Denton let's me paint

It'd been years since i'd driven out to Denton. A few weeks back that all changed. I never been to a "paint and sip" type venue. I drove, and drove some more. The excitement buildin'. Would I be able to paint? I arrived to a quaint area of Denton full of old charm. The Courthouse was the first thing to catch my eye. I parked and walked over. I was greeted by the friendliest staff you'd ever meet. I stood, waititn. Everyone invited seemed to know each other and had been to many "press" events together. Would I be the youngest and least "known" attendee?



I snapped pictures and introduced myself. Relieved that I wasn't the only one who had never done a paint and sip class. Excited that I wasn't the only one who was nervous. Moments later an old fran walked through. Ok, maybe she isn't that old of a fran, but she is a fran nonetheless. Addie walked in and it turns out we were seated next to each other. Phew, I had dogged that one. You know the awkward havin' to make a new fran quickly. After a brief introduction of the services provided, the paintin was to begin. I absolutely adored the instructors and the vibe they inspired. They were patient, they were kind. They were helpful/ Really, the were loads of fun and didn't make me feel like a fool when my picture kept lookin' wonky. They went step by step. It didn't even matter your skill level. Everyone had fun and produced beautiful works of art.




It's great how we were all given the same instruction but each produced different works of art.

If' you've never been to a Painting with a Twist than I suggest you get your bottom to one ASAP. You'll not be disappointed. You can click that pretty link above to get all the deets on pricin' and classes offered.

  12. We FINALLY got a paint and sip studio in Albuquerque and I LOVE going there. It's amazing how at the end of the night you have something beautiful for your house.

    And potentially a nice lil buzz.

    Total win.
