The Paint Barrel

I think the theme of my summer has been getting in touch with my artsy side. First the sewing projects and now painting. Can't imagine what else I'm capable of! I was so excited to get the chance to attend a painting class.  I joined a group of friends last week at our local studio slash wine bar. I really had no expectations besides to have fun because I really don't consider myself artistic. So when I walked into the studio and say this wall, I was a bit overwhelmed. But I vowed to try my best.

The instructor picked out the birds on a wire painting and everyone in the room learned how to paint that particular picture. For two hours, the instructor walks you through each step of how to create this painting to look somewhat professional. Ok, maybe we can't go as far as saying professional. But it's decent. 

Here is a little peek into this particular studio.

Our group of six painting our lovely birds on a wire. Everyone puts their own creative touch on their painting.

Here I am demonstrating the goal of a painting class that serves wine. Never put your brush or cup down. At least that was my goal!
And because I am such a good little Marine wife I thought it only appropriate to add a CH-46 on the horizon. My husband was so impressed. I kind of was too. That thing is on point! Maybe I should teach these classes?!? I kid, I kid. 

Overall, great girls night out. I'm curious if any of you have tried this and if you enjoyed it? Or if you thought it was still difficult despite the instruction?

  1. I have always wanted to participate in a wine and painting class but I haven't had the opportunity to do so yet. It looks like a great time! :)

  2. A group of girlfriends and I went for my sister's birthday in March and we all loved it!! At first it felt really stressful to try and follow along and do it "right" when we were obviously unskilled (some of us more than others!) but after awhile we relaxed and really got into it! I can't wait to go again!

  3. So much fun! And great motto, "never put the wine glass or paint brush down!" I like where your head's at! :)

  4. I loooove these kinds of events!! Your painting came out great, especially with your special touch ;)

  5. I love these events, they are so much fun!

  6. Fun!
