Our Date Night of Fun
When we walked into the venue, I knew right away it would be low-key and not intimidating at all. We were surrounded by the artwork on the walls and individual tables set up with canvases, easels, paints on a paper plate, and a plastic cup full of water and artist brushes. Ahhh! So much fun awaited us.
We couldn’t wait to sip wine and craft a painting, too!
Our instructor, Sarah, was super nice and a lot of fun. She was engaging and made us feel at ease with the whole painting experience. She patiently walked us through each stage of the painting process and waited until everyone had completed their work before moving to the next stage.
At Painting with a Twist in Denton, Texas, each artist works independently on their own canvas but can share ideas and encouragement throughout the class if they choose to do so. Our event was from 7-9pm but the time flew by!
We painted a cherry blossom tree in layers. We started with the background of a grey sky with a yellow sunset.
Then we added in a few grey and black mountains.
Followed by the tree trunk and tree limbs.
Finally, we added in the cherry blossom flowers or leaves. This is where creativity really came out. Some people finished in minutes and others (like me Type A personality) took quite a while. Everyone’s painting looked completely different.
This was my and my husband’s completed paintings side by side. It was fun to try and match them up!
The classes always end with each person proud of their work and excited about taking home something they created on their own! They encourage you to sign your piece of art on the front or back of the canvas ~ so much fun!
Plus, it’s rewarding knowing that you supported local businesses while having fun doing something so creative!
You can purchase any of the paintings hanging on the walls around you to support your favorite local artist.
A fun evening at Painting with a Twist in Denton is truly a unique experience everyone should try out. I guarantee that no matter what skill level you’re at when it comes to artistry, you’ll walk away feeling inspired after this fun painting experience!
