The instructor (vicky?) was SO accommodating and gracious - I can't believe that with her instruction, I could actually paint something that resembles a work of art! The evening was very well organized and I felt very comfortable. I want to do this again really soon! Highly recommend it!

As a a anniversary gift to my wife we attempted to recreate our inner Van Gough. Not so much but we had a great time anyway. Great staff, great experience. If you have not tried this you owe it to yourself at least once to bring out your inner painter, but don't forget to bring the wine.

Friendly, helpful staff. Good ambiance and music. Decent selection of wines for decent prices. Wish there was more time however to do finishing touches on paintings - felt a bit rushed throughout.

Instead of spending your night out in a bar hit this fantastic fun night opportunity! Paint, brushes, canvas and instructor included. You can order your wine there or bring your own bottle. They provide the glasses and opener. They offer snack chips for sale. But trust me you will barely have enough time to drink let alone eat. Long tables... More

I visited as part of a small group of 10 for a team builder. Now, I have no artistic ability and thought my project would be a joke, but thanks to the patience of our instructor, I was pleasantly surprised. It was amazing to see the final product. Although not perfect, it was much better than I ever would've imagined!... More

Went there with a group of friends. We brought our own wine. Had a great time! I am horrible at painting or anything artsy but the teacher was very patient and fun. My "work of art" actually turned out pretty good! The owner, Audra, was wonderful and also very helpful! This place is in an awesome location with plenty to... More

All first time artists and we had a really fun time. Would suggest this to any group or couple for a different, bonding, artsy time.

I was looking for something different to do with my boyfriend and when I saw a BYOB Art Studio.. Perfect! We grabbed our bottle of wine and headed down. Our class was full of all different types of people. We all had a great time as a group and I had one of the most wonderful nights with my man.... More

A small venue where you can bring a bottle of your favorite wine along. Corkscrew and stemmed glasses are provided. Come in half an hour early to window shop nearby galleries, then enter the storefront/gallery/cozy classroom setting to socialize with other "classmates." The painting class is two hours. Sit at long tables with others of varying (mostly newbies) talent. Receive... More
