As the popularity of wine-painting parties grows, Dorothy Lane will host its first “Paint and Palate” event this month.
Customers will get to create a painting while enjoying a taste of several wines.
The event will be held March 29 at the retailer’s store in Dayton, Ohio's Oakwood neighborhood. Tickets cost $35, plus a nominal fee for the wine tasting.
Along with being held at vineyards, painting stores and other types of retail locations, wine and painting parties are popping up on supermarket event calendars.
Whole Foods Market, Austin, Texas, for instance, has held the events at several of its stores. At one store, customers who made a $35 donation to the Whole Planet Foundation could attend the painting class plus get two glasses of house wine.
Meanwhile, Whole Foods' Brooklyn, N.Y., store puts a spin on the trend by hosting beer-painting events in its rooftop bar in the warmer months. The monthly “Drink and Draw” events are the result of a partnership between Whole Foods and the nonprofit Arts Gowanus. A different artist each month leads a group class on a specific topic, such as still life, watercolor or collage.
Instruction is free, but attendees must bring their own supplies. Beverage specials are offered throughout the event.
