Paint and Sip in the Adirondacks

Usually I keep my art and my wine as separate events, but now there are plenty of opportunities for me to get my creative juices flowing paired with a glass of fine wine. In the Adirondacks and just outside the Blue Line there are various art organizations and dedicated businesses that encouraging all of us to dig deep for our inner artist and bring her/him along to an evening of "Paint and Sip."

Combining painting a canvas among a group of friends with the commoraderie that comes with a few glasses of wine has no definitive history, but one southern artist,Wendy LoVoy, started offering an art instruction class  in 2004 which has now evolved into the Birmingham, Alabama home of Sips n Strokes, Inc. Since that time other companies have franchised spreading the good fun across the nation.  One such company, Painting with a Twist, formed its earliest roots during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Formerly called Corks and Canvas, Painting with a Twist has built an empire out a simple concept.

Now in the Adirondacks and beyond there are various locations and events geared toward drawing out the artist within... with a little wine.
