I heard about Paint & Groove from a colleague who had attended one of the painting parties for a friend’s birthday. I was immediately intrigued as a former art student (good at drawing terrible at painting, lol) and generally someone who likes to try something different.
What is Paint & Groove? It’s a painting party at which for a fee, you are provided with a canvas, paint brushes, paint and smocks and depending on the cost, snacks and drinks are included. The instructor, Yasmin Vizcarrondo, brings a painting which she has already painted and shows you step by step how to recreate it.
Sounds difficult? Nahhh, it’s so much fun! No experience necessary! Yasmin literally takes you from the beginning to the end of the painting by taking you through the brushstrokes, how to mix the paints, going from the base, outlining and filling of the particular theme.
It is simply an evening to have fun with friends, eat, drink some wine and listen to music. The best part of it all is that you have created your own piece of art which is all yours and it’s great to see the different interpretations of the paintings.
