The “paint and sip” trend is coming to Bricktown, with the opening of an art and wine studio planned for the spring.
Pinot's Palette, which opened its first Oklahoma location in Tulsa last year, is remodeling a space in Bricktown. The Houston-based franchise offers guests a night out by pairing beginner art lessons with wine tasting in two-hour or three-hour sessions.
Bricktown franchisee Ashley Gardner, a professional artist, joined the company three years ago and moved to Houston. When the opportunity arose to help open the Tulsa studio, then her own in Bricktown, she jumped on it.
“It's literally the best job on Earth,” Gardner said. “We teaching painting classes and wine is always flowing. It's just a really positive, fun night out.”
The Bricktown studio could open as early as March in a location on the canal at 115 E California, directly under Hooters. The business will host classes throughout the week and also can be booked for private parties and corporate events. Cost is $35 per person for a two-hour class and $45 per person for a three-hour class, which includes the canvas and painting supplies. Guests get to take home their masterpiece.
