Painting with A Twist offers step by step painting instructions and friends can have fun and sip on their favorite beverage. This summer, the Dickson location will be hosting two weeks of morning painting for kids.
Painting With A Twist has been open for business since February 1, 2018, and although the shop has only been open for four months, owner and studio manager Sara Larkins-Massiah is excited to start the Painting With a Twist Kids Camp. “We have been trying to have kids classes on Saturdays mostly and this will be our first week long attempt at doing something with the kids camp,” said Larkins-Massiah.
The kids camp will take place two weeks during the summer, each with a different theme. The first camp is the week of June 18th and the theme is Neon Pop Art. The second week is themed Summer Fun and will start the week of July 16th. The camp is for kids ages 7-12 and will be from 9:00-12:00 each day. Parents register their children for the entire week or for individual days. Children registered for the entire week will receive a kid’s camp T-shirt. “They also save a few dollars by registering for the whole week,” said Larkins-Massiah.
Larkins-Messiah is looking forward to seeing the kids paint and hope the kids will enjoy their time at the camp. “Kids are always fun when they are giggling and laughing,”said Larkins-Massiah. “It is just fun to be around them and watch their painting come to life.”
Larkins-Messiah loves that kids are so carefree and that they don’t worry about the little things that come their way. “Kids love to paint and they don’t worry like adults do about the outcome or if they’re doing it to perfection. They just do it,” said Larkins-Messiah. With such a positive attitude, Larkins-Messiah hopes to continue the Kids Camp in the future, whether is it during the summer or during school breaks.
The camps are $150 per week for the first child and $125 for siblings. The themes and paintings for both weeks are on the Painting With A Twist website. Parents can register on the website and for any additional information or to register multiple siblings, call 615-375-1630.
