BYOB Paint Shops

Maybe you've noticed a Facebook post or two with friends at a trendy shop painting away and enjoying hors d'oeuvres. BYOB painting classes and studios have been popping up around town offering the perfect chance to get those creative juices flowing and do something out of the ordinary!

How It Works:

Each location offers classes you may sign up for individually or with a friend (recommended)—or you may book a party for a group (child or adult birthday parties, baby or wedding showers or just a night out with friends).

Step 1: Decide either to book a party and assemble your group or to participate in one of the shop’s public nights. You may attend by yourself to meet new friends, or bring a friend, spouse or relative to join you. TIP: Some shops offer parent/child and couple’s nights with a "pair of paintings.”

  • If you plan a party, you will choose one painting design, and everyone creates the same thing, each selecting her own colors and personal touches to make it unique.
  • If you attend a public night, visit the shop’s calendar to see samples of the painting choices and choose to attend according to the schedule that works for you and the work of art that inspires you.

Step 2: Visit the company Facebook page, Groupon, Living Social and coupon sites—many of these shops run specials!

Step 3: Make reservations.

Before the Class: Consider the work of art in advance and think about where you'd like to display it and which colors to use. Teachers will help with color selection, but it helps to have some ideas before you begin.

At the Class: Bring your own refreshments and snacks. Remember to take a few photos while you’re painting. The instructor helps you choose colors and explains each step in the painting process thoroughly to help you create your own work of art. You may be flexible in choosing your own hues, style and layout for the art.
