HOW DID YOU GET THE BACKGROUND AND SKILLS NECESSARY TO RUN THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS? Picasso & Wine is a partnership of two sisters, Alissa & Alanna. Alissa took art classes throughout her life and attended the Art Institute in Denver CO. Alanna has over 23 years bar experience. We are able to individually focus on our area of the business and it comes together perfectly!

This is a fun, social and colorful business to be involved in! We have the pleasure of meeting new people everyday, and we see the smiles and fun our customers have on a daily basis. It means a lot to us that an experience at our studio affects our customers in such a fun, creative and positive way!

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR BUSINESS IN THE NEXT YEAR?

We see us continuing to grow and perfect our craft. We hope to continue to be a positive influence in our community and customers lives. Our newest location in Sparks Victorian Square will open later this year, and it will be a bit different than the current studios. Different art projects, live music and a beautiful bar serving wine, handcrafted cocktails and draft beer. Next 5 or 10 years? Who knows... maybe we will eventually franchise!

ANY ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO MAKE THEIR BUSINESS THE BEST? To be “The Best” you have to be open to change and growth. You also have to be passionate about your business and what you do every day! Never settle and always push forward as hard as you can!
