The PERFECT Family Reunion Activity!

Finding an activity that will keep all the generations of your family entertained is no easy feat, but that's exactly what our painting classes do! We've had the honor of creating fun memories for many families' kids, adults, grandparents and even great-grandparents. This summer, look for our "Family Friendly" classes that fit every age, or if everyone in your family is over 18 then you can book any class on our Calendar page. If your family is large, then you can book a private party room and pick the painting for everyone in your family. We even have several monogrammed and "family tree" paintings to commemorate your special gathering. Visit our "Party Info" page for details.

Brighten up any room with flowers!

One of the best ways to brighten up any room is to add spring blooms, but real flowers won't last forever. Instead, paint your own painting of flowers to last all season! Look on our calendar for new spring paintings that'll add a pop of color to any room.

Plan a date with mom!

Give your mother a unique gift— a painting created by you! We promise it will look better than the finger painting you did in Kindergarten, even if you still can’t draw stick figures. Most of our customers have never painted before, so our artists can help you, no problem. Find a painting your mom would like on our Calendar page, and get ready to see your mom smile on Mother’s Day— or maybe laugh, but either way it will be a memorable gift!

Creative Gift Ideas

You don't have to be "good at art" to paint a meaningful gift for someone. We'll help you surprise them (and possibly even yourself!) with your hidden creative talents. But, of course, it is always the thought that counts the most about a personalized gift. For example, if you know someone who got married, engaged, or had a baby this year; we can help you incorporate their special date and/or monogram into your painting. If their favorite color is blue, we can help you incorporate that color in place of another color in a painting that maybe didn't even have blue in it. Just ask, and we'll help you paint a beautiful, personalized gift!

Afterwards, you can use everyone's paintings to literally "deck the halls" at the office. This is the instant cure for office beige syndrome.
