We’re having another great weekend in our new Midtown studio. Yesterday the giant UPS truck dropped by to bring us a new shipment of canvases – just in time for a busy Friday night last night. Saturday afternoon we welcomed a family birthday party at UPS Canvas Shipmentnoon and then a teen youth group at 2pm. Adult & Teen Open Studio had two groups of girls night out to celebrate birthdays – always a fun time!

We went exploring our new neighborhood and checked out the Ashland Midtown Pub for some fantastic calzones! Highly recommend and about 5 minutes from our new Midtown studio. Plus they deliver!

Next week is Date Night – if you’re looking for some good food on your way to your night of painting – they’re on Old Shell just east of Florida. (And there’s an ABC store next door if you need to grab your BYOB.)

We had another fun 29th birthday party last night and are looking forward to a great second weekend at our new Midtown studio. We have about a dozen seats left for tonight (Friday). We welcome walk-ins at our Friday Adult & Teen Open Studio or call 251-343-2423 to reserve your seat.

Saturday we still have a few seats available in the afternoon (Kids & Adults Open Studio). Older kids can be dropped off to paint on Saturday afternoons (last week we had some young teens painting all afternoon). For those who want to start Adult & Teen Open Studio early (around 5:30pm) we have about 5 seats still available for Saturday evening. Our next Date Night is next Saturday (9/5) so call us if you want to save your seat before we fill the house.

As always you can bring your food and drinks to enjoy while you paint – we provide everything you need to paint including instructions.

082415b Busy night last night – 81 people came out to paint and support the Satsuma High School Band and their Paint Party Studios Fundraiser. The band students did a great job of setting up the gym for all the painters – they brought in chairs and tables borrowed from area churches and helped get everything set up. Then it was our turn to get all the paints and canvases ready, hand out aprons and get everyone started painting.

Band members and their families, friends and neighbors got to enjoy a creative night out in support of the musical arts. It was a great community event attended by all ages and the boosters had a concession stand set up for snacks as part of the fundraiser.

If you would like to schedule a Paint Party Studios Fundraiser for your school club, church group, non-profit organization or Mardi Gras group, please call us at 251-343-2423 for more information.

Date Night 0822 2 We’ve got our Beyonce, Mary J. Blige and Rihanna Pandora station going and the creativity is flowing here at our new Upham Street studio in Midtown. Everyone is excited to paint and mixing and mingling with their fellow painters for a relaxing night out.

Sandwich BoardOur $20 Date Nights aren’t just for couples. We welcome groups of friends, co-workers, whoever you want to bring – as long as they’re over 18 (no kids at date nights).

If you’ve never been to one of our date nights, we make it easy for you – no painting experience necessary. Just pick a picture you want to paint from our online gallery (or our in-studio look books) and we’ll sketch it for you on a canvas. Put on an apron and come up to our paint station where we get you all the paints you need from a rainbow of colors. We’ll give you instructions to get started and then you ask one of our staff artists for help every step of the way.

Date Night 0822Sit with friends or make new friends with the others at your table. You can bring dinner and drinks to enjoy while you paint and visit with your fellow painters – we’ve got a fridge, wine glasses and bottle openers for your drinks.

 

We have Adult & Teen Open Studio every Friday night starting at 5:30pm and alternating Saturdays starting at 6:00pm. We seat painters until 7:30pm both nights and we’re open until you’re all finished painting (usually about 10pm or so – some people finish earlier and some a little later than that). On Fridays and non-Date Night Saturdays the 16×20″ paintings are $30 (and take about 3 hours) and 11x14s are $25 (and take about 2 hours). Every other Saturday (including tonight 8/22) is our Adult Open Studio Date Night (ages 18+) where everyone paints for $20 per person for either 11×14 or 16×20.

Call 251-343-2423 for reservations for your next evening of painting, drinks and eats. Walk-ins are welcome for any of our Open Studio sessions if space is available – but if you have a group that wants to sit together we strongly recommend reservations so we can hold a table for you.

A Giant Cityscape and an Abstract Jazz Band

Meghan and Jordan PaintingWe’ve got some incredibly talented artists working at Paint Party Studios and we gave them some giant canvasses to paint for the new Midtown studio at 15 Upham St. They got right to work – Meghan is painting a giant cityscape with the USS Alabama in the foreground and Jordan is painting an abstract jazz band.

I’ve been trying to get pictures as we go along – watch for updates – they’re not done yet.

To the right is the first day filing in the background and below are some ‘during’ shots. We can’t wait to see the finished canvas – stay tuned for more images.

Meghan will be teaching Drawing and 3D & Recycled Art after school classes at the Azalea City Center for the Arts (near Dauphin & I-65) this fall and Jordan will be teaching Drawing, Drawing Comics and Painting at our Old Town Daphne studio.
