About Our Studio
Drink, listen to music, and dance (if you want to!) while creating your own work of art. We provide all painting supplies and artist instructions. At the end of class, you'll get to take home your own completed painting. No art experience is needed. Simply BYOB, snacks, and friends for a twisted good time!
Painting with a Twist is a unique date night, girls' night out idea, moms' night out, hen party, family day out, and a fun way to meet new people! Browse our painting options on the Calendar page.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
December 29 2013
2014 will be an exciting New Year for you and us at Painting with a Twist. Our franchise locations have increased to more than 100 studios since the beginning just four short years ago. Our selection of copyright paintings has grown in that same period of time from 300 to over 3,000. We are very proud of being a Louisiana based corporation, following our heritage and culture with the teachings of the artistry created in Acadiana and giving back to our local community. Unfortunately we lost one of our greatest local artist recently, George Rodrigue. Painting with a Twist is very honored to have his permission and the privilege of teaching our customers how to create their very own Blue Dog. In his memory, we will be holding a "Paint Your Own Blue Dog" class on Friday, January 24, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. We will donate $10 on behalf of each person attending this class to the George Rodrigue Foundation. Our goal is to make sure that each customer has an experience of Fun Art and that you take home a painting that you would be proud of while having a great time creating it with friends and family. Remember our motto, "A little paint, a little wine and a whole lot of fun". See you soon....
