Does drawing a stick figure give you anxiety? You probably weren’t an artsy kid then. Maybe you would like to get over your fear or just learn a new skill? Art in any form is a great hobby; it can be therapeutic, but also wildly imaginative. Awake your inner Picasso with these engaging art classes in NYC. Newbies are welcome!

The Painting Lounge

Bring your own beer to any class at The Painting Lounge to take the edge off. Supplies are included in the class prices, so you can go, drink and take home a grand masterpiece! Each class has participants paint a famous painting. When you view their calendar before buying your seat you can see what the class will be painting during that session. Recreate an Andy Warhol or Van Gogh with the help of instructors; no one will ever know the difference between your work of art and the original!

The Painting Lounge offers split paintings as well, meaning couples or friends can each paint their own side of the painting, put it together and voila, a masterpiece!
