Things to Do Before the Summer Ends

For families, the end of summer often means the start of school. No matter how young or old your kids are, painting together is a fun activity to do at the end of summer. Your child will get to create their own art to decorate their room. Or you can trade paintings, so your kid can tell their friends— proudly or sarcastically— “Yeah, my mom painted that,” and vice-versa. 

In some cases, you may have to say goodbye as your adult children head off to college. These last moments together should be cherished. Consider a parent-child paint night, which is much more than just one fun night together. Aside from unleashing your creative sides, you will be left with a work of art that serves as a reminder of the fun times you had together. If your child is old enough to drink alcohol, you’ll also score major cool points for bringing them to one of our adult paint and sip classes!

Click our Calendar to see what paintings are coming up soon. RSVP and our team will make you feel like family.

Fun Team Building for Teachers

You don't have to be an art teacher to see why our painting classes are a popular team building activity for school faculty. Like a good field trip, you'll get to bring your own drinks and snacks, and we'll provide all the supplies and instructions. Strangers will become friends as everyone supports each other to complete their own works of art. 

After class, your paintings can be used to decorate your classroom or office, where students may be inspired to learn that all of their teachers can also paint art, even those who didn't think they could. May their stories remind students that anyone can achieve anything they put their minds to! Visit our Party Info page for details, or reserve several seats in a public class on our Calendar page.

Things to Do with Friends This Summer

Everyone loves summer, but let's be honest— it's not always awesome outside. Sometimes you get sunburned or covered in mosquito bites. Other times, the clouds block the sun and it rains on your pool day. When these things happen, bring the fun indoors to our studio! 

Here, you'll enjoy our fresh air conditioning without any bugs. Our sunny team will make you forget whatever the weather is doing outside. We'll laugh and have fun as you paint a new masterpiece. Whatever your skill level, our team will make you feel like an artist. Just like a boat on the lake — except our water is in paintbrush cups and the scenery is something you'll paint on a canvas. 

Wouldn't it be nice to go to a summer party where no one has to think about what they look like in swimsuit? Click to our Calendar and RSVP for the most fun you can have this summer with ALL of your clothes on!

Romantic Date Night Idea

Whether you just met someone new or have been married for years, coming up with a unique date idea is not easy. Everyone goes on dinner dates, so instead try a creative date night idea— paint and drink together! You get to bring your own beverage (wine!) and snacks, so you can make it as romantic as you like. 

Grab a bottle of your favorite wine and maybe some cheese, strawberries, and chocolate; then join a couples painting class. Each person gets to paint one half of the painting, so when you hang your two canvases together it forms one big work of art. Valentine's Day falls on a Thursday this year, so we're celebrating all weekend long with several couples painting classes. 

If you want to try this unique date idea, then take a look at our Calendar and save your seats today because we are expecting sold out classes!

Holiday Party Idea for Friends & Family

Have you heard the top 6 reasons why Painting with a Twist in Hoover is the best holiday party idea for friends and family?

 

1. You get to bring your own food and drinks, so your painting party could double as a cookie exchange, holiday potluck, or wine tasting! Asking guests to bring food or drinks saves you money.

2. We clean up the mess, so you don’t have to!

3. We'll manage all of your guests' reservations online, so there's no stress about keeping track of RSVPs or money.

4. Painting is fun for ages 5 to 105. Tell your guests the party theme is ugly holiday sweaters, “naughty or nice”, or holiday pajamas; then watch the memories unfold!

5. Don’t worry about meeting private party minimums or paying deposits. Simply invite your party to a public class. Then you’ll have even more fun people at your party!

6. If you host a private party, you'll get to pick your party’s painting. If you leave your party open to the public, you may still be able to pick the painting, depending on what we have already booked on your party date.

 

We look forward to helping you host the most memorable holiday party of the season!
