It's time to pARTy!

March 24 2017

We have such a great time with all of our Twisters during open classes, but did you know we also do Private Parties??!! We enjoy getting to help our Twisters plan those special events that celebrate engagements, weddings, babies, Birthdays, graduations, family reunions, team building or just friends getting together! We have a Private Party Studio that accommodates up to 24 and encourage our party goers to decorate as much as they would like! You can also bring food and beverages (beer,wine, sodas -no hard alcohol!) make it as intimate or big as you would like! We help you plan from start to finish and love it when your party day arrives!! If you want to throw your own party, here are a few basics you should know- YOU pick the time, day (based on availabilty!) and get to choose your own painting! Just need 15 painters (10 for kids parties). No extra charge for the Party Studio. Deposit of 3 paid seats and a signed contract to hold the room. You can bring beer/wine (no hard alcohol) or soda and such. Feel free to have your event catered or do ala-carte! You have 30 minutes before and after the party to set up, enjoy, visit, pack up and go! Let me know if I can help you celebrate something special or just make any day a special one! Give me (Kathy) a call at 803-661-9711 and we'll plan an event to remember! ... | Read More

A new Year! Live Creatively!

January 5 2017

There is always that push to make resolutions for the New Year- a clean slate, a way to reinvent yourself. Some of us (Hi there!) tend to make the same ones over and over again: lose weight, get fit, eat healthy (still NO to KALE!) and for some it's a new job, new state, etc!! Why not consider adding "BE CREATIVE" to that list? One of the greatest things I see when I watch our Twisters paint (new painters and those who have been painting a while) is the joy they experience when they create! They lose themselves in the painting, the rhythm of creation as they paint the background and add color and form to their canvas! It is one of the most enjoyable parts of my job, to watch that transformation. People come in and forget the problems they are facing, they "unkink" as they put brush to canvas and shortly they are joking around with the other painters just having a good time. What we do is so much more than show folks how to paint- we give them an escape. Come and escape with us this coming year!... | Read More

Where'd the year go?

December 22 2016

What a whirl-wind last few months!! We have had such and amazing time getting to meet so many new and wonderful people and helping them create their very own works of art while they spend time with friends or celebrate important events!! We are winding up the year with some wonderful KIDZ CLASSES and some awesome paintings for the adults! Looking to the New Year, why not make a resolution you can keep AND enjoy? Come join us for an evening (or two or three!?) and discover how talented you are! Beats running, weight lifting and dieting by a LONG shot!! Instead of sweating, you will be in a comfortable room, sipping a beverage of your choice (wine, beer, soda, coffee?!) nibbling on a treat you bring and painting a masterpiece!! It's fun, relaxing, and so much easier than doing laps! We hope to see you in the coming year!! Come and start a new resolution that you will actually enjoy!... | Read More

Racing toward the End!

November 22 2016

Here we are with just a little over a month left in 2016! It has been an amazing year and we look forward to what 2017 brings us- It was in October of 2015 that my husband met me at the airport with flowers after I had been visiting my people in New Mexico with a question. He wanted to know if I was tired of being a “Domestic Goddess”…umm, no?!?! Over dinner he shared with me what he had been researching in my absence. A new direction for us and one that meant he would retire and be off the road!! I was all in for that; and Painting with a Twist Columbia was born! Now, we are a little more than 3 months old with our wonderful studio and amazing artists. We have survived a build out, two different trainings, a convention, a hurricane, crazy hours and lots of fun. We have met so many wonderful people and developed new relationships. We’ve hosted parties for weddings, bridal showers, and birthdays or just helped friends who wanted to celebrate their friendships! Even when we had 3 private parties and two regular classes in one day, where we were setting up and tearing down 2 studios to accommodate the schedule, it was a blast. We were exhausted, but it was the happy exhaustion that comes from loving what you do. Most folks endure their job but I am lucky enough to enjoy mine. If you are looking for a fun way to while away a few hours, come see me! Let me help you plan a fun event, or help you select a painting to help you to stretch your talents! Here’s wishing you and yours an amazing and blessed 2017! Your Painting with a Twist Family Ron, Kathy, Alli, Cori, Imani, Katie and Olivia ... | Read More
