Street Samaritans is a 501c3 grassroots nonprofit organization that serves people experiencing homelessness in Chicago. Our mission is to uplift Chicago’s unhoused and disenfranchised by building a culture of transparent and genuine relationships while focusing on the centralization of resources and providing realistic yet innovative solutions tailored to an individuals needs. We envision Chicago as a community of love and support, where all unhoused individuals can live in dignity and be led on a path of fulfilling their potential without judgement. Street Samaritans believes that building supportive relationships with those whom we serve recognizes their dignity, helps to build confidence, and can become the foundation for journeys of personal change. We listen closely to each person’s story. We provide practical resources. We are patient and consistent. We hope the relationships we build over time will empower each person to consider options based on his or her own strengths. We invite you to support our mission by exploring your creative side with Pinot's Palette!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION: ALSO SEE CANCELLATION POLICY BELOW
We encourage our guests to arrive 30 minutes before 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. It's MUCH MORE FUN when we start together. Very difficult to catch up late parties.
Paint, drink & have fun with us at Pinot's Palette Logan Square! At our sip and paint parties, guests enjoy a 'no art experience required' paint party & all art supplies are included! You'll be led by our talented local artists who will guide you step-by-step to create the featured painting.
Our paint events are more party than art class. Though our artists will guide you to create the featured painting, this is your masterpiece! You can follow along as much, or as little, as you’d like. Feel free to choose a different color from our paint cart, add in your own detail or paint another image entirely. We encourage creativity!
The more the merrier, INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! We paint, drink and have fun!
We are located at 2768 N. Milwaukee Ave, a half-block south of Diversey Avenue and steps from the Blue Line Logan Square L stop (exit towards Spaulding). Coming from the north or south? We're a mile west of I-94 (exit at California from the north, Diversey Ave from the south). Street parking is available all along Milwaukee, Diversey, and Kimball Avenues.

Click on the painting of your choice. To reserve a seat, click the ‘Register’ button and follow the on-screen directions to complete the order.

Is there an age limit for your regular public classes?
We welcome families and children ages 6 years and above for any of our daytime paint parties. While our evening classes that begin after 5 pm are structured for adults, we do allow guests aged 13 – 17 to participate if they are accompanied by an adult. All guests must be at least 21 years of age to purchase or consume alcohol.
What should I wear to paint?
No dress code here...dress casual or dress up! We provide all guests with an apron, but painters have been known to get involved in their work of art. Should any acrylic paint get on your clothes, it can typically be washed out within 60 seconds. If allowed to set longer, the paint may be permanent.
I don’t have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our paint parties are intended for beginners, but are also fun for more seasoned artists. Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting. You can follow along as much, or as little, as you’d like. Feel free to choose a different color from our paint cart, add in your own detail or paint another image entirely. We encourage creativity and there are no mistakes! Acrylic paint dries quickly, so making changes or perfecting your painting is easy to do.
Is there parking near your studio?
Street parking is available all along Milwaukee, Kimball and Diversey Avenues. While parking in some areas is free, most parking is $2/hr. Using the ‘Park Chicago’ app makes paying for parking a breeze. We are also just steps from the Blue Line Logan Square stop (exit the L platform towards Spaulding Ave).
