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!

What safety measures are in place at the studio?
The entire staff is vaccinated and are masked when moving around the studio with our customers. We sterilize all surfaces between each class (tables, stools, coat racks & cubbies, counters, bathrooms, brushes, etc.). We sanitize our aprons after every use and offer plastic ones if guests prefer. We use temperature stickers in our dishwasher that lets us know the temperature reached 160 degrees or hotter to ensure any possible virus traces are eradicated. To remain in compliance with Illinois mandates, customers will need to wear mask to enter the studio and when you are up walking around. We have complimentary masks available if you need one. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the studio for your use.
