Around 20 Webster University students got the chance to attend an art class at Pinot’s Palette, where local artist Renee Fletcher guided them through a night of painting on Wednesday, Feb. 25.
“I had been to Pinot’s Palette before, and I thought it would be a great opportunity for other students,” said Katya Ehrenmüller, a student who organized the event and works for Campus Activities at Webster.
Food, fun and acrylic was in the air as the students snacked on fruit and cheese, and created colorful landscape paintings of the St. Louis Arch and Mississippi River.
“My experience at Pinot’s was great because the instructor made the project simple and easy for everyone to do,” said Webster student Brennen Almus.
Campus Activities arranged the event as one of many to help students relieve stress over the upcoming midterm week.
“I had a wonderful, therapeutic night,” said Webster student Laura Dohner. “This came up at just the right time. More awareness of activities like this would be awesome.”
Pinot’s Palette is located on Allen Ave., about five minutes from Webster University. They provide art supplies, wine glasses and ice buckets for class participants, while food and drink is “BYO.” Pinot’s Palette also holds regular classes and hosts private events which anyone can register for online, by phone or at the store.]
