How’s about a holiday paint and sip? Make your own holiday creations at area art studios

0

The paint and sip industry seems to be going gangbusters all over the country. Paint and sip events can take place at bars and restaurants, or at classroom-like art studios. At the events, people pay a modest fee that covers the cost of art supplies and instructors and then, while sipping wine or other beverages, participants are walked through the process of producing a work of art. Everyone does their own version of the master painting, following the example of the instructor. Paint and sip sessions are a way for ordinary folks to loosen up, relax and enjoy making an art object that they can take home. Most participants claim to be “not artistic,” but the results are usually remarkably good.
Some of Tacoma’s paint and sip establishments are hosting holiday-themed sessions. I can’t think of anything that would be more delightful than spending a little holiday time at one of these artsy places, unwinding and creating a classically wintery painting that can forever after be part of one’s holiday décor.
Following is a holiday sampler of the local paint and sip studios where you can go to enjoy making a great work of art in the days ahead:
