Get ready to paint and sip at the Treasure Coast's newest art studio.

Painting with a Twist, a growing national franchise of BYOB painting studios, has opened a location in Jensen Beach. The studio, which opened its doors Nov. 30, is located at 3759 NW Federal Highway near the Treasure Coast Mall.

Guests at Painting with a Twist come for a group painting class, where they follow along with an art instructor who provides step-by-step guidance. Canvas, paint and brushes are all provided by the studio, and everyone gets to take his or her masterpiece home. Classes cost $35.

The best part? Participants can enjoy their own wine, beer or snacks while they unleash their inner artist. Popular painting subjects include landscapes, animals, iconic buildings and florals, with such upcoming sessions as Neon Christmas Tree on Dec. 3 and Candy Cane Palm Tree on Dec. 8. 

The local studio is owned by Karen and Mark Sandler, who visited their friend's Painting with a Twist studio in Philadelphia and decided to open one in their hometown.

“We love the concept because it’s about happiness. I wanted to own a business that makes people happy; somewhere they can come to have a good time,” said Karen Sandler, who works as a relator in Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties.

The local Painting with a Twist studio will also hold Painting with a Purpose events, from which 50 percent of proceeds are donated to local charities each month. The first, benefiting The Sunshine Kids, will be held Dec. 12 to help provide trips and activities for young cancer patients.
