HOLMDEL, NJ: You are going to want to paint ALL the paintings at Painting With A Twist over the holiday season and it officially kicks off this Friday.  "We've got A LOT of fun paintings lined up through the holidays, a lot of fun for the whole family", says Joe Castagliola, owner of Painting with a Twist in Holmdel.

Painting with a Twist, is the perfect gift for anyone on your gift list!

The fun starts off with a "Candy Cane Unicorn" this Friday and continues throughout the day with an Open Studio to paint various holiday paintings, and 2 different movie themed choices:  Frozen II and Star Wars.   It caps off with a trivia event, "Holiday Oh!  Clark's Station Wagon" where guests will enjoy trivia and a themed painting.  "Trivia events bring a lot of smiles and a bit of competition.", adds Joe.

"One of the questions I get hit with occasionally is "What do you have for boys?"  Our partnership with Disney Pictures provides the perfect response for the holiday season -- "STAR WARS:  The Rise Of Skywalker".  This is exclusive to PWAT by agreement with Disney Pictures.   Disney actually approves every piece of art with the franchise."  Of course, Star Wars fans are not limited to boys.  Girls and adults love the movies, and we have paintings that are well suited to adults.  "We have a group of adults doing a team-building event that depicts a light saber battle on the edge of a spaceship.  Folks love Star Wars and the positive messages of good triumphing over evil.", adds Joe.

PWAT has also been granted an extension to continue offering Frozen II paintings through December 8.   We have Elsa, Anna, Olaf and one called "Sisters in a Frozen Forest" that is my favorite because it is geared towards adults and makes a great gift to give to a child.  Handmade gifts are always the best because they come from the heart."  

And for the crafters out there, the Holmdel PWAT has "Tipsy Trees".  These are only being offered at a few PWATs and Holmdel is one of them. These are wood Christmas Tree shapes that have a front and rear part and fit together to create a 15 or 24 hole holder for mini wine or liquor bottles.  Said Joe, "The group that painted them last week had a blast and half of those trees are going to be gifts.  We have glitter paint for the star on top.  One person went home, filled it with bottles and then added a battery powered light set then sent me a photo.  Her special gift is ready to be given!  

These Tipsy Trees are unique.  And to be honest, our price for the class, including everything you need to create a great tree and our instruction for 2 hours is actually less than a person will pay to buy the large tree online at retail, unfinished. with shipping.  I've checked.   I will special order these for anyone who wants to have a private party.  All that is required is to guarantee 12 seats.  Anyone interested can call or text me and I'll provide all the details."

Painting With A Twist is located in Kohl's Plaza at the intersection of Route 35 and Union Ave in Holmdel, inside of the courtyard.   You can book seats or a private party at the website or call or text the studio at 732-226-2665.  Texting works really well because you aren't tied to a phone.  PWAT will not market to you via text unless you specifically opt-in.  Without the opt-in, the only texts you receive are replies to communications you initiate, class reminders and class follow-ups such as thank yous and links to any pictures taken.

Painting with a Twist in Holmdel is an art party where no artistic experience is needed.

Bring friends, wine, beer, and snacks; we’ll provide all your painting supplies and artist instructions. At the end of class, you’ll get to take home your own completed work of art! Simply browse our calendar and select a painting and date that works for you.

Painting and drinking wine is a fun thing to do for a girls’ night out, date night, adult birthday party, bachelorette party, family reunion, group activity, or company team building event. Join a public painting class to meet other fun people, or if you have a big group check out our private event Party Info page. See what our classes look like in this Google Maps indoor virtual tour and exactly where we are inside of Kohl's Plaza in this outdoor virtual tour.
