St. Pete, FL, June 1, 2016– Announcing the opening of Sketch and Sip, a Unique, Instructional, Step by Step Painting class. We have been in business in Hillsborough County for almost eight years. Our first location is operating in Winthrop Towne Center in the Brandon area. We have been doing very well and are so pleased to open an even larger studio in the Edge Arts District of St. Pete! Our mission is to spread art throughout the community and we are excited to join an already vibrant art community and contribute to the district and area.

Our current studio holds 40 people and we sell out of seats very often. Our new space will fit double the guests. We teach one painting per class and provide attentive instruction to those who join the class. We are proud to present over 150 original paintings and add new compositions every month. Since we have a lot of repeat customers we also try to offer different medium of art. Every Wednesday evening is Wacky Wine Glass Wednesday where we provide different styles of glassware and stencils to help our guests make their own unique original piece of art. Check out our calendar on- line for all of the projects we offer. Private parties, team building, showers, birthdays, bachelorette, etc... are all welcome. You can join a public class and reserve seats together or have the space to yourself with your group. We have many packages to accommodate all of those who are interested. The best part is you can bring your own beverages and food! We supply music, cups, plates, napkins, ice, bottled water, bottle openers and all other supplies to complete a painting. All you have to do is pre- register, bring whatever you would like to nibble or sip, and have a good time!
Gather some Friends Bring your Favorite Beverage and Make a painting in 2.5 hours!
