Event Description: 

Fashion and painting is the perfect marriage. Join us at our popular studio in the Chelsea area to talk all things New York and fashion. While we set up your palettes, grab a drink from our wine bar and socialize with your team! Once we hand out your sneaker size and prepare your shoe for painting, we'll walk you through how to create a painting of your choice on your little or big shoe. Sip, laugh, paint, and then walk out with a new, comfy, and cool sneaker to take home and wear all together to make other teams jealous! Snap photos and tag us so we can see where you're taking your new kicks.

We have a wine & beer bar with drinks available for purchase, or guests can bring their own wine/beer for a $5 per bottle corkage fee (to be paid at the end of your event).

Event Itinerary: 

We'll start with taping our soles to keep them clean. 

  1. We'll go over art inspiration or ideas you would like to execute on your sneaker. Tell us your vision for your new sneaker. 
  2. Next it's time to paint! We'll start working on our sneakers. We'll start with the background and let it dry. We'll use various techniques from pencil to sharpie to painting to create a pair of sneakers you'll proudly wear out in public! 
  3. After this we'll share our work. We'll blow dry our sneakers and snap photos for the 'gram and maybe even boomerang you walking in your new sneakers.
  4. Finally we'll have farewells. We provide bags to carry out new favorite shoes or your old ones if you love your new sneakers that much. We say see you later because you'll be back!
