Sip & Paint: 

At HOT MESS we do things a little bit differently..

Sip & Paint nights  for adults 16+ at Hot Mess are Fridays & Saturdays,  7-9pm

adult beverages are welcome, (BYOB) and you can paint anything, including 

Pottery, Canvas, Wine Glasses, Bottle Slumps, Sculpt with Clay, Mosaics, 

Stepping Stones and more!

We encourage you to explore your creative side but for those who desire step-by-step instruction, 

check the calendar for updated Artist-led events, or gather some friends and schedule your very own Sip & Paint party!

GROUP PAINTINGS:  If your group would like a private instructional time with one of our amazingly talented Studio Artists, that can be done!  Just pick out what your group will be painting, they can each choose their own canvas size, and we will do a step-by-step instructional canvas or wine glass class.  Our gallery surrounds us inside the studio, so stop in and take a peek.  Or, if you have a favorite pic just send it to us, we love to make new creations!
