Canvas & Cocktails

My daughter had her 24th birthday last week so for something different I took her to “Canvas & Cocktails”.  They have a location downtown in Cherry Creek. I signed us up for “Sangria Sunday”.  It’s a “how to” paint on canvas class.  The instructor goes through the painting step-by-step.  It was so much fun and because it was “Sangria Sunday” they give you a little glass of Sangria, but seriously there is NO time for drinking.  The class was full (at least 50) and there was a range of ages, a 10 year old (sitting by us) who was celebrating straight A’s, a woman in her 70’s celebrating her birthday and a group of girls that included the “bride to be”, even a few husbands that I’m sure were dragged there but they did a great job. You pay $35 for the class and you come home with a one of a kind painting because everyone’s is a bit different. Some people painted different background colors, some of their sunflowers were bigger some smaller, it’s all about tapping into your inner child and the freedom to use your imagination if you want to . . . Amie & I are a bit more “by the book” people, we prefer to color inside the lines (LOL).  We wanted ours to look exactly like the sample (the one behind us on the wall).  Maybe we’ll step “out of the box” a bit next time . . . or not! LOL
