GALLIPOLIS, Ohio – The Artisan Shoppe & Studio will host Brush & Bottle this Friday, June 30, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Brush & Bottle is a monthly event held at The Artisan Shoppe & Studio, and interested participants must pay in advance to reserve a spot.

Participants can bring their own wine, alcohol, or any other beverage of choice to the event. Alcohol is not sold or served at the event. Participants will learn to paint an image from professional artist, Valerie G. Thomas.

Art supplies will be provided and each class lasts about two hours. There are only 10 spots available, so anyone interested, should reserve their spot now. Participants must be at least 18 years old.

Prices for this event are based on the size of canvas chosen. A canvas sized 18” by 24” is $40, and a 11” by 14” canvas is only $20.

Kelsey Kerr, co-manager and assistant in the Brush & Bottle classes stated, “Brush & Bottle is an event where you can bring your own beverage and learn how to paint a different picture each month. It is usually held the last Friday of every month. This Friday, we will be painting a Van Gough-esque expressionistic version of the Ohio River. What’s wonderful about this painting event is that they never turn out to be cookie cutter paintings. Our teacher, Valerie Thomas, guides everyone to bring out their own style and their own preferences in their paintings and it’s a wonderful opportunity to relax and have fun.”
