How about learning how to paint while drinking wine? While doing this, you also get the chance to help raise funds for an organization!
Here’s the press release of the Pain and Sip charity event:
Manila, Philippines: – As we become a web-centric world, more online opportunities arise and the love for arts is becoming one of the most-sought activities for kids and kids-at-heart.
Therefore, Eco Hotel Philippines, together with Iris Alonzo, came up with an art workshop called “Paint and Sip.”
Paint and Sip is an instructional painting lesson usually consists of groups and accompanied by wine or other beverages. This event has increased rapidly since 2007. Furthermore, Iris started Paint and Sip in Yangon in July 2017 as a way to raise funds to run a primary school in an isolated village in Mon State. Her event lives on in the Philippines to fund art scholarships and to encourage people to explore their artistic capacities with the help of wine and friends.
