I hope you’re making plans to join Vino’s Picasso Naples for Lovegrove’s Club Mermaid on Wednesday. It’s from 6-8 p.m. at 2367 Vanderbilt Beach Road, #805, in Naples. The experts at Vino’s Picasso will be walking participants through the easy-peasy process of painting the delightful little mermaid pictured at the right on a 12 by 16 inch canvas (although you can upgrade to 16×20 for just $5 more). When you’re done, you’ll have memories you can treasure, along with your very own Lovegrove-inspired painting.

The instructors at Vino’s Picasso are absolutely, positively great. You don’t need any prior experience to make a painting of your own that you and your family will cherish forever. Vino’s sells champagne, wine, beer, soda, bottled water and snacks – but you are welcome to BYO champagne, wine and beer. They’ll provide the cups and corkscrews. (But no hard liquor.)

They not only supply all the art supplies you’ll need, but good company and great music. The cost is just $35 person, and all materials will be provided. But:

  • you need to RSVP;
  • there are no refunds, no AMEX and credits for no-shows;
  • seating is first come, first served; and
  • while Vino’s provides aprons, dress to paint.
