The wine was flowing as much as the creative juices at a wine and art party at Bottle & Bottega in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood. With the guidance of an expert, we each created a masterpiece using the same subject matter: a vase of flowers. The best part of the night was painting a portrait of a friend and then revealing it later in the night. Bottle & Bottega is just one of many art studios that encourage amateurs to bring their own drinks and food.
A few other BYOB art studios are Arts n Spirits in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood, Wine & Canvas in Chicago, Tipsy Paint in Glenview and Artist @ Heart in Libertyville. Paint-your-own pottery studios also offer special ladies nights.
