Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have class-time flexibility?

Yes.

The classes are generally on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday and occasional weekdays by appt.

The times posted on the registration form are very flexible, but dependent upon adequate enrollment.

 

How early should I arrive?

It is best to arrive 15-30 minutes prior to the event start time. Arriving early will also ensure you get a good seat as we offer seats first come first serve.  Also, you will be able to get your snack and beverage ahead of time. 

Do I need to bring anything to the event?

Just an open mind, seeking creativity, and a friend or two! We supply all of the materials necessary for painting.  

How much does it cost?

Check our pricing schedule here.

Is wine included?  YES and NO (please read carefully)

For public venue events:  Menu purchases are expected for food and beverage from the restaurant or pub - this is not included in our ticket price.  

For your home event: You provide refreshments for your guests. Suggest that they bring a bottle to share.  

What kind of paint do you use?

We use non-toxic acrylic paint. Acrylic paint is water-based, which means it will wash off with warm water and soap. We will provide aprons for the event, but we strongly recommend that you wear clothing that you do not mind getting paint on. 

Do I need to paint the painting being taught?

We encourage creative expression in all forms!   Feel free to modify the colors and style of the painting to match your personality or home décor. 

Do I need to tip the artist or assistant?

Tips are much appreciated but certainly not expected. If you feel the artist or assistant has done a great job then feel free to express your gratitude!

 

May I bring a non-painting guest to the event?

Seating is reserved for the registered attendees.  If additional seats are available, non-painting attendees, may secure a seat for $20.00.  In addition, we do welcome walk-in painters to pay at the door if there is space available. However, this is not guaranteed, so we strongly recommend that your friends register before hand.

Can I order food or beverages while at the event?

Absolutely!  Events held at public venues, such as bars or pubs - you should arrive early to order your refreshments before we get started. Again, food and beverage are available for purchase at public venues; it is not included in our ticket price.

Teens and pre-teens are okay. But, keep in mind that certain adult entertainment venues may not suitable for teens. No babies or toddlers please.
