The debut of Wine & Design DC was very well received. The art instructor for both sold out sessions that day (5 PM/7 PM) was Courtney Savoy AKA "The Artist". Courtney is a well known art educator and artist in the DC Metropolitan area. The attendees had the task of creating a city skyline of their choice with multiple references provided to them such as NYC, Washington, DC, Atlanta & Chicago sky lines. However, attendees could feel free to paint whatever they wanted and wherever the paint and paint brush guided them. Guests sipped onBirthday Cake Wine flavors "Coffee Cake" (Red Wine) and "Cheesecake" (White Wine) while also enjoying desserts (cookies, brownies, pasties & cinnamon pin wheels). 

Wine & Design DC would like to thank Taste Art GalleryBirthday Cake WineCourtney Savoy & Frederick Franklin Films.
