Benefits of a Private Party
You select your own masterpiece to paint from our collection of thousands of paintings-pretty much anything you can imagine! A link will be emailed to you so that you can choose your painting! You will be able to choose from 2 hour ($39/person) or 3 hour ($47/person) paintings. We also offer different surface options such as wood boards and pallets. Feel free to ask if you'd like pricing per person for a different surface! Kids parties are also available for lower rates. See details below!
You can schedule your party any day of the week, space permitting. We have morning, afternoon and evening slots available.
You get your own artist-instructor.
Prices are the same per person as our regular public classes.
No set up, no clean up - just show up!
You get the room 30 minutes before and after your party to celebrate. Additional time may be available for a fee. Feel free to ask if you'd like extra time before or after your painting.
Hosts of parties with 25 people or more receive a gift certificate for a FREE future class!
- We provide all of the art supplies, as well as cups and corkscrews.
- Guests may bring their snacks and drinks of choice-BYOB for 21+ (wine and beer only, no hard liquor)
How do I reserve and pay for my party? Call or text us at 828-676-2607 or email us your Party Request at firstname.lastname@example.org, or complete a Party Request here: https://www.paintingwithatwist.com/studio/asheville/requestparty/. We are typically open Wednesday-Saturday, but often check email from home, so that's a great way to reach us on off days.
Our studio can accommodate a maximum of 50 guests. The minimum number of painters required for private parties is currently 10 (lower than usual due to Covid). If you don't have 10 people, or aren't sure, see options for leaving your party open to the public below.
Costs & Minimums
Private painting parties pay the same prices as our public classes: $30 per person for a 1.5 hour painting class (kids parties, recommended for ages 7-12 years old), $39 per person for a 2-hour painting class, and $47 per person for a 3-hour painting class. The host may opt to pay for multiple attendees or attendees may pay for themselves.
To book a private party, we require a non-refundable deposit, of 2 seats paid for up front and a minimum number of painters. These requirements vary depending on on the time of year, etc. Currently, or minimum for a totally private party is 10, due to Covid. This is subject to change. Feel free to reach out with questions.
The minimum number of painters will be used to calculate your total cost due 48 hours before your party. For example: 10 painters in a $39, 2-hour class=$390 minimum due. All deposits are non-refundable. Your deposit amount will be credited to your minimum due. If the minimum requirement is not met for the party through attendance, the host/hostess credit card will be charged the balance to meet the minimum. Please note, NO REFUNDS WILL BE AUTHORIZED; we must schedule our staff accordingly.
If you do not have the minimum number of people needed to host a totally private party, you are welcome to have a party that is open to the public as long as we have 3 weeks notice to advertise the class. If our calendar of events allows, you may choose a painting for your event and we'll make sure your group is sitting together. We still ask that you pay for 2 seats upfront in order to hold the date and time while you choose a painting. In this case, you are not responsible for a minimum number of painters. However, we do need at total of at least 6 people to host a class. You are still welcome to bring whatever food and drinks you like! The only difference is, other folks might be there to help you celebrate!
If you'd like to have a private party but don't have the minimum number of people, we can also convert some of your reservations to Take Home Kits! Feel free to ask us about setting up this option for you. They are a great at home activity and also make excellent gifts so they're a nice way to get your money's worth even if you fall one or two people short of your 10 person minimum.
If you are not sure if your group can meet the minimum number of people, we encourage you to bring your party group to one of our public painting classes, or to contact us about choosing a painting while leaving it open to the public. TAKE HOME kits also have great rates on Party Packs for your group!
What if the day and time works for your group but you'd prefer to paint something different that what is being offered on that particular day and time?? Calls us! (828) 676-2607 to check and see if anyone has signed up yet; if not, we may be able to book your group and work together on the painting selection for the day and time that works for you!
Want a party they'll never forget?! Bring them to our studio! You only need 10 kids and the place is all yours. The kids will create a party favor unlike any they have ever had before! Painting parties for kids can only be booked for Friday afternoons after school, Saturdays starting at noon or sooner, or on Sundays at any time. Other times may be available on request. For kids 7-12 years of age, paintings are limited to "easier" and more youthful. 1.5 hour paintings at $30 per painter. If you prefer to choose a painting from our 2 hour gallery, our regular class prices will apply. Our doors will open 30 miniutes prior to your class time so that you may set up and socialize. Please have your guests arrive at least 10 minutes early so the instructor may begin at your scheduled class time. Our instructors will guide the kids through the selected painting for about an hour to an hour and a half, the other 30 minutes can be devoted to cake, presents, snacks and other goodies! The mess stays with us and the kids leave with an awesome new wall decoration!
Corporate Team Building Events:
Come and enjoy something totally different from anythiung you have done before! You have more quality time with your co-workers in this studio than you would having lunch or going bowling! Select a piece of art work that you will have long after any other event. Think outside the box and give us a try; you will be amazed how much fun it is for both men and women!
We do not offer refunds back to cards used to purchase seats, but we are happy to help you reschedule, offer store credit for future events or offer Take Home Kits as an alternative to visiting us on your selected date/time.
The Private Party is booked! Now what?
Once the private party has been booked and the painting is selected, the host/hostess will receive a link to distribute to their guests. Guests can then go online and individually pay and register for the private party, or the host/hostess may instead pay with one payment for the party. In either case, the minimum number of seats must be paid for no later than 48 hours before the party so we know how many to set up for and can plan our staffing/supplies accordingly.
Please call 828-676-2607 or email email@example.com for availability. We are happy to walk you through the process to make your party planning a breeze! Please note, email is the best way to reach us during our off hours.
