Painting with a Twist FAQ

What is Painting with a Twist?

Painting With A Twist is the “art” in pARTy studio for anyone interested in painting and/or partying! It's a one-of-a-kind experience where you and your friends have a blast at a 2- 3 hour event listening to music, sipping wine, and learning how to paint with step-by-step instructions from a talented artist. They'll walk you through your painting step by step, layer by layer while you create your masterpiece and a memorable experience.

No experience is needed - our classes are fun art, not fine art! Our paintings are created with the amateur in mind and most of our guests have no painting experience. Expect to have a ton of fun and surprise yourself at just how well your painting turns out. 

Fully Stocked bar- the only one in the state!

The St. Louis, MO - Brentwood Boulevard location offers a fully stocked bar and a bartender on staff to make your favorite beverages. We have a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. No outside Alcohol or beverages of any kind are permitted into our studio.


Light snacks & finger foods are allowed. Anything easy to eat while you paint! You will be required to provide your guests with disposable flatware, plates and napkins and dispose of them at the end of your event.


We are located on The Boulevard-St. Louis, across from the Galleria Shopping Mall on Brentwood BLVD. Our direct neighbors are Maggiano’s Little Italy, Series Six, Loft, and Las Chupacabras Mexican Restaurant.

We recommend using Google Maps. Please call us if you are having difficulty finding us at (314) 727-7928.


There is free parking in a garage attached to our building, or in the south outer lot.

Suggested Attire

We use acrylic paint that will dry quickly. The good news- you can take your painting home the same day. The bad news- acrylic paint can and usually does stain or damage clothing. Please dress accordingly.

We do have aprons that cover most of your front side. Accidents do happen though and we don’t want you to damage your clothes, purse, shoes, etc. We are not responsible for any damages.


We use seating charts for all PUBLIC events. If you will be joining other friends for the event and forgot to identify who you would like to sit with, please let us know right away. Many of our parties SELL OUT and it is next to impossible to change seating without this crucial information. If you have any special requests or needs please let us know, we will do all we can to accommodate. We are unable to guarantee location requests such as "sit in front near instructor".

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, canvas, brushes, paints and step by step art instruction throughout the class! When class is done, your artwork is ready to hang!

Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?

We offer a fully stocked bar for your convenience at the Brentwood Blvd location.

How long do we actually have to paint?

We offer 2-hour paintings and 3-hour paintings. Typically we paint the entire time with the exception of drying time or playing a quick game (if time allows). Be sure to join us during Happy Half Hour, which is 30-minutes prior to the class start time. Cocktails and domestic beers are half-priced during this time! We do need to adhere to our schedules here On The Blvd and our artists do all they can to keep you on track, but if you are unable to finish your painting, please note that we have SOS classes (see above).
