What’s up ATL? There is nothing better than combining things you like, into one event. For me those three things include: wine, a great group of friends and painting. In Atlanta, there is no shortage of Paint n Sips, Sip n Strokes or Dip ‘n Dabs.
After going through a divorce, I decided to branch out of my comfort zone & really live life. What better way to do that than to learn something new? I’ve always wanted to learn how to paint, so I decided to take an oil painting class at a local college. Atlanta, I am absolutely hooked! I have been painting for 6 months now, and it has been the most relaxing & peaceful hobby, outside of meditation & yoga. Here’s a couple of my 1st paintings (don’t you dare laugh, I’m trusting you Atlanta) In a year or two I think I may be alright. 🙂
So with that Atlanta, I want you to grab some friends (or show up & meet new friends), your favorite wine, cheese & fruit and head to a Paint n Sip near you! There are several creative studios in the metro area and I’m going to list some of my favorite ones for you. Happy Sipping ‘n Painting!
