I received tickets to this even from Vino Van Gogh in exchange for a review. I was not compensated in any other way for this post and all opinions are 100% my own!
I’ve seen people I know doing these canvas painting parties all over the place and coming home with the most beautiful creations to hang in their homes. It looked like fun, but I had never tried it myself, so I jumped at the chance to attend a Vino Van Gogh event here in Omaha with one of my best friends!
Vino Van Gogh is different than most canvas painting classes because places because they hold their events at popular restaurants, so when you order food and drink you’re getting it from a place like J.Coco or Nosh or, in our case, Nebraska Brewing Company! When you look at the Vino Van Gogh event calendar, you can see the location of the event as well as what the painting will be for that night. I chose our event based on both the location and the painting – we were thrilled with both!
I knew this would be the perfect thing to do with my dear friend, Val – a relaxing night for two busy mamas who don’t get to see each other often enough! We chose the Vino Van Gogh event at Nebraska Brewing Company and the painting “Cherry Blossoms.” It was fun and relaxing and we enjoyed it so much! Here are a few highlights from the evening:
Your registration for the event includes the cost of the class and all supplies. Drinks and food are not included, but each location offers their own specials for Vino Van Gogh participants! I’m not a wine drinker, but I did enjoy some yummy food after we were done painting!
One of the most fun parts of this evening was seeing all the different interpretations of the same original painting! Carl was a great teacher who both taught us and encouraged us to make the paintings our own. I love watching people be creative, whether it comes naturally or not!
Our finished masterpieces! Mine is now hanging in the hallway as both beautiful art and a great memory with a wonderful friend!

The last time I did art was at Jenny’s Art class and it was a Valentines Day present for my hubby. I am not artistic at all, but doing that with some snacks and a great friend, made for a wonderful time! 🙂
The last time I tried art was this summer. I purchased some inexpensive water color pencils from hobby lobby and a journal. Let’s just I need more practice. 🙂 I would love this opportunity as I am new to Omaha!

Does doodling flowers and animals on a notepad during a meeting count as “art”? If it does, then I did this morning!

Does making handprint art with my kids for Mother’s Day count as art? Oh, actually I went to joslyn and make some digital art in the kids exhibit since then!
I also tweeted about it…but I don’t have Facebook so I didn’t like their page. Do you have to do both to get another entry or is that two separate entries (liking and tweeting)?
You’re good! Each one is a different entry!
I’m finishing a cross stitch I designed so that’s artsy, right?
I make art every school day because I’m an elementary art teacher! This would be fun!

I did a painting in February!
Last time I did any art was in high school, so… almost ten years ago. Unless making imprints of my daughters feet count.
I just painted some wine glasses at home with acrylic paint. And decorated coffee mugs a few weeks ago!

I do art pretty often as a homeschool teacher, but the last time I did it for myself was when I created a new gallery wall in our home full of photos of our family! Super fun!

The last time I did art was to pre-paint twelve peg dolls for my daughter and her 11 friends to decorate for a sleepover.
