Pinots Palette Before - Pinot and Picasso

Craig Charles Beth and Friends made some paintings

The great Picasso once said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” We’ve found the solution to that problem – with our relaxed, fun environment, & expert guidance from our local artists; you can awaken artistic ability that you didn’t realize you had! It doesn’t get much better than this – we let you bring your own snacks & wine at our BYO locations or purchase libations from select locations with bars - and that’s pretty much all you need to bring. We have the art supplies, wine glasses, ice buckets – and talented instructors that will turn you into Van Gogh before you can say Impressionism.

The Pinot Story

Pinot’s Palette (formerly Pinot & Picasso) opened for business on May 6, 2009. Being a new concept to Houston, we started small, with the hopes of having class three nights a week. Before long, word spread, and we now have multiple locations coast to coast, from New York to California.

Less than a year into operations, we made the tough decision to change our name. Research revealed that there was potential for legal issues with using the Picasso name, so before growing our business any bigger we decided to play it safe & make the change. We polled our customers for input (& received over 2,000 suggestions) and have come to be called Pinot's Palette officially since May 2010.

While much has changed since we first opened our doors, our values have stayed true to the core. Our mission is to bring fine art to the masses in a fun way, and to teach our painters the magic of creating their own masterpieces! So come --- Paint. Drink. Have Fun.

Cheers!
Craig, Beth & Charles
