Are you ready for a night of painting and pinot? If so, the newly opened Painted studio is the answer for you.

Painted opened this month in Palladio at Broadstone lifestyle center at 410 Palladio Parkway, Suite 1621, Folsom.

“This is a place where people can come to socialize and get a two-hour instruction session to accomplish the painting featured that night,” said owner Jennifer Sharp. “This is not a technique workshop — it’s a place where people can come and explore their creative side at an easier slower comfortable pace.”

Sharp said they also sell local wine by the glass and bottle for customers during classes.

“Let our instructor guide you step by step through recreating a masterpiece while you enjoy some of the local wines from Amador, Lodi, Napa and Sonoma,” she said.

Sharp said she decided to open the do-it-yourself art studio to give people unique options for date nights and girl’s nights out.

“I wanted to create something different and fun for people to do together — besides just the normal dinner and a movie,” Sharp said. “It’s very upbeat and fun.”

Sharp said besides a date night with your loved one, the studio is a great option for a variety of events and parties including anniversaries, birthdays, bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelorette parties, family reunions, team building and corporate events, fundraisers, mom’s groups, church groups or just a fun night out of the house.

Evening classes are $40 on Fridays and Saturdays or $35 on weeknights which covers all materials, including canvas, paint, brushes, easels, aprons and instruction. Open paint sessions are $25 for canvas, paint, studio time and all supplies without instruction. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages are sold at an additional cost.
