What is Vino’s Picasso?

Vino’s Picasso is a number of things! We are a paint studio where you can create your own work of art or join us for a session led by a local artist! We are not an art school. You don’t need any talent or experience. None!

We’re a gallery and feature original pieces from local artists! What a cool gift idea!

Vino’s Picasso is also a wine bar, selling a unique collection of varietals you can’t get in most of SWFL’s establishments! We also carry delicious beers for the beer lover in your life. Our instructed sessions are also B.Y.O.B. (bring your own beer/wine) in our Fort Myers and Naples locations.

How does the paint studio work?

We are a paint studio that specializes in acrylic paint and offer two ways to visit us!

#1- Canvas or Coconut: Ages 3+ welcome! We supply everything you need to create your own painting but, no instruction. Canvas or Coconut is hosted several times a week.

$20- 11X14 stretched canvas or authentic Florida coconut

$30- 16×20 stretched canvas

$30- 18×24 stretched canvas or wood (if available)

Hours vary when there are no reservations so make sure to RSVP.

*Outside food/drinks not permitted during Canvas of Coconut. We sell delicious wine, beer, champagne, soda/water and snacks at great prices!

#2- INSTRUCTED PAINT PARTIES– A local artist will guide you through one of our unique and easy paintings. Visit the STUDIO pARTies tab for scheduled parties. Artist-led sessions vary between $20-$55 depending on the date, time, and featured piece and are BYOBeer/wine (excludes Matlacha Island) OR you can check out our delicious bar. After you’ve picked a painting from our calendar you can reserve online or call the studio. Full payment is due to hold your spot(s) and does not include wine or beer.

Can I paint whatever I want?

Absolutely! During Canvas or Coconut we supply EVERYTHING but, no instruction. You can use any of our pieces for inspiration (excludes Lovegrove Exclusives) or come with your own ideas! During our paint parties we want you to explore your artistic expression and are not offended by those that wish to create something different. However, we are scheduled to teach a designated piece and can not provide one-on-one instruction if you opt to create something different.

Do I have to make a reservation?

Reservations are a must! We like to have everything set up for you when you get here and need to staff our events properly. If you decide last minute that you would like to join us, reserve online or call to let us know you are coming! If you must cancel please call us at least 24 hours in advance. We do not offer refunds but will gladly reschedule your reservation. If you cancel the day of a $10 fee per person may apply.

I am interested in an artist-led session but what if I have no artistic talent whatsoever?

If you think you are artistically inept then you are just like most painters at Vino’s Picasso! Our paintings are easy and FUN and our artists have plenty of time to give you personal attention and solid direction. It is our priority to ensure that you walk out with something you had fun creating! 90% of our clients have never painted! Fear not!

Remember, Vino’s Picasso is not about fine art, but FUN art!

Do I need to bring my own painting supplies?

No! Vino’s Picasso has EVERYTHING you need! The paint, brushes, apron, palette, paint knives, water jars, canvas, easel. Bring your own wine glasses/mugs if you’d like! We have corkscrews and cups if you need them, but no ice of fridge.

Can I bring food?

Yes! Crackers, cheese and minor accompaniments are welcome. However, catering, large platters, pizzas, highly fragrant foods and rolling coolers are limited to private parties only. Note that space can be limited. We ask that you respect our request as well as the space of others in attendance. Liquor or gallons of any kind of drink are not permitted in the studio at any time.

You sell wine and beer but I can bring my own???

Yes! Vino’s Picasso is a wine bar and during instructed parties you can B.Y.O.B. so grab your own bottles of wine or beer off the shelf and come on down! If you want something different try one of ours. Some nights you may only want 1 glass of wine or a single beer. We have you taken care of! NOTE that we are not licensed for BYOB on Matlacha Island, but feel free to bring drinks and snacks!
