Blue Marble Bookstore Presents: Mama on a Budget: Gallery to Go

Gallery to Go is is part of the #FTMFamily

No matter the mama and no matter the budget, everyone needs a ladies’ night here and there.  A successful mama’s night out requires two things: friends and alcohol.  Mix in a little painting and supporting two local businesses and you’ve got a recipe for a great time.

Every third Thursday of each month, DEPs hosts a painting and wine party.  The painting is provided by Gallery to Go and no painting experience is necessary! Parties are approximately 2 hours long, and include a pre-drawn canvas, paint, paint brushes and an apron.  These parties are intended for adults unless otherwise noted. 

Gallery to Go has several options for parties.  They have open parties at sponsored paint party locations such as the DEPs parties.  And they also host parties at private events at a home, business, club, or church.

The DEP party was in their large back room and when you walk in, a canvas and fresh wine glass is waiting. I was at a table with a few of my friends who had signed up together. The first glass was poured and then the class began. We went step by step and since it was February we started to make the bleeding heart plant painting. Chris the owner of Gallery to Go would say several times to not be intimidated, she would walk around while music played and laughter filled the room. No matter how bad the paintings actually were, after the third glass of wine your painting started to look like an original Picasso.  DEPS had four wines to taste: a rose, white, red and dessert wine. Also, light refreshments and water were available.

The next event is Thursday March 20 from 7-9 pm at DEP’s Fine Wine (424 Alexandria Pike in Ft. Thomas).  Sign up here and tell them Mama on a Budget sent you.
