We have an artist who wants to help women to get in touch with their creative side. We are offering monthly classes that will include conversation, inspiration and creativity. This is a safe place for you to explore your inner artist. We are not creating masterpieces but creating creative experiences and building your artist confidence. It is good to take risks and step out of your comfort zone, that is what creating is all about. So join us for this adventure and let's have some creative fun.

The Art of Canvas Painting and Craft Winemaking

Join us for two unique nights of creativity. This is a two-part class. At the first session (held at the Rum River Art Center), the class will mix the ingredients to make two types of wine (no grape stomping is involved) and each class member will create an original canvas painting, which will also be turned into a custom wine label. Five weeks later the wine will be ready for bottling. At the second session (held at Genesis Winemaking), class members will socialize while tasting and bottling the wine, and your canvas painting will be reproduced as your custom wine label. Each class participant will end up with their canvas painting and 2 bottles of custom-labeled, craft wine.
The class is perfect for winemakers and artists of all levels - whether novice or connoisseur.
