It's Open Studio at Pinot's Palette today.
Unlike our traditional step-by-step instructor-led art class with an art instructor on stage... Open Studio time is designed to give you more flexibility and freedom.
This is your chance to decide what you'd like to paint!
How does it work?
You have 3 Options to choose from during Open Studio Hours:
(Each option includes all the supplies you need to complete a 16x20 Canvas painting within a 2-hour time slot).
Option 1) Self-Guided Instructions.
Select from numerous paint designs; and then with the help of an instructor (and read from self-guided instructions) to help complete your painting with the assistance of an art instructor on hand to help.
Option 2) Point and Paint. Find something on our walls and do your best to copy it with help from an art instructor (all materials and 16x20 canvas provided but without self guided paint instructions...)
Option 3) Be the Artist. We'll provide everything you need for a fun day out: the brushes, the paints, apron, music and your own bartender then sit down with some music and start to paint from your own imagination... Have an idea in your head, this is the time to paint it into reality.
The bar is always open during all open studio times. Alcohol, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks available but not included in your seat price. Wine also available by the bottle for a fun day out with friends. Kids, ages 8 and up, are also welcome to come paint during any open studio hours. And you are welcome to drop & shop ages 8+ meaning you can drop off the kids and get some errand done and pick them up at the end of class.
See you soon. Pre-registration is required to help us ensure appropriate staff on hand especially for large groups.
The Perfect Night Out
Enjoy drinks, upbeat music and hanging out with your favorite people while you paint! It's as fun for first-time painters as it is for experienced artists.
From the moment you walk in, the mood is light, the music is fun and the conversation comes easy!
Easy to Do
You don't need to be a seasoned painter — we make it easy for everyone to find their inner artist!
You'll get seats with all your friends, even if you book separately. Just tell us your friends' names when you register.
Paint Your Way
There's no rule that says you have to follow the artist's steps. It's your art, so paint it however you like!
