About Our Local Studio

Elegant Studios, Inspired Art

At Bottle & Bottega Evanston, we believe that a beautiful setting is the key to creating beautiful art. Whether you attend one of our public paint and sip parties at our local studio in Evanston, Glenview, and Northbrook, or you host a private party at one of our pop-up venues, you’ll feel inspired by the warm and welcoming environment we strive to create. We’re less focused on “perfect” art (though we think you may be surprised by just how great your piece comes out!) and more focused on having a good time. Our artist instructors cultivate an inspiring, encouraging atmosphere as they offer easy-to-follow artistic guidance designed to help you unleash your inner creativity. We provide all the supplies you need to create a beautiful piece of art you’ll be proud to display in your home and memories that will last forever.
