If you like art and wine, Colors & Bottles, Inc. will help you partake in both with local painting parties! Colors & Bottles, Inc., hosts painting events at various locations around the city, such as bars, wine cellars, galleries, restaurants, and more. Each class is 3 hours long and will be taught by a local artist. Many events are “Bring Your Own Wine”, cost $36 per person, and include a blank 16”x20” canvas, easel, 6 basic colors of acrylic paint, brushes, and everything you need to create a masterpiece. Through Sunday, you can purchase a Groupon for a Colors & Bottles event for just $18! Click here to check out the offer details and purchase! Colors & Bottles will be featured on the Ellen Degeneres show on Friday, September 23, 2011, so this Groupon is likely to sell out!
The classes can accommodate ALL skill levels. The artist will provide step-by-step instructions for creating the featured painting – or you can choose to paint anything that you wish! After class you can take your work of art home to display proudly! This would be a great “girls day/night” or party idea! $1 from all ticket sales will go directly to the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute to benefit cancer research.
Colors & Bottles will be hosting a Painting in the Park event on Sunday, September 25, 2011, from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Columbus Commons in Downtown Columbus. The event will be at the tables by the carousel, and in the event of rain, will be moved to the covered walkway to the east of the Ohio Theater. Due to the pesky open container law, this is a no alcohol event. Other upcoming events include Bar Louie, Wyandotte Winery, and ROY G. BIV gallery. Events that are held at places that serve alcohol won’t be BYOB, but drink specials will be available.
