Tap Into Your Creative Side at Sips n Strokes

Tap Into Your Creative Side at Sips n Strokes

Sips n Stokes is a well kept secret in Dunwoody, GA.  It's a place that the talented (and the not so talented) get step by step instructions from a teacher on how to paint the pre-selected picture of the night. On their website, they have a calendar along with different pictures for every evening, allowing you to choose which art you’d like to try.

The more details in a painting, the longer the class, and each class is at least 2 hrs long. Most importantly, you can bring your Sips - beverages such as wine are also permitted.,
