Allegretto Wines hosting Art Bar Feb. 16, May 11
–The tasting room at Allegretto Wines, home of award-winning estate wines in Paso Robles, is hosting “Art Bar,” an afternoon of painting and wine. “This is a great opportunity for people to relax and enjoy some painting lessons from local artist, Heather Millenaar,” said Quin Cody, Director of Hospitality.
The first two Art Bars are scheduled for February 16 and May 11 from 1-3 p.m. both days. The paintings will focus on the beautiful scenery and surroundings that can be seen from the Allegretto Vineyard Resort and the tasting room. Under the skilled guidance of Heather Millenaar, participants will paint scenes that capture their fancy.
The class takes place on the Allegretto Wines patio and the fee includes a glass of Allegretto award winning estate wine from the Paso Robles vineyards.
Heather Millenaar is a local artist, based in Atascadero. Her work is well known for capturing a moment with textured brush strokes and vivid colors. “Being faced with the ever-changing challenge of capturing the scene with just a few colors and brushes is the greatest game while being surrounded by a crowd and rolling with a new environment and energy at every event,” said Millenaar. Among Millenaar’s notable work is the “Woman’s Republic” mural on El Camino Real in Atascadero. The property owner, Mike Zappas, commissioned Millennaar to paint two public murals for his El Camino Real properties.
The February 16 and May 11 Art Bars are the first ventures for the Allegretto tasting room. More Art Bars are in future plans and those dates will be announced as they are scheduled.
The fee is $50 and includes art supplies and the first glass of wine. The Art Bar is being held at the Allegretto Wines tasting room at 2700 Buena Vista Drive, #101, Paso Robles, CA. The class will move inside in the event of rain. Guests are invited to stay after the class and enjoy a snack or light meal ordered from the menu.
