A few years ago while visiting family and friends in my hometown Boise, Idaho, I was catching up with an old friend. We were discussing how I had rediscovered my love of painting while teaching a friend how to paint at our kitchen tables while sharing a bottle of wine. At the suggestion of my friend, I tried out a course combining painting and drinking wine in Boise. It was such fun, that I immediately started planning to bring it back to my home in Bath. That’s how Paint by Wine at Studio LX got its start in 2018.
