DECEMBER THEME: PAINT ‘N SIP
Art enthusiasts across the city of Charlotte have made #BechtlerByNight the premiere art event to look forward to the third Friday of every month. Friday, December 15, the Bechtler will provide a night of entertainment with Paint ‘N Sip.
Celebrate the holiday season with Bechtler By Night’s most popular art activity, Paint ‘N Sip! Our on-staff artist teachers will lead you through an hour-long painting activity, showing you how to paint wonderful winter scene (pictured below) and unlocking your own creative energy. Sign up here to take this unique painting class led by a Bechtler teaching artist and create you own winter landscape piece. Classes will happen at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., and cost $20 each. Sign up now as space is limited to the first 25 spaces in each class!
If you can’t make it into one of those classes, you can also make snowflake cutouts in the lobby while you sip on our specialty drink of the month, the Holiday Mule.
