Urban Art Bar is a cool concept, a bar in Southie where those with or without experience with acrylic painting can follow [or not remotely follow] an instructor painting a certain image. You check out their calendar and select the image you want to paint, then just show up, drink, and paint away.
The painting on the night I went was Starry Night, a favorite. For the most part they are not known paintings, just simple, approachable images one could create in a couple of hours.

It’s great to walk around and see how differently everyone interprets the image. And some people clearly focus more on the drinking part. I’d never done acrylic painting and found the experience to be a great introduction, with a fun, supportive atmosphere.
