Couples Watercolor and Whiskey Painting (BYOW)

There currently are no dates scheduled for this course. Message the host to request a new date or private event.

PRICE IS FOR TWO PEOPLE.  Bring your date or a friend!  I provide the drink mixers, and all the art materials including quality paints and paper.  You bring the whiskey (I will email you with a suggestion to match the mixers). In this 2.5 HOUR class we’ll start off by crafting a tasty whiskey cocktail.  While sipping on your liquid creation, I will introduce you to materials and basic techniques of watercolor painting. After some experimentation each couple will receive two sheets of paper and create two unique abstract paintings through a collaborative process.  During this class, you will have a fun, relaxing time exploring the mysterious nature of watercolor painting, develop a way to exercise creativity and take home two paintings.  Come along with us and discover the joy of this seductive, pleasurable medium!
