Are you someone who has always been curious about painting but a little nervous about the attempt? Perhaps this is in your new years resolution? Painting and drawing has always been something that my parents and brother excelled at more than me. The most I can conjure up on a good day is a good ole stick figure, less the details – this is why I stick to photography.

Here in the DFW area, a small business called Painting With A Twist has become quite popular. The basic concept is to come in solo or with a group of friends. You are encouraged to bring wine, snacks and will receive step by step direction to create a masterpiece of your own. Last week, I attended Painting With A Twist in Arlington with a group of girlfriends. I couldn’t have asked for a better time! Wine, snacks, Nicole was selected to have “the bell” in class meaning whenever the bell is rung, you must take a drink. During all of this, we paint!

Each attendee is provided with an easel, canvas, brushes and tray of the paint that you will need.

The class starts off with easy direction on how to create the masterpiece. It also starts off with wine. What a better way to relax than a glass or two?! What’s fun about this is on attendee is given a bell. Whenever that bell is rung, everyone drinks!

By the end of class, you will have this work of art created by YOU. (And yes, it will be a masterpiece, wine and all!)

Believe me, I was questioning how this would turn out and I couldn’t be prouder of my design! Take a look!

I decided to give my painting to my mom as a Christmas gift. It looked amazing in their living room with this candle light lite up. Also, it was perfect for the Vermont winter, bringing the outdoors in.


This is a whole lot of fun and we are already talking about going back. If you are looking for something different, to explore your artsy side and relax, this is your place. Check out the website and see if there’s a location near you! There’s a new painting nearly everyday, the options are endless!

      Haha! It’s a great idea for a mama’s night out! We loved it. I honestly didn’t think I could paint anything so this was a big accomplishment and it’s definitely encouraging to try it again.
