The Studio 561 is a spacious, creative center for art classes and events nestled among the oaks of the Lindo Channel in Chico, California. We welcome beginners and established painters alike and enjoy developing community and camaraderie as we create.
The Studio seats 40 painters and is available for private classes, paint parties and team building groups. We also offer art therapy, specialized classes for focused needs as well as general classes and parties on a weekly basis. You can find out about our upcoming classes or book your own private event here. I hope to paint with you soon!
“Love Christine Mac Shane's studio. Whether I arrange to meet up a group of friends or head over by myself it's always a great evening. Sometimes a little creativity is just what you need.”
“Christine and Studio 561 were just what I needed to spark the artistic flame that had been smoldering for years. From the amazingly creative vibe of the studio and Christine's easy going teaching style to meeting new friends, the studio is definitely my happy place.”
“I would recommend Christine's sip and paint classes for any client event. Christine is an inspiring and light hearted painting instructor. The studio is a creative space that can be configured for various size groups and catering needs. My clients had a great time learning to paint. This was one of the more impactful client events I held.”
