Donna Mittendorf Opens Painting with a Twist, Unique Art & Social Studio

pwatAspiring to bring a new kind of art to Pearland, Texas, local entrepreneur, Donna Mittendorf, is opening Painting with a Twist of Pearland, Texas, a new place where friends come together to paint, drink wine and discover their inner artist.

A pioneer in the Paint and Sip industry, Painting with a Twist, located at 9223 Broadway St., Suite 101, Pearland, Texas 77584 is part of a fast-growing national franchise that provides guests a unique ‘getaway’ through art. A Painting with a Twist class includes friends, paint and the option to BYOB. Led by local art instructors, guests paint on 16” by 20” canvases using paint and brushes provided by the studio. The artwork ranges from landscapes, abstracts and cityscapes, to creative renderings of animals, iconic buildings and florals. Friends gather for an evening of laughs, creativity and camaraderie as they create one-of-a-kind pieces of art to take home and, often, discover a newfound talent.

Donna is a former commercial banker who decided to open a Painting with a Twist in La Marque, Texas 2.5 years ago. This endeavor has been so rewarding, she has decided to expand to Pearland. She is looking forward to becoming a more integral part of this community and bringing new opportunities for adults and children to discover this expanded world of art and entertainment.

“Our new studio is designed to provide guests with a fun night out—a chance to escape from reality,” said Mittendorf. “We are offering lighthearted entertainment that merges creativity and a social gathering where friends come together to create memorable pieces of artwork.”

Although the concept of Paint and Sip has been around for years, Painting with a Twist founders Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney have perfected it into a successful business formula. As the art and wine trend continues to pick up steam, Painting with a Twist, the pioneer in the Paint and Sip segment, has both guests and franchisees alike lining up at the doors.

In keeping with the founders’ fundraising roots, Painting with a Twist of Pearland is passionate about supporting the local community. With the Painting with a Purpose program, Painting with a Twist Pearland will donate 50 percent of their proceeds from a jointly held class to a local 501(c)3 organization one time each month.

In addition to supporting the local community, Painting with a Twist Pearland also offers private parties for corporate outings, bachelorette parties, sorority functions, date nights, birthday parties and special events.
