About this Activity
Get ready to loosen up and uncork your creativity with a delicious (no, not the paint) wine and painting party. Are you a total painting noob? Can’t draw a straight line? Can’t distinguish between pencil and paintbrush? It happens. In this workshop, spark your inner-artist and create a beautiful painting for the home. You’ll learn brushstroke-by-brushstroke techniques, including color mixing, brushwork, composition, texture, and, most importantly, relaxation in this fun environment. With one-on-one attention, you’ll learn quickly. So sip, relax, and tune that creative bone.

Note: Bring your own 16" x 20" canvas (or buy one from Art Studio NY the night of your class), and your favorite bottle of wine (this class is BYOB -- wine and beer are permitted, no hard alcohol. All other materials will be provided.

Date Night! One Night Couples Painting Party
Really fun. Awesome idea for a date night. My boy and I loved our painting. We both wish that we had learned a little more tho, but we had both taken painting classes in the past.

First time (since high school) art class. Great way to tap into creative side. Fun date idea. Low stress, easy-going instructor. Satisfied with experience and the actual painting. Definitely would do it again.

Coming as a total beginner, I would like to emphasize the artistic ‘fire’ that The Art Studio NY has set in me. Concentrating on my art every week erases the rest of the world and results in feelings of calm, peace and relaxation. The unique approach at The Art Studio NY is irreplaceable.

BYOB One Night Painting and Wine Party
After seeing countless friends spend a fun night trying to copy a painting while sipping wine, I thought this would be a good place to start, especially given the fact that I have never painted anything in my life (with the exception of my dining room walls and some finger painting way back when). My friend Rachel and I shopped our options and settled for a 3-hour class at The Art Studio NY on the Upper West Side. Our instructor, Jacob Premo, was wonderful and encouraging as he led us through step-by-step as to how we should conquer the painting. He was also very flexible--helping other students paint entirely different pictures and even providing neon pink paint and glitter to one student (I was very jealous of her final product). The wine was constantly flowing and between that and the relaxing actions of mixing paints and putting brush to canvas, I was a happy lady by the end of the night. I may not be the next Van Gogh, but now I can say I have an original piece of art hanging in my apartment. The studio offers ongoing art classes for all levels at very reasonable prices, including drawing classes that take place in both the Met and Central Park.

I attended the 3 hour beginner course that provides wine along w/ the painting instruction. To put it shortly - it was everything you could want from an art class. The class started w/ a 5 min intro of what we were doing and what the instructor's role was. He was kind, calm and thoughtful with his instruction - he would basically go around and see if people needed help and would make suggestions and listen to your ideas. While you focus on your painting - oh yea, everything is provided for you! the canvas is an additional (~$10) charge though - there are some nice oldies tunes in the background. The space was not crowded and the people that go are a full spectrum of ability, with a commonality of quiet and respectful. The wine is at the front, along with water, and you just pour as you paint. You can really do whatever you want to your canvas too - creativity is encouraged. Just a great experience....totally worth the asking price.

I treated my friend as a birthday present to a one evening wine and painting. She had never done anything like that but she had a wonderful time, just like I did the first time I did it. It is a "gotta try".

The Art Studio NY is such a great time - and I've really never considered myself an artistic person. First of all, the vibes are friendly and the free wine sets the tone beautifully. Second, it is totally laid back with instructors who really customize their approach for each client. They keep the classes intimate so they are able to cater to each person's needs and help them reach their own creative style. It is not a lecture or seminar by any means, but rather VERY hands on and positive. Hands down, The Art Studio NY is by far the number 1 place to take art classes in NYC!!

I had a wonderful experience at The Art Studio NY BYOB Painting Party! My friend and I went on a Sunday late afternoon. We painted a Van Gogh while sipping wine, and just had a super relaxing time. The instructor was really friendly, patient, and was able to cater to my artistic level. I think the wine and BYOB part really helped loosen us all up to have an incredible time painting! I'm planning to give my painting to my mom for her birthday - hope she'll like it.

This was by far the best art class i have ever taken!!! The instructor made me feel confident and the class was so much fun. I thought i might be anxious because i did not fancy myself an artist but in fact I felt totally relaxed... which was assisted by the wine I was served during the class. AWESOME!!! I highly recommend this school to both beginners and experienced artists alike. Besides the confidence built in the class to trust my instincts and creative eye I also ended up with drawings i am truly proud of. Thank you Art Studio of NY for helping me to remember to nurture my creative spirit!!!
