They have 3 hour classes and instructors for a sample painting. You can paint your own picture as well. the instructors are very helpful as well on a 16X20 size picture. It is a fun time and a lot of groups do it together. They have a bar available for refreshments if needed. You can also purchase other painting if... More

My 2 friends and I are NOT artists, but we felt like artists at the Splash Studio. The step-by-step instructions helped all 3 of us create of first ever canvas paintings. It was so much fun! Sit down, have a drink, and paint! We will definitely be doing this again!

Splash studio is a great venue. Three hours of fun at a very reasonable price. Get a drink and get creative. It's incredibly easy to follow the instructions and produce a "masterpiece". The staff was great. Can't wait to do it again.

I stumbled upon Splash Studio while strolling in Third Ward. Just walked in and found out about Splash Studio. I went here twice during my stay in MKE. Great location in Third Ward, walking distance from eateries. It provides a great place for - painting enthusiasts, dates, team building, family time or hanging out. You can either enroll for one...

This was where my boyfriend and I had our first date, and we've been coming here every year since. You can paint with a class or paint individually, which is what we usually do. If you're stuck on ideas as to what to paint, they have books and paintings on the wall for ideas. And if you are still searching... More

I have to admit I was very hesitant to go here. My experience in painting is limited to splashing gray paint on old navy ships. But I had one of the best nights here I have experienced in a long time. First, it is a bar, and our group limited ourselves to beers which were cold and nice. But the... More

This was better than going to a night club! This place was packed with a wide range of people all looking to have a good time. I'd never been to a painting bar but, I'd been wanting to go for a while and boy o boy I cannot wait to go back! Drinks and Painting. I was relaxed and excited!... More

A fun afternoon painting at Splash Studio. They did a great job explaining how and what to paint and made it super easy for us. The staff was friendly and it was great to spend the afternoon trying something new.

We were part of a record crowd today - 158 people - and seating was tight, but the cheerful staff kept everyone organized. Our bar seats worked out well, giving us the height to see the lead artist as she painted (though it was hard to find room for everything). Biggest con: the driving music put me back in the... More

I went here tonight with 5 friends and we had a blast! Half of us followed instructions, half of us broke the rules. We all had a great time! It's a fun and casual atmosphere, and we're already planing on making another ladies night there.
