Calling All Artists!Pinot's Palette, a leader in the paint-and-sip industry, offers talented local artists an opportunity to bring art to the community through a fun and entertaining atmosphere.
The West Loop will soon be home to a Pinot's Palette studio and we need an energetic, collaborative team of professional artists to instruct and assist our fun-filled painting events! Guests will follow your step-by-step instruction while they paint on their own gallery stretched canvases with studio quality acrylics.

- Ongoing training, wine tastings/product testing and quarterly (fun) team building events!
