Fall Painting at Painting With a Twist
100 Tall Pines Ave, Ste 5, Longview, TX 75605
Option 1: Painting Pumpkins and Cotton
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm Ages 12 + Kid Friendly
No Alcohol Is Allowed at 12+ Events
Option 2: Painting Subject of Choice
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm Adult Private Party of 10 or More
Bring Wine and Beer With Cups and Ice
Painting With a Twist is a painting studio with artists on duty to instruct groups of people with little to no experience in art to complete a painting throughout a one to three-hour class. Painting is a popular activity because adults 21 and over can bring wine or beer and enjoy it during their painting session, thanks to Texas BYOB laws. People may also bring light snacks so long as they keep in mind that they will be engaged in painting with a brush in hand for the majority of the time. Children are welcome at 5+ and 12+ marked events, and for those sessions, no alcohol is allowed. If an event is marked 15+, event-goers over 15 may attend with a parent or guardian. The only thing you may want to keep in mind is that every person who attends must have a paid seat, so if your partner or friend doesn’t want to paint, they still have to pay for the full price ticket anyway. Events are scheduled all season long.
