The Painting Broad started as a partnership of two friends who love to paint! We are an art studio that provides private and public painting parties for you and your friends, corporate events, Paint Your Own Pottery in our Fire Zone, children’s birthday parties, crafting events, couple/duo events, Paint With Me!, Art Zone Kids! events, fundraisers, bridal/baby showers, bachelorette parties, and tailored events to meet your specifications. Painting parties for all occasions! We pair instructional painting with friends, food, and FUN! We can even bring the art studio to you! Enjoy a private painting party in your venue or in our studio. We host painting parties five days a week in the studio in addition to twice monthly Wednesday night Art Zone Kids! events. We also host Paint with Me! parties for the littles one Wednesday morning and one Saturday morning per month. Every day we offer Open Studio where you can come in a paint a canvas of your choosing. If you want to bring a friend, give me a call and we’ll schedule a mini party! There is something for everyone!

We are located at 1 North Front Street in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania. We are on the corner of Front and Presqueisle Streets.

A typical public painting party is $30 per person for 2 hours of instruction. If you’d like to use the studio for your own private party, just give me a call for scheduling. We do have special discounted rates for seniors, scouts, and church groups. Just ask us for additional information on those. Most public kid events are $10 per painter.

We do!

The Painting Broad loves to host birthday parties in our studio. Child Birthday parties are for children ages 15 and under. For an 8×10” canvas, the cost is $18 per painter. If you’d like to paint pottery instead, the cost is $20 per painter.  Adult painters at a child party are an additional $3 per person. This cost includes the use of our studio for 2.5 hours (including a 30 minute pre-party set-up time and the painting takes approximately an hour). Each half hour beyond 2.5 hours is $25. We’d be happy to bring the mobile studio to you at your venue/home. Contact me for those details. If you’d like to upgrade your child’s party to the 11×14″ canvas, we can do that as well.


Young Adult birthday parties are for ages 16-18 years old and we use an 11×14″ canvas at $20 per painter. Adult painters at a Young Adult party are an additional $3 per person. This cost includes the use of our studio for 2.5 hours (including a 30 minute pre-party set-up time and the painting takes approximately an hour). Each half hour beyond 2.5 hours is $25. We’d be happy to bring the mobile studio to you at your venue/home. Contact me for additional information.


We do offer custom cupcakes that the attendees would decorate on a plastic artists’s palette for just $3 per cupcake. We also offer a custom personalized canvas board (designed in your preferred theme) for the birthday boy/girl where his/her guests would sign in and leave messages. It’s a wonderful memento of this special day. The canvas board is $20 and is created on an 11×14″ canvas panel.


You can choose a painting from our Facebook Gallery or website, or we can create a custom piece for you that reflects the interests of your group. A custom piece is an additional $25 charge.

Give us a call at 814-287-9001 or send us an email at to schedule!

None. Seriously. We walk you step-by-step through the painting process.

Typically our evening painting parties cater to adults, but we can custom tailor a class for all ages, individuals, groups, clubs, and organizations. No minimum number of attendees! Host an event at our studio. Or we can come to you! Contact me for scheduling! Set up, clean up, and all supplies included.

We have events for kids regularly at the studio. We offer painting, crafting, Back-to-School Craft Camp, a 5-evening Creative Arts Camp in the summer, and several other events tailored specifically for kids. These are usually $10-$25 per child to attend and if they can work independently, they are welcome to come without an adult.

Our twice monthly Wednesday night Art Zone Kids! parties are done on 8×10″ canvases and are $10 per painter. We also offer something for the little ones one Saturday morning a month and one Monday morning a month at Paint With Me! These are also 8×10″ projects and are $10 per painter.

Yes! You are welcome to bring a snack or drink for yourself. Each artist is also welcome to bring a snack to share, pot-luck style, if you’d like. (Sorry, no alcohol!)

Our studio is a family friendly venue for all ages. We do not allow alcohol in the studio. Alcohol at private venues is at the discretion of the host/hostess for the evening. You’ve probably heard of Sip ‘n Paint parties – just because we can’t offer alcohol at the studio doesn’t mean you can’t host your own! All you need is a space and we’ll bring the studio to you for $35 per person per 16×20″ canvas.

Not much. We want to make your event as seamless and enjoyable as possible. Basically you are responsible for a $50 non-refundable deposit which is deducted from the total cost of the party, then invite your family/friends, make decisions about food/drink, and work with us on choosing the painting for the evening. We take care of everything else so that the night of the event all you need to do is show up and have a great time!

The $50 deposit that’s required for all events is non-refundable because we have to hold that date on our calendar and order supplies, etc. You can transfer it to another date if you cancel in writing at least 72 hours in advance. Cancellation of a private party after that time frame forfeits the deposit. If you’ve paid for a class online and you have to cancel, we do not offer refunds, but you can use that payment and apply it to a future class. We understand that things happen and do our best to offer a flexible cancellation policy in the hopes that our clients will respect our time as well and do their best to honor their reservation. Those clients that repeatedly do not honor their reservations will be required to pay ahead for all future events.

You can reserve your seat and pay on our website via PayPal or credit card. If you’d like to pay in person with cash, personal check or credit card then reserve your seat on our website and print the confirmation receipt to bring with you. We do accept personal checks and credit cards the night of the event – select the “Reserve a Seat” option. A $35 return fee is applicable to any check that is returned to us from the bank.

We offer an Open Studio option any time the studio is open. We do run a monthly schedule, but please don’t let that deter you from painting something you’d like because you can’t make it on the night it is scheduled. You can stop in any time and paint a picture of your choosing or a work on a previous craft that we’ve done. We provide minimal instruction during Open Studio, but we are happy to schedule a private appointment for you (no additional charge) to complete the painting or craft that you missed! Just get in touch! Canvases are offered at an a la carte price. These evenings provide an opportunity for you to be in the studio, create, and  independently paint one of our paintings or make a craft we’ve previously made. It’s the perfect time to do a piece that you missed on our calendar! Calling ahead for an appointment is appreciated for crafts so that we can make sure we have the inventory and supplies available and set up for you when you arrive!

No reservation is required during normal business hours. However, we do ask that you call ahead if you will have more than 4 people in your group and a heads-up is always nice, but not necessary.

Yes! All our paints are non-toxic, lead free, and are food-safe. They are dishwasher safe as well.

The Fire Zone at The Painting Broad has great party packages for all ages.  Birthday Parties, Baby and Wedding Showers, Bachelorette Parties, and more. Private parties start at $20 per person in the Fire Zone.

Turn-around times may vary, but we fire every two weeks and more often if it’s needed.


We love what we do and we want to share it with you!

See you soon!
