When it's time to let down your hair, do you have a hard time deciding whether to do something active or just kick back with friends over a glass of wine? Thanks to the “paint and sip” craze, you don't have to choose! Laugh and socialize while you learn to create your own artistic masterpiece.
Grab a group of pals and plan a night out at one of these lively Corpus Christi studios. Fun is more important than talent, although you may discover skills you didn't know you had.
At this whimsically named studio you can bring beer or wine to sip and enjoy your favorite snack while an instructor guides you through the steps to replicate the session's featured painting. Classes run from 7 p.m. till 10 p.m. with Saturday morning kids' sessions from noon till 2 PM.
Fees are $35 for adults and $30 for children and include all necessary art supplies. Cups and wine openers are also available, but plan on bringing your own ice. The Tipsy Canvas gives back to the community with fundraisers where a portion of all proceeds goes to charities such as Autism Awareness and March of Dimes. Visit the website to view the current calendar and make a reservation.
The Vintage Easel adds variety to their classes with a number of special events. During "Paint Your Own" sessions you can choose to recreate a painting from a previous class or even a favorite work from home. Adorn your painting with rhinestones on "Blinged Gurlz Nite Out" or enjoy a leisurely Saturday "Mimosa Morning."
Regular class fees are $35 but receive 50% off when you use the promo code COUPON during on-line checkout. "Better Than A Coupon" nights are $15. Bring your own wine (champagne for "Mimosa Morning"), glasses and snacks and the studio provides all art supplies. Choose an upcoming class from the on-line schedule and purchase your tickets.
