Painting with a Twist Debuts Unique Entertainment in Sin City

Local Entrepreneur to Open Leading Paint-and-Sip Concept with Las Vegas Agreement; Plans Two More by 2022

February 03, 2020 // // NEW ORLEANS - The nation’s premier and largest paint and sip franchise, Painting with a Twist, announced today its plans to enter Las Vegas with the signing of its first franchise agreement in the city. The studio, which will provide a new thrill in the entertainment capital of the world, will be owned and operated by Las Vegas native Laura Barnett.

Passionate about arts and design herself, Barnett knows firsthand the importance of a creative outlet. Aside from having taught math and English at a local middle school for seven years, Barnett also taught Yearbook, which involved design layouts and creative page design. She’s also a portrait and wedding photographer, all part of the reason Barnett says bringing a fun, creative outlet to the area is exciting for her personally.

“In terms of entertainment, there’s so much to do in Las Vegas, but as a resident, so much is repetitive. If you don’t want a nightclub, gambling or a show, where do you go?” said Barnett. “We’re bringing a new type of escape to the city, one that doesn’t break the bank and isn’t the same old way to relax. Both visitors and Vegas residents will certainly enjoy this new form of entertainment.”

The new studio is expected to open in the Henderson area later this year. Painting with a Twist aims to inspire guests to come together to experience a unique ‘getaway’ that includes friends, paint and the option to drink their favorite beverage during the process. An experience at Painting with a Twist is led by local artists, guests gather to create and socialize in a step-by-step process that transforms bare canvases into fun art.

“We’re continuing to execute our strategic growth plan that includes untapped cities like Las Vegas. Entering this market is exciting as we’re planning to develop at least two more Vegas studios in three years,” said Richard Leveille, Painting with a Twist’s Chief Development Officer. “The national brand is built around fun, social engagement, charity and community service, and with this in mind, Painting with a Twist is a concept that fits perfectly anywhere.”
