Winter is here, and that means indoor activities. Why not channel your inner artist? Plenty of options exist for artistic expression. Here are a few:
Wine and Canvas:Wine and Canvas is a mobile business that brings the party to your favorite venues, corporate events, or living room! And of course, wine is a part of the experience and creative process. Artists instruct customers with step-by-step through re-creating the featured painting of the day. At the end of the event, you’ll take home a work of art that you created. The price is $35. Be sure to check their calendar for venue details. Current venue locations include Biaggi’s, Naked Tchopstix, The Factory and Parkview Field, with new venues coming soon. The calendar is released on the 20th of each month.
Bisque It: Located off of Coldwater Road, this studio has a wide selection of items. From vases to figures to piggy banks, they have it all! Items range from functional to just plain fun. The studio fee is $5 for the first piece and$3 for each additional one. (The studio fee is in addition to the price of the piece of pottery.) Be sure to check out their various classes. Note: The piece can take seven to ten days to be fired, depending on the current demand. You might need to make arrangements for pick-up.
