Very Special Arts (VSA) is a state organization focused on arts and disability. The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens partners with them annually for the VSA Festival in which thousands of children with disabilities visit the Museum to view original works of art and to experience art through all of their senses.
On December 8th, the St. Augustine location of Painting with a Twist is hosting a fundraiser in partnership with VSA with 50% of proceeds going towards the organization.
Painting with a Twist provides a unique classroom experience. In addition to being invited to bring their own bottle of wine, students in each session are provided with paint, canvas, and brushes along with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor who leads the class step by step through the process of completing the session’s featured artwork. At the end of the class students go home with a one of a kind creation and new skill to explore.
On Saturday the 8th there will be a number of classes to choose from, most with a holiday theme, beginning at 10am and running on until 10pm. Interested students can reserve spaces online here.
This is a great opportunity to create a piece of artwork either for yourself or as a gift for the holidays, and to help raise money for a worthy organization doing tremendous good in our state.
