It's really as easy as Sign Up. Show Up. Drink Up and Paint.

Tipsy Paint is a new, exciting way to spend a night out!

We invite you to explore our calendar of paintings and register for one that interests you. When the night arrives, bring your favorite beverage and head over to the studio for an entertaining night with friends or that special someone. Our talented artists will guide you through the night’s featured painting stroke by stroke. You will be amazed at the masterpiece you created with a little professional guidance. Whether you are looking to explore your creative side or just want to be thoroughly entertained, Tipsy Paint offers you a unique experience you won’t soon forget.

We mean it when we say no experience is necessary. Tipsy Paint has carefully designed our featured paintings to be user-friendly for all skill levels. Come in and amaze yourself!




Tipsy Paint offers several different types of class options at both the Glenview and Lake Zurich locations, which include:


Tipsy Painting

Why just paint when you can Tipsy Paint? That's what we thought too! So put a brush in one hand and a drink in the other, and join us in a new colorful way to spend the night out!

Held Tuesday-Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, Tipsy Painting is a step-by-step, group-oriented painting instruction, which is designed to simultaneously entertain and enlighten our guests with the help of BYOB. A professional artist guides you through a featured painting, which you'll find on our calendar, that is yours to keep and proudly display at the end of the night.

Classes typically take 2 - 2.5 hours.



Private Events

If you are looking for a unique party, just tell us the reason and we’ll host the event. Whether it is in our studio, at your home, or in another venue you’d prefer, Tipsy Paint will do all the work to create a memorable experience. Tipsy Paint provides all art supplies and an instructor.



In addition, we offer packages for catering, various tastings, live music, live models and more. Whether the party is at our studio or off-site, pricing is on a per-person basis and has a minimum. Off-site events require a nominal set-up fee in addition.



A non-refundable deposit is due upon booking your function. The final head count and payment are due two weeks prior to the function. In the event you need to reschedule, the deposit will be transferrable as long as we receive notice three weeks prior to your scheduled date.

Tipsy Kids Classes

We host Birthday parties and afternoon classes for children ages 4 and up. It's the same concept, just with smaller canvases and more confident painters!


Classes take anywhere from 1-1.5 hours and birthday parties are 1.5 to 2 hours, which include a 30 minute break for food/cake/presents, etc. The cost starts at $20pp with a $200 minimum. There is no set time we set aside for parties. Any timeframe works for us as long as we don't have something already scheduled.

Corporate Events

Whether it is a corporate event or a team-building exercise, Tipsy Paint will customize a unique, energetic and fulfilling experience for your team. We will coordinate with you on specific requests or you can choose from our current options.

(1) Group Mural: 
We divide you into groups and work together to paint on large canvases with pre-drawn line art. Combining all the completed canvases will give you the finished design of your choosing. Pricing includes our artist’s labor for line art and the instruction during the workshop; setup and cleaning fees; and all painting supplies. Pricing varies based on the size of the mural. Time required is typically 2-3 hours.


(2) Group Competition
Again, we divide you into groups and you collaborate with an artist to create the group’s own design. Everyone paints their respective group’s design on their own 16”×20” canvas. At the end, each group selects the best painting to be judged by the entire team which creates a little healthy competition. Pricing varies based on the number of artists needed to lead each group. Time required is also typically 2-3 hours.


(3) Follow the Leader: 
All guests follow along on their own canvas as our artist replicates an original piece selected in advance from the Tipsy Paint library. Additional artists, if needed, circulate to provide assistance. Guests take home their paintings. Pricing varies based on the number of additional artists needed. Time required can be either 2 or 3 hours.



(4) Pick a Painting: 
The organizer selects, in advance, up to 5 paintings from the Tipsy Paint library from which guests will choose the piece they’d like to paint at the event. Groups sit according to their chosen piece and follow the artist instructing their selected painting. Guests take home their paintings. Pricing varies based on the number of artists needed to lead each painting. Time required can be either 2 or 3 hours.
