The therapeutic benefits of Painting & Sipping

Kelly LaCava has been sharing her love for art with the world through art entertainment events since 2012. She was first introduced to the fabulous combo of paint and wine in Park City when she helped open The Paint Mixer, the first ever paint and wine bar in the state of Utah.  Kelly managed The Paint Mixer, which quickly grew into a second location in Salt Lake City, from 2012-2016.  Kelly moved to Fayetteville, West Virginia in 2016 and began teaching art classes for the Fayetteville Arts Coalition, a local nonprofit in the community, to both adults and children. A few years later in 2018, Kelly began her own business, Wild and Wonderful Paint Parties. She has since helped hundreds of delighted participants of all ages craft their own works of art through corporate team building events, birthday and bachelorette parties, and youth summer camps all around West Virginia.  Kelly is a self taught artist with a chemistry background, who came to art as a means of stress relief and introspection while she discovered that a career as a full time chemist wasn't for her.  Kelly's favorite thing about teaching art classes is helping others go through the same stress relief and personal learning process that she so enjoys- along with good company, great music, a paint brush in one hand & a glass of wine in the other.
