5 Places to Create a Masterpiece This March

Warm up your creative muscles with an evening at one of these "paint and sip" studio locations this March.

COCKTAILS AND CANVASES
Paint Nite patrons create their own artwork.

1. March 2: ArtJamz
The wine and creativity flows freely at ArtJamz, where staff (better known as Creative Enablers) are on hand to offer artistic advice—and serve you wine until you love your painting. In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the Brookland location is swapping out the usual wine for $4 Irish beers and helping painters put the lush green lands of Ireland on their canvases. $25-$60 per person. 716 Monroe St. NE, Studio 24, 202.629.3780

2. March 6: Uncork’d Art
This Stafford studio is taking students out for an en plein air session with a special excursion to the Potomac Point Winery. The creative retreat begins with a private wine and artisanal cheese tasting, followed by Uncork’d staff-led class on creating your own masterpiece. $65 per person. 275 Decatur Road, Stafford, Va., 888.317.1047 ext. 1

3. March 10: Paint Nite
Instead of studio sessions, Paint Nite travels to restaurants, bars and taverns across the DMV to host their painting parties. On March 10, they fete the National Cherry Blossom Festival with a special evening at Shaw’s Tavern. Patrons will paint from a photo that shows the cherry blossoms at the base of the Washington Monument. $45 per person. 520 Florida Ave. NW

4. March 17: Creative Carousal
Grab your friends, skip the bar crawl and create a masterpiece on St. Patrick’s Day with Creative Carousal. The H Street studio is taking over Elroy Bar for the evening, where painters will create a custom St. Paddy’s Day canvas. $30 per person. 1423 H St. NE, 240.205.2203

5. March 25: Merlot’s Art
Looking for a creative way to spend Friday night? This funky U Street studio has you covered. On March 25, Merlot’s Art invites you to paint a Sahara sunset while enjoying a complimentary glass of wine. Check the studio’s schedule for even more Friday night fun throughout the month. $39 per person. 1512 U St. NW
