Enjoy cocktails while you create your own art piece guided by an experienced artist! We host painting events at our BYOB art studio at 75 East Court St, Cortland NY or we can bring the party to you around Central New York with a mobile event! 

Instant Artist is a paint and sip experience serving the Cortland and Ithaca surrounding areas. We have a studio in Cortland where you can sign up for a class and BYOB. We also are a traveling painting studio and can set up private events in local bars, restaurants, lodges and we can even set up in your HOME. 

We provide all necessary materials and step by step instruction for you to create a specific painting project that you take home at the end of the event…. and all while sipping on your favorite beverage.

NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY… events are taught with first time painters in mind. Paintings events usually last approximately 2 to 2.5 hours.

What better way to celebrate a birthday, bachelorette party, bridal shower, baby shower, girls night out, children’s party, fundraisers, corporate team building, or family reunions, then painting socially with your friends!
