The most relaxing place to be!! Always a great time and the teachers are the best!
I have hated painting since kindergart
en, unless it was a wall. I suck at it. When I suggested this to my girlfriend s as something they may want to do someday with other friends, they jumped on it,... and made me set it up, since I suggested it and since the owners are family. I was dreading the experience , quite frankly. To be honest, I planned to drink a lot and paint stick people. Instead, we all had a blast and even my picture of the coffee mugs actually turned out pretty good. All of ours did. We laughed and painted in a relaxed atmosphere . There were some people there we did not know and they did not complain about our silliness. I highly recommend that you check this out. Make a day of it. Clarinda has some nice restaurant s and some shopping. Set up a session for your family, for a girls gathering, bridal party, couples get together, kids birthday party, private party or join in by yourself. The last I knew they were even willing to come to your town. There is a great selection of art to choose from and they instruct you step by step, which I needed!! This was much easier than art class they forced you to take in jr high. Kurt and Yulia and their staff will make you feel like family. They have drinks for the refreshmen t or courage!! I can almost 100% guarantee (there's a negative Nelly in almost every group) that you will have fun and go home with a painting that you will, at least, be pleasantly pleased with. I did. I plan to go back again, just have to find the time. Give it a try. You will have a blast!
I had so much fun tonight with Painting Barn Studio and Wabash Wine Company! I will definitely
recommend this to friends and will come back to do this again...ev en if I have to drive over to Clarinda.... The step by step directions are easy to follow and I was pleased with my finished product. Plus, it's just a fun, relaxing night to chat, sip some wine, and paint. What more could you ask for?! ;)

This is my third time. I have gone with my daughter, sister and a group. It has always been enjoyable.
The people that say I have no artistic ability are always surprised and happy after the class.

s! I always have so much fun here!
The painter was great and was very helpful! As a beginner, I had a good time and got the hang of it. The hosts were very accommodat
ing for all styles and levels.
My daughter and I do these together. This is like our 4th one. We have a great time and learn something in the process. It's our mother / daughter time together. Can't wait to do it again.
Always love coming up here to paint! It's my little personal getaway! The owners are amazing and wonderful to be around! Always making sure you are comfortabl
e and asking if you need anything! I alway...s have so much fun (even if I don't look like it, I'm very focused when I paint) LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
