Pinot and Picasso Parties

These parties are so much fun, and so easy to put together! This was a follow up to our art camp for charity and we all had a blast.

First, you need to find someone to instruct. The instructor can easily find step by step instructions for whatever you choose to paint online. Anyone that will paint for Pinot will do! In this case, we roped Sarita into doing it. We each thanked her by bringing her a bottle of wine to take home.

The set up: Don't have several easels floating around your house? No problem! We made ours out of coolers with hand weights inside:

Throw over some drop cloths, prop up your canvas (we bought them in a 5 pack and used a 50% off coupon at Michaels), add a paper plate for mixing paints, a water cup for cleaning brushes, and a glass of wine. You are ready to paint your masterpiece!

Before the party, Sara painted a sample of what we would be creating, but this isn't necessary. You could just print a copy of your muse off the internet or buy a print.

Everyone took home their masterpiece. I'm sure they will all sell for mucho dinero someday!


  1. Had so much fun, this was a GREAT idea! I'd host one myself... if I could teach painting. :-)

  2. That's the beauty of it, you can literally just google directions to any painting!

    You can go to youtube and find a demo of almost anything!
