Van Gogh, daVinci, Vermeer, and YOU! Barrel & Brush is a fun and unique way to uncork your creativity while learning from a local artist. In this two hour class you will be taken step-by-step through an original piece of art creating your very own masterpiece in acrylics. Each class session features a unique and colorful 16 X 20 painting on stretched canvas that will be ready to hang or give as a gift. Enjoy your favorite glass of wine as well as snacks all in the ambiance of the breathtaking Mt. Vale Vineyards in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains just minutes from downtown Galax.

Purchase a glass of wine (or two…. who’s counting?), grab an apron, and take a seat! Paint, canvas, brushes, aprons, and inspiration are included in the modest tuition fee of $30 for two hours of creativity and relaxation. As you unwind on a Friday evening unleash your inner artist and enjoy!
