Painting with a Twist FAQ
Commonly Asked Questions
What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist is fun art, not fine art. You don't need to be Van Gogh or Frida Kahlo to enjoy our events! It can be a pARTy or a carefree escape. It's about unplugging, relaxing, having fun, and hanging out with your friends and loved ones! In our events, we use non-toxic paints on canvas or wood and our super fun artist will walk you through creating a painting that's all your own! Along the way, you'll laugh, sip your favorite beverage, play some games, and unwind with your best peeps by your side. Most of our guests have no painting experience — just a passion for fun!
