My friend Dawn and I work hard. I'm not just saying that because middle school is hard work; I'm saying that because not only do we teach, but we are mommas, wives, AND we work extra jobs. Dawn has several pizza restaurants and I write like I have something to say.
When Vino Van Gogh contacted me and invited me and a friend to come paint for the night, I didn't hesitate in saying Heck Yeah! And I immediately knew I'd take Dawn.
Dawn and I have collaborated on artistic endeavors before.
|These T-shirts rocked, right?|
More than creating masterpieces, we created memories. Plus, I knew we needed a night out.
Vino Van Gogh is different from other paint date places in that they meet in trendy, local restaurants. Dawn and I went early for dinner before painting. Because they meet in this type of setting, it's a lot smaller and more intimate. Our artist-instructor could give us a step and then visit with each of us individually to encourage us and (on more than one occasion for me) offer suggestions.
True to our form, Dawn and I kinda ventured off and did our own thing on our canvases. The artist was there to assist us and encourage us when we said, "Wait ... I didn't think it'd look like that!"
Vino Van Gogh has several offerings in Tulsa. If you're looking for a date night or a girls night out, Vino Van Gogh is a must do.
Really ... if Dawn and I can produce such masterpieces, you know you can as well.
