This is a fun, different night out. It's great for groups and it's a very relaxed atmosphere which makes it inviting. You have to plan in advance though. Choose a night with a painting you would like to do and plan around that. When they say starts at 6:00 they mean paint brush in hand, lets get started at 6:00... More

I purchased a Groupon and decided to give this place a try. Husband and I both enjoyed it. It was a fun date, we brought some snacks and relaxed while painting. This would make for a really fun girls night as well. The staff was very friendly. They walk you through the steps so even the least artistic person can... More

I held a small, private party. The actual painting day was fun and interactive. They allowed me to bring in small food & beverage which I really appreciated. My discomfort was caused by what I perceived to be poor business follow up (uncertainty about my reservation, payment, verification, etc).

We had a great time. I went with a group of friends. We took our wine and treats to eat. The venue opens early to find a seat and have a drink or two before painting instruction starts.

We had a great time! Instruction was excellent, supplies provided, great participants, and you can bring your own snacks/drinks. Reasonable cost for the time spent and you come away with a painting - I didn’t know I could pa!!int. So much fun - highly recommend. One thing to remember - don’t dress up - you’re painting!!

That was such a fun thing to do. We went on a Saturday night. 2 hour class. We had a blast. Would definitely do this again. You can bring your own drinks and food. Get there early to get seats together.

I came to the Purple Easel last Friday night with two of my friends for the 7-10 PM session. The place was pretty packed for the most part but we were able to get seats together. I suggest coming a little early. They provided a canvas, apron, paint, and all of the materials you need to paint your masterpiece. The... More

Purple Easel is always a great time. My friends and I bring our favorite wine and snacks and know we will leave with a positive and memorable experience. I'm not a natural born artist, but I leave Purple Easel every time feeling proud of the painting I accomplished with the help of their friendly staff! I also like that they... More
