Schultz Starts Art Studio
Located at 149 North Walnut Street in, A Brush and a Beverage is a new “paint and sip,” shop in downtown Wooster.
According to owner Laurie Schultz, who was an art teacher for 16 years, her inspiration for opening A Brush and a Beverage came from a visit she took to a paint and sip shop one night. Schultz said her friends asked her to teach at-home painting classes, as well as doing a painting class fundraiser at Troutman Vineyards and she loved it.
It has been Schultz’s dream to open up her own business and she said she loves teaching and saw this as a great opportunity to incorporate the two things.
As far as registering for classes, people may walk in the night of a class as long as it is not full; however, it is recommended that they register early to be prepared for class.
During class, Schultz teaches attendees step-by-step lessons on how to use paint brushes, colors and brushstrokes. The paintings are chosen depending on the season and are sometimes personalized by name. Every painting chosen is able to be painted within a two hour time frame.
Overall in her business Schultz hopes “To give an opportunity to paint and to see how fun, relaxing and therapeutic can be.”
She also wants attendees to, “enjoy time with family and friends doing a thing they didn’t know they could do.”
Upcoming classes will be held all throughout November. Specific class times can be found on abrushandbeverage.com.
