Paint on Tap brings one of the first "paint and sip" studios to the Buffalo, NY area! Located at 5762 Main Street in the Village of Williamsville, you can spend a session in the studio for a two-hour painting class, where an instructor leads in a fun, friendly environment. With easy-to-follow instructions and staff assistance, you can create your own masterpiece in just one evening, with no training, experience or equipment needed!


At Paint on Tap, art is just the beginning. The studio boasts its own bar, so you’re able to enjoy wine and beer during your painting experience.

In addition to regular weekly classes, the studio welcomes private sessions, including birthday parties, corporate functions and showers.

Finding Answers to Questions

What time does class start?
Please arrive 15 minutes early to your class/private party to leave time to grab a drink and find a place to sit.  We will not make the entire class wait if we are missing some people, but we will definitely catch you up once you arrive!  If no one registers for a class by noon the day of we will cancel the class and remove it from the calendar. 

Do I need to have painting experience to do well in a class?
Not at all! Our class is run by professional art instructors that walk participants through every step of the process. All skill levels are welcome!  We have difficulty levels posted on all our paintings. 
= Easy...this won't interrupt any conversations, ★★ = May need a glass or two to relax the nerves, ★★★ = Doable, but we wouldn't really recommend this on your first try, and ★★★★ = Good luck! :)

Will our group be able to sit together?
We do what we can to accommodate every group.  The tables have 5 settings each and we recommend at least one person from your party gets there by at least 6:40.  If you show up last there is no guarantee that you will be able to sit together.
