Ready, Paint, Fire

IMG_2322Ready Paint Fire is a one of a kind activity in Breckenridge. With really nothing else like it, Ready Paint Fire offers a bulk of arts and crafts such as Pottery, Canvas, Mosaics and Glass Fusing for all ages and skill levels. Open year round, check out Ready Paint Fire for a change of pace during the winter or summer!

Firsthand experience: A couple of girlfriends and I signed up for a Canvas Painting Party to try something different and see what this establishment was all about. Beth, the owner, greeted us with a very friendly welcoming and was available throughout the duration of the event to offer a helping hand. Nancy was our teacher and the picture of the evening was sailboats on Lake Dillon in the evening. She was very informative and worked very well with each individual so we were able to follow her step by step to creating our very own masterpieces! You are equipped with everything you need including the canvas, brushes, smock, paint and palette.

These classes run from 7-10 and typically don’t start until around 7:15-7:30. It does take the full duration of time to finish your painting so plan on eating dinner beforehand! They do have drinks available for purchase including wine, beer, champagne, soda and juice so grab your girlfriends and sign up for a private party or bring the family for a fun night out.

You can reserve online and pay in advance or just call during operating hours and make a reservation over the phone. Some of the popular paintings sell out very fast so if you see a picture on their Events Calendar you like it is recommended to sign up in advance.

While their canvas parties seem to be a big hit you could most certainly go a different route and choose what you fancy. Their pottery includes a wide selection for you to choose from: mugs, bowls, plates, platters, pet bowls, cookie jars, banks, figurines, picture frames, beer steins, martini and wine glasses, dishes and kitchenware. Here around the holidays? Fun seasonal items become available!

Mosaics, stained glass and fusing are also always available!

Ready Paint Fire is open daily from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. (Evening events 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.)
