It's an evening or afternoon out in a relaxed social setting. It's a great date night, time out with friends or family, or an opportunity to meet new people. 

Our artists will guide you step by step through the featured painting. Explore your creative side and go home with a painting that is uniquely yours.

The Springs Resort & Spa , Durango Arts Center & Kolak Place are pop up venues where you can bring your own food & snacks. Kolak Place also allows for BYOB. All of our other class locations have some pretty tasty food you can purchase along with drinks.

Do I need any artistic experience?

No experience required. Our paintings are designed to be very easy and our artists love giving personal attention if desired. It is our priority to ensure that you walk out with something you had fun creating. 

Do I have to paint the featured painting?

We encourage our painters to do what makes them happy, even changing up colors if desired. If you want to go off on your own tangent, that is perfectly fine. After all, it's your painting! However, the instructor will be teaching the featured painting and will assist you as time allows.
