How is Jackson Art different from other paint and sip studios that I’ve heard about?

We are not a franchise. We are a local, independent owned business.  All of our paintings are original and created by us.  Our instructors have painting and teaching experience and are professional artists.  We enjoy making art less intimidating and more accessible to the average person. We teach our painters how to blend and mix color,  show perspective and shadow, brush techniques, and other ways to enhance their painting experience.

Can we host a private party at Jackson Art?

Yes! We can host a birthday party, corporate events, baby and wedding showers,  or a girls night out! The minimum number of seats required for a private party is 10 people. The cost is $45 per/person and you can pick any image you would like. We can travel to you for an extra fee of $10 per/person.
