Paint ‘N Sip Led by Instructor This Year!
Thanks to Diana Myers (aka the Artzy Nana!) we will be offering a FREE guided experience this year in the Paint ‘N Sip section. There is no pre-registration, and there may be a short wait to get a seat. Plan for about a 20 minute lesson where there will be about 15 people seated per class.
Diana Myers has been painting for more than 3 decades. After years of teaching with ‘Painting with a Twist’, she started her own mobile ‘Paint And Sip’ business titled ‘Art by Diana Myers.’ A very busy Nana, she also leads online classes at the Artzy Rose, which is on Facebook and most social networks. We are thrilled to have her teach a simple wine class on multi media paper using her step-by-step technique!Art by Diana Myers
