Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to pre-register for a class or can I just walk in? 

For us to guarantee you a seat, we do ask that you pre-register for any event you wish to attend. This allows us to prepare for your arrival. 

My friends are painting, etc., but I just want to watch. Can I do this? 

For the courtesy of all guests, every person in attendance must pay for a seat, unless you are accompanying your child for a Children’s Painting Class.

How much does a painting class cost? Children's painting classes range from $28 to $30. All other classes cost $35 for a 2 hour event, $40 for a 2  1/2  hour event, and $45 for a 3 hour event. Materials, supplies, and a complimentary glass of wine/beer/soda are included for most events. 

When do I need to arrive for my class? 

We do start our classes promptly so we suggest you arrive 10 min prior to class to settle in and mingle before the fun starts. 

I’m not artistic. Will I be able to do this? 

Absolutely. Your instructor will help you step by step. 

What do I need to bring? 

Usually nothing is required. If any materials are required that will be noted at the time of registration.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase. 

What should I wear?

Dress casually or dress up. It is up to you and we want you to be comfortable. Aprons will be provided for painting classes.

Can we share a canvas or other project with another person? 

No. However, if each person has paid separately for the class they may share, but would not receive a discount or refund on the materials already purchased for this class.   On occasion couple's classes may be advertised where the canvas is shared.

May I bring my children with me while I attend the class? 

Unfortunately, no. For the courtesy of the other guests this is not permitted.
