We took the traditional paint and wine activity, and spiced it up with adorable animals!

Over the years, group-led painting classes have always been popular, but we thought they could be more fun. Thus, the idea of a paint and sip class with exotic animals as the artist's muse was born! 

Join us as we host Paint-N-Sip at local restaurants around the Delaware area. Guests will enjoy a night full of fun and laughter as an instructor guides you to creating a masterpiece. You will also get to watch our animal ambassador paint their own self-portrait!

This fun-filled event is for ages 12 & up, and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. At the end of the evening, we will raffle off our ambassador's painting and allow all participants to get a closer look at them.
