Are We There Yet: Painting Parties at Pinot’s Palette

You’ve likely noticed grown-up ‘paint-nights’ throughout many cities. Participants don aprons, take a seat behind an easel and attempt to recreate the night’s image under the guidance of an experienced instructor. It’s a night of good clean (or not so clean) artsy fun, usually hosted temporarily at a bar or café.

Now, thanks to Pinot’s Palette on Dundas Street in Toronto, you and your kids can paint together almost any night of the week. Pinot’s Palette is a permanent storefront space set up for painting with plenty of elbow room and seating.

Pinot’s Palette in Toronto is the first Canadian outlet of a franchise spreading its way across the U.S. offering one-night art classes for adults and families. Each month brings new pictures, including some specifically for kids. Then there are the parties.

Children’s two-hour birthday parties in either the studio space (for up to 50 people) or smaller rooms downstairs are private painting events starting at $25 per kid for 14 kids plus the birthday boy/girl. You bring your own food and cake. You also get to select your own night’s image from an extensive library that includes mermaids, snails, dinosaurs, cats and even troll dolls. Plus, the painting the instructor completes is signed by all guests and given to the birthday celebrant.
