Painting with a Twist - Orlando, FL
Recently my husband and I joined another couple for a date night. I have heard about this place from a few others and thought let's give it a try. The funny thing is that none of us have paint or do anything creative, but I thought how bad can it be and we should give it a try. I went on the Painting with a Twist's website and perused through the calendar to see what types of paintings were on the horizon.
They have 2 different types of classes "singles" which means that everyone paints the same picture and "couples" where each of you paint a canvas that when put together forms a large cohesive painting. The cool thing is that the "couples" paintings can also stand on their own so you don't have to live together to take that class. Upon searching I found a couples class that had a beach scene that looked like it could be an easy task for a few artistic beginners.
The class was about 3 hours long and the instructor was great. You get all of the paint, canvas and utensils to create your work of art as well as a smock to wear to cover your clothes. During your painting they have a bar that sells wine and beer to get you in the creative mindset. The 2 hour classes are $35/per person and the 3 hour are $45/per person. It seems a little pricey, but dinner can cost just about that much and you have nothing to hang out your walls to remind you about the experience at a later date.

Here is a group picture from everyone that participated that night
I highly recommend trying this place out with either your spouse, girls night out, they even have kids classes. They also have a private room for parties. Regular classes are 15 and up. Kids' and family classes are 7 and up.
