At the Pinot's Palette in Fairfax, all you have to bring is yourself and an open mind. The art studio has everything else covered, including beer and wine by the glass, the paints and canvas, and your apron and easel. So when you want to enjoy a unique night out with friends, find a class that looks interesting and simply sign up online.
Show up to class a few minutes early to grab a drink, grab a seat, and get settled. Then your seasoned art instructor will show you how to recreate that evening's masterpiece. The nightly muses range from a portrait of an elephant to a landscape illuminated by the Northern Lights. Even if you haven't picked up a paintbrush in a while, you should have no trouble keeping up with the simple instructions. Classes typically cost $35 per person and start at 7 p.m.
