Create memories and artwork with a fun night out at Hoover’s Pinot’s Palette. The Patton Creek studio offers painting classes for all ages and experience levels.

Tamie Boychuk, an Alabama native, opened Pinot’s Palette on Nov. 20. It was during her time living in Tampa that sparked the idea and helped fuel her passion for arts and crafts. She visited a paint-and-drink studio there and really enjoyed it.

“I wanted to open something fun and rewarding,” she says. “There was no better place to do that than here in Alabama.”

So, Boychuk moved back home to Alabama to make her dream a reality, opening Pinot’s Palette in Patton Creek.

“Patton Creek was the only choice for me,” she explains. “When I thought about where I wanted to be, I looked for a great location and visibility. Patton Creek is a destination, not just somewhere you go to shop. The location is just unbeatable.”

Pinot’s Palette pairs painting and drinks to give people a fun, relaxing night out. There are a variety of paintings to choose from in the gallery, including seasonal, nature, nautical and animal designs.

“Anyone can be a Picasso with the right instructor,” she says. “No art experience is required. We’re not proving paint instruction classes — we lead you through painting.”

When people come in, they are introduced to the studio and where everything is that they may need. The tables are covered with chalkboard paint and have the person’s name on it. Boychuk suggests arriving about 30 minutes before the class begins to get settled in.

There’s an instructor and assistant for each paint class who help the members through the process. They offer both two- and three-hour classes.

“You can paint your very own masterpiece before you leave — no experience required,” Boychuk says. “It will show you what all you can do.”

The painting studio offers bottles and glasses of wine, and guests are also welcome to bring snacks to munch on. Everything else — including plates, napkins, glasses and silverware — is provided.

Boychuk says she see friends, families and couples at the studio. Couples can enjoy a unique painting experience where each person paints half of the painting. When they finish, they combine their work to create one painting.

Even the youngest art lovers can dabble with painting in Pinot’s Palette’s Little Brushes. Available for ages 6 to 13, the program tailors the painting experience to children.

The studio offers three- to four-hour classes for children to paint. They are also planning to have a Drop and Shop program where parents can leave their children to paint and create crafts while they get things done.

“They can come to learn about art and express themselves,” Boychuk says of Little Brushes.

Pinot’s Palette also hosts birthday parties, bridal showers and other private parties.

“It’s guaranteed fun. You’ll have a great night out with girlfriends or as a date night,” Boychuk says. “It’s an experience you’ll never forget. You’ll be able to create one-of-a-kind pieces.”

It costs $35 for a two-hour session and $45 for a three-hour class. Classes are offered Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

View and sign up for classes at People can also sign up at the studio before a class if there is still room. Follow Pinot’s Palette on social media for discounts and giveaways.
