What is a VinoPaint Creative event?
The VinoPaint experience is all about SMArt events! – Creative Social Meetings and ART where you can create your own masterpiece in a relaxed, stress-free group environment.
We often hear “I am not artistic”, or “I can’t even draw a stick figure”. Well, have no fear! This is the perfect event where absolutely NO experience is necessary to have a amazingly creative and positive time in any of our classes.
Our instructor, Sonya Paz is a professional artist that will guide our guests through the painting event with simple, step-by-step instructions. Perhaps you are an aspiring Frida Kahlo or Pablo Picasso just looking to explore your creative side and color outside the lines, you create a wonderful artwork that is personally “yours” that you created yourself.

VinoPaint events tend to book up quickly, so it is recommended that you register in advance to secure your space. We can accept walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis if we have space available. Be sure to always check the website for real time event status and it is always being updated with new dates and venues.
Do I have to paint the featured artwork?
Having you create the painting along with the rest of the guests is all part of the fun! Attendees help encourage others and cheer each other on – it makes the event more festive and keeps the positive vibe upbeat! We like to encourage our attendees to paint the featured painting, Most people sign up to paint the featured artwork, so our instructor’s number one priority will be guiding attendees with the featured painting. If you decide to paint your own theme or style, that’s fine, however please be respectful to your fellow artists as well as the instructor of the event.
What is the age requirement to participate?
Typically our creative events are open to ages 10 and over, but depending on the activity these ages can vary and some more intricate designs and art workshops maybe challenging.

Please feel free to contact us if you have a question or would like to plan a private event.
What should I wear?
Please dress appropriately. For live events we provide aprons to help protect your clothes to a degree, however we cannot be responsible for any clothing or accessories that might be blemished by a paint smudge or two. Please take this into consideration when you decide what to wear for our canvas painting sessions. if you are coming straight from work, just bring a change of clothes.
What kind of paint is used?
Every new artist must know that wearing your best outfit might not be suitable for this activity. In most cases we use non-toxic acrylic paints, and while these are water based paints, they are not entirely clothes friendly. We offer other types of classes and workshops and those paints and materials may be watercolor, chalk, sharpies etc. If you are sensitive to art materials, please contact us so we can address your questions.
Since our paint is non toxic, you may get some paint on your hands. In the event that you have sensitive skin or a nicely maintained manicure, we can provide plastic disposable gloves available upon request to protect your hands. The paint we use is non-toxic easily washable from skin and nails with soap and water.
Can I take my painting home the night of the event?
Yes, yes, yes!!! You take your painting home with you. We also want your masterpieces to arrive home safely. Acrylic paint dries rather quickly, however we do not want your newly created painting to leave paint smudges on the seats of your vehicle. We suggest bringing an old towel or plastic trash bag to protect your automobile.
