Each photo will be transferred onto a 16”X20” canvas. Our talented artists will walk you through the steps to create your very own Pet Portrait!

A paint and sip class with an extra dose of heart and soul. When you buy a seat in a Painting It Forward class, you're making a donation to a nonprofit or community fundraiser.
Pinot’s Palette Elmhurst offers FUN-ART, with NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! A revolutionary way to enjoy art, sip your favorite drink, meet new people, bond with co-workers, family and friends. All supplies included.
INVITE YOUR FRIENDS and enjoy the step-by-step instructions for a featured craft, led by our local artist. You can follow along as much, or as little, as you’d like. Feel free to choose a different color, add in your own detail or paint another image entirely.
We encourage our guests to arrive 20 minutes prior to the start time of the paint party to allow time to grab a beverage, get ready to paint and settle in at your table. Our paint parties begin at the scheduled start time. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
GROUPS: Let us know any celebrations, and who is in your group via Seating Request.

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!
