Perfect for any type of gathering (date night, girls night or day out, meet and greet, company function, etc). Our instructor was professional, very enthusiastic, funny, calm and collected yet knew how to try and tame down some of the rowdier people. There is a decent sized kitchen (no fridge) where you can bring food, wines, cooler, and spirits with a window cut out to the painting room. The main painting room could hold at least 60 people. Opposite to where the open air painting room, there is also a separate glassed enclosed room for more private parties. The painting event normally lasts 1-2 hours. There is plenty of paint, aprons, and brushes to use. This a must for anyone that just wants to have fun, paint, and socialize.
Adding alcohol to just about any activity is a fabulous time for me. Sipping on vino while I pretend to be an artist was bound to be a great time, and it was at Sips & Strokes. Sure, I messed up my painting more than once...but I had a good buzz so that eased my embarrassment. This is the perfect meet up for your squad or just you and your bae for a date. It's BYOB (bring your own booze) and bring something to eat as well if you'd like--snacks and finger foods are best since your hands will be busy. The staff will lead you as you create your masterpiece. They'll also help if you make a mistake or ten. Fun times!
I never thought I could paint anything and Sip and Strokes proved me wrong! I had a chance to paint the Eiffel Tower with a wonderful group of women while sipping on wine and munching on small bites. Give yourself at least a few hours for this class as we were there for about 3. Don't come in your best clothes because you don't want to get the paint on it. Instead come dressed casually. This is a great idea for a birthday, girls night out or really any occasion where you want to do something out of the ordinary.
Such a fun experience! Went here for an event and had an amazing time! You bring your own wine and snacks and do a step by step painting, so if you aren't the best artist no worries because they make it super easy to follow along. Highly suggest sips and strokes
I had a great time with great company. The instructors help you step by step so it's pretty hard to mess up your artwork. This is a nice event for a girls day of to just do an activity that is out of the norm
I went to Blick with a list of art supplies my daughter needed for a class and they walked around with me to pick up each item and gave me advice on which product was better if there was a choice.
The staff here is funny and helpful throughout your painting experience. Bring beverages and snacks for this activity because it does take awhile to finish the painting with instruction.
This place has changed names, but is still the only art place in Midtown. Expensive, but extensive in art supplies. If they do not have something, they can order it for you.
Incredible custom needlepoint belts. I have four and each is excellent.Great staff -- especially the one with the Aussie accent.
