    “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” you ask. “I don’t know…See a movie?

Choose a unique, wallet-friendly date night this weekend – our BYOB painting sessions! The $15 price includes an intimate setting, an art lesson from Caldecott Honoree R. Gregory Christie, and artwork you painted side-by-side with your date. Our BYOB painting sessions are every weekend at two different time slots, which gives you flexibility to pick which time is more convenient for you both. Come to a 4-6 PM session and grab dinner afterwards, or meet here for a 7-9PM session for a beverage and good conversation.   Find out what makes our sessions special below!   Relax Our cozy atmosphere and welcoming environment allows you the chance to enjoy your own company and meet new people from the community. Give yourself a break from the hustle and bustle of the work week and come express yourself in our studio. People praise our class setting because it allows for personal help. An average party hosts no more than 20 students. This allows Mr. Christie to help anyone with specific painting tips and techniques. It’s a chance to have fun and learn at the same time.

We have a handful of upscale options to choose from, and we focus on quality and the learning experience more than perfection. Mr. Christie says, “Usually people are surprised to see you start with a white canvas. They say ‘Oh, you aren’t going to sketch it…we aren’t going to trace it?’ You really surprise yourself at the end because you walk away with something...
