Since it was 0 degrees this evening, we decided to skip our planned night skiing. We found this place instead and were so glad we did. What a great idea! Adults and kids can enjoy an afternoon or evening of creating their own work of art. The art instructor guides the class, step-by-step, and everyone ends up with a beautiful acrylic painting. The class all paints the same subject, but everyone gives it their own personal touch. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the teacher, Annie, was delightful. While we painted, we sipped wine and listened to music. There are also non-alcoholic drinks for the kids. Great price, too, $35-$40 for the class and materials. We will certainly be back next year when we return for our ski week. Highly recommended!

The atmosphere was delightful and we felt very welcome. Our 4 sons ranging from 6 to 14 enjoyed themselves and now have a wonderful keepsake. Each persons painting turned out differently but in a cool way. Would highly recommend dinner before or after with one friend or a group of friends. The instructor was fantastic! Don't wear your favorite outfit though they provide aprons.

Painting is definitely a messy sport so you're right there, Chad! Best not to wear your favorite outfit. We're glad to hear that you all enjoyed yourselves! We do offer kids camps and workshops for the aspiring young artist. They last 2-5 days and feature a different painting every day. We've started Paint Wine & Dine events at local restaurants and bars (21+ at bar settings, but young ones are still welcome at the restaurants). These events allow you to take advantage of the hosting venue's liquor license, and you get the option to order great appetizers of small plates from a specially designed menu! We've also teamed up with popular Salt Lake food trucks that will be occasionally stopping by our studio. All these, and other upcoming events can be found on our website's calendar!

Nikki and her staff go WAY above and beyond to make your experience at the Paint Mixer unforgettable, fun, relaxing and productive!
Being sidelined from snowboarding with my family by an injury, good luck presented me a Paint Mixer brochure in a local restaurant. When I called to inquire about the flexibility of the open studio session and private instruction, the owner Nikki went out of her way to accommodate me, so I showed up at 9 am when a class full of young children who were busy painting a wild peacock.
Seeing them freely painting away helped me get over my "fears" of messing up, and Nikki let me pick any painting to paint, offering me a detailed instruction sheet with several samples of my chosen painting to look at, and set up in a spot of my choice, while offering all the assistance I could have asked for.
The experience was so relaxing and fun that I was able to talk one of the moms in the room to join me. Nikki promptly set her up, showed her the ropes, and unleashed her inner artist.
By the time her three children were done painting their masterpieces, she too had a beautiful masterpiece.
I went home with such a sense of accomplishment and joy, that I brought my 17 year old daughter back with me that evening for a 6:30p class that she enjoyed as much as snowboarding! The next morning, I was back for painting number three and again, the staff, atmosphere and just whole experience made my trip so fun, despite the fact that I was injured and the rest of my family was out riding the slopes all day. Who cared? I was fulfilling a dream of learning to paint in a stress free and totally fun, music filled atmosphere! Gifting a session at The Paint Mixer is affordable and promises a fun time for your recipient! We treated the kids snowboarding instructors and their spouses to Paint Mixer date nights.
Everyone should treat themselves to a session or more at The Paint Mixer when visiting Park City! Nikki has done it right and I shall soon be requesting her consulting services to do a Paint Mixer Fundraiser in my town.

The whole entire experience was AWESOME! Atmosphere, drinks, instructor and music were all amazing and fun. My husband was not excited to "paint", but ended up enjoying himself just as much as I did. We attended the "Funky Tree" session on a Saturday afternoon and had so much fun making it our own. I will definitely be planning a girl's night out at The Paint Mixer to share the experience with my girlfriends. Best part was the original painting that you get to take home with you!! Loved every minute of it!

I attended a class at the Sugar House location, and it was absolutely wonderful. My husband took me for my birthday, and he was kind of dreading it since he isn't much of a painter and has never enjoyed drawing. He had such a wonderful time because the instructor makes it fun and enjoyable for everyone. Anyone can do it. They are great at making painting fun, all your own, and working with people with different skill levels. The fact that you can drink some brews and wine while also painting makes it all the more fun. I would seriously recommend this to anyone who is wanting a fun date activity.

We went as a group one late afternoon (5:00pm) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. They offer a theme and the instructor will guide the budding painters every step of the way. It was just amazing how each individual produced a painting using their own interpretation of the instruction. The results were a nice canvas that you could frame and hang on the wall. The atmosphere is so relaxed with music playing and wine offered. The time goes by quickly but you never feel rushed.
If you go online at thepaintmixer.com there is a calendar of events that offers a variety of different themes. They also offer classes for kids both on weekends and as special events.
Great event for any sort of theme: Engagement party, birthday party, family gathering! And YES! guys will enjoy this...they might need a little convincing but they fit right in and come up with their own masterpieces!!!

I've been to the Paint Mixer several times and have loved every session. I've used their kids camps too and my son has always enjoyed it. I have no artistic abilities but The Paint Mixer staff makes this so much fun and it's therapeutic in my opinion! Will be returning soon.

It sounds like you are an addicted painter! Next time you come in to the studio be sure to get a frequent painter card started if you haven't already. After your fifth class the sixth is free! There are also some great events coming up for the Holidays for painters of all ages and abilities!

We wanted a unique family experience for a birthday celebration and signed up for the Starry Jack painting class. It exceeded my expectations. My husband, mom, teenage sons and girlfriends all enjoyed themselves and were ecstatic to go home with their own artwork. We were led in a step-by-step approach to recreating our a painting, but there is so much freedom in your own interpretation of the instructions, that everyone creates something unique. We can't wait to do another painting with Paint Mixer.
