Painting Studio May Open in Town (Video)

A painting and party studio designed for all ages could move into the now-vacant San Marino Stationers space in San Marino Courtyard. Would you go if it opened?

In the latest change to San Marino Courtyard, which has seen , another business owner tells Patch that she is looking to fill the space with a paint and party studio called Paint the Town San Marino.

Owner Rochelle Joachim Janecek said she is on the next city council agenda to get her special permit to work in the city and if all goes well she hopes to open for business in July.

“The concept of Paint The Town is about freedom,” Janecek told Patch online. “Even though it is a place people can come and paint canvas the idea is Fun Art not Fine Art. I'm not really teaching techniques, I am more just helping people create a piece of artwork that reflects who they are in a really fun and non-intimidating setting.”

Paint the Town San Marino will be geared from kids age five all the way to adults and would cater to walk-ins or parties for kids, a girls night out or other events where people come in and paint using materials provided by Paint the Town.

“I am really excited to bring this into the SoCal area as there is not too many like it out there yet,” noted Janecek, who was inspired by a Paint The Town business in Colorado who she is working with in regards to licensing for the name and logo. “My store will be family-friendly unlike some others that are more bar-focused painting events.”

Janecek grew up in Pasadena and graduated from Maranatha High School before moving to Colorado, where she'll be moving back from if Paint the Town San Marino gets city council approval to go forward.

The business already has a facebook page you can see here and will get a website up and running if they're given the green light.
