Paint with a Twist!
Monday, September 15th- 10:00am-12:00pm

It’s time to get creative! A little paint, a few mimosas and a whole lot of fun! Join in a whole new “twist” for our spouse/companion event this year.

Are you a closet Picasso? Monet? Rembrandt? There is no skill required as the instructor will guide you step-by-step to paint a chosen print. You’ll leave with a one-of-a-kind creation and a new-found talent you’ll want to explore. When you’re done painting, the spa will offer finger or toenail polish changes.

And to make sure those creative juices are flowing, painting will be accompanied by fresh mimosas. Florida orange juice never tasted so good….
