About The Paint Factory

The Paint Factory first opened in Hutchinson almost four years ago and didn’t just bring another unique business to our town, but a unique experience as well. It doesn’t matter if you’re a talented artist, or if you haven’t picked up a paintbrush since elementary school – The owner, Tara Tepley, tells us, “It brings me so much joy to see people enter the studio afraid of how their paintings will turn out and leave with a created masterpiece.” Even if you still have some doubts that you’ll be walking away with a masterpiece, the most important thing is you know you’ll always enjoy yourself when you’re at The Paint Factory. It’s a chance to get away for a couple of hours and unleash creativity in ways many of us don’t get to anymore.

Beyond just offering something unique to Hutchinson, The Paint Factory also offers a variety. You can view their online calendar to see what canvas paintings are on the docket, and they now offer several pallet painting classes as well. Their team has also started painting on plywood and burlap – there is always something different to try!

What a lot of people might not know is how much The Paint Factory likes to give back. Tara and her mother are both Breast Cancer survivors so at the end of each paint class they sell the instructor’s demo painting and 100% of the funds go to a local family who is going through cancer treatment. They also host monthly fundraisers for local non-profits to help them spread the word about their organizations.
