A wine glass and a paint brush...

Last night I took my friend Steph to one of my favorite places in Cincinnati, Cheers to Art. This was my 4th visit and it did not disappoint. Cheers to Art combines two great hobbies...wine "tasting" and painting. You go and truly feel like an artist because the owner, Jill, teaches you how to paint a selected painting with step by step instructions. I knew when I saw the nest painting on the calendar a month ago that I just had to do sign up to paint it. I already have it hanging in my living room! Here are a few pictures from our date night.
 
A night of sipping wine and attempting to be an artist with your best friend makes for a wonderful evening. We had a great time and plan to make this a tradition every few months. On top of wine and painting they also have an adorable gift shop where I bought myself a new scarf. So really I left with 2 new things: a painting and a scarf. Win and win.
Here are the other paintings I've done at Cheers to Art...
First visit...Valentine's day date night
Second visit...Armleder girl's night out
Third visit...Armleder girls night out revisited

If you live in the Cincinnati area you should definitely go check them out!
Happy weekend!!!

I want to do this so badly! I wonder if there is something like this in Toronto. I am going to investigate. If not - I am on my way to Cincinnati to paint and drink wine with you.

Your painting turned out great!
Some SoCal bloggers did this recently, so maybe I'll have to try it once I'm stateside again.

You are so cute!! I haven't been to one of these yet, but I kinda just feel like I'd be wasting my money because I know that my painting would NOT be worthy of being hung up in the house. Haha!!
