Pinot's Palette was founded in 2009 by business partners Craig Ceccanti, Charles Willis, and Beth Willis. Ceccanti says he got the idea for starting the business after he attended a painting class in Louisiana with his family.
The first Pinot's Palette studio opened in Houston's Montrose neighborhood in 2009. The studio was originally named "Pinot and Picasso." The name was changed to "Pinot's Palette" in 2010.
After opening two additional locations in the Houston area, the company began franchising. The first franchised Pinot's Palette studio opened in Katy, Texas in 2010. Since then, the company has expanded nationwide.
In June 2016, Pinot's Palette launched a rebranding effort, which introduced a new logo, and updated studio décor.
