Wine and painting classes are one of the latest trends to hit Kansas City. They are a fun way to celebrate a birthday, bachelorette party, corporate teambuilding, baby showers, girls’ night out, date night, or just an excuse to release your creative side. There are few wine and paint studios throughout Kansas City, which makes it easy to find one that’s near you.
Several of the studio's listed offer alcohol at the event, but not all of them. If you don’t have to bring alcohol, the only other things you should be prepared to bring to a wine and painting class is close that you don’t mind getting paint on and a sense of creativity and humor in order to make your painting the best it can be. Most classes range from $35-$40 per person, which includes the canvas and all painting supplies. Most classes take about two hours.
Most paint classes are catered towards beginners, but a few studios do offer classes that are geared towards intermediate painters. That being said it’s not imperative to have any artistic ability in order to have a fun time at the class.
