On the weekend, I and a group of friends spent a hugely fun afternoon at Paint & Pinot. In the 3 hour session a professional artist takes you through a painting class (we all paint the same thing) – but it is a fun, social event, with a bar (hence the pinot) and food menu.
No experience or skill required (thank goodness!). For our session we were painting a llama (although I have christened mine Alfie the Alpaca). There were a few examples around the room:
It was a little nerve-wracking for the first few minutes, but after that I got into the swing of it and enjoyed myself immensely. Huge fun!
My finished painting may not be perfect, but I have hung him on a wall in the house.
All in all, I had a blast and would happily do this again. Have you done anything like this before? Would you?
