This past month we attended a Sunday class at the East Longmeadow Painting with a Twist and we found that it was a wonderful experience. It was a great two hours of relaxing girl time in a quiet setting. The instructor was helpful, talented and up beat. The only thing i would change is the Welcome at the door. The gentleman wasn’t very friendly or inviting. Otherwise our time was enjoyable because of the instructor, the paint and canvas is excellent quality and it came out much better than i thought i could ever do with the help of the instructor. Check out what we did below!
Information on Painting with a Twist
“At Painting with a Twist, our guests come together to experience a unique ‘getaway’ that includes friends, paint and music (there is an option to drink alcohol). Led by local art instructors, guests paint on bare 16″ by 20” canvases using paint and brushes provided by the studio. There are more than 5,000 original pieces of copyrighted artwork, which have been conceptualized and produced by Painting with a Twist art instructors. Friends gather for an evening of laughs, creativity and camaraderie as they create one-of-a-kind pieces of art to take home and, often, discover a newfound talent. In addition to the scheduled classes, Painting with a Twist also offers private parties for team buildings, bachelorettes, bridal, corporate, birthdays, sororities etc. Painting with a Twist started from humble beginnings in 2007 when two enterprising women – Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney – started doing their part to rebuild their Hurricane Katrina-devastated community. From there it has grown to the biggest paint studio franchise with over 250 studios and counting and over 2 million customers. Painting with a Twist painting sessions are more than just a fun night out – it’s a hands-on, relaxing activity where our guests can connect on an emotional level. After creating their own beautiful paintings, guests feel like they have truly accomplished something and conquered any fears about art. It is a great place to connect creatively with your kids and be a kid yourself. We have over 1,000 kid friendly paintings that can challenge kids to be creative and appreciate art. We also put together kids camps where kids can immerse themselves into half a day sessions and learn about art, artists, paint mediums and come home with their own acrylic on canvas masterpieces. Our kid friendly classes are 1 1/2 hrs long and cost $25 per canvas.”
