“Fun, artistic event even for the unartistic person!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Such a great time! The girls running Paint Mixer are so sweet and helpful. Lots of laughs were had as our group was not the artistic type but enjoyed the entire painting process. And believe it or not our paintings turned out great. Give it a try. So fun!

We are so happy to hear you left our studio proud and happy with your very own Master piece. We'd love to know where you decided to hang it! Our main goal at Paint Mixer is to not only make sure you enjoy the vibe, helpful hints and style points, but also love what you leave with. Thank you for encouraging others to try something new and laugh while they do it. We can't wait to see you again!

“A Starry Night at new studio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Attended The Paint Mixer's opening night at their new Salt Lake City studio and had a blast doing rendition of one of my favorite paintings, Starry Night. Kelly (manager) and Brenda (artist) did a fantastic job and their excitement about opening this wonderful new facility was apparent in their smiles and greetings. Nicky, you've got another winner here! I'd recommend this to anyone for a fun, relaxing evening with delightful people.

How exciting! Couldn't be happier to know you loved our GRAND OPENING in Sugar House. It is such an honor to support such a creative community. Starry Night is one of our most popular paintings, and we love to teach it! Since you liked that, keep an eye on our Paint Mixer Calendar online for Mimosa MONDAY! Brenda & Kelly will be teaming up to welcome you every Monday with BIG smiles and tasty Mimosas.

“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

I had a ball and even though I can't paint a lick, I produced something I was surprisingly willing to show off. The instructors were great and very helpful. What a great way to spend an evening with friends and we were fundraising for a great cause all at the same time. I'd do it again, for sure.

We have worked hand in hand with many individuals, schools and non-profit organizations. Paint Mixer is also a great way to build friendships, recognition and confidence!

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 bubbles 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.
