Meet Our Artists

We’re making painting more palatable.

Have you never painted before? Are you an up-and-coming Picasso? Everyone is welcome! Grab a drink as our artist walks you through painting your very own masterpiece from start to finish.

Register for the painting (or date) of your choice and show up ready to paint! We supply everything you need including aprons, brushes, easels, palettes, paint, and canvas. If you’ve never painted before don’t worry, our instructor will walk you through the entire process. We also offer one-on-one help during the class and plenty of time to complete your work of art. Come paint and sip at Art on Tap!

Caitlin Sise-Owner/Bartender/Instructor

Caitlin has been drawing, painting, and generally creating from a very young age. She attended Alfred University where she received her Bachelor’s in Fine Art. From there she shifted gears and expanded upon her minor in Business by completing her Master’s in Business Administration at RIT.  After moving back to the Capital District, together the combination of Art and Business created the perfect background for an art studio ownership to blossom. The nationally growing trend of “Paint and Sip” studios caught her attention, and so Art on Tap was created. Most classes you will find her at the studio teaching, helping out, or pouring drinks!
