At Painting with a Twist in Harker Heights, their motto is “a little bit of paint, a little bit of wine, and a whole lot of fun”. The concept at Painting with a Twist is to offer fun, knowledgeable instructors and an easy to follow work of art for the inexperienced painter. This Saturday, June 1, Painting with a Twist will be holding a Disney-themed class from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The establishment invites people of all ages to be their guest at a Rose of Love painting inspired by Beauty and the Beast. There is a registry fee of $35, and those wishing to attend can reserve a seat online at www.paintingwithatwist.com/harker-heights/ or over the phone.

Painting with a Twist is located at 716 Indian Trail and is one of the 350 franchise locations all over the country. Originally founded as Corks N Canvas in 2007, founders Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney wanted to pair instructional art with friends, wine, and a lively instructor to produce unique works of art. The franchise began with four locations in Mandeville, Louisiana and the surrounding area before becoming Painting with a Twist in 2009. The organizations are the one of the largest employers of aspiring artists to date; it was recognized early on that the talents and enthusiasms of the staff were key elements to the success of the artwork. Corks N Canvas and Painting with a Twist own a combined 1500 pieces of art, created by nearly 50 instructors. The company maintains the artwork copy rights and brand direction of their locations to ensure that each spot produces the same fun experience by which the company was founded on. Artwork can range from landscapes, abstracts and cityscapes to creative renderings of seafood, animals, architecture and florals.

The Beauty and the Beast inspired painting is one of the many Disney-collaborations the business has done; other works involve the newest movie Moana, and many others. Painting with a Twist is open Monday through Sunday at varying times depending on what classes are taking place that day. Other upcoming events at Painting with a Twist include a Sunflower on Sunset, Peaceful Path, Texas in Bluebonnets and much more. The studio allows patrons to bring their own alcohol to adult classes, and children must be 15 years or older to attend the Monday through Thursday classes, unless specified on the website by “all ages”. Friday through Sunday classes must be 18 years or older to attend.
