Watercolors and Whiskey (BYOW)
Arts & DIY
Hey! I believe there are only two ways to look at this: A. The only thing better than watercolor painting is painting and drinking whiskey. Or B. The only thing better than whiskey is….yep, you guessed it, painting with watercolors and sipping a delicious whiskey drink that you just made. Whichever angle you are coming from, I am confident you will have a wonderful experience. I provide the drink mixers, and all the art materials. You bring the whiskey. This 2.5 HOUR class is a perfect introductory class with a fun twist! You can follow a recipe to craft a tasty mixed whiskey drink or improvise. Then, while sipping on your first liquid creation, I will introduce you to materials and basic techniques of watercolor painting. After that I will guide you through a painting step by step. Come along with us and discover how to use this seductive, mysterious medium to excercise your creative side! BYOW (Bring Your Own Whiskey). Feel free to bring another type of alcohol if whiskey is not your thing. Must be 21+ to drink. Please plan on taking public transit, have a Designated Driver or take a Lyft! What You Can Expect:
Bring a small bottle of Whiskey is you are 21+.
All art materials, snacks and drink mixers included. Watercolors are pretty clean but plastic aprons will be available.
