Wine & Canvas Painting Class at Cellar 55

With a glass of wine, you can do almost anything, including create your own work of art.

Cellar 55 Tasting Room is offering a Wine & Canvas class from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, where participants will be guided through all the steps to create their very own “Hood Sunset” painting (pictured here). No artistic experience is necessary (although you probably already have experience drinking, so that’s fine).

Cellar 55 will be offering happy hour specials all evening so you can sip and nibble while you paint. The cost is $35 per person and includes all art materials; wine and food are available to purchase at Cellar 55. Sign up online here; if class is full, there’s a waiting list, or you can get information about upcoming Wine & Canvas events in the Portland area. Cellar 55 is located at 1812 Washington Street in downtown Vancouver.
