Pinot’s Palette – Alamo Heights is the franchise’s first location in San Antonio, TX and we were ready to welcome them with open arms. The fabulous Heather Hunter of The Cowgirl Gourmet arranged an incredible girls night out for some of the local San Antonio bloggers and boy did we have fun! I have never done this type of painting class before but I definitely would do it again!
One of the owners Christina welcomed our group on a Thursday night for a complimentary painting class. Artists in resident Lisa, with assistance from Sonia, were incredibly encouraging as they guided us newbies through the artistic process, starting with a completely black canvas!
We all arrived around 6:30pm so that we could unload our baked goodies, have a snack, and catch our breath with a nice glass of wine we were able to bring in. Although we brought our own wine and food, Pinot Palette provided the stemware and plastic utensils and plates, along with little bottles of water. They are also working on a menu option with EZ’s for easy catering if you throw a private, special event and don’t want the hassle of catering out.

The picture for the evening was: Deco Martini
And we all nervously glanced around the room and laughed when Lisa promised we’d be able to reproduce ourselves. We were given a blank canvas and the colors we needed to miss with two different sized brushes. Slowly our canvas turned into presentable bar art! It was a very informal environment although they did pace us a bit so that we’d have time to finish all the intricate details. But I didn’t feel rushed. We even got a couple short breaks while we waited for our paint to set.
The artists have been working as such for years, often also teaching at local colleges and in the community. I would recommend this experience as a Girls Night Out, date (although it’s not for everyone’s husband…), and kids birthday parties! They are very flexible and can help you create a very memorable evening.
