Cheers N Paint Studio | How It All Began
CHEERS to our NEW STUDIO! CHEERS to new beginnings! CHEERS to success!
Our story began over 3 years ago when Bob saw a paint and sip art business for sale. Our family has always been interested in owning a business. Our daughter, Lauren, is an artist with a background in education. Bob and I had spent our careers in the corporate world in human resources, finance, and real estate. With retirement nearing, we felt it was time to have some fun, realize our dream and go for it! Lauren was looking to take her hobby and make it a career. So, an art studio was a natural fit. In March, 2020 our family bought Cheers and Paint!
Excited by our new adventure we were immediately faced with the unexpected challenges of COVID and closings all while learning a new business. Baptism by fire for sure. The silver lining made us think outside the box and develop new ideas to keep our business open. Happily, we weathered that storm and look back now on some great memories and accomplishments!
We’ve enjoyed building a business where people can come, relax, enjoy, create, and have fun. It’s so important to have creative outlets and we’re really enjoying being a part of something that makes people feel happy and productive.
The timing is right. We signed a 5-year lease recently, and we’ve decided now is the time to invest and reenergize our business. The big news is we are CELEBRATING OUR SUCCESS WITH A STUDIO RENOVATION! Working in the studio has given us an understanding about how the studio is used and what our customers enjoy when they come to a party or class.
Paint and Sip Studio Renovations at Cheers N Paint
Cheers and Paint will close on Monday, August 28th, and reopen with an exciting new look on September 9th. Our grand reopening will feature special painting events and prizes throughout September. Check our website at cheersnpaint.com, follow us on Facebook or join our newsletter mailing list for all the exciting details. Feel free to stop by the studio the weekend of September 9-10th to check us out. We will be keeping our current pricing for the month of September too.
Of course, none of this would be possible without our customers. We’ve listened to your suggestions, saw what you’ve enjoyed and improved our offerings as we went along. Acrylic pour-flow art and chunky hand-knit blankets were very popular additions.
Summer Art Camp in Cary, NC
One of most successful forays was into the world of kid’s art classes. Lauren learned to paint at a local studio run by one artist in the basement of her home. Once a week she attended painting classes for years. High school and college offered formal training in art. That memory of her painting classes at a young age led the way to a kid’s weekly art class called Little Splatters. An advanced kid’s class has been added as our student’s talents grew.
We’ve just finished our third year of summer art camp with 278 campers attending, many for multiple weeks and many returning from previous years! We also ran offsite camp at local rec departments for another 200 campers. Kids love our summer camp, and many parents have asked for more camps. We listened and now offer track-out camps, too!
New Adult Art Classes
Why should the kids have all the fun! Adults need time to relax, enjoy, and create too. Our paint and sip business is still a mainstay of Cheers and Paint. We love to create memories for our adult customers! Over the years we’ve had so many memorable painting events, and we’ve loved being part of your celebrations no matter what the occasion or size of your party. We even had a marriage proposal at a Valentines’ Day couples paint night!
Reserve a Private Party at Cheers N Paint
Are you celebrating a special occasion? Make it memorable with a private paint party at our studio. Looking for a fun, creative and different night out with your BFF, partner, friends? Come to a public painting event offered every weekend at our place. Check our calendar on our website to register to paint your favorite canvas. Then grab some snacks, order a pizza, bring some dessert along with your favorite adult beverage (alcohol less than 16% only) or special cup of coffee and come to the studio. It’s a entertaining and reasonably priced night out! Plus you’ll go home with a piece of art as a memory.
Companies, apartment complexes, college sororities and more all love to set up team-building events or business socials at our studio too! We can even come to your place.
Pet lovers, we haven’t forgotten you and will continue our Paint Your Pet classes, so popular it often sells out. Crafters remember our chunky blanket classes, just in time for fall football games or snuggling up on the couch with a good book.
Thrilled we can continue MAKING MEMORIES with PAINT!
