April 13, 2011 - PRLog -- In April, McKinney’s Painting with a Twist will host Painting with a Purpose, a benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, which has trained nearly half a million runners, walkers, triathletes, cyclists and hikers, and has raised over $2 billion to fund lifesaving cancer research. Help us to make a difference! Come and paint the Cracked Cross with a local artist!

In March they hosted their benefit for Arthritis Walk®, the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide team event that raises funds to fight arthritis. Their rallying cry, Let's Move Together, is a nationwide movement that encourages people to move daily for better health to prevent or treat arthritis. The event was well-attended by the community and Kimberly Cotton, owner of Painting with a Twist, was proud to be able to donate $750 to the cause.

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.

McKinney is one of 44 corporate franchises in ten states to open in two years, and its tried and true system is a winner! Over 100 artists work for Painting with a Twist studios, and they have created over 1,000 copyrighted paintings.
