is there an escape plan?

Hopefully you will not need to take advantage of this escape plan, but there is one. Our classes are run on a schedule letting you determine how long you will be spending with your date. When the time is up you have the option of saying your goodbyes or moving on to your next adventure. This aspect will make you feel better if conversation is running dry and things are not going the way you planned.

Let us help you create this magical experience here at Pinot’s Palette-The Woodlands! Visit our website at, email or call us at (936)-321-ARTS(2787) to set up a class time.  

Paint. Drink. Have Fun.
