Husband and wife duo, Mark and Catherine Hover, moved to the area just one year ago and jumped on the opportunity to introduce the ‘paint and sip’ concept to Upstate New York residents. “A new addition to downtown Saratoga Springs’ artsy vibe will make art accessible to those who couldn’t imagine picking up a paint brush, otherwise,” Hover said.
Customers visit the studio’s website, review the calendar of featured paintings and select the painting and date they’d like to attend. Next, all there is to do is show up and prepare to be impressed. Upon arrival, they receive all materials: paint, brushes, canvas and apron, grab a drink from the in-studio bar and take a seat while a local artist walks them through the featured painting. At the end of the night, patrons leave the studio with their own painting in hand and ready to showcase in their home or gift to a friend. Private parties for birthdays, bachelorettes or corporate team building are welcomed.
In addition to being a popular nightlife destination, Saratoga Paint and Sip Studio aims to get involved in community fundraising and offer retail space to local artists to showcase their work. This affordable art experience is currently open to the public and will host a grand opening on June 16th. Reservations can be made by visiting their website, www.saratogapaintandsip.com
Saratoga Paint and Sip Studio is located at 80 Henry Street, between Caroline Street and Lake Avenue in downtown Saratoga Springs, NY- next to Simplicity Hair Salon and Saratoga Bead. \
