People love us! Here's what they've had to say about the Instant Artist experience:

"I never thought I could paint something like that (of course, the wine helped)." -- Sarah 

"Great atmosphere. Melissa was so friendly and made us feel instantly comfortable. Can't wait to do it again!" -- Cathy

"So much fun! I have no painting experience, but, because of the relaxed atmosphere and easy directions, my painting turned out to be a work I'm proud of creating!"  -- Lorna

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

We're a sip and paint experience 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 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 event, bridal shower, bachelorette party, social club, anniversary, fundraisers...or just because!

Check the  calendar to see where and when we'll be next...see you soon!
