Benefits of a Private Party
Once you secure a date, you can choose the painting for your party from our collection of thousands of different artwork options. A link to the art library will be emailed to you so that you can choose your painting! You will be able to choose from 2 hour or 3 hour paintings. You may also select from our unique surface choices like wooden plank boards, shiplap, screen art and custom size canvases as well. (See additional info for Kid's Birthday Parties below)
We schedule parties 7 days a week, space permitting. We have morning, afternoon and evenings available. You get your own private party room and your own artist! Once you choose a painting, you will be able to send invitations to your guests! Prices are the same per person as our regular open classes. No set up, no clean up - just show up! The room is yours 20 minutes before and after your party at no additional charge. Hosts of parties of 20 people or more receive a $35 gift certificate for a future class! We will provide all of the art supplies, as well as cups, napkins, paper plates, and wine openers. To limit risk of accidental breakage- no glassware for drinking in studio please! Guests may bring decorations, snacks and drinks of their choice. We have two studios available; one will accommodate up to 48 guests and the other will accommodate up to 30 guests.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
Our studio is all BYOB - we only serve paint water! Feel free to bring in your favorite beverage (adult beverages limited to beer and wine or a premix margarita type beverage) and some light snacks to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best!
**BYOB Policy: We welcome bringing your own wine, beer, snacks and food to enjoy during your painting class! No one under the age of 21 will be allowed to consume alcohol. It is against NY State law to leave with an opened, unfinished bottle of wine or beer. Once an alcoholic beverage has been opened, it may not be removed from the studio.
