Not long ago we were given the opportunity to try out Painting with a Twist up in West Seneca, NY. This is located just south of Buffalo in a cute little suburb that is flourishing with businesses. Painting with a Twist is a rapidly growing company across the nation. It offers multiple class settings for all ages that require little to no experience in art. I do not have an artistic bone in my body but I was willing to give this a try. We went online to their website and picked a date with a painting we really wanted to do. Since it was close to Halloween we were eager to pain the twisted haunted tree with a moon in the background. Why was I willing? Because wine was involved. That’s just one of the perks of Painting with a Twist; you can bring your own beverage and snacks. So my husband and I grabbed our favorite bottle of wine, a few snacks and headed on a short drive to the north of us. When we arrived at Painting with a Twist we were greeted by 3 friendly women. They were our instructors for the evening. They showed us around the studio explaining where to find our aprons, showed us the fun interactive paintings, explained how the instructor stage and TV monitors worked and assured us we had nothing to worry about. Just pick a seat and get ready to have fun. After another 20 or more people joined the class we quickly got started. The instructor quickly explained the piece we would all be painting but told us to have fun with it. Put our own “twist” into it. This is not a paint by numbers class, it’s a have fun, drink your wine and paint class! She showed us the different brushes we would be using and effortlessly showed us how to use them. Step by step she explained the process of each stroke, each color combination, blending and more. This was so easy; Alex and I couldn’t believe we were actually painting something. Let alone something that we could hang on our walls at home. The atmosphere was light, hilarious (our surrounding artists were quick witted and had a great sense of humor). All in all it was a fun and adult atmosphere. Painting with a Twist West Seneca, NY offers classes for adults, kids, parties, ladies night out or a unique date night. A fantastic place for all ages. I highly suggest this as a #WNYHotspot and a must visit!
