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 instructor was engaging, helpful and had great music on. It was a bit tight even though the class wasn’t full.

So much fun! Very easy going atmosphere, while also being super informative for newcomers and inexperienced painters. Our instructor, Sabrina, was really helpful in addition to being incredibly entertaining the entire time. Would definitely go back again.
