Importance of Giggles

Being able to laugh at yourself and others, in a positive way, is one of the many benefits of experiencing our classes. We spend so much time taking everything so seriously and being so hard on ourselves. Why not try out a paint night and have fun with it. Who cares if it's a stellar painting you can hang in a gallery. The idea is to enjoy it as an activity and soak up the light heartedness of the process. Our classes are affordable enough that you can toss the canvas if you really don't like it. Try again another day if you really need the wall art. Written by Nick LeGuern, Orange County artist/instructor: September 19, 2018Had a Fun evening with these folks at Chapter One restaurant and Bar, in Santa Ana last evening.The blond girl, Courtney, very intuitive artist I thought, had the giggles encouraged by th

Paint and Sip for Relaxation

OK, who’s with me…you work all week, take care of the house and the kids, run here, and run there, blah, blah, blah. Then the weekend comes and you envision relaxation but noooooooo…there are chores, family outings, sports games, more running here and there and, well, you know the rest.

Here is my point…You don’t have to save relaxation and date nights for Fridays and Saturdays. Sometimes, a night off during the week is some of the best therapy, especially when it’s creative and fun.

Coming out to dinner on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night can sometimes be what the doctor ordered for a nice mid-week break. Doing something creative even makes it better for your stress level and your brain! Getting out during the work week, and attending a paint and sip event, gives you and your kitchen a night off!

There Are No Mistakes in ART!

Painting, drawing, music…it doesn’t matter what the art form is. What many have considered to be “mistakes,” in the past, have turned out to be the artist’s “style.” And this goes for all forms of art.  For the purpose of this posting though, I will be referring to painting and drawing.

Art is like anything else in this world that you’ve had limited experience with. Ok, here it comes, Grandma’s old saying, “Practice makes perfect.” Well, my Friend, it does. Especially when it comes to something that you enjoy doing. Besides, as you are “practicing,” who says you have to paint for anyone but yourself? Start simple! Grab a glass of wine, and grab a coffee cup, and draw or paint it until you like the resul

How to create a Pet Portrait that doesn't suck

Have you ever thought of yourself as a portrait painter? Probably not, as painting portraits lend itself to old masters, back in the days of the kings and queens with Leonardo Da Vinci or Michelangelo at the helm. Portrait painting takes years and years of study. So how the heck do you paint your pet’s portrait and it doesn’t look like a cartoon rendition?

Painting for the fun of it

We like to think of Paint & Sip classes as the new alternative to sports watching at a bar. Not that we don't love sports, but painting seems to open up a whole new way for people to socialize in a public setting. Going out to eat is fun but why not have a little more social time enjoying food and drinks with your friends while you create something you can take home and keep longer than your leftovers.

Our events are meant to be lighthearted and fun. Painting in itself is a learned skill but if you let go of t

Painting - even at 90

Yes our events are for ages 21+ BUT the age has no limits. We were blessed with a great group of guests to a recent painting event, in particular a 90 year old lady with her family. Art is such a great activity since it's mentally stimulating and does wonders for eye/hand coordination. 

“Another great night for canvas painting at Oak+Elixir in Carlsbad. And this lovely lady in the middle is 90 years old! She joined her daughters to have a fun night out, celebrating a daughters birthday. Just goes to show...it doesn’t matter how old you are...fun, creativity, socializing, a glass of wine, making n

I get so excited before an event when I am traveling to the venue! Painting is definitely my passion and that passion includes bringing out other people's creativity... especially those who say that they have never painted before.  I tell everyone attending a class to leave the world behind... have fun, relax and enjoy! It is so fun when each person goes away with a creation that they can be proud of. There is no such thing as a bad painting!
