The real name is Island Art Party
Back in November when son, Trevor, was with us in Maui we went to the “Paint and Sip” evening. We arrived early and were seated while we waited for the other people to arrive. In comes 8 women who belong (they say) to a Book Club. One of the girls said this was the girls night out, kiddies and husbands were at home. Let the fun begin! It really did begin, it did.
There is a bar and you can order whatever you want to consume…be it with or without alcohol. The music is loud and fun. Neil Diamond and Elvis Presley to the forefront. These girls sang every word and danced while painting. Our instructor was having a blast as well.
Now…Neither Don, Trevor or myself have ever held a small paint brush in our hands. Walls and patios don’t count. Our instructor had picked the subject matter for the night and it was painting Koa fish. Nervous? You bet. Was it fun?
Trevor painted his fish on a turtle base (easy to put in suitcase) and Don and I opted for the canvas. I highly recommend this. It is in Kihei in the Azeka Mall.
