Last week I attended a two hour acrylic painting class at Pinot’s Pallete in St. Matthews with my friend Brooke and her sister-in-law. They do classes almost every night and have a bar where you can buy beer, wine or mixed cocktails to sip on while you paint.
We painted an elephant and it was a lot of fun! I went in there anticipating a canvas with an outline of the elephant already there, but much to our surprise, we all sat down to a blank, white canvas. At first we were extremely intimidated, but our instructor was awesome and did a great job of showing us how to do the outline of the elephant ourselves. We started with a grid on the canvas and she instructed us where on the grid to place dots of paint and then which dots to connect until we had our basic outline.
It was a lot of fun and I definitely want to do it again soon!
