It’s been 123 years since Vincent Van Gogh last picked up a paint brush, but at LivingSocial his genius is still being honored every single day.
Over 4,000 folks have chosen to recreate Van Gogh’s Starry Night masterpiece during 918 F Street’s best-selling class Sipping and Painting. This two hour hands-on painting class led by local artists pairs you with a canvas and half bottle of wine to bring out your inner Van Gogh. What began as a mere seven sessions has snowballed into a 15-a-week series due to popular demand.
Over 24,000 guests have sipped and painted, using more than 1,100 gallons of paint and nearly 7,000,000 sq. inches of canvas. In addition an astonishing 275,859.93 ounces of wine has been consumed, 400 birthdays have been celebrated and two marriages have been proposed.
