Costs & Minimums
Private painting parties pay the same prices as our public classes: $27 per person for a 1.5 hour painting class, $37 per person for a 2-hour painting class, and $45 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 the day and time of your party:
- Weekdays starting at 3:30pm or earlier and all day Sunday: Minimum of 10 painters, 2 seats paid for upfront.
- Monday-Thursday starting at 6:00pm or later: Minimum of 15 painters, 2 seats paid for upfront
- Friday starting at 6:00pm or later and all day Saturday: Minimum of 25 painters, 2 seats paid for upfront
*See Kid's Birthday Parties below for Saturday morning exceptions!
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 $37, 2-hour class=$370 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.
If your painting choice sells out a public class, the host will receive a gift certificate for a FREE SEAT to use for a future class!
**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.

Want a party they will never forget?! Bring them on in to our studio. You only need 10 kids and the party 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. For kids 7-12 years of age, paintings are limited to "easier" 1.5 hour paintings at $27 per painter. If you prefer to choose a painting from our entire 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!

The party spokesperson/host will reserve the desired day & time with a nonrefundable deposit of 2 seats paid for upfront on a credit card and private party agreement. Guests must pay in advance and may make arrangements to pay online or by phone. There is a 14 day cancellation notice. If less than a 14 day notice of cancellation is given, a $150 penalty will be charged to the hostess. Cancellations within 7 days of party will incur a $350 penalty. Hostess is responsible for the minimum payment due for the party within 48 hours of start of party regardless of number of reservations or attendance.
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 passcode to distribute to guests. Hosts can also email or print custom invitations. 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. If your party is open to the public and you're choosing the, we will get your ideas about what you'd like to paint and email you lots of options to choose from!
