This a fundraiser event, fun for adults. The B.Y.O.P.B. (Bring Your Own Paint Bottle) The idea is similar to Painting with a Twist and wine n' sip painting events.
You bring your favorite pack of beer bottles and we bring the canvas and paint. It is a few hours of fun, community and painting. 1 canvas will have a pre sketched image to practice on and the 2nd canvas is a free hand, free4all to be as creative as possible. It is normally about 2 - 3 hours of fun, friends and music.
*** Because this is not an Art Therapy for Veterans, however a fundraiser in an attempt for us to raise money for supplies, this event would have a charge to it. We normally ask for $35minium donation per person to cover paint and canvases for the ones putting on the event. Anything above that the host can keep for time and hosting the event.
Donating your time is a great way to give back to the community. You can give back in many ways:
- Volunteer at our Event in Nov.
