Canvas & Cocktails

So this work life balance stuff is a lot harder than I anticipated.  By the time I get home I'm wiped out and finding time to blog has been a little more challenging than I'd like to admit. But here I am! I will NOT give up!

But trying to work on the "life" side of things, I wanted to mix up my weekend activities.  My friend Kara had showed me this place in Denver called "Canvas & Cocktails" a while back and thought it was high time I checked it out. After looking through their different canvases for the weekend, I made my decision! Sunday night painting the mountain lake canvas it was.

My friend Teale came along for the ride since she was also interested in what this place was all about. I mean drinking and painting.... what could be better?

You ask drinking and painting? Why yes! Basically you buy a canvas for $25-$35 and get paint, paint brushes, and a teacher.  The teacher stands up in front of the class and paints along with us telling us the step by step on how to paint the picture of the day. In between you get to listen to music, talk, and drink.  There is actually a bar in the shop! Teale and I each bought a bottle of wine and went to town on our artwork. Beautiful, right?

If you are ever in Denver, I would highly recommend it as something fun to try out! Clearly we had fun :)  What do you think of our paintings?

    What a fun night! The final product looks amazing! I only wish there was something like that around here.

  2. This sounds like so much fun. I took a painting class last year and the drinking part was what was missing! It probably would have made things a little more relaxed. Found your site for the first time tonight and I'm now following it!


Thank you for letting me know what you think!
