Merlot’s Masterpiece ® is a sip and paint DC studio in Washington DC’s U Street Corridor, where you can paint, drink wine, and enjoy a fun night out with friends and good company.

Sip and Paint DC


Participants must be 21+ to drink at our wine and painting DC sessions.  We provide the art supplies, canvas and smocks to cover your clothes.  No experience is needed!  If you know how to draw a stick figure we can teach you how to paint your very own masterpiece to take home.  A selection of wine is available for purchase in our studio (view our sip list) or you can bring your own bottle of wine or beer (BYOB fee applies) to enhance your paint and wine experience.


Register for a sip and paint DC class by clicking “Register” in our menu bar.  Select a sip and paint class by the painting you want to recreate.  An artist will guide you step by step on how to recreate a masterpiece by famous artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet, and more.  You are also welcome to freestyle and paint whatever inspires you. (Classes for the next month are uploaded no later that the 18th of the current month)
