Snack and Paint is locally owned and operated by empowered Coeur d’Alene women who want to make a difference in the lives of families and the CDA community. We see the demanding work schedules, absorbing tech devices, and budgets that can make it difficult to plan quality family time. Both parents and kids are looking for ways to connect in a positive way with each other, and a way to express themselves. We want to make it easy for you! Get out of the house and join us downtown for an affordable and unforgettable time.
Snack and Paint is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! In our classes, we use acrylic paints on 16″ x 20″ canvas and teach the class step-by-step through the specific painting of the day. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!
More importantly, we are an alcohol-free studio, making us a place that welcomes families of ALL ages ALL the time. We even offer a childcare area (limited availability).
Signing up is easy. Click the “Upcoming Events” tab at the top of the page OR “Reserve a Class” button to view our calendar of paintings. Select which painting you would like to paint and click “Add Painting to Cart.” Follow the on-screen directions to complete the order. Feel free to call us at 208-717-1163 if you have trouble completing your order and we will be more than happy to help you over the phone.
Our paint classes are $25 per person. Our classes include instruction by our top-notch, fabulous local artists, a 16×20″ cotton canvas, and use of our brushes, paint, easels, and aprons. Be sure to add yourself to our monthly email list for exclusive discounts and promotions!
We open our doors 30 minutes before the class, so feel free to come early to mingle with friends. All of our classes begin promptly at the scheduled time, so we recommend arriving 15-20 minutes beforehand to get settled.
We provide everything you need to create your own masterpiece (apron, canvas, brushes, paints, and step-by-step art instruction throughout the class). We provide free infused-water, a small snack and have nonalcoholic beverages and snacks available for purchase. Feel free to bring your own snacks or drinks to munch on while you paint.
Absolutely! We always make a seating chart for our public classes, that way we can ensure that your group is seated all together. Be sure to let us know who you’d like to be with when you make your reservation. All reservations paid together will automatically be seated together.
We hold classes at specific times and those are, currently, the only times guests can come in and paint. To join a class, please view our calendar (Link to Calendar), select a painting you like and register online. Pre-registration is required for all classes.
Of course! We are excited to offer ALL of our classes for young and old artists, alike! We are proud to be family friendly! We are one of the few studios where painters of ALL ages are welcome in the studio at ALL times. We even offer childcare for “too young artists” (limited availability, so secure a seat for your too young artist quickly).
Please note, our policy to cancel applies to all public and private events.
- We are happy to give studio credit for cancellations received 24 hours prior to class. We consider refunds on a case by case if received 24 hours in advance. No credit or refund is provided for less than 24 hours notice or No Shows.
- Bad Weather: Class will cancel if a weather emergency is declared, or we determine the roads to be too unsafe to travel on; otherwise, our cancellation policy is as stated above. In the rare case of a class cancellation due to poor weather conditions, studio credit will be issued to all registered guests. Please see our website for updates in a case of questionable weather.
- Late Arrivals: If you arrive late, it may be difficult to catch up to where we are in our instructions. No credit will be issued for late arrivals. Please arrive no later than 10 minutes before the scheduled class time, and we will have a blast!
Not a problem! Our talented artists make it easy for ANYONE to complete the painting. All of our paintings were created for people who have NEVER picked up a paintbrush, so you’ll be in good hands! Don’t believe us? Check out our Facebook page, where we always post a group photo of everyone with their paintings on our stage. They all always look beautiful!
We always release our calendar in the middle of the month. If you’d like to be alerted when the calendar goes live, feel free to add yourself to our monthly email list. That way you’ll get first dibs at signing up for classes before they sell out, exclusive offers, and a discount!
We provide an apron for you to wear, but people have been known to get some paint on their clothes from time to time. We recommend wearing something you’re comfortable in, that you wouldn’t be devastated if you got a bit of paint on.
NO! No age limit here!
Our assortment of drinks and snacks are only $0.50-2.00
