BYOB Painting Lounge
You don’t need to be proficient with a paintbrush in order to attend Painting Lounge’s guided acrylic sessions, each centered on a famous picture. The studio’s Manhattan location is booze-friendly, so bring a bottle of vino or a six-pack and make like Monet on a bender. One masterwork is featured per class—pick a date based on the artist you want to imitate (recurring favorites include Van Gogh, Klimt, Picasso and Munch) and an instructor will guide you step-by-step through the painting process. You might not leave with an exact replica of Starry Night, but it will be a version that bears your unique (if tipsy) creative fingerprint. • 212-518-1803, paintinglounge.com. $50–$65.
