One of the hottest new trends in entertainment is drinking wine (or other spirits) while painting an original work of art. With talented and lively artists leading the way, even the most unartistic will feel like Picasso by the end of a paint-and-sip event. With the growth of this entertaining trend, more and more of these vibrant workshops are opening up around Arkansas. Here are a few of the greatest places in Arkansas to paint and drink this 2024!
This trendsetting franchise began in 2007 as Corks & Canvas in Mandeville, Louisiana, soon changing its name to Painting With a Twist in 2009.

Classes are also available in Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Little Rock, and North Little Rock.

You’ll be a “DIY master” by the end of this paint and drink event!
