Bring your own bottle of wine and spend quality time with dad this Father's Day weekend sipping wine and creating a masterpiece at Painting With A Twist in Greensburg. It's okay if you or dad aren't talented artists. It may be more fun that way! You'll not only have a story to tell, but new home decor to take home!
