Q&A with the Part Owner/Instructor
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
We instruct our participants step-by-step to complete a simple yet stunning 16"x20" canvas painting. All materials are provided. Everyone brings home a masterpiece!
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Two of us are in education so our experience in teaching helps to break down steps to make them easy for all learners. We are self-taught painters.
The shelves at Color Me Mine’s studios teem with whimsical bisque-pottery pieces—pony and princess figurines, piggy banks, and kitty-cat mugs—each stark white and waiting for the brush strokes of a budding artist. That artist might be a birthday boy at a party or a grown-up unwinding at a girls' night out. No previous experience is required, as the studio staff dispenses plenty of painting tips, stencils, and artistic inspiration. Afterwards, the staff will fire the resulting pieces, which can then be used as décor or dinnerware thanks to Color Me Mine's lead-free, food-safe, paints.
