Wine & Paint Parties: $35 per participant (plus tax)

We offer wine and painting events for a fun lighthearted experience. You will be able to create fun works of art with the guidance of an artist – no experience necessary! Unlike other studios, we cater specifically to private parties so you’re only painting with the people you know. Dogwood Art Studio is a cozy studio, so we can only fit up to 10 people at a time. 6-8 people is a good number to shoot for. Please no more than 10 guests; this is to ensure your comfort in the studio.

Parties can be scheduled weeknights from 6:30pm-8:30pm OR 7-9pm. Saturdays are also available with the first spot opening at 11am up until 5pm, with 5-7pm being the last slot. Our parties last anywhere from and hour and a half to two hours long. Please arrive a little early so we can start on time. We are closed on Sundays.

Please include which painting you’d like to paint from the Gallery. Paint palettes are filled prior to your arrival time so that we can start on time.

For birthday or bachelorette parties, please include the info of the special guest when inquiring about your party. We provide a complimentary bottle of champagne for the guest of honor! (Must be 21 years of age.)

Includes: a 16×20 canvas, the use of studio paints, brushes, easels, palettes and aprons.

**Please keep in mind that Dogwood Art Studio is a working studio with limited space for food. Light snacks and drinks only. Thank you!
