In spite of Mr Roads, my 7th grade art teacher, I was prompted last fall to buy a daily deal for a partner session in an art studio.
Husband and I finally used it just days before it expired. We left the kids with my parents and headed to one of my favorite Colorado towns, Golden.
Date night was held at Art on the Brix where we received, for our entry fee, art supplies and instruction, a cup of wine each and tapas, which is a fanchy-schmancy word for light snacks. We also had the chance to buy one more cup of wine as we painted, as you may notice below.
This was our night in a slideshow.
Now we have two paintings of the same thing. Luckily, each kid wanted one to hang in their rooms.
Who knew I could even remotely do this? I love vanquishing the voice of Mr Roads almost as much as I enjoy sipping house Cabernet with my husband. A really fun evening, complete with a visual memory that makes me smile.
