Who let the GIRLS OUT?

You know those friendships that can withstand whatever life throws at them? The kind where, no matter how much time has passed since you were last together, you can always pick up exactly where you left off? Friends like those are some of life’s greatest gifts! True friends understand that a hectic schedule (or COVID) doesn’t have to damage your friendship, and maybe you have no problem going months — or even years — without seeing each other. But still, time spent toget ... Read More

If you work in an office where no one wants to have to buy a dress or rent a tux for the company holiday party, then we have a party idea for you! BYOB (eggnog?) and snacks (Christmas cookies?) to enjoy while you paint your own holiday art. We'll show everyone how, so no art experience is needed. Afterwards, you can use everyone's paintings to literally "deck the halls" at the office. This is the instant cure for office beige syndrome.

About our ARTists!

If you haven't been to our studio yet, you have a great experience awaiting you with our artists. We staff each event with talented artists who are equally good at painting and providing a relaxed, fun paint experience. They do an example painting to put on display before you even begin so you know where the class is headed. If you decide to do your own thing, that's fine, but the artist on stage is going to lead the group to a complete painting like the display! They will give you step by step ... Read More
