Painting in the Vineyard - Santa Barbara Wine Country
Come Paint With Us in the Vineyards of the Santa Ynez Valley
Located about 45 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley is home to some of the most beautiful vistas, world-renowned vineyards, and world-class wines in California. We invite you to join us, grab a glass of wine and a paintbrush, and meet us in the vineyard for an unforgettable event. Whether you're here in "the Valley" or driving up from Santa Barbara for the day, we promise you an experience like no other that engages all of your senses.
How It Works
Our Paint in the Vineyard events are open to the general public. They are held outside in the morning (start times between 10 & 11am) and run about 3 hours. Events include a tasting or glass of wine from the host vineyard. We provide all the supplies needed (tables & chairs included), and all participants will leave with a vineyard masterpiece of their own–of the view from your location! Local Art Spot artists provide step-by-step instruction and encouragement for painters.
What if I Can't Paint?
If you’re thinking, "I don’t have an artistic bone in my body," or "but, I don’t know how to paint," don’t worry! A trained artist will walk you through the entire painting process step-by-step. Even if you’ve never painted before, you’ll be amazed at what you can create! Check our calendar for locations, details and to make a reservation.
