A bunch of us girls from work had a private party and had a blast. We were able to bring in appetizers and wine which made it festive. Our instructor Esther was very fun and helpful. I actually hung my painting and my husband was surprised at how nice it turned out. I would do it again.

My girlfriend and I went to a couples class on Valentine's day..While I can maybe draw a stick figure, I was shocked to see how well our painting turned out. The instructor was awesome in walking you through how to do everything, the atmosphere was fun / engaging, and we can't wait to do it again.

Myself, daughter, in-laws sisters and friends all enjoyed painting on Mother's Day of last year. They had a 2 part picture that you needed a partner to complete the pic and we had a ball. I don't indulge in wine but you are allowed to bring in your beverages and finger food which makes for a nice party. They help... More

I have enjoyed three different activities at Painting with a Twist. Two different private group activities and one 'mom and me' at their mother's day event. All three times everyone had a great time. It is a bit expensive ($50 per person ?) but you leave with your very own master piece. Don't forget to bring your favorite beverage and... More

Such a fun experience - great to do with girlfriends. I've attended both a charity event and an individual event with my mom and sister. It's fun that they let you BYOW (bring your own wine). Although I don't consider myself very skilled with painting, I was able to follow the instructions and paint a pretty nice picture!

I have absolutely no artistic talent but my painting turned out better than I expected. A few minor complaints: the instructor went a bit fast at times and they could put a lot of people in a small space. It would be better if you could spread out a bit more. But overall it was fun and I would go... More

We planned an afternoon out for 22 ladies. We brought wine and snacks. There were a lot of very nervous "artists" before we began. Everyone of us had a fabulous time and many are already planning return trips. Nerves melted away instantly with the help of Wendy (our instructor). Absolutely recommend it as any type of event for a small... More

I was very skeptical about painting with a twist, however a coworker suggested a girls night and it was a blast!!! I am very glad I took my initial class at Farmington Hills, because I wasn't so fond of the instructor at the Ferndale location. I thought she was incredibly rude and had that been my first experience I would... More

I had heard really good things about Painting with a Twist, but I was hesitant because I am not the best artist. I checked out the website and all the pictures other people had painted looked good, so I figured they must have really good instructors. On the night we went, the theme was Midnight on Bourbon St., which was... More

My fiance took me on a date and did not let me know where we were going. I would have put up a fuss because I do stick people only! We painted a pic of a couple walking in an Italian court yard. It hangs in my dental office. We later took the entire dental team of Tally Dental Excellence... More
