The Benefits Of PaintingEven with our studio temporarily closed, we're helping to teach others to paint!
We're offering kids' painting kits, as well as virtual painting classes, just like the ones you can take at our studio!
With all of the healthy benefits of painting, NOW is the perfect time for one of our classes!
We’re so thankful to be a part of the Pinot’s Palette franchise, a painting and wine concept that promises that ANYONE can paint!
Our team of instructors have been making their own art for most of their lives, and helping others to do it for years. It’s such a rewarding thing to see someone who hasn’t ever even picked up a paintbrush, learn to make an entire painting of their own in just a 2-3 hour class.
When you make your own art, you get to try something new and learn to express yourself in a whole new way. There’s no wrong way to do it, and here at Pinot’s Palette, you’ll always be encouraged to make your painting YOUR way! Reach inside yourself and find your inner-artist then get to work, showing who you are.
Our painting and wine concept is perfect for first-time artists who may think they “can’t” paint, but we’re here to show them that they can! That’s why we’re so thankful for our Pinot’s Palette classes!
Check out this list of (just some of) the benefits of painting and get started, today!
****** The Benefits Of Painting ******
** It Improves Your Emotional AND Mental Health
Experts have spoken of the benefits of art therapy in relieving various psychological ailments, including stress, depression, and anxiety. Painting classes provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where students can pour their energy into their artwork and let go of their tension. Many students also express their emotions through their work, which is highly therapeutic.
** Learn How To Relax In A Stressful World
We’ve heard so many of our customers tell us how our classes make their day so much better. They come in for a class after a long day at work or running from practice to practice with the kids, and they leave the studio with a smile on their faces and a piece of handmade artwork in their hands.
Did you know that you, quite literally, can’t paint and think about life’s problems at the same time?
In fact, we did some research on the subject after hearing so many positive things from our customers and found some interesting info.

** You Discover That There Is More Than One Right Answer.
When you create a work of art, you get to firmly grasp the idea of multiple points of view and learn that there’s no real “one way” to do it. There’s no right or wrong way to make art and that’s the beauty of it; Where else in life is there really not a right answer or correct way to do something?
Knowing the all you have to do is put brush to canvas and have at it, will give you a feeling of calmness and leave you eager to create more YOUR way.
** Art builds confidence.
Trying something new will ALWAYS bolster some sort of confidence, whether you’re good at it or not. Just putting yourself out there and being brave enough to try a new activity is a big deal and something that many people shy away from.
Remember, there isn't just one right way to make art, and you can feel pride in your artistic creations. Have fun making your art in different ways each time, knowing that whatever you do is only going to make you better.
The better you become at your new-found activity, the more your confidence will grow
** Learn To Express Feelings Without Having To Use Words
This goes along with the mental and emotional health benefits we talked about above.
It’s nice to know that there are other ways of expressing yourself without having to talk about what you’re feeling. While some of us want to sit and talk with a good listener or therapist, many of us keep our feelings bottled up inside. We might not want to bother others with our feelings, or may just not know how to talk about them or what to say;
When you make art, you can express yourself ANY way you want to. Whether it’s a direct visual of how you’re feeling or just a light interpretation of what you want to say, it doesn’t matter… You’re still getting all of those emotions out of your mind and onto a canvas.
** You Get To Experience Something New
The fear of the unknown and the fear of failure often tempt you to say “No” to anything new; But pushing out of your comfort zones is actually good for you in so many ways.
Trying new things increases confidence and self-esteem, makes you learn more about your limits, and opens up new opportunities.
When you add painting (or another creative activity) into your life, you'll see exactly what we're talking about. You'll feel less stressed as you're able to relax and let your mind concentrate on something enjoyable and easy for a while.
Right now, when we're under so much stress with the uncertainty of all that's going on in the world, who couldn't use something to help them feel better?
We can't wait to see you all when we reopen and we're thinking of you and your families.
Stay safe and healthy, and for everyone who's out there risking their lives at their jobs, we thank you for all that you do.
