This is an evening event, where you will get to relax and enjoy painting an 18-inch Christmas Sled, with your choice of three designs! The host says your creation will be “Perfect for the front porch or by the fireplace as part of your Christmas Home Decor.”
Tickets are $45 and include all of the supplies you will need — An 18-inch, pre-traced, assembled sled, step-by-step instructions, and your first drink! There will also be door prizes and a giveaway.
Sarah with “Paint and Create with Sarah” added, “Beginner painters are welcome, and encouraged! This is FUN art!”
Feel free to arrive early and eat ahead of time at The Cork Room restaurant or you are welcome to order food from the bar menu and eat as you paint.
