Winter makes for an artful landscape as painters come together at the Portuguese-American Club in Oak Bluffs for a step-by-step painting party. Fellow artists enjoy cocktails while they’re guided through a lesson in creating a wintry nightscape. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 8, and the painting starts at 7 p.m. The cost is $40 and includes materials. Seats are taken quickly, so register early at or call 617-864-0263 for information.
