Sometimes art leaves people puzzled, turning their head sideways, and flat-out asking, “What the heck is that?” That’s when you know it’s good stuff, right?
Wrong. That’s exactly why Eric Patrick took some cues from Painting with a Twist founders Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney and opened his own branch of the franchise in a town known for art.
Combining instructional studio time with friends, wine and a lively leader, Painting with a Twist makes it possible for the average Joe (or Jane) to come in, throw on a fedora and scarf, and get all artsy-fartsy with pals.
In fact, it's not even necessary to bring tools -- instructors have everything anyone needs to have a creative night on the town.
Painting with a Twist's charming studio, located right on Biscayne Boulevard
, is Patrick’s way of blending his business savvy with his love of art, using it to entertain anyone who has the urge to pick up a brush.
“The studio is designed to provide guests with a fun night out -- a chance to escape from reality while stimulating their creativity,” he says. “It’s lighthearted entertainment that merges creativity and a social gathering where friends come together to create memorable pieces of artwork.”
Stumped date nighters and budding Picassos can now try Painting with a Twist out for themselves free of charge: the studio is having an open house night Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m.
