VIP PAINTS 1907 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, IL 60608
OMG!!!!! You all have to visit this little cozy place called, VIP Paints. This place definitely reminds me of an elite status of VIP because it is by APPOINTMENT only. It’s a BYOB establishment and you know I bought my favorite wine (Cooper’s Hawk Blueberry), you can pack snacks, host private parties, etc.
Well on this day, me and my fiance’ attended a couples painting class. Boy did I learn quickly that I was not a professional at the strokes of a paintbrush…….but no fear, the instructors guided me along the way, and for me, helped me cover up a lot of mistakes I made lol.
Exhibit A (above): This was our finished product!!!! On the left is my fiance’ portrait and mine is on the right. I literally had to rely on his direction during this (which was a challenge at times because I like to be perfect at everything). As you can see, he followed the directions of the instructor, well. I on the other hand, played it off big time! The class in and of itself was a joy to experience together and I can’t wait to enjoy it for a “Girls Night Out Event.”
Of course the humanitarian in me thought to add colored ribbons to my portrait to represent my love and passion for helping victims and survivors of: breast cancer (pink), autism and lupus (blue), HIV/AIDS (red) and of course domestic violence (purple).
Take it from me, go on a date or go with your best friends, it will be a wonderful experience for all. I’m excited to go back and make candles and paint wine glasses. If you plan on bringing snacks (cheese tray, fruit, etc.), they have a refrigerator to store your snacks and beverages in. We enjoyed ourselves and hope you will too if you decide to visit…….enjoy…..sip and paint!!!!!!!
