Unwind and Create From the Comfort of Home with Painting with a Twist’s ‘Twist at Home Kits’
THE WOODLANDS, TX – “Painting with a Twist has always been a place where people can relieve stress, have a good time, take a moment to escape two or three hours while they were working on a painting and the Let the world melt away, “said Algy Irvin, painter at Twist.

My personal snack
I had the opportunity to film at home and I found it so much fun! When the weather was nice, I could paint outside, which was a big advantage for me. When I saw that this was my first time twisting, I was a little nervous to begin with. However, that feeling of discomfort immediately disappeared when I hit play on the instructional video.
The video opened with a sweetly smiling coworker named Jillian who took me through a breathing exercise to transform my mind from the energy of a busy day into a more grounded headspace. She showed me how to mix colors to get the perfect shade, which brush to use and when to clean it, what strokes to make and how to fill them in. Her constant affirmation that I couldn’t mess anything gave up I have the confidence to really try, as if I were a visionary creating an original piece on a whim.
After the first layer was done, the painting took about ten to fifteen minutes to dry before I could continue. Jillian led me through a mini chair yoga session that included stretches to relax the mind and body.
I was happy with the result of my painting, but most of all I was grateful for the experience. It gave me a moment to really be present. In these times, that feeling is priceless.
