Vino Van Gogh- February 19, 2023
5:30-7:30 pm

Vino Van Gogh has become super popular in years past, but if you’ve never been to paint night before, you may find yourself wondering what the heck it is. Sure, you’ve seen the photos on Facebook of all your friends holding up identical paintings, clutching wine glasses in their hands, but you’ve probably asked yourself, first, why didn’t I get invited? And also, what are they doing? Even if you think you know what paint night is about. Come let your creative side shine painting, and having a glass of wine (or beer)! Our teacher/artist Andrea Enderle is a local artist that will teach the way of basic painting technique and create a masterpiece worthy of hanging above the fireplace.

 

Painting Theme:  “Winter Blooming into Spring”
