Review of Whet Your Palette (Anchorage)

During Fall Break the older kiddos and I decided to try a Mini-Master’s Class at Whet Your Palette in Anchorage. The classes are for ages 4-15 and depending on the group they may be divided by age and skill. I called to make reservations a day ahead, but walk-ins are welcome. It was $20 to paint a pumpkin and my own version of The Screamer, a famous creepy painting (which I assume relates to the Halloween Season). It is an option to drop your children off and pick them up at the end of the session which last 2 hours, but I wanted to paint too. I asked if I could participate in the class as well and I was welcomed. I way exceed the 15 year old age limit, but not by much. Ha!

The house was beautiful! We took a little look around and settled into our seats. The kids were ready to get messy. We took the Art Apron photo Op and got down to business. The pictures speak for themselves.
They provided refreshments and periodic breaks. My 9 year old boys had a blast and really enjoyed the fruits of their labor. My 7 year old girl grew a bit impatient. I believe it may have been due to the advanced level of painting we were doing. I noticed the other paintings for Mini Master Class’ were of cute little pumpkins and cartoonish type things. I’m think we would have had much more luck with that type of subject. Will we do it again? Absolutely!

This outing is not just for kids. Check out this link for a variety of classes, including the adult classes that allow you to bring your own adult beverages.
