5 Chances to Drink and Create Art this weekend in the Hudson Valley
I will admit I am one of those people with "art envy" and by that, I mean I wish I was more artistic. I can do the basics - stick people, color in the lines, those kinds of things. But when it comes to creating my own design, I definitely need some help.
The funny part about my lack of artistic talent is that there are a number of painters in my family. Over the years, I have watched and learned. I actually have really good color sense, but again when you get back down to design and the creative part, I draw a blank. I think that is why when the world of painting met up with the world of wine, I was all in.
Adult Arts and Crafts Events this Weekend in the Hudson Valley
The Sip & Paint is the perfect place for those of us that are social and have the art bug. You gather some friends, head out to someplace fun, and enjoy becoming the artist you knew you could be with a bit of help. If nothing else, you end up with wall art and a great night out.
Sip & Paints have even branched out these days to include other things like pottery and pot. Now that the pandemic is slowly retreating into the rearview mirror, there are more paint & sip events popping on the calendar. Check out the list I found for this weekend.
