What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist (PWAT) is a fun art studio for anyone aged 7-107 who is interested in painting! In our classes we use acrylic paints on 16x20", 12x12" or 24x36" canvases, and also wood art projects! Our staff of professional artists will teach the scheduled artwork to the class step by step. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success and surprise themselves with not only how much fun it is, but that their art exceeded their expectations!
We are in the studio during office hours Wednesday - Friday 6-9 pm and Saturday 12-9 pm; and during all scheduled class times. Feel free to send us an email anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions or to check availability for the private studio and we will respond as soon as possible, at least within 24 hours!
