Fall is an amazing time of year and nothing is more iconic to fall than the pumpkin! The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word, “pepon”, meaning “large melon” but the pumpkin itself is believed to have originated in North America thousands of years ago.
While a huge food staple, pumpkins also became an element of décor with the introduction of the Jack-o-Lantern. Based on an Irish myth about Stingy Jack and the Devil, Irish immigrants opted to use pumpkins in the place of turnips to represent Jack’s most famous lantern.
Beyond the Jack-o-Lantern, the pumpkin has become a core design element around the house to usher in the autumn season. At Painting with a Twist, we honor the tradition with a variety of pumpkin art projects!
We are offering many types of pumpkin art classes. Whether paintings on canvas or wooden cutout door hangers, we have something to add spice to your fall decor!
Only during the month of October, you can paint pumpkins! Choose from six different styles. Our artists will guide you through the process so you will have a unique pumpkin to take home with you!
Find a studio where you can celebrate pumpkin season.
Who doesn’t love fall? We all look forward to a new season that brings sweater weather, changing leaves and everything pumpkin spice.
Painting with a Twist wants to help you find the perfect way to celebrate this cozy time of year with your friends and family.

Let’s be honest. Dads get a little less attention on their special day than mothers (rightfully so). Father’s Day is probably just a little more significant than Grandparents Day on the, “Most amazing holidays” scale. So, we want to pay a little homage to the fathers out there who may be feeling a bit neglected on their special day of the year.
A Father’s Day gift is hopefully not that impulse buy as you are standing in the checkout line at your local box store. Put a little bit of thought into your gift! Painting with a Twist makes it easy (and fun) for you with 2 options.
Dads love getting sentimental gifts from their kids so painting FOR dad is a great option. Painting with a Twist has a plethora of painting choices for you to choose from. This means you can find something your dad would enjoy hanging on his wall.
Whether a seasoned painter or beginner, Painting with a Twist classes are suited to any experience level. We supply everything from brush to canvas and even a resident artist to help guide your creativity. Check the calendar for a location near you to find the painting he’d love the most.
Most dads love to spend time doing something with their kids. Something that bonds and creates memories. Painting is that exact experience and you get to take a memento (a brilliant piece of art!) home with you that will always bring back that memory when you look it.
Whether you’re planning a day with dad that includes lunch, and perhaps drinking his favorite beverage or a mom planning an activity for your husband and kids, painting is a great idea! Whatever your father likes to do, we have options to suit the choosiest of dads.
If you are looking for some great bonding time and building amazing memories dad will remember for years to come, then paint WITH dad.
Find a studio near you and schedule some time with dad for his special day.

#NationalIrishCoffeeDay is this week and we couldn’t be more excited to talk about our favorite Irish Coffee recipe. There isn’t much to dislike about this steamy and sweet concoction. It’s the perfect blend to help you relax with a drink and wake up with a jolt! Not to mention, it almost always comes with whipped cream. This Colorful Cocktail recipe is classic. When it comes to Sangria recipes, we like to get a little creative – but the Irish Coffee needn’t be complicated. Simple ingredients make this toasty cocktail shine on a dreary winter’s day. However, if you prefer a little more flavor, there are endless recipes available at your fingertips. Like The Spruce’s creamy caramel recipe or Genius Kitchen’s rich, dark mocha recipe that hides a hint of Creme de Menthe for the most luxurious touch ever.
Pro tip: Get really creative and add some snazz with a dollop of colorful whipped cream on top instead of the usual white. Our favorite color to make is PINK! It’s an easy way to achieve a striking (and fun!) result.
