This was a great way to spend time with friends. We enjoyed the instruction of Kelsi and our drink mixer Karen!! Our art will go home with us to New Hampshire.

I loved your Unique Ferns! What a fun class! I hope New Hampshire is ready for the new artistic genius we stirred up in the Studio that day. Now that you know how to build and layer a painting, next time you visit try Open Studio. In Open Studio you and your friends can enjoy the creative process at your own pace and indulge the artistic renegade within. Enjoy the Winter!

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I decided to find out if we were any good at art by visiting the Paint mixer to do one of the painting sessions on our vacation in Park City. Looking at some of the pictures online before going we wondered how the instruction would be, since the pictures looked so close to the original templates we wondered if it was paint by numbers. It is not. The instructor was great about encouraging people to really get creative while giving useful and helpful tips about how to make an image based on the template picture, in our case fern gully. Using the exact same paints with the exact same instructions my wife and I came up with two very different finished products, which were frankly better than we thought they would be, but both of them were recognizable as being based on the template. It was lots of fun and it's nice to do an activity where you actually have a tangible product at the end that is unique to you. Totally worth it, we would do it again.

Thank you for your feedback BenSanborn! It's true, a lot of people wonder if we are "pain-by-numbers" we also hear "where is the pencil?" At first it can be a little intimidating to realize that a brush is all you have to push paint around the canvas. Luckily, we have a very entertaining & talented team of artists who are right there with you the whole time, ready to help you express your own style. But we can't take all the credit, our wine bar also gets the creativity flowing and the inspiration rolling. It truly is a great place to bond with the people you love! Next time you're in town, we invite you to try one or more of our exciting Wine & Dine Events! It's a romantic setting where you can enjoy great food, wine and painting all at the same time.

“Great experience - even for the non-artist!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We took my parents for my Mom's birthday and had an excellent time. None of us have any artistic ability and we all had a great time and were really impressed with what turned out! Will go back and would highly recommend!

Thank you for your recommendation Bill P! We always love to hear that the whole family enjoyed the experience. Every one of our paintings is specifically created for all levels of artistic expression to thoroughly enjoy. We believe there is an Artist in everyone! If you get a chance to visit Sugar House soon, take a peak at our New Studio. Meet our new artists and sign up for one of our brand new paintings!

“Fun and therapeutic time!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Such a fun event with a large group we had. They were wonderful to help any and all of us and everyone had a great time. I found it almost therapeutic as I focused on my painting and didn't think of anything else during the few hours we were there. Highly recommend for a group or just go do it for yourself sometime!!!

Therapeutic indeed! We like to think of The Paint Mixer as your home away from home. Our artists enjoy creating a comfortable nonjudgemental environment. Painting is meant to be expressive and fun, and when you have the right tools and guide, you can relax and let that paint brush flow. Now that you have been welcomed and introduced to the tools of the trade as well as the process, please join us again to further enhance your imagination and artistic skill. Try out our new Sugar House Location and/or our Open Studio option. In Open Studio you can kick back and paint at your own pace, be the master of your own Art!

“An evening of creative fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

If you think you have "NO" ability to draw or paint this is the venue for you! There was a group of women who spent a few hours at the paint mixer with snacks, wine, paints and supplies. It was fun to be shown how to paint something besides stick people. The gals there are terrific and encourage a fun time.
