Not just another Paint-&-Sip
or Wine-&-Design art studio


In addition to our popular painting classes, we pride ourselves in offering art classes in a wider variety of artistic mediums like Collage, Batik, Printmaking, Drawing, Watercolor, Encaustic Wax Painting, Mosaic, Jewelry, Pastels and much more.  Most ARTini classes last either 2 hours and cost $35.00 or 3 hours and cost $45 (please note, some classes may have additional materials or canvas prep fees which are detailed at registration.)  Happymess students enjoy instructor led classes where they are guided to create their own “mess”terpiece with as much or as little assistance as requested.  Our teachers are all local artists that delight in sharing their knowledge and passion with you.  All that you need to bring is your enthusiasm, snacks, drinks (alcohol permitted.)  Let us provide the rest: art supplies, aprons, wine glasses, music and whatever else you might need.

Bring a friend or come by yourself.  Join us for a fun filled art class.
No Experience Necessary!
