Five ladies came to the Painted Tree Studio for the first “Paint in Sip” this past week. The Painted Tree Studio is located at 825 Wren, down the street from the post office. Beer, wine or a soft drink were brought by each participant plus their enthusiasm and desire to complete an acrylic 16x20 painting in two hours.
A selection of paintings are on display at Nonie’s on the Square. From this selection, (which changes every 4-6 weeks), the ladies had selected a painting with yellow flowers. No art experience is required. All materials…apron, canvas, easel, brushes, paint, cup for paint water and another glass for your beverage are provided. The instructor, Bridget Langdale, guides you step by step in creating your painting.
It is a time with friends for FUN, DRINK, plus a time to complete a finished PAINTING.
Doris Grote, commented that “it was a social blast”.
Lorene Metz had “Fun. Fun. Fun!” Karen Scantlin was delighted, “I did it! I painted!” Bonnie Beam couldn’t wait to go home and show her husband John what she had accomplished.
Denise Brandenberger laughed and said….”who can’t paint….when you are painting and drinking?”
The group commented that they knew a lot of people who would have a blast coming together for such a fun time. They came up with date night, teachers, office workers, Christmas parties, book clubs, Sunday school classes, B&B guests who come to mason and find out it’s raining, hunters (in between morning and evening hunts), and perhaps YOU would like to give it a try. Flyers showing dates and times are at Nonie’s, Mane Attraction and Hinckleys. Nonie’s has paintings hanging on the wall so that you will know which painting you are signing for. Everyone paints the same scene or painting.
Set up a private party or call to discuss other days and times. Class size is 5-10, cost is $35 a person. Call Bridget at 325-805-1176 to make a reservation to PAINT & SIP!
