Sketch and Sip

It’s this cute painting studio in the Winthrop Plaza (Bloomingdale Ave. & Providence Rd.) where each night an instructor teaches a class of about 30 or less how to paint a specific picture step by step. It’s between $30-$45 for a class which includes the canvas and all the painting supplies. Wednesday nights it’s only $15 to paint a wine glass. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks and drinks to enjoy the class in a laid back atmosphere.

I went to a class last Tuesday for the second time to paint a peacock . Although it seemed challenging the teacher went through it step by step and it was so much fun. I also brought a bottle of ice wine I got for $15 from The Rolling Pin. I didn’t bother to take notes since I was too busy painting but it was quite tasty. The brand was The Stump Jump and it was a 2010 vintage. It was a blend of Chadonnay, Riesling, Semillon and Pinot Gris. It reminded me of the Samos wine from Tarpon Springs with a honey flavor but not as strong, so I liked it better since I don’t really like honey. Great desert wine and perfect for the class.
