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.

Kat was great! At first it appeared an intimidating process but she was warm, kind, and patient. She walked us through each step and in the end we produced pretty good paintings for beginners. The atmosphere and ambience was relaxed and fun-filled. I definitely recommend this place. And will certainly come back.

It was a good experience being in this class we did a beautiful piece of art.My canvas was a bit bigger than the one the instructor was working from but over all it was worth the price of the class.

The instructor explained everything clearly and was very patient. She also circulated the room quite a bit to make sure everyone was on track to complete the painting. I really liked the fact that she was flexible and allowed us to use other colors / explore our creativity. The classroom, apron, and brushes provided were of good quality. Overall, I had an awesome experience.

Fun, relaxing experience. I haven't painted since I was a little kid, so you really don't have to know a thing before walking in. They supply all of the materials, and the instructor (TJ, in my case) was polite, engaging and worked at the class' pace.
