COVID era changes...walk in studio and paint kits! While our large parties that require a ticket for admission are on hold until the pandemic is past, you can enjoy a SAFE walk in session in our classroom, or book a private Zoom party!
Paint Like ME! Party was created in 2013 by Mike and Elizabeth McDermith to fill a need in the local landscape for a fun,creative outlet for adults and kids alike to play with paint, while enjoying a couple hours out of the house.The parties were wildly popular, and held in local bars and restaurants,churches, schools and even in people's homes. In 2014, they located studio space in Downtown Mahomet, and eventually added a gift boutique. Within a year a new, larger location was needed and created in WesPark Center in downtown Mahomet. Due to the challenges of Covid-19 in 2020, parties were put on hold for 8 months. During that time, a new classroom space was created just next door, but connected to Yellow & Co.
Elizabeth is the creative director and artist, while Mike runs the schedule and website.
Our staff includes Sherry Hodges, Megan Peters, and Charlotte-Grace VanHoutan.
"I had such a good time. This was my first experience at a paint party. The instructor was very patient and helpful with everyone in our group. Absolutely recommend having a paint party with Paint Like Me in Mahomet." Melissa S.
"I've attended several PLMP events [in their studio and restaurants] The instructor is an amazing artist and fantastic at making canvases easy for a novice to follow. She's always very friendly and enjoys helping others create their own master pieces.
I would and do highly recommend PLMP for small groups, fundraisers and individuals." D'Anne O.
"I love this place! I literally rival Bob Ross now!!!! What a cool, unique place that has kits for kids and adults. Great fun for everyone! Let your inner Bob Ross out!" Evan E.
"Seriously, the best paint party place around. Tons of one on one attention and never hestitated to give out more products if needed. Was really relaxing, no pressure or rush. I attended a private party, and we felt like we were just hanging out with our fun artsty friend. Good balance between insturuction and letting us socialize and relax. Highly recommend. Very nice and helpful instructors. Also liked how everyone's canvases turned out a little different. I will be back."
Our canvases are created in a mixed media style, with layers of paint and texture and require no artistic ability. You will be led, step by step through the process that never requires freehand sketching, complex color mixing, or perspective.
