For more than 10 years, amateur Picasso’s and lovers of wine and fun have been enjoying paint and sip parties. You don’t need any artistic skills or supplies. All that’s required is a willingness to learn and have fun. Studios are staffed by one or more artists. They will instruct you step by step from a blank canvas to something you can proudly hang on your wall.
Memories are one of the human minds’ greatest wonders. And paint parties are great for memories. So get a group of friends together and join a class. Pinot’s Palette has locations all across the country including one at 175 W. Jackson Avenue in Naperville. Each class has its own theme and you can view the full calendar here. Some of their themes are Beach Boardwalk, Van Gogh’s Paris, and Starry Night Chicago. Either you’ll have lots of laugh as you discover you may be better off drawing stick figures or you’ll get a great surprise as you find out how talented you really are.
They provide all the supplies needed to paint, as well as aprons. They have a bar onsite with a large selection of red and white wines, beer, spirits, soft drinks, coffee, and tea. You’re welcome to bring your own food or use their snack bar. A reservation in advance is required.
