13 in ’13: Paint & Sip Party!

Hey there!  I’m back with another update on our quest to complete 13 fun things in 2013.  Last weekend, my friends and I visited the Uncorked Artist for a BYO wine and painting class.  Wine and creativity and fun with my girlfriends?  Can I just say – what a GENIUS idea for a business!!

We had a blast.  Basically, you bring your own wine and snacks, and the school provides the paint supplies, canvas, smocks, and instruction to paint a themed painting.  The theme of our class was “Circle Tree.”  Although the instructor gave us general guidelines, everyone picked their own color palette for their painting, and we had license to get as creative as we wanted with the painting.

Here are a few pics from the night:

I definitely encourage you to try out a painting class if you never have before.  For a type-A personality like me, it was challenging to just relax and get creative and paint with abandon.  But it was so fun!  This would be such a great idea for a unique date night, or a girls’ night out, or a bridal party activity.

How do you let your inner artist come out and play?  Do you consider yourself to be a creative or artistic person?
