DIYView – Paint and Sip

Paint for Fun
By Abigail Murphy

Have you ever wanted to learn how to paint like a professional? Have you ever wanted to enjoy a glass of delicious wine or beer while doing so? Look no further! Susan Wagoner opened Art Time and Sip Wine, a wine and art experience that creatively combined her longtime experience of teaching art and bartending, back in January of 2017! Each class is taught by a local artist that guides the participant in step-by-step lessons that can make anyone a successful artist. Canvases, paints, brushes, easels, and aprons are all provided in the class, but wine and beer are available for purchase (or you can even bring in your own bottle!) The studio is located in Downtown Modesto on the corner of 16th and J Street in the Damrell building. Classes range from 2 to 3 hours and prices range from $40-$50 per class. The Art Time and Sip Wine Studios is a fun, relaxing, and exciting atmosphere where participants can get together and enjoy a night out, meet new people, and create ART! Come by and check it out today! Sign up for classes at
