Bay Area Pottery Painting Studio: A Creative New Option for Date Night

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — Couples looking for something new to do on date night now have an artistic option: wine and cheese and getting creative. Sharon Frederickson, owner of The Magic Paintbrush, is now hosting “Friday Night Wine and Cheese Gathering” at her Alameda pottery painting studio.

Every Friday from between 7 and 10 pm couples and groups can truly get to know one another over a bottle of wine they bring and snack and a paintbrush provided by The Magic Paintbrush.

“Art is a wonderful form of self-expression and non-verbal communication: it conveys and provokes feelings,” said Fredrickson. “Friends and couples who create art together often share a connection that strengthens their bond.”

The Magic Paintbrush always welcome drop-ins, but they can provide a higher level of service to groups of six or more if they are called in advance.

Families are also encouraged to discover how creating art together can bring parents and kids closer. In addition to pottery painting, the Magic Paintbrush offers creative expression through mosaics and glass fusion in the Bay Area.
