Painting With A Twist...Here's The Twist, You Get Buzzed
A group of fabulous ladies, myself included (obviously) went to Painting With A Twist for a friend's 65th birthday celebration. I was excited, but also a tad apprehensive because my artistic abilities can only be described as Pollock on horse tranquilizers. I just don't have the painting (or drawing, or coloring, or sculpting, or even play-doh) gift. In fact, the day before the painting party I was on the internets and saw a funny article dedicated to the people who failed (I called it winning) at these parties. Most of the pictures involved paintings of large dicks. In other words, hilarious. I guess us adults are still 12 year old giggling assholes at heart.
So we get there and our instructor is CRAZY and hyper as hell. Think Richard Simmons snorting an 8-ball before sweating to the oldies, hyper. We might as well have been at a local stand up comedy club. She had a pretty dirty sense of humor (which was great) and talked A LOT (which was decidedly NOT great). Maybe I'm being a bit of a turd, but I just wanted to get down to business and paint. Eventually the lesson started and it was actually much easier to do than I thought it would be.
Ol' Crazy Pants guided us through the lesson as we sipped wine and laughed. I managed to get my painting in my best friend's hair about 10 minutes in. The red streaks were sort of cool looking though. It could have been much worse, that's for sure. Anyway... some members of the group swore at their paintings. One tried to give up entirely because it wasn't perfect enough. And a few took their time and probably didn't perfect their paintings until they got home.
In the end, all the art looked extremely similar AND completely different at the same time. We all laughed a ton and personally, I found the painting to be very soothing once I sort of knew what I was doing. In short, I would totally recommend Painting With A Twist to anyone, especially those that like to get a little crafty. Craft on, yo!
