So-So Artsy in Northfield Center offers avenue for artistic outlet

Melinda Turner, owner of So So Artsy Paint and Sip Studio, holds one of her pieces in the Northfield studio.

Melinda Turner had just left her job as a school counselor with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, a job she had for four years.

That night, her friends took her to a paint-and-sip studio, where people gather to create art while enjoying a glass of wine.

“I was really stressed out,” she said of leaving her job. 

Turner, who lives in Walton Hills with her husband, said she had never been to a paint-and-sip event but wound up spending the evening studying how it was run, with the idea forming on how to set up her own studio. She spent the next two years working on her business plan. 

That plan came to fruition in 2017, when Turner opened So-So Artsy Paint & Sip Studios in Northfield. She moved to another location at 115 East Aurora Road in Northfield Center Township in November 2020 and has branched out to include taking her classes on the road.
