I am always looking for fun activities to do with my kiddo. Since it is summer right now, it’s pretty hot, so I’ve been looking for indoor things to do! My daughter loves crafts, so when I learned about Painting with a Twist I knew it would be something she would love to do! Painting is such a great way to get creative energy out.
We attended our class on the perfect day. It was a sweltering 90 degrees outside. She was so excited for the painting we were going to learn to do- painting Dragons! This class was specifically a family class. It was amazing because each step was simple, relaxed, and fun! I love the unique theme- dragons! So cute!
When we stepped into the studio we were warmly welcomed by our lead artist! She asked us our names and if we’d ever been there before. She was super fun and set the class up to be a relaxed, casual, and exciting time! She encouraged all of us to just enjoy our time and step back if we ever needed a quick break! She even let my daughter name the “paintbrushes”! She named the smaller paintbrush Avery, after her little sister!
We both picked out a refreshment and a snack and settled into our seats to paint. I’ll admit, I was nervous my kiddo would get tired of painting or simply get frustrated, but she hung in there the entire time thanks to the amazing teaching of our lead artist! She kept us engaged and even had us get up to take breaks, dry our painting, do games and contests, and step back to look at our art! The class flew by and we had such a fun time!
I think the best part of attending Painting with a Twist was walking away with memories and a new canvas art that we created together. My daughter has been asking daily to go back and even wants to bring Daddy next time!
Her cute wall art hung up in her room!! 🙂
We will definitely be back to enjoy another painting session at our local painting with a twist!! It’s a great activity for people of all ages!! Find your nearest Painting with a Twist location and sign up for a fun class!
