Painting it Forward Fundraising Event
This is Dumplin, she is our beautiful Columbus Zoo and Aquarium resident Orangutan! You have the opportunity to virtually paint her in support of our favorite Zoo! A portion of the proceeds from this virtual fundraiser will support the Columbus Zoo. Register now and follow the Columbus Zoo And Aquarium on FB and watch for exciting updates.
Dumplin is quiet and observant but her eyes are constantly sparkling with life. She is constantly observing what’s happening around her and especially loves to people-watch. She’s a hard and creative worker, frequently weaving blankets and sheets into the mesh of her holding rooms. She is a genuine joy to be around and becomes a fast favorite of anyone who gets to meet her.
One of the biggest threats facing orangutans is the production of palm oil. Conflict palm oil farming is one of the biggest threats to orangutans and their habitats. By purchasing products that contain sustainable palm oil instead of products that use unregulated palm oil, people can help support and promote the sustainable palm oil industry and therefore protect orangutans. There is a Sustainable Palm Oil Shopping app that is free to download on your smart phone that makes doing this easy!
So Gather your friends, family members or group of coworkers for a live virtual painting event. This FUNdraiser is perfect for all abilities!! Brooke, the Pinot’s Palette artist will guide you step-by-step through creating the painting.

Frequently Asked Questions
Check out our FAQs to learn more about what to expect from your Pinot's Palette experience or feel free to call the studio to speak to a member of our staff.
What is the Covid cancellation policy?
Unless our doors are physically closed by mandate, we will still have class unless there are two or fewer guests. Keep in mind that because of Covid our classes are small and there is plenty of space in our large studio for social distancing etc. Our place is very clean for your safety. Regardless, if you feel that you must decline attending let us know and we can hold your reservation for a future class or switch you to a virtual or pre recorded option which is really quite fun and you will have many paintings to choose from
What is a "pre recorded" class?
Our pre recorded class once was a professionally executed live class that now is recorded for you and your friends or family. It can be paused if needed and the kit will be complete and specific to that class. It will also include a link. We will often just sell the link if that is what you need. The link is good for one week or longer depending. This is great for small groups that want to watch in their own home and a great Holiday gift too!
What is a "virtual" class?
Our virtual classes are wonderful for guests that cannot meet together. Each guest or group can be in a different location as these classes are led by our talented Artist via zoom and are interactive. Our kits are part of the class and specific to that painting and can be delivered, picked up or sent by mail. A great way to re connect for the holidays!
How are you handling social distancing in the studio during Covid?
We are able to utilize 2700+ sq foot of studio space. We have a closed off private party room where guests can be in smaller groups then the main room. We have social distancing between unrelated guests and markings on the floor showing where six foot designations are.
What are you doing to ensure that the studio is safe to visit during COVID?
We are following all of the directives by the Ohio Health Department which includes disinfecting and sanitizing, wearing masks for staff and for guests when up and about (not eating or drinking), high temp washing of aprons after each use, complete cleansing of brushes, social distancing, high temp commercial washing of glassware and bringing drinks to guests seated in their seats.
