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.

What does “no experience required” mean exactly?
‘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?
On Thursday & Friday 1-8, Saturday 11-8, you can walk in off the street (alone or with a group) and get creative!  (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 prices range from $4-60 with an average of $30.
This is great for family time because all ages are welcome – just you and your friends, kids or grandkids painting a masterpiece!
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 (and of course 21+ to sip!).  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 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, but the general prices are $35 per adult painter and $25 per child painter.  We require six or more painters (or a minimum of $210 for adults, $150 for kids) to book a party.  Groups of 10 or more painters get a $5 per painter price reduction.  Parties can pick one painting that an instructor will lead the group through, or can do more of an open studio session, where individuals can pick their own paintings and start with a sketched canvas.  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. We do not provide any paper products such as plates or cups.  Please note that we do not charge a space rental fee.  We will book two parties at the same time if we have available instructors and space allows.

Cancellation/Refund policy: If you have paid a deposit for a private party and need to cancel for any reason, we will offer a refund only if you notify us at least a week prior to the party; 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 jessica@stachestudio.net 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!
