We here at New to Palm Beach do our best to support local businesses and to find interesting things to do and share with our audience. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably already participated in, or at least seen a ‘Paint and Sip’ event.
These events charge a small fee so that you can follow along the instructions of a professional artist and create your own painting. While there are several of these establishments in Palm Beach County, one of our favorites is UpTown Art right here in West Palm Beach (now also open in Boca and Jupiter).
The way it work is you visit their website to see their events calendar and decide which painting you want to paint: Click Here for Events Calendar. Click through, register and make payment, usually about $35. On the day of the event, arrive about 15 minutes early so you can get a good seat, grab your smock and plate of paints and your ready to go!
The class is always fun and the teachers are highly competent and easy going. The going gets easier as everyone is invited to bring their own choice of drink and snacks.
The best part is that whether you are a novice or an advanced painter you’ll come away with something you’ll be proud to hand up in your home. I’ve been there 5 times now, and my personal collection is starting to grow. I’ve received tons of compliments on my paintings, and prior to these classes I never painted on canvas before!
Not only does it make for a great date, but they have private rooms for birthday parties or groups for just about any occasion. So, what are you waiting for, go feed your inner Picasso and then post your master piece on our Facebook Page. For more information contact UpTown Art at: 561.899.3980
