Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Public Paint Party?

A public paint party is where you purchase a ticket by selecting a session of your choice from our calendar of events.

Our Studio Classique Paint Parties are $45 +Tax a ticket and include the painting lesson, all supplies required in Studio and a chef's selection of gourmet appetizers for you to enjoy. Wine and beer can be purchase from our licensed bar.

No artistic experience is necessary- just an adventurous attitude and an open mind and we will teach you all you need to know to create a COMPLETE masterpiece before you leave our studio. These events are fun and you definitely will wow yourself and perhaps make new friends! So come prepared for all of that!

We occasionally host special events where you can learn things like dancing, cigar rolling, acrylic pour, mosaic and more- those events may be priced differently according to their materials or course description but are fun public classes to attend as well. Keep a look out for them on our calendar, Facebook or Instagram!

Do you have parking onsite?

Yes we do! We have free surface and underground parking. Pull into our parking lot right off Lakeshore by the Burger's Priest at 129 Lakeshore Rd East.

How are you different from other Paint Nights held at local bars?

We get this question a lot! Our focus is on your experience and we want you to have a great night out! Here are some of the many differences:

  1. We are a dedicated studio custom built to host premium paint events. You will never feel cramped or rushed. Even our lighting was specifically selected for painting and workshop activities.
  2. We try to limit our class sizes to 15-20 people so you get the attention you need from the instructor. Every seat is the best seat in the house! However, occasionally, we may have more people to accomodate group bookings, but we try and ensure that everyone is comfortable and can see the instruction and enjoy their experience.
  3. We offer other unique experiences like live model paint events, special technique workshops, dance and paint nights, cultural immersion nights, special movie nights, kids and family weekend events, wine and scotch tastings, cigar rolling workshops, cocktail mixology workshops, live music nights and so much more! Check our calendar or sign up for our newsletter for dates and timings.
  4. We are community oriented and regulary partner with local causes for fundraising events. We support local artists by offering our gallery wall to showcase their art, we welcome local musicians to come in and showcase their talent. We have also reserved Wednesday evenings for local artists to hold their own ticketed workshops in The Studio and frequently partner with our neighbouring studios to hold amazing one of a kind events for our guests.
  1. Our Studio is also a premium event space for your special events. Think corporate appreciation events, birthdays, your own personal night club with DJ, anniversaries, bachelorettes, Art Shows (we have lot's of wall space) and even Pop-up space. We have a fully licensed bar and catering available. Let us take care of all the details!
  2. We are 100% Canadian and local to Mississauga. We support local as well. All our materials, food, wine, vendors and contractors are sourced as locally as possible.

Can I have a private paint night?

Yes, absolutely! Our Studio Privé packages are customized to our clients. They start at a minimum of 12 painters or we require a minimum spend if you are choosing not to do a painting event

Please send us an email at info@thestudiopaintbar.ca with your party details and we can usually send you a complete quote within 24-48 hours!  Please state number of participants, date, food requirements and any other details to help us get back to you sooner.

Do I need to bring anything?

Other than your creative spirit, you don't need to bring a THANG! Everything you will need for the night is provided.  You will be treated to all the paint, easels, canvases, aprons, brushes etc that you will need for the session. Although our paint washes off, we recommend that you wear something you wouldn't mind getting a little paint on.

Do I have to have any artsy experience?

Absolutely no artistic experience is necessary. Most of our guests are actually first timers!

We have expert instructors and paintings designed to be taught in a way that will ensure that you will be pleasantly surprised by your painting! We regularly hear phrases like "Omg, I can't believe my painting turned out so well" or "I was so nervous when I started but this actually turned out really well" or "The last time I painted was in Grade 1 so I really didn't expect my painting to turn out so good" so be rest assured that you already have all it takes to paint. Just come in, grab a drink and relax as we take you on an artistic journey!

Are Kids allowed in The Studio?

Absolutely! Weekend mornings and afternoons are dedicated t0 Families and Kids. Check our calendar for kids events. We only feel that kids would not enjoy the evening sessions as they are a 19+ vibe after 6 pm.  However, Teenagers are more than welcome to attend our evening events. 

What if I am a confident artist or don't need instructions?

We have something for you as well called Studio Libré or Freestylin' !  Some days we have dedicated to walk-in and paint sessions and all you have to do is purchase a canvas in a size of your choice starting at 25$+ tax and start painting whatever you want. All supplies like unlimited paint, easel (standing or table top), brushes, palette knifes, aprons and clean up are included in these session prices. Our artists will even help you plan your painting and guide you through colour mixing and painting techniques if you'd like. Please call or email ahead to ensure we aren't closed for a private event. Adults and Kids are welcome!
