Get Creative With One Of These Light & Fresh Recipes (+Wine Pairings)Get creative in the kitchen (and the livingroom) with these recipes that pair perfectly with a glass of wine and a paint night from home!
This is such a great time of year! Brighter days, lovely weather, and we’re all finally breaking out of our homes! The long winter, filled with cold and wet days is coming to an end and we’re so eager for the change.
We’re busy teaching classes, both in the studio and virtually, and LOVE the warm days where we can open the doors and let the sun shine in!
You may be looking to join us in a class at the studio OR maybe prefer to work from home!
Our virtual classes are so much fun AND you can enjoy the food and drinks of your choice while you paint from the comfort of your own space! Dress down and spend a night in with loved ones as you enjoy some wine, food, good company, and getting creative with a painting class! Light crisp and sparkling wines are always a fantastic choice, but a light red can be substituted if preferred (espeically with lamb or beef).
