    I think that’s a great idea.

    I would much rather do that than many of the things that are done at other bachelorette parties.

    @MrsN14:  I JUST did this! It was so much fun! We brought wine and some of the other ladies brought snacks. Our paintings came out AMAZING and none of us have any artistic skills. We were there for about 3 hours.

     

    The dinner beforehand sounds great. I think that would be a fun alternative if you don’t want the whole “going out” bachelorette party!

    A friend just did this.  A bar is hosting it on tuesday nights, I guess a slow night ?  Anyway they said they had so much fun, and one of the girls needed art for her new house, so it worked out great.  Also everyone will have a souvenir of your fun night.

    I think that sounds fun! I also had to come up with a club alternative, since i’m older, most of my girls are married with kids, and I’m totally not the clubbing type to begin with. We’re doing an afternoon of wine tasting, but I wish they had something like that painting around here

    I actually signed up for one of these classes in March with my girlfriends! Sounds like a really fun option if you aren’t into the club scene. Check out sites like livingsocial and groupon and you may be able to find serious discounts! I think ours came out to $12/ea for 4 of us. Make sure you book early in advance! We’ve been trying to go since December and keep missing dates because they fill up pretty quickly. Have fun!

    @MrsN14:  I actually teach these classes.  I’ve had bachelorette parties before and they always seem to have fun!  At one, two girls ended up painting dicks all over their paintings, haha.  They were obviously drunk.

    If I wasn’t already an artist as my profession/teach these classes I would do one!

    @MrsN14:  for my “non-shower” my MOH’s did a session at a local craft place where everybody made me silver charms and put them on a necklace for me.  They brought wine and snacks. It was awesome and I love that I have something to remember it by. It depends on the crowd though, we all like being crafty and have craft nights where we try new things, so it was perfect for us!

    That’s exactly what we did at mine! It was so much fun. Ee went out to dinner and a piano bar afterwards. My sister organized it so that I was able to pick out the painting, and my “lovely” creation is hanging in one of the bathrooms upstairs!

    I know lots of people who have done these! It sounds like so much fun and the paintings always come out awesome. I have it on my list of things to try. Dinner beforehand sounds like a nice idea to just chit chat and relax before things get crazy with drinks and paint 🙂

    @MrsN14:  it’s a fantastic idea!  A friend of mine opened a studio like this and I’ve since made 4 paintings.  They key is to make sure whoever works the studio is personable and can help your friends who are non-artists (like me!) feel comfortable coming out of their shell and help them when they get stuck.  I went to a pottery painting place for a bachelorette and it was really difficult for me because there was no one to help spark ideas.  I’d suggest go and talk to whomever will be instructing the class on the night of the party and see what their vibe is – they are the ones that will make or break your event…
