-- Painting with a Twist will host Painting with a Purpose, a benefit for the Arthritis Walk. Join Amy and the Anti-Inflammatories Sunday, March 27th to help raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation. The Arthritis Walk® is the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide team event that raises funds to fight arthritis. Our rallying cry, Let's Move Together is a nationwide movement that encourages people to move daily for better health to prevent or treat arthritis. Moving just 30 minutes per day can ease joint pain, improve mobility and reduce fatigue. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children live with arthritis. Arthritis is the most common cause of disability and limits people’s activity more than heart disease, cancer or diabetes! Many people with arthritis can’t manage simple tasks like tying their shoes, getting dresses or even walking. That’s why we are walking for them. Please help us reach our goal!

The Painting with a Purpose ‘art as entertainment’
step-by-step instructional art classes ‘follow the tradition set by the New Orleans area founders of Painting with a Twist, which was established with the intent to provide post-Katrina victims with an artistic outlet as well as an enjoyable social experience. Painting with a Twist strives to bring out your inner artist, and urges you to come alone or grab a friend or two, your favorite beverage, and create the evening’s painting, The Peacock. Come and paint to make
a difference with a local artist.
