What is Play with Pigments?

We are an art and party studio. We provide the art supplies and instruction for you to explore your creativity in a fun and relaxing environment. Bring a friend and follow along as Makara walks you, step-by-step, through replicating that day’s featured painting. No experience necessary!

How long are classes?

Classes run for approximately 2-3 hours with breaks sprinkled in. Sometimes we have so much fun that we go a bit past our scheduled time, so please allow for some flexibility. You will leave with a painting that is uniquely yours, and we guarantee you will be amazed at the artwork you will have created.

I am only creative when it comes to photography, but Makara’s birch tree painting was moderately easy. I had my doubts about my skills until the end and I absolutely LOVE the end result so much. She literally walked us through it step-by-step while encouraging us to make it our own work of art. It was such a great night with friends and wine :). I can’t wait to do it again! -Crystal A.

Such a fun and educational evening! Ive never painted before and I was so excited about my results!!! The instructor was amazing! I painted with such confidence at her encouragement! I will definitely be doing this again—all my fiends want to paint with me as well:-). -Blair A.

I had never done a painting before and she was really good at explaining step by step how to do it. I had an absolutely amazing time and will definitely be doing it again. Thank you so much for an amazing class!! -Arlene

I can’t even draw a stick figure. But I went to Makara’s paint night for the one with birch trees and had tons of fun. And I love my trees even if they are …original! lol. Definitely recommended! -Julie N.

This was so much fun and so so easy to learn!!! I can’t wait to do it again. -Holly C.

Today was my second experience with play with pigments and loved it! Love that we are all taught the same thing and they turn or so different. -Jennifer M.
