Welcome to Instant Artist

We are Cortland's premier paint & sip studio located at 75 East Court Street in the historic Cortland Corset Building. We also host events in awesome bars and bistros in the Cortland, and Ithaca surrounding areas with mobile off-site painting events. Have a good time and a couple of drinks with friends while creating your very own masterpiece guided by a local artist!

You are creative (yes, you!). And now you have an outlet for expressing that creativity -- The Instant Artist. 

We're a sip and paint studio on a mission to help you unleash your Inner Artist. At each event, a local artist will teach you how to paint the featured painting. It's really that easy. You just show up and follow along as our artist provides all materials and guides you through step-by-step instructions in creating your own unique masterpiece.

Events are held at our Cortland NY studio as well as local bars and bistros all around Central New York where you can enjoy your favorite alcoholic beverages, food and a fun night of socializing with friends having a relaxing, creative time.

Perfect way to enjoy a birthday party, girls night out, date night, team building, corporate events, bridal shower, bachelorette party, social club, anniversary, fundraisers...or just because! We also do private parties.
