During painting classes, students mime an artist’s brushwork to paint a featured picture on a 16”x20” gallery-wrap canvas, with acrylic paints, brushes, and aprons provided. As they sip wine or another libation brought from home using provided cups, they compose subjects such as wild horses, nighttime beach scenes, and dandelion tufts blowing in the wind. Check the calendar to view upcoming paintings.

Sketch and Sip

Far from being an artist possessed, Patty Sisco derives the same benefit from painting as she does from a long bubble bath. “All you are thinking about is your brushstrokes, not your bills,” she told the Bloomingdale-Riverview Patch, speaking to the therapeutic value of her classes at Sketch and Sip. These sessions supply students of all backgrounds—including those who have never before lifted a brush—with canvas, tools, and a step-by-step demonstration on how to create their own vibrant masterpieces. As they work, Patty encourages her guests to imbibe drinks they’ve brought from home and plays serene music to prompt creative flow. She moves throughout the room to offer tips on technique and helps with corrections in case students’ hands slip or they change their minds about adding a goatee to their horse portrait.

Though the classes, which have been featured on NBC’s Daytime, are responsible for much of the studio’s reputation, Patty also plans other community craft events. Each week on Wacky Wine Glass Wednesday, visitors embellish cups with fetching colors and patterns, and a full-time potter teaches specialty ceramics lessons that result in handmade tableware. Artists can even customize an image for their friends or family to paint during private parties, teaching children to color in SpongeBob SquarePants and encouraging coworkers to bond by sketching each other’s staplers.

Excellent atmosphere, relaxed and super nice owner/teacher!! Will be going back again! Lots of age groups were there! Had a great time!

The experience was great. I've done similar painting classes but this was by far the best! Not rushed at all. A wonderful experience.
Lynn C. · July 2, 2017
I love that you can choose when to paint and therefore, choose what to paint. The instructor was very helpful and everyone's painting turned out great with it's own unique artist's touch.
