Team Builder & Corporate Events
Painting is one of those rare activities that everyone, at any age, or skill level can do. It’s a level playing field for all. We challenge everyone to step up, get outside their comfort zone, and learn some new tricks. We have hosted Bankers, Accountants, Police Chiefs, Medical Offices, and Hair Salons. Corporate team builders are fun, affordable, and effective! Choose a painting from our extensive database, or create one of your own. Work on your own painting, or pass them around. Give us a call so we can explore your options together!
Our public calendar showcases a wide array of events that will appeal to kids, families, couples, and singles. Choose the painting you want to paint and sign up right online. Public classes are made up of singles, couples on a date night, and groups who sit together within the larger group. Online reservations are preferred, but we will always accommodate walk ins.
Adult Painting Parties
We can host any kind of party. Family parties. Sweet 16. Anniversary. Going Away. Welcome Home. Girls Night Out. Kindergarten Moms. You name it, we can do it.
Throw yourself, or someone you love, a memorable birthday party. You choose the painting for the group, bring your favorite foods and BYOB. A two hour painting turns into a three hour party, so there is plenty of time to socialize!
Let us host your next fundraiser! We can help you create a memorable and successful event. Our studios each have a main studio, and a smaller studio we call “The Art Lounge”. Between the two rooms we can host upwards of seventy people. Your charity makes money on each seat sold. You can also run a tricky tray, a 50/50 raffle, or whatever you want to add to the mix. Give us a call to plan your next event!
Kids Birthday Parties
Kids age 7-11 really enjoy their painting parties. The birthday child chooses the image. Invite friends and family, bring the cake, some snack, order pizza, whatever you like. We work the painting and the party into a seamless 2 hour fun event. Everyone leaves with the one of a kind party favor they have created!
Off Site Events
We are equipped to handle off site events from 20 to 100 people. We have created events at community clubs, bowling alleys, country clubs, restaurants, lodges, corporate headquarters and sporting arenas. We have held events at Ruths Chris Steakhouse, Time Warner in NYC, and at the Prudential Center for the NJ Devils just to name a few. Give us a call with your ideas and lets make it happen!
Date Night at Uptown Art is always a special night out. While we know the ladies love to sip and paint, it is often a new experience for the guys. The guys tend to reconnect with their inner artist, relax, and unwind. They completely forget about work and focus on their painting. It’s always the guys who go home having had a better time than they ever thought possible. You have to try this.
Date night options include:
One Image: Split the image into two halves and create a diptych- a two panel set. Work together on both pieces for a unified look, or paint each one individually. You will leave with two canvases that each hold half the overall painting.
Two Images: Paint your own canvas and make it a competition. Sign the back of the canvas and challenge house guests to guess who painted each one.
Paint Your Pet
Paint Your Pet is one of our most popular events. You email us a nice facial shot of your pet. We sketch it onto your canvas and help you recreate your special fur baby. Over the years we have painted hundreds of dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, hamsters, rats, birds, snakes, and yes, one unicorn.
If you have a pet you adore, you need to do this!
Bridal Shower & Bachelorette Parties
This is a bridal event you can take grandma to. The bride-to-be chooses an image that speaks to her. A beach where they got engaged. The Eiffel Tower, a lighthouse, or even a custom painting we create for her. Everyone leaves with a lovely keepsake they created.
When a baby is on the way, the parents aren’t the only ones that get excited. Odds are that the future grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, and other loved ones will also be eager to welcome the newest member of the family! Bring everyone together to paint something meaningful to mom and dad, or decorate the baby’s new nursery. Choose a class of wall art, tote bags, bibs, or custom onesies for those monthly photo updates!
Wooden Signs, Boards, & Pallets
At Uptown Art, we do wood right! We build all of our wooden boards, signs, and pallets out of real wood in our own wood shop. Every piece is different, so your piece is truly a one of a kind. Enjoy and enhance the grain, knots, and saw cuts as you stain your background. Customize your sayings, and your colors. Add real artwork, aided by our talented artists. There is nothing “cookie cutter” about of wooden projects, and nobody will think you bought it at a big box store.
Wine Glass Painting
Your favorite wine glass should be a reflection of you! Our wine glass classes are not step by step, but rather an aided workshop where creativity flourishes, and unique wine glasses are created. We provide the proper paint, brushes, ideas, and curing instructions. Choose two or four glasses, red or white. Maybe a beer mug or mason jar. All you need to bring is your creativity.
We have hosted many themed events such as Harry Potter Trivia Night, Disney Trivia, Friends Trivia, The Office Trivia, and Stranger Things Trivia. Each event features an image that is inspired by the original themes.
We have also done advanced classes where participants paint a 30 x 40 canvas over the course of two or three evenings.

Paint-less Parties! (RENT OUR SPACE!)
Want to throw a party or a business meeting but don’t have the space or the parking? You can rent our space for a nominal fee. We can move out the easels and paint brushes and let you decorate the tables in your tablecloths and centerpieces. Use our audio system for music and presentations. Stream slide shows to our flat screen TVs. Move the tables to create a dance floor. Cater in the food from one of Denville’s excellent restaurants. Hey, its your party. You make it fun. We make it easy.
