Bechtler By Night: Paint 'N Sip

Bechtler By Night: Paint 'N Sip




Art enthusiasts across the city of Charlotte have made #BechtlerByNight the premiere art event to look forward to the third Friday of every month. Friday, March 16, the Bechtler will provide a night of entertainment with Paint 'N Sip.

Mark your calendars for March's edition of Bechtler By Night when we bring back the always popular Paint 'N Sip! Our specially-trained artist teachers will lead you through the process of creating a fantastic canvas painting that you can take home with you at the end of the night. There are two sessions, one at 5:30 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. Each session costs $20 and includes all materials and supplies. Click here to sign up for the 5:30 session, and click here to sign up for the 7:30 session. If you can't make Paint 'N Sip, head to the lobby to make your own clovers and rainbows.
