Rhode Island is home to Providence, the creative capital, but the state’s creativity doesn’t end there. You, too, can get artsy across bars and paint studios in Rhode Island, or even from the comfort of your own home. Grab a glass of wine and your paint smock, because paint and wine events are the perfect idea for a girls’ night out, a date night, or an afternoon with the family!
Rachel and Paul Araujo’s studio offers the perfect inspiration for painting with its beautiful scenes of the Pawtucket Falls along the Blackstone River.
