Arts & Cats Painting Classes
We conduct "Arts & Cats" painting classes at the cafe. This is our version of the popular “sip and paint classes” which offer step-by-step instruction to help budding artists complete a painting. Our paintings are cat-themed (some samples pictured below). Canvases, acrylic paints, and instruction is provided, and you may even get some assistance from a cat or two! Classes are $30 each, typically last 1.5 to 2 hours, include admission to the cafe and a free drink, and are open to adults and children (if they have a long enough attention span!).
Paint-A-Cat Open Studio
Paint-A-Cat Open Studio is available to fit your schedule! For just $15 you can use our materials to paint on your own for up to two hours. Paintings must be completed no later than 5:00 pm on dates with scheduled Arts & Cats classes, and at least 30 minutes before closing on other dates. Instruction is not included. Please check at the front counter of the cafe for availability. You can also purchase open studio sessions in advance at a discount ($10 instead of $15) and a free drink will be included with your entry fee.
Teller Street Gallery & Studios
The good folk at Teller Street Gallery created Arts & Cats for the cat cafe and have been great friends to the kitties. If you want to do a non-cat painting (whilst sipping wine) in a gorgeous studio space owned by a small independent business owner, please check out Teller Street Gallery located just west of the cat cafe at 7190 W. 38th Ave. Their calendar of classes is here.
