SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It's been said, "Different strokes for different folks," and a new business in Scripps Ranch called PaintNVineyard is keeping its customers amused while tapping their muse.
"We furnish everything needed to reproduce a painting -- a canvas, brushes, the paint. We even provide aprons for people to wear so they don't get paint on their clothes," Mike Strawbridge said.
The classes are BYOB. The cost is $35 a student, and they come with professional instruction.
"Our artists are the key. They will lead you step by step, make it simply fun. You leave here with a great painting," Mike said.
Tonight's class, lead by Jennifer Doehring, is recreating an African sunset.
"It looks difficult because of its reflection. People go 'Oh I don't know if I'm going to be able to do that,' but it's actually just a simple trick, just flipping the canvas," Jennifer said.
Just some simple strokes to get started, then on to a little detail.
Mixed colors become clouds, hash marks transformed into tree branches, and along the way there's nothing to intimidate even a rookie Rembrandt.
"Most people think they can't do it until two hours later and then they go, aha! And look a their painting and say I did it,"
PaintNVineyard offers an opportunity for a brush with greatness.
