For Clement, 53, her new business is a chance to spread her passion with as many people as possible. A painter and art teacher for more than 25 years, she began The Artist Bar two months ago.

“I want to bring art to as many people as possible and I believe with this ‘paint and sip’ concept,” she said. “It is best, due to the guest having a taste of the grape) that I take the party to them, in the comfort and safety of their neighborhood .”

“It’s just a fun, relaxing way to spend an evening and meet new people,” she continued. “Drinking wine and making art -- what’s not to like? The artist in me is saying it’s what I am meant to do.”
