Local to me we have Art Bash Studio.
Sign up for the (class) art piece of choice, gather as a group-come together or all strangers, drink sangria, paint along with instructor, no skill level needed/required.
A few weeks ago I caught wind of an event to get local ladies together for a meet & greet while painting & drinking.
I signed up hoping to meet new people and to try out the painting.
I really like the Peacock piece that they were attending.
I have never painted on a canvas like this, as a child I drew and drew well into my teens but that's it, nothing out of me in 20 years.
So here ya go, inspirational piece on left & my version is on the right side.
