Fun with Art and Wine

Fun with Art and wine


This is a fun two-hour adventure for those who like wine but may know nothing about making a painting.  Join Melanie and Brian Gold in creating a 12×16 acrylic painting on canvas in a step-by-step process. Local landscape subject matter and a surprisingly fool-proof process lead to fun, laughs, more wine and your painting is finished – suitable for framing! Class runs from 6-8pm

Wine will be available to participants 21 years and older only.

Cost: $35 includes all art materials to complete your painting!
