Painting with Rita

provides acrylic painting events at local restaurants and wine bars, as well as private events at various locations, including your home or business.  When you join us for an event, you get to enjoy the delicious cuisine and beverages of our venues, while recreating fun and colorful paintings with your friends, family or co-workers.  You can even come alone and make some new friends!

Starting in October 2017, Painting with Rita began adding semi-private Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique® Floral oil painting classes to our line-up.  NOTE:  Due to the nature of oil paints, we will not typically be holding these classes in our regular restaurant venues.  Please see our calendar of events, or contact us for more information about these fabulous new classes.

A message from Rita:  As the owner / artist / instructor of Painting with Rita, I enjoy the privilege of instructing fun and creative, step-by-step painting events to wonderful guests of all ages and with a variety of artistic experience – or none at all!  Our events have been hosted at hotels, restaurants and wine bars, as well as private venues, in Folsom, Citrus Heights, Sacramento, Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Roseville, Lodi and more.

Your registration with us covers all the supplies and painting instruction for a 2-3+ hour event, and food and beverages can be purchased directly from our host venues.  (You are encouraged to enjoy lunch or dinner while you paint.)

Some of our locations are age 21+ only, and patrons will partake in wine, beer, or cocktails to alleviate any inhibitions while they paint.  We also have at least one family-oriented venue where Mom & Dad can still have adult beverages, but they are welcome to have their teen children (age 12 and up*) join them for our painting events.

While our paint and sip events are a fun activity for a girl’s night or date night, if you’re doing some event planning, we also provide private events for corporate team building, bridal & baby showers, teen birthday parties, Girl Scout/Brownie painting badge events, fundraising, and much, much more!  In addition to the entertainment-based paint party, I also provide more personalized, ongoing painting lessons and art classes for smaller groups and individuals who are looking for a more educational experience.

Why should you come and paint with us?  So often, out in the real world, we have to limit our self-expression and keep ourselves subdued.  That is not the case at Painting with Rita events!  While we are here to provide guidance, and to assist you in creating the painting of the day, you are welcome to let your creativity flow and change up the colors or even paint something else entirely if that’s what you choose.

Art can be a joyful adventure, and we hope that you’ll join us on the journey by registering for one of our upcoming painting events or classes.  We are here to assist and inspire, and at Painting with Rita events we create a safe space where you can . . .
