A Helpful Guide to Sip & Paint Events

You May Get Messy

When you combine paint and wine, you’re almost guaranteed to make a bit of a mess. Always assume that paint could end up on your outfit and plan accordingly. Depending on the type of paint your event will use, it may be hard to remove once dry. To avoid issues and paint worry-free, wear old clothing and shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty.

Creativity Is Encouraged

sip and paintEvery sip and paint class is led by an instructor. They’re there to provide a template, guide attendees through the painting process, and give tips and advice when required. However, you don’t have to follow their instructions to a tee. If you’re feeling creative or adventurous, try using different colors, altering details, or painting an entirely different subject. The time and canvas are yours, so make the most of your session.

No Experience Required

Whether you’re a career artist or haven’t lifted a paintbrush since elementary school, sip and paint events are open to all. Many individuals new to this activity can get a little self-conscious about displaying their artistic abilities in front of others, but these are judgment-free zones. There may be a few professionals joining your session, but most people are inexperienced. The most important thing to remember is that everyone is there to relax and have fun.
