New Sherman Shop Has People Learning To Paint

SHERMAN, TX -- Dreary weather made for a perfect day to stay inside and get creative, and that is just what a couple dozen women did at a new downtown shop.

Members and supporters of Women Rock, a non-profit that pays for women to get mammograms and supports breast cancer survivors, came to the new Painting With a Twist store  on North Travis Street on Saturday afternoon.

The shop just opened up this week. Owner Tedra Franklin of Denison says the women paid to take the class, and half of the proceeds will go back to the organization.

With an instructor at the front of the class, the women were working on making a painting that includes the words "dancing in the rain, she discovered the rainbow."

The "twist" is you can bring wine to drink while you paint. The franchise is designed for private parties and events, and the original was started several years ago in Louisiana. Franklin says Women Rock is a neighbor that will move from an office in Kelly Square to the nearby 200 block of North Travis.
