I've done paint nights a hand full of times, a couple different places and this one is my favorite! Cozy, nice people and the restaurant downstairs is the bomb digity! Although we went this last time, November 11th (can't remember the holiday), but no dining options available... kinda weird and disappointing! But the painting experience was still fab!

When trying to book a reservation, I didn’t get a call back for several days. When we did finally get booked, we were told that they need a minimum number and they would call me to confirm. No one ever called so we decided to go anyways. Luckily, the studio was open when we got there. But the artist helping us kept getting mad that we weren’t painting exactly the art in the way she showed us.

Great experience. Date outing for our Anniversary. We then went out to dinner on the water front for our anniversary. Beautiful memories of our 7th Anniversary.

The painting space is a little cramped so it was hard to really see the instructor but we had fun. The choice of music was instrumental so that was a little different than the other paint and wine class I've gone to. Food was really good but very limited selection of wine.

The instructor was really helpful and patient. Encouraging for us to do our best. Would love to go again!

From Our Editors

If Open Arts Studio’s huge array of classes seems a bit eclectic, it’s partly a reflection of the diverse interests of its founder, John Armstrong. An intent student of visual arts since childhood, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in music and a master’s degree in music and classical vocal performance; today, he teaches both drawing and music classes.

Armstrong, his wife Lucy, and their staff of instructors approach learning through three key elements: technique, creativity, and fun. They use this template to cultivate skill within a noncompetitive atmosphere combined with a structured curriculum—for instance, drawing teachers use the open-arts drawing method to help kids break down objects into easily grasped curves, angles, and shapes while encouraging them to develop a unique style of their own. Artwork lines the studio’s halls, and an exhibition with cookies, juice, and coffee punctuates each session with a chance to share students’ work with friends, family, and agents looking for the next big thing in crayon drawing.
