Paint the northern lights on a silk scarf. It's easy - no artistic skill required. Perfect for beginners. At Paint a Scarf Alaska you'll enjoy: • A relaxing time of painting by a rushing mountain stream • Friendly instruction from professional silk artist Gina Murrow • A tour of Gina's log cabin chalet with its loft studio and soaring rock fireplace • Breathtaking mountain views • Unlimited refreshments and Alaskan High Tea service • A memorable time with friends and family We meet in a traditional Alaskan log home on a bubbling creek - just 30 minutes from downtown Anchorage. On sunny days we paint by the creek. When it's chilly we paint indoors next to a soaring rock fireplace. Your three-hour experience includes instruction, supplies and Alaskan High Tea - a light meal featuring salad, mini-sandwiches, refreshments and cookies hot from the oven. Great for families and friends to enjoy together. Go home with a scarf to wear - and a story to tell. Paint a Scarf is open six days a week all summer long (closed Sunday). We offer a midday session from noon to 3 p.m., and a Midnight Sun session from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Minimum of 2 painters required. We are located in Chugiak just off the North Birchwood exit, just half an hour from downtown Anchorage.

We really enjoyed painting! It's super easy and even though we (4 of us) choose the same pattern, we all came out with something very unique and beautiful! Definitely recommend. Anyone can do it!

The settings are lovely...but sometimes they use a venue in the city. You learn how to paint a unique Alaskan scarf that is made out of pure silk. I love the Northern lights design. I enjoyed it so much, I have been back 3 times..and...More

My husband and I did the "Pub Night'' at the Hilton in Anchorage. We had so much fun. It was easier than I thought it would be. These ladies are super friendly and super helpful. I would recommend doing this! The scarves turned out beautifully!

We usually don't run Pub in the summer - we do Premium out at our cabin in Chugiak. We are planning to start Pub in September in Phoenix.

The Tea shop and FireTap restaurant are about 20 min. from downtown. Go to the Paint a Scarf website for alternate locations and dates for the activity.
