As more people are staying home due to the coronavirus, Painting With A Twist studios in Pooler and Savannah are taking necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the illness.
The paint-and-sip studio is now offering limited-time “Twist At Home Kits” for those who don’t feel comfortable venturing in public. The kits include a 16x20 canvas, paint, brushes, paper plates, napkins, a disposable cup and written directions on how to complete a painting. There are 10 different canvas styles to choose from — including options for children who are home from school.
“For parents trying to occupy their kids home from school, this is a great way to keep them engaged without screens,” said Jessica Hamel, owner of the Painting With A Twist studios in Pooler and Savannah. “And for the more vulnerable members of our community, Twist At Home Kits will hopefully relieve some stress with a creative activity. Just add your own wine.”
Kits will be available for pick-up starting Thursday, March 19, at the studios. The kits are $29. Those interested can register for the “Twist At Home Kits” online.

For now, Painting With A Twist studios are still open for business. Classes are capped at 10 people in accordance with Center for Disease Control guidelines. Art instructors are taking the necessary precautions during this time, including disinfecting the studios and art supplies before and after each class. Additionally, the layouts of the studios are large enough to comfortably support social distancing.
“The health of the community is paramount,” Hamel said. “We are taking this day by day.”
