Happy hour makes everything better. Pinot’s Palette has made good use of this universal truth with their winning pairing of wine and painting with friends. Their program has become a favorite across the nation, drawing crowds for birthdays and bachelorette parties alike. Now, prepare for even more fun: Every third Wednesday from April through September, join Pinot’s Palette and the Houston Downtown District at Main Street Square for happy hour al fresco, beneath one of the city’s favorite public art installations, Trumpet Flower.

Pinot’s Palette will provide canvases and paint, and artist instructors will guide you through a featured painting as you sip on wine and discover your inner artist. At the end of the evening, you get to take your masterpiece home. You’re sure to be inspired by Trumpet Flower, an outdoor canopy structure that was designed by Houston artist Patrick Renner and constructed by the Flying Carpet Collective. The installation is part of Art Blocks, a fantastic public art initiative in Main Street Square.
