Welcome to Painting Lounge! We are a BYOB Paint & Sip art studio in Midtown offering guided classes to people of all skill levels.

Painting Lounge classes are always in a relaxed, social setting. An experienced artist guides the class step-by-step through replicating each night's featured painting. The process is easy, fun and totally stress-free. All art supplies are included. Many attendees find our classes a therapeutic and convenient way to tap into their creative side.

Our classes are perfect for beginners, so grab your friends, co-workers, fly solo or plan a unique date night. We are happy to announce that we got a liquor license for our Midtown studio, so you can now BYOB (Bring Your Own Beer or Bottle of wine/champagne) to any class!

Painting Lounge, founded in Spring 2011, is an exciting and unique alternative to a typical night out with friends and coworkers. 

Our experienced instructors will guide you step-by-step to complete your next masterpiece. No previous drawing or painting experience required, and canvases usually come with pre-sketched images, allowing students to dive right into the activity. We make it easy, fun, and totally stress free. By the end of the night you will be amazed at the work of art you have created.

The people leading the class were very friendly. We enjoyed the guidance but also the ability to explore and add our own twists to the painting.

We had scheduled this class for our one year anniversary and were excited to do something romantic together. A few weeks before the class, I received a call requesting we reschedule to another time that day. Since it was also Halloween, it was a hectic day but we really wanted to take the class so we moved our plans around for this. We went to the studio at our scheduled time and the teacher said we weren't able to take this class since there was a private party. She was unhelpful and didn't try to accommodate us at all or apologize for the studio's mistake. I would not suggest this studio as they were very disorganized and ruined our anniversary.

I had an absolutely fantastic time at the Midtown Paint and Sip Workshop! It was such a relaxed, creative way to spend a summer afternoon in NYC – particularly accompanied by a few glasses of bubbles.

This class was extremely fun! I took two of my friends as a surprise activity and they loved it. The instructor was very patient and gave clear instructions! Although this was our first time painting, we left the class proud of our final work!

Decided to take this class solo for some weekday fun. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, after a while I was sipping my wine and chatting away, relaxed and painting my 'masterpiece'! Our teacher was particularly nice, she taught us all the basics, and then we were free to create as we pleased. She helped me mix some different colors because I didn't want to follow the color palette of the example piece and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I'm definitely no Monet but I had a fun night and would return with friends or even solo again! Highly recommend it.

I had the best time in the Paint and Sip workshop! I went with my husband and another couple, and it was the perfect date night. We were able to chat and drink while painting, and it was super relaxing! We also had fun music playing in the background which created a really fun atmosphere for painting. We all got really into it, and still have the paintings hung up in our homes! I highly recommend this class.
