Class Schedule: Tuesday-Sunday: 1-3, 4-6, and 7-9. Schedule subject to change as customers needs dictates. If no one signs up for a class, I may not be in the studio.
You don't have to know how to draw to be able to paint. There is no drawing in painting, just shapes and colors in a recognizable context. Anything of an exact shape like the wine glass or an animal is traced with a stencil and then we go back to the fun color part of painting.
Don't see the painting you want to do on the calendar? Contact us by email, email@example.com or text, 559-367-2084 and ask if anyone has signed up for the day/time you wanted to paint. If no one has signed up for the class yet, we can change the painting for you. To see all the paintings in one place, go to the Gallery tab at the top of the website.
There is no age requirement. Just a developmental requirement. Students have to be able to write legibly (hand eye coordination) and follow instruction in a school like setting. I had a four year old paint with me that blew me away but also had 10 year olds that couldn't quite focus. Only you would know if this is something your children can handle.
Please do not bring alcohol into the studio as we don't have a liquor license. If we had one, kids would be banned from the studio because we'd become a bar. Every week we hold painting classes hosted at your favorite restaurants where all your favorite beverages and food can be served. Check the calendar!
48 hours in advance is allowed but is subject to a $10.00 per person fee.
The Artist In Me is great for parties! The party favor is a painting you will keep forever and always remember where you were and who you were with.
We don't reserve the studio for private parties but your group can join any class as we seat up to 25 people. During the week you will probably be by yourselves but the weekend tends to fill up. If you are signing up far enough in advance, and you're the first to signup, you can choose the painting and who ever signs up after you has to do your painting. You can email us and tell us you're a party and we'll make sure you're all sitting together.
You can bring snacks and cupcakes for your guests and you can eat them during one of the drying sessions. It is so cute to put the snacks and drinks in a bag or little box to place on each seat for your guests.
We can also do mobile classes held at your home or a restaurant banquet room. However, not all paintings are available for mobile classes because without all the air dryers it would take up to an hour to dry each layer. So call to find out which painting we could do.
The classes are priced based on the time required to complete each painting and what time/day the class is held. Simple paintings take two hours to complete while paintings with more colors and layers take three hours. There is NO necessary skill level needed for ANY of the paintings, just more time is needed to complete the multiple layered paintings. Classes during the day are discounted by $10.00 because they aren't very busy.
A 2 hour class, simple painting: before 5pm is $25.00.
A 3 hour class, multiple layer painting: before 5pm is $35.00.
A 4 hour class, many objects painting: before 5 pm is $55.00.
A 2 hour class, simple painting: after 5pm is $35.00.
A 3 hour class, multiple layer painting: after 5 PM is $45.00.
A 4 hour class, many objects painting: after 5 pm is $65.00.
You don't have to bring anything but your enthusiasm! We provide everything you need for your artistic expression including the canvas, paint, paint brushes and an apron. Let us provide you with the tools, environment and creative guidance needed for you to create a memory not just a piece of art.
