For the longest time, I have wanted to attend one of these painting classes I’ve heard great things about. My friend Sarah’s sister work at Create Mix & Mingle and we received a free class to attend. We attended the “Paint & Sip” adult night for 21 and up where you can order beer or wine to get a little extra liquid creativity.
The featured painting of the night was of the Golden Gate Bridge. Create Mix & Mingle provides aprons, paint, brushes and a canvas. Our art instructor Marco gave instructions step by step to create our own masterpiece. I was really happy with the final result!
Create Mix & Mingle is as EASY as 1-2-3:
- Go to the calendar to choose a featured painting and date.
- Book your spot(s) online or contact us to reserve a private party.
- Get ready to unleash your inner artist! We provide everything you need: canvas, paint, brushes, and apron.
The art studio is a big open space with rows of seats and blank canvases. Paintings surround the room from other art classes for inspiration. The step-by-step instruction by Marco was really helpful, though I kept falling behind trying to perfect the last step.
Marco was great! I think some of us were pretty concerned with how our paintings were developing, but he encouraged us to not get hung up — to just keep moving along. At the end of class, it took me stepping away from the painting to actually see I did a pretty good job. As Sarah and I were taking a picture holding our painting, several of the other students Ooh’ed and Ah’ed ours. Success!
I would love to take another class at Create Mix & Mingle. They have some really fun classes coming up including Moonlit Waves on May 26, Hummingbird on May 31 (this class is a “Mimosa Morning” Saturday session), and Luminescent Forest on June 18. These art classes are great for many occasions including:
- Date night
- Girls night out
- Saturday girls day
- Team building
- Birthday party
- Bachelorette party
You can even rent out the space for your own personal event. For those with kids, you can send your kids to summer camp at Create Mix & Mingle.
If your looking for a gift for the person who has everything or is impossible to shop for, I highly recommend getting them a gift certificate to Create Mix & Mingle.
