Art and wine — a happy combination. Now local entrepreneurs Tovah and Chris Mitchell bring that combination to Germantown, as they launch Painting with a Twist at 3116 Village Shops Drive.
With a grand opening scheduled for Thursday, June 16th, the husband-wife team see the area's first "art and social studio" as a way to stimulate visitors' creative side while sipping wine and engaging with friends. At the shop, which is part of a growing national franchise based in Mandeville, Louisiana, guests will paint on 16-inch-by-20-inch canvases. With guidance from local art instructors during a two- to three-hour class, aspiring painters will recreate an existing painting adding their own special touch to a piece they will take home that day. While the studio provides paint and brushes, visitors bring their own wine or beverage of choice.
Regular classes are for ages 15 and up. Spaces can be reserved online on evenings that fit guests' schedules. The studio also offers private parties for corporate outings, date nights, or other special events. It can accommodate up to 42 people per gathering.
Tovah Mitchell sees Painting with a Twist-Germantown as "lighthearted entertainment where friends come together to create memorable pieces of artwork." For more information call 901-759-1333 or go towww.paintingwithatwist.com.
