This is such a great idea for a souvenir! My children and I walked by on our way to the trolley stop and couldn't help but be drawn into the shop. My 7 year old painted a plate, which Stephanie informed us will be completely food and dishwasher safe after it is fired, and my 4 year old painted a cute little caterpillar. After they were done, they got to add their hand prints to the wall, which will be great to find when we go back... because we WILL go back. I am definitely doing my own piece next time. We live about 3 hours away, and usually visit the area every summer. this is going to be one of those family traditions I think. We can't wait to get our pieces in the mail next week :)

The staff is above and beyond friendly and helpful. Tula was outstanding juggling multiple tables and kids and giving them all attention and help without being frazzled. She is gifted with children and my kids had so much fun. Loved the touch that they have kids add their handprint to the walls of the studio.

Thank you so much for your review Carrie! I'm glad you and the kids had such a great time and that we could get their masterpieces to you before you left town! Hopefully next time we'll get your little ones handprint on the wall too!!

My husband and I like to visit these paint-your-own places while on vacation. This recent vacation was our first with our daughter so the mugs we all made were extra special. Of course we never plan properly so we always have to have them shipped. So needless to say, we were so disappointed when one of our mugs arrived shattered (the risk you take for poor planning). Thankfully, just a few moments after sending them an email, the owner called and not only offered a really sincere apology, but she also refunded the broken mug and had a replacement sent. The replacement came about a week and a half later and they did an awesome job of trying to replicate the first/broken one. So while it still stinks that we don't have the original, the people at Brush On In were awesome and at least we have the replacement and a story to tell. I definitely recommend this place. Better than any cheap souvenir. :)

My kids (6 and 9) had a great time painting on New Years Day. The staff person was very helpful with suggestions and refilled paints and washed brushes several times. We felt welcome to stay as long as we wanted. We are looking forward to having these items shipped home. If you are planning to paint it does take four days for the process to be finished so plan to do this early in your vacation if possible.

Thanks for coming in, Sarah! We hope you enjoyed receiving your items and that you'll come back to see us again soon! As you mentioned, although it takes 3-4 days for items to be fired, we do ship pieces anywhere in the US and Canada, so folks can visit us at any point in their vacations. :)

We had some time between our events while we were here for the week and went over to create some memories. We painted some pieces that we can't wait to use when we get back home. My daughter and I had a great time and can't wait to be back. Everyone was very helpful and would recommend this to anyone with families looking for a great time... See you soon again

We usually have to travel about 2 hours to go to a place like this, and now theres one so close. we love picking out our own piece and decorating it how we want, then return (or have it shipped) and they always turn out so great. Last trip we decorated a dog bowl, and a picture frame. That is one way to truly bring home memorabilia, that we created from our trip. and it is right on main street, close to everything.
Highly recommend!!

We had a great time here. We brought all the girls after the first hockey game, they had so much fun and so did the moms.
