Gift a fun-filled night to the art-lover in your life and take them to Painting with a Twist. Bring your own beverage and enjoy each stroke you paint as you sip, socialize, and create with step-by-step instruction from experienced artists. If you dare to go solo, buy their artwork kit that includes a paint surface, brushes, paints, and instructions so that you can create the masterpiece by yourself. Imagine the surprise on your family’s face when they unwrap the beautiful artwork and find out it was made by you! What a wonderful way to add sentimentality to a gift.
