THE WOODLANDS, Texas—“A jug of wine, and thou.” Thou can be your significant other, your BFF (Best Friend Forever), or the neighborhood block party group. At Pinot’s Palette you can paint the town red with whomever you please, while sipping your favorite ‘fruit of the vine.’ The latest rage for a date night, a ‘girls’ night out’ party, or a company team-building event, people who paint together are more likely to…well, have fun together.
Pinot’s Palette, an interactive painting studio for group sessions, differentiates itself with an upscale setting, and numerous custom service nuances. Owners Alana and Gene Padgett have leveraged eight years in event planning to provide more than an art lesson…it’s an event!
The grand opening this weekend will take place in their spacious 2800 sq. ft. facility which can accommodate 48 painters. A beautifully decorated 700 sq. ft. private room is available for birthdays, bachelorette parties, anniversaries, family reunions, and corporate events. Private parties can choose from a portfolio of over 300 paintings or request something special that one of their six artists will paint and prepare for the private party to replicate.
You don’t have to be a Rembrandt to try your hand at paint on canvas. Their skilled artists will guide you step-by-step, through the painting du jour - the featured piece for the evening. The session is a ‘make-it–and-take-it’ so you leave with your masterpiece.
“Our objective is to put a paintbrush in everybody’s hand,” said Alana Padgett. Having a liquor license enables them to put a wine glass in the other hand. Yes, they’re licensed to sell the vino at Pinot’s. If wine is not your beverage of choice, they also have beer. The guys can have their male-bonding session with their favorite brew; kind of a ‘buds with suds’ evening.
“It doesn’t necessarily require imbibing to paint well,” said Padgett, “But those who participated in the private preview event last weekend, said it did tend to lessen their inhibitions, making for a more enjoyable painting experience.” At the very least, you won’t care how bad your painting turns out.
