In keeping with the founders’ fundraising roots, Painting with a Twist is passionate about supporting the local communities that it serves. With its Painting with a Purpose program, the franchise locations serve as fundraising spots for local charities where at least 50 percent of the proceeds are given to organizations throughout the community.
By providing a much needed escape from reality, Painting with a Twist, a concept born of two spirited women in New Orleans following the dark days of Hurricane Katrina, is enjoying a growth spurt that has yielded more than 50 units in two short years of franchising. Offering a unique getaway that includes friends, paint and the option to bring a favorite bottle of wine and snacks, Painting with a Twist, the pioneer in the art entertainment industry, prides itself on making art accessible to anyone. With local art instructors as guides, friends can come together for an evening of creativity and camaraderie as they create one-of-a-kind pieces of art and, often, discover a newfound talent.
Over 100 artists work for the Painting with a Twist studios, and, with over 1,000 copyrighted paintings, the selection is dazzling. Check the calendar, choose a painting, reserve your spot online or by phone, come in for a great evening, and leave with a masterpiece!
At Painting with a Twist, a good time is had by one and all, wonderful memories are created, AND the customer leaves with a painting which he or she will proudly hang at home or give as a gift.
