Sip and Paint

Sip Sip Paint Paint

Sip and paint or Draw and Drink events have become very popular and are a great activity for girls or date nights. Unfortunately they can run you about 40 bucks per person and you only get one glass of wine!
A cheaper alternative would be places like Ceramics in the City here in Denver. Ceramics in the city is a walk-in shop that mostly geared toward ceramic painters. Although they don’t advertise it they have canvas painting as well as glass and ceramic paintings. Plus you get to bring in your own drinks. That’s what we’re talking about! It has a really a chill environment.
Be forewarned they don’t give you step by step instructions but they have easy to use tutorials.
For $26 they provide you the canvas, paints necessary and tips. They give you two books with the tutorials. One book holds paintings that will take you 1-2 hours and the other 2.5-3 hours. We think this is the best part because everyone gets to pick what they want to paint.
Once you’ve picked the painting you want to paint you trace the template in the tutorial using carbon paper on to the canvas. From there it’s a matter of following the directions about how and where to paint the picture.  It’s really not hard.
If you’re into arts and crafts they also let you have parties there but you’ll want to make a reservation just to make sure there’s enough tables.
Surely there are tons of places like this all over it’s just a matter of looking.

We’re not the best artists in the world but we think we did pretty well. Don’t you?
This is not a sponsored post BTW!
