Friends and Family Holiday Parties


If you need a holiday party activity that will entertain adults and kids at the same time, this is it!

Your painting party can be as family-friendly or adults-only as you want. Bring whatever you want

to eat and wine and soft drinks (we have a variety of adult beverages for sale, too.) — you could do

a potluck, Christmas cookies, or eggnog and hot chocolate. The host gets to choose whether everyone

paints holiday art or everyday art; but either way, everyone will leave this party with their own

keepsake (a custom painting!)

Creative Holiday Parties!

Host the holiday party everyone will be talking about for weeks before AND after the party! 

In addition to the paint and sip fun, you could incorporate a white elephant gift exchange, cookie contest,

ugly Christmas sweater contest, "naughty or nice" theme, holiday music, door prizes, or ask us in advance

what holiday games or trivia we could play. You could B.Y.O. wine, eggnog, warm apple cider, or hot mulled

wine and party platters. The party host also gets to choose whether everyone paints holiday art or everyday

art, so everyone leaves with a gift!

Spring Break Staycation Ideas

Whether you're staying in town or have guests coming to visit you over Spring Break, we have classes that will entertain everyone. April is quickly coming up, so we have a full lineup of classes designed for the whole family— young kids, college kids, and any adult who just wants to have a fun staycation. 

Spring Break Fun with Family & Friends

Our Family Friendly classes are in the mornings and afternoons, so you can create an easy painting in an alcohol-free environment with your kids as young as 7.  These are easy paintings, and some are discounted to $25 per person so the whole family can paint together.  Or, if your college kids are home for the week, bring them to our 16+ or 18 and older evening classes. And if they're over 21, you can both enjoy our bar or BYOW*!

Whatever your situation, we'll help you create lasting family memories with art you'll cherish forever. Browse through our paintings on our Calendar and book your next great family event.

Romantic Date Night Idea

Whether you're just dating, in a relationship, or married, it's not always easy to come up with a unique Valentine’s Day idea, but we've got one for you: Bring or buy a bottle of wine and your favorite snacks, and join one of our painting classes! During the class, you should "accidentally" paint on the back of your honey's hand and see how he/she reacts!

Valentine's 2019

We have several couples paintings in February, but you can turn any of our classes into a fun date night. Be sure to RSVP for your paintings today because we tend to sell out around Valentine’s Day!

Team Building is a Hidden Treasure at the Twist!

The Case for Team Building

Painting with a Twist is a unique idea for team building exercises.  Our fun, step-by-step

painting classes offer a way for teams to come together outside of the office and create

more than just art.  We create lasting memories and connections.  Those who have never

painted before instantly bond with others that are new to art, and more times than not, at

least one team member has painted before and quickly jumps in to help and encourage

others on the team.  

Team Building

We love seeing how a team building event begins with a room full of nervous, quiet people only

to end with a group that is boisterous and full of happy chatter about their paintings.  Painting as

a team building activity is a creative way to get teams talking, sharing life experiences, and bring

people out of their shells, so put a new twist on your next team building event, and consider

Painting with a Twist.  We’re fun art, not fine art!

Start the New Year off right with a Team Building Event at Painting with a Twist of Shelby.  We

can accommodate up to 110 guests!

Entering the Grey Season: Home Decor Trends - Hand Painted Art

By the time January roles around, everything takes on that blah winter grey color.

But, lucky for you, we can add a splash of color to your decor with personally, 

Hand Painted pieces.  

Splash of Color

When choosing a project, you may ask yourself if you're looking for a seasonal 

piece that you will swap out as the seasons change or something that can be

displayed for months at a time.  Another question is whether the project you

choose will fit your decor or if it will merely add that pop of color to create

a focal point on your wall, mantle or table.  No matter where you put your

personally made masterpiece, it will surely be a focal point and great conversation

piece that you can proudly display for family and friends to admire.


Although you can find countless items at the store or online to compliment your

home decor, nothing is quite as fun and memorable as handpainting the perfect

piece for yourself.  Check out our calendar to find the perfect piece for you and

start decorating today.

Wine Before Bed...

Here's a diet plan I could wrap my head around!

According to scientists from Washington State and Harvard, a glass of vino...or two,

before bed can help with weight loss.  That's the claim, and who am I to dispute it?

Check out the story here: Wine Weight Loss Plan

Oh, btw, you're welcome. :)
