A new way to paint is coming to Amherst this month!


If you aren’t familiar with Painting With A Twist – here’s the deal: Painting with a Twist paint sessions are fun art, not fine art. No pressure, just a fabulous time. It is a great opportunity to spend time with friends in a casual party atmosphere. No painting experience? No problem! The talented artists guide you through your own unique masterpiece.

It’s a great way to get your creative juices flowing while laughing with friends – old and new!

It’s a concept that has taken off around the country and now a franchise location is opening in Amherst!

Deborah Scherff Peterson is the Managing Partner of the all new Painting With A Twist set to open in just a few weeks. She’s coming back home to open the business after some time in Florida – and she couldn’t be more thrilled,

“In order to open one here meant we would have to move back to the Buffalo area after many years of living in Florida. Although we love the Florida lifestyle, we have young grandchildren here that we didn’t get to see very often. It broke my heart every holiday or birthday that we couldn’t see them. So, we made the decision to go forward and relocate back to western New York and open a Painting With a Twist location.”

Deb says, if you’re, let’s say, not so artsy – no worries, “Often people will say, “But I don’t know how to paint; I can’t draw a straight line; I never painted before” It doesn’t matter whether you can paint or not. The artist will take you step by step through the featured painting so that you leave with your own unique masterpiece! And…you’ll leave happy!”

This is a fun thing to do with friends, significant others or kids. They have a paint-your-pet-class, offer birthday parities, kids’ paintings, mommy & me classes, gender reveals and on and on and on! They even have ‘Painting With a Purpose’ (PWAP) events, where a nonprofit can earn nearly half the proceeds of the event for their charitable organization. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Painting and much more with games, prizes and fun. And wait there’s more, it’s BYO! Bring your own beverage – wine or beer only – soda, coffee and snack foods, too.

So there you have it! Get ready to paint and more!

WHAT: Grand Opening of Painting With A Twist. Prizes, refreshments, contests and fun!

WHEN: Thursday, August 16th from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

WHERE: 2860 Niagara Falls Boulevard, Amherst
