Meet Gretchen Wheeler . . .

G with crowdCocktails & Color was created in Sept. of 2013. Owner Gretchen Wheeler had seen other cities having “Paint and Wine” parties and knew it would be a perfect fit for Erie. Along with her husband Randy they now have three full-time crews that are holding an average of 40 events a month.

These canvas painting classes are held in bars and restaurants all over the Erie area and have become very popular. There are 8 different artists that teach for Cocktails & Color so your experience is always unique.

Each painting is created with the beginning painter in mind, although a more experienced artist is welcome to customize their masterpiece and make it their own.

A Cocktails & Color studio will be opening in Nov. 2014 which will offer participants an additional BYOB venue. We are available for private events and fundraisers, as well as team-building events and corporate parties.
