ABOUT PAINT SIP FUN
In the fall of 2013, professional artist, licensed art educator, owner and founder Erin Leigh Boughamer dreamed of sharing her love of art with others. In November of 2013 her dream came true when she started her traveling art studio Paint Sip Fun. Her vision was to educate, empower and inspire adults to get back in touch with their creative sides.
Eight years and tens of thousands of budding artists (of ALL ages) later, she opened the doors to her first studio in Somers, CT!
One-of-a-kind creative events are our specialty! Public events, private parties, team building events, bridal & baby showers, birthday parties, fundraisers and any other reason you can think of to paint, we are happy to paint and create with you! We offer all kinds of art and crafting classes. We work with canvas, glass, wine bottles, wood, tile, slate, ceramics and pretty much anything we can get our hands on ;-). Looking to make something not seen on our site, please reach out! We are always open to suggestions and ideas, so please don't hesitate to contact us!
As a small women-owned and operated business, we love to support other small local businesses. If you have an idea in mind on how we can work together, please contact us!!!
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Professional Artist and Licensed MA Art Educator Erin Leigh Boughamer
I created Paint Sip Fun as a way to encapsulate my business skills, creative interests, public speaking and teaching experience in a way to help empower and educate, as I hope to transform peoples lives one artist at a time. As a detail-oriented professional artist for over 25 years, I have gained valuable experience through a variety of creative endeavors and entrepreneurial experience.
My teaching style is unique. I take what I learned from art school, and break it down into bite sized easy to understand bits to share it with my painters. This is what keeps my customers coming back for more ... I teach them my techniques! I understand HOW to create, AND also how to teach it to others. This also allows me to create one of a kind paintings from photographs. This skill allows me to make each and every event, private or public, a unique and individually tailored class.
I hope to be able to meet you and paint with you too! Any questions or suggestions please reach out to me! Happy creating!
- Erin Leigh

Where the Creativity Begins
Artist & Crafter
An amazing maker, Meg is one of our featured artists who teaches classes in CT and MA. She is an avid crafter with experience using more materials than you can find in an art store! If it has anything to do with creativity, Meg is making it! From painting and ceramics to tie-dying and sewing, knitting, paper crafts, jewelry making, felting, alcohol inks and everything in-between, Meg LOVES all things crafty and creative! When she is not crafting (and even when she is) she can be found with her four legged fur baby Dinah Soar Pancake. (Yes we know, it is an eccentric name, but it fits ;-) and we love her too! ).
SHERYL RAIN CARTER

Creative and fiery information junky, Shari LOVES to play with marketing tools just to watch the numbers and data! A busy mom of 4 humans, 2 canines, and grandmother of 2, she always finds time to create campaigns, marketing images and promos and stays on top of the analytics to help us flourish!
