Each session invites participants to have a go at recreating a particular painting, guided along the way with some helpful tips from on-hand experts. Paint, canvas, brushes and whatnot are all provided, obviously, and you’re free to enjoy wine and snacks from your painter’s perch, should you need to kickstart your inner artist.

Brushstrokes

Originally founded in 2012, the B&B team have six years of practice at wringing talent from the most tentative of brush-wielders. In fact, you could say they’ve got it down to a fine art.

They host classes at cool bars throughout the Long Beach area: Alegria, District Wine, Q Smokehouse and Sip Lounge are a few coming up. They also host ‘Creative Nights’ – bar-free painting evenings at their own Long Beach studios where you can simply let your imagination run wild. Sessions are priced from $30, which is pretty neat considering you get to take your own painting home with you! (Assuming you don’t immediately put in the garbage, of course.)
