Class Details

It's an Open Studio at Pinot's Palette today.

Open Studio 2-Hour Class. In this class each painter gets to paint WHATEVER they'd like! Doors open 12pm to start selecting your painting. Painting from 12:30-2:30pm. Class will end at 2:30pm allowing our artists to get ready for next classes. Not finished? You can always register for another class and come back to finish your painting. This is a two hour class and artists will let you know if you choose a painting that is 3-hour in length or 2.5 and warn you against selecting artwork that you may have a hard time completing within this class session.

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, or the kids, all ages welcome, to decide what you want to paint (exception: marked upcoming classes on our web calendar can not be painted during open studio. In other words future classes featured on our calendar can not be painted in today's class, no exceptions sorry).

How does it work?
You have 2 Options to choose from during Open Studio Hours:

Option 1) Point and Paint. Find something on our walls (in the room which your class is being held) (except upcoming scheduled classes marked with chalk dates) and work to recreate it with help from an art instructor (all materials and 16x20 canvas provided )

Option 2) 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, are available at the bar and sold separately outside of your seat price. Sodas, juice boxes, hot cocoa and chips all range from $1 to $2. Wine also available by the bottle for a fun day out with friends. Kids, ages 6 and up are most appropriate for open studio.

See you soon. Pre-registration is required to help us ensure appropriate staff on hand, especially for large groups. Hope to see you painting soon!
Upgrade to paint your painting on a 11x17 Wood Palette or 10x30 vertical canvas. Pay at bar for upgrading materials. Get ready to Paint & Have Fun!
