Painting With a Twistand Jefferson Street Pub are teaming up to keep Festival International funded and free for the public.

Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. Jefferson Street Pub is opening its doors to a Painting With a Twist class. Twist is a recreational art studio where students can paint their own painting based on the template used that day — think of those paint-by-numbers things from childhood but way more awesome. This class has the choice between one called "Live it Up" and one called "Festival Flair." The latter shows a woman dancing to music with hand drums in the foreground and the former is two abstract figures in geometric shapes dancing under a knotted sun. Students are helped by an instructor and have freedom to learn and choose their colors.

The fee from the class will be donated to Festival International to ensure its future as a free, multicultural, multinational and multigenerational festival that exposes the public to the best music from around the world.

The class is $75. This price includes instruction, supplies, hors d’ouevres, unlimited tap beer and house wines and a nifty piece of original art to take home and brag about. Even if your reach into art extends as far as doodling during meetings, you can paint these. Note: don’t drink so much that you clean your brushes in your beer. That would be unfortunate and probably toxic.

Painting With a Twist is a franchise borne by two women in Katrina’s aftermath. It has exploded as a franchise and in keeping with its community focus does a lot of fundraising for nonprofits and charities. The Lafayette franchise has raised more than $30,000 for local organizations.

To make your reservation call 234-9783 or go to its website. Seating is very limited.
