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!


Attending a Painting and Vino event is relaxing fun. You get to meet new people who share a common interest for the night. We get a little silly, we create a fun project, we eat great food that we don’t have to cook, and we get to enjoy our favorite beverage. What more could you ask for during a work week?

Painting or working crafty projects is therapeutic, and there are numerous studies showing that creative projects reduce your stress level and help to improve brain functions. Having to go 5-6 days before having a few hours of relaxing fun is way too long! A mid-week break is just what the doctor ordered. You go home with a full belly, a quenched thirst, and a piece of art you did yourself!

But most of all, you’ll be relaxed!
