Thanks to your support, The Paint Place has been enjoying tremendous success in Manhattan. From adult-oriented Paint and Sip nights to children’s parties and even corporate events, we are proud to make art accessible to everyone, whether or not you ever considered yourself an artist. That’s why we are so pleased to announce that we have just opened a second location in Astoria! If you live or work in Queens, we are now more convenient than ever before.
Is The Paint Place Astoria the Same as the Paint Place NY?
The short answer is yes. Right now, our brand-new Astoria location is open every week from Thursday through Sunday. With your support, our goal is to expand to a full seven days per week schedule, as we offer at the Manhattan location, in the very near future.
The Paint Place Astoria offers all of the same fun and excitement that you have been enjoying in Manhattan. We are pleased to offer children’s parties, Paint and Sips, corporate events, adult and kids classes, and all the rest of our packed lineup!
Are There Any Specials or Promotions?
We are so glad you asked! Right now, you can save 20 percent off seats in any of our Astoria classes with the promo code ASTORIA. Please note that this is a limited time promotion which is subject to cancellation at any time, so we encourage you to book your seats as soon as possible at this special rate.
I Have Never Been to the Paint Place. Do I Need to Be an Artist?
This is possibly one of our most frequently asked questions, and the answer is simple: Absolutely not! We intentionally choose paintings for our classes and events that are interesting enough for the advanced art student, but simple enough for novice artists to replicate.
You will be guided through every step of the process by one of our professional artists, all of whom are also experienced teachers. The goal is to unlock your creative juices, not to stress you out while striving for perfection. We intentionally create a relaxed, no pressure environment in which camaraderie and making new friends are at least as important as the painting itself. All you need is an open mind and the willingness to try.
Are Events at The Paint Place Public or Private?
It’s up to you. We offer public Paint and Sips (BYOB, must be 21 or older to imbibe), along with public classes for adults, children and families, on a weekly basis. You are welcome to come alone or with friends, but we find that painting together helps to build bonds between new friends.
We also offer private events for corporate parties, girls nights out, holiday gatherings, and even family reunions. You are free to choose the painting for your event, and even the location. We can host your party at our studio, or send one of our artists to your chosen venue. Please note that minimum guest numbers apply for private events.
Why Should I Try The Paint Place Astoria?
The Paint Place Astoria, like our original Manhattan location, is carefully crafted to bring people together. We provide everything you need, including easels, aprons, paints, and supplies. We ask only that you wear old clothes, and bring your own beer or wine if desired (we can supply corkscrews and cups), along with an open mind and a sense of adventure.
In a relaxed, comfortable, pressure-free environment, you can nurture your inner artist, de-stress, and enjoy the novelty of doing something outside your regular routine. Whether you choose to attend one of our regular classes alone or with friends, or allow us to help you host the special event of your dreams, we are confident that you will have an experience you will never forget!
