What is Painting with a Twist?
We are an absolutely fabulous new fun night out and we're thrilled to be here in Daytona Beach! We combine having a good time with friends with painting and at the end of the night you'll come home with a finished product you can be proud to say that you've created yourself! You can sip your favorite wine or beverage and paint a picture along with a local artist. We'll show you step-by-step how to paint a beautiful work of art that you will take home at the end of the event.
Our mission is to offer you an absolutely fantastic time with your friends and will help debunk the idea that you can't paint once and for all! Painting With A Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! We use acrylic paints on 12"x12", 11" x 14", 10"x30", 16"x20" canvases, shiplap/specialty MDF shaped boards, glass and real pine wood boards in a variety of sizes. We provide everything you'll need to take part in a painting event, all that's missing is you. Almost 90% of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!
What are you doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
We offer ZOOM events as well as in-studio events. For our in-studio events we use socially distanced seating so all of you belongings, snacks and drinks are kept near your seat. We sanitize all counters, door handles, bathrooms paintbrushes and easels after each event. Per our local government regulations we have reduced our maixumum room capacity and require everyone to wear a mask. In addition to LIVE Virtual ZOOM classes and in-studio events we also offer TWIST at HOME! With Twist at Home you pick up a packaged kit of necessary materials from the studio, which wil also include written directions, so you can paint one of our paintings wherever you want.
