116 S. Sixth Street, Downtown Griffin
We’re located one block south of the Park at Sixth and across the street from Sixth Street Pier.
We have an eight-foot mustache on the side of our building that faces Taylor Street, so you can’t miss us!
Parking: The parking lot across the alley from us is privately rented by Sixth Street Pier. Unless you are dining at Sixth Street Pier before or after one of our classes, please do not park there. We have street parking in front of and beside our building, and the parking deck that is located just half a block west from us is available for public use. Just make sure to read the signs and observe the reserved parking restrictions on the first level during business hours.
When are you open?
DROP IN WITHOUT APPOINTMENT: Tuesday-Wednesday 10-5 and Thursday – Saturday 10-8! We have public paint nite classes (reservations suggested) Thursday & Saturday usually at 6pm (calendar of paintings here) Call to check our calendar for private party availabilities. The best way to keep up with classes, programs & workshops is to like us on Facebook.
What does “no experience required” mean?
‘stache studio is a no-experience-required art school that hosts fun paint and sip classes and birthday parties for children and adults, as well as a few more technique-based classes. We promise that anyone, anyone can come into ‘stache studio and leave with something they’re proud of. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never wielded a paintbrush in your life, our instructors will patiently walk you through the painting step by step.
How do your classes work?
Our regularly-schedued paint and sip sessions are on Thursdays and Saturdays. These sessions are open to the public, (kids ages 10+ welcome with parent) and our instructors will be teaching a specific painting that night. Check our calendar to see what the painting is, and if you would like to join the session, give us a call at 770-713-5943 to register. Pay cash or card at the door, and then get to painting! We reserve the right to cancel classes if we have fewer than six sign ups. See “cancelations” for further information.
What do I need to bring to a class and what should I wear?
Just yourself, wearing clothes you wouldn’t be devastated about if they got a little paint on them. Acrylic paint does NOT come out of clothing. (Believe us, we’ve tried. We have paint on every clothing item we own.)
What is open studio?
We’re open five days per week for drop-ins, classes and private parties! No appointment necessary Tuesday-Wednesday 10-5 and Thursday-Saturday 10-8. Whether you come alone, with friends or with family, you can drop in and get creative with canvas, ceramics, mosaics, and door hangers. This is great news if you fall in love with a painting or workshop but can’t make that particular date and time! (We recommend adults starting two hours prior to the end time, and children at least one hour before to allow plenty of time to finish the paintings.)
Canvas prices range from $25-$35 and pottery, mosaics and wooden project prices range from $4-60 with an average of $30.
We have experienced instructors on hand to coach you through your desired painting or design. We also have stencils, templates, tracing paper and inspirational books to help you along the way!
How old do you have to be to paint?
Most of our paint and sip classes are for ages 10 and up. We set this requirement because our patrons are often moms who are having a girls night out for a little time away from their own bundles of joy.
Can I bring my small children to the evening painting class?
Again, even if they’re not painting, please do not bring anyone under the age of 10 to public classes. We want everyone to have the most relaxing, enjoyable, artistic time possible. If you’d like to paint with your small child, please bring them during open studio hours (see above) or schedule a private party.
Can my friend/aunt/husband/monkey’s uncle come watch me paint?
While our sessions are all about having fun and social masterpiecing, we have to have a policy against spectators for several reasons. First – we believe that anyone and everyone can/should/could/would paint! Second, the stool that this spectator would use could possibly take away a seat from a paying patron, so we have to say no.
Can I have my birthday party/bachelorette/baby shower/girls night out party there?
We book parties for all occasions and all ages throughout the week! Call us at 770-713-5943 to discuss particulars, and check out the “Parties” tab at the top of our page to see all of our different offerings and their prices. Party bookings come with two hours of time in our studio – which is normally plenty of time to complete a painting and enjoy refreshments and gifts. Bring any food and drink you’d like, but please note we do not provide any paper products such as table clothes, plates or cups.
Cancellation/Refund policy: Room fees are non-refundable. If you have paid a room fee for a private party or pre-paid for an event or class and need to cancel for any reason, we will offer a refund or credit for another class/date only if you notify us at least a week prior to the event; otherwise, your deposit is forfeited.
Do you offer any classes other than acrylic painting and pottery glazing?
Periodically, we offer workshops and technique-based classes that will be very different from our sip-n-paint staple. We’re thinking about oil painting, jewelry-making, knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting, and more. If you’re interested in something you don’t see here, or can teach something you see listed here, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing the following things: an explanation of the project; tools and materials needed; how many people you feel comfortable teaching; how much you’d charge per student and any other pertinent information!
Keep an eye on our website and calendar, and follow us on Facebook, which is where we put the majority of our news and updates!
