We Are A Premiere Paint & Wine Company
Headquartered in Chico, CA, Painted Cellars was founded on a woman’s search for classy fun, relaxation, and socializing. Living in a new town, having outgrown the nightlife, and being bored from the typical day-to-day activities, Erika, founder and co-owner of Painted Cellars, was in search of doing something new, fun, and meeting new people.
With Erika’s creative imagination and experience with art therapy and her fiancé, Jason’s wine country roots and entrepreneurial spirit, both were set on a mission to create an unforgettable activity that included their joys of mingling with people, painting, and wine sipping.
Painted Cellars is a paint class designed for people who are also in search of trying something new, perhaps uncovering a hidden talent or stepping out from the ordinary night out, meeting new people, or simply wanting to relax after a long day at home or work. Classes include an art instructor that guides you step-by-step until you’ve completed your masterpiece. No painting experience is required, only a desire to relax, have fun, and paint!! Sipping wine is not frowned upon in these classes.
