Painting with a Twist FAQ

You have Questions? We have Answers! 

 
What is Painting with a Twist?
  • Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! We use acrylic paints and teach the class, step-by-step, through a specific painting. Most of our guests have no painting experience but all of them have fun and great success!
How does Painting with a Twist work?
  • We have an online Event Calendar that posts both Public and Private Events. Calendars are published before the month in order to give you plenty of time to plan ahead.
  • Classes marked “Private” are events where groups have reserved our studio in advance and are closed to the public. 
  • All classes not marked "Private" are Open to Public
  • You can come to a public class alone, with one friend, or with as many friends as you can round up. Please choose one person from your group and have everyone mention that person in the “Seating & Special Requests” section when they register and we will do our best to seat your group all together.
  • SUMMARY: View the calendar of classes, find a painting you like, register online, and arrive for class up to 30 but no less than 15 minutes prior to class time and prepare for a relaxing and fun art session! 
Can my friends (or children) come to watch without painting?
  • Everyone needs a paid reservation to stay on premises during our classes. 
Do I need to reserve the private studio if I have a big group?
  • If you have 12 or more guests you can reserve our Van Gogh Party Room for a private party but groups of any size are welcome in our public classes if there are seats still available. 
Are we allowed to bring in food and beverages?
  • FOOD YES! Feel free to bring in your favorite snacks to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best!
  • DRINKS NO! We are not a BYOB studio but have for purchase wine, beer & non-alcoholic drinks. 
  • Please remember to bring plates, utensils, and serving ware with you.
Where can I park?
  • There is plenty of parking in front of our studio and it is well lit after dark.
Do I need to bring anything with me to paint?
  • Your reservation fee includes everything you need to create a beautiful and unique painting! When you arrive you are supplied with an apron, easel, canvas, brushes, paints, napkins and step-by-step art instruction. When class is done, your artwork is ready to take home and hang! The only thing you may want to bring are snacks. 
Can children paint?
  • We love our young artists and have specific classes designated just for them. Please see each class description for age requirements. Only those meeting the age requirement will be allowed to participate in that class! 
Private Events/Corporate Team Events:
  • Please email the studio at studio344@paintingwithatwist.com to start the process of booking a private event. Details about the requirements and process are also listed on our Party Page on our website! We can accommodate daytime events as well as off-site events and look forward to discussing ways we can bring a unique experience your team will remember! 
Will you come to my home?
  • Unfortunately, we do not go into private residences. Paint tends to go everywhere and we don't want to ruin anyone's decor with the permanent paint. If you change your mind and want to paint in the studio, we have the perfect place for your private party! Our studio is designed to give you the best painting experience.
Do you have Gift Certificates?
  • We have universal Gift Cards that can be purchased in person at any Painting with a Twist studio and we also have gift Certificates that can be purchased online. They are emailed in PDF format directly to you and are valid for any new reservations. Gift certificates may not be used for our “Painting with a Purpose” or any other fundraising events. Our Gift Certificates do not expire.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
Please note our cancellation policy applies to all individuals in public or private events.
  • A refund will be given for individuals canceling with more than 48 hours notice.
  • Guests canceling with a 24-48 hours notice will be issued a store credit.
  • Guests canceling with less than 24 hours notice and "no shows" WILL NOT receive a store credit or a refund.
  • NOTE: Guests arriving more than 15 minutes late may not be permitted to paint and are considered a "no show". They are not entitled to a refund. 
What if there is bad weather?
  • Classes may be cancelled if a weather emergency is declared or we determine the roads to be too unsafe to travel on. In the rare case of a class cancelling due to poor weather, a studio credit will be issued to all registered guests. Please see our website for updates in a case of questionable weather.
