The Sipping Muse was born from a love of art and entertaining. Our goal is to provide a fun environment where you can get away from the hectic pace of life and indulge yourself on a journey of creativity. We provide an opportunity for a different type of entertainment experience which can be shared with family, friends, colleagues or even just to enjoy a moment by yourself.
We are a creative arts and BYOB studio… and here is what makes The Sipping Muse special:
- The Sipping Muse has experienced artists who can teach the step by step techniques needed to create a painting. No experience is necessary to walk away with your own masterpiece!
- The Sipping Muse can customize a private painting event for special occasions like birthday parties, bachelorette parties, retirement parties, family reunions, mommy groups, charity/fund raisers, corporate social events or team building.
- The Sipping Muse can provide a private artist to come to your home and paint a custom painting just for you… for special announcements or occasions like “we’re expecting”, a baby gender reveal, a marriage proposal, an engagement announcement and more.
- The Sipping Muse offers opportunities to explore other options beyond painting on canvases, such as wine and other glasses, wine bottles, holiday ornaments, vases, wood and photo frames. We also have many ideas on how to enhance the creative process through decoupage, lights, glitter, and words. Our creativity is limitless!
- The Sipping Muse plans special painting events for children, couples, sport lovers, animal lovers, holiday themes in addition to our schedule of pre-selected original paintings by our studio artists.
- The Sipping Muse seeks opportunities to team up with local groups for fundraising events.
- The Sipping Muse helps commemorate special holidays with events like painting your child’s hand or foot print on a flower pot for Mother’s Day; painting flowers on stepping stones as Easter gifts for gardening enthusiasts; painting a favorite sport or sports team on a Beer Mug for Father’s Day; painting a favorite pet for a friend’s birthday.
- The Sipping Muse delights in creating special art just for your event. If you have a certain theme in mind, or an example of a piece of artwork or art project you like, one of our studio artists can design an original and then walk you and your guests through the process of creating your own masterpieces.
- The Sipping Muse is a studio where you can find your own inspiration and come in during our open studio hours and paint until your heart’s delight!
- The Sipping Muse is also environmentally conscious, limiting the number of disposable items we use in the studio. For example, we use glass mason jars to rinse out your brush while painting instead of plastic cups, we also use “drop clothes” as table covers instead of putting down paper (the use of clothes also eliminates the need to use extra paper towel while painting), we recycle as much as possible and have recycle cans available in the studio.
- The Sipping Muse also does it best to source supplies from other local Wheaton businesses, teaming up with Carlson Art Supply store, Carlson Hardware store, Blick Art Supply. Our lawyers and accountants are also Wheaton based businesses. In addition, we support the Wheaton Downtown Association and will soon be part of the Chamber of Commerce, and will participate in many community events throughout the year.
