New to the Paint Mixer scene? It’s a blast!
A professional art instructor walks you through creating a beautiful acrylic painting on canvas, step-by-step.
Even if you’ve never picked up a brush, you’ll have no trouble following along. And if you’ve attended other Paint Mixers, you’ll learn new techniques and improve your skills.
Come and enjoy two hours of socializing and creativity (adults only please). Dress casual and come for the fun, but plan on taking home a masterpiece!
We’re always planning additional Paint Mixers. Check back here frequently for the latest schedule.
