Cabernet and Canvas

If you want to do something creative, tasty and fun this spring, then get in touch with your inner Picasso or Monet at a Cabernet and Canvas event.

With a paint brush in one hand and a vino (or your preferred drink of choice) in the other, Cabernet and Canvas adds flavour to your typical painting class. The concept was borrowed from the ‘paint and sip’ classes that are pretty popular in the USA and are now taking off in Perth.

I was fortunate enough to experience my first class back in 2014 whilst I was on holiday in Santa Barbara. Nibbles, wine and painting – what more could a girl want! It was a great way to spend an afternoon with your girlfriends and I am excited to learn that it is a now a regular event here in Perth.

Classes are delivered in a local venue, guided by a local artist giving you step by step instruction as you give your best impression of the featured painting – while eating  good pub food, listening to funky tunes and of course, drinking wine.

The featured painting at Cabernet and Canvas, Paul Signac’s ‘The Seine at St Cloud’.

Each class features a different painting. All materials are provided and your ticket includes a $15 voucher to go towards the cost of food and beverages – winning! I attended one of the events at the Wembley Hotel and the featured painting was Paul Signac’s ‘The Seine at St Cloud’. Wow, what a beautiful painting!

Getting familiar with a paint brush

It was exciting to see your painting come together in front of you and whilst I am not the best artist, I did find it rather therapeutic and enjoyed the whole creative process.

The finished product!
