Is there an age limit?
- Yes, no one under the age of 21 is permitted in the studio.
Do you ever have children's events in the studio? Can kids attend with an adult?
- Due to the sale of beer and wine in the studio, no persons under the age of 21 are permitted in the studio at any time. There are no exceptions to this.
If the alcohol is locked up, can you have people under 21 in the studio? What about for a private party?
- No, no one under the age of 21 is permitted in the studio. There are no exceptions to this.
I can't even draw a straight line! How do I know which class is easy or hard?
- Have no fear... we are Fun Art, not fine art! Every class is geared towards beginning painters and our team of awesome artists will help you recreate a beautiful painting with step-by-step instructions in a happy, fun place.
- No experience or skills are required.
What should I expect?
- A fun time! Every class has a different personality and we can never predict how loud or quiet the experience will be. Whether a crowded weekend class with lots of parties or a smaller weekday paint session, you are sure to have a great time. This is where adults come to uncork the fun!
What should I bring?
- Bring your ID to prove you're over 21 years of age. Expect to get carded even if you're well over 21 years of age! If we cannot verify your age, you will be turned away.
- If you're worried about getting paint on your fancy clothes or designer purse, please leave them at home so you don't have to worry about it. It's best to be prepared for the occasional "happy little accident" of a paint or wine spill.
Is a glass of wine or beer included with the registration?
- No. We do not include beverages in the price of a seat, but they are available for purchase at our bar.
Can I bring my own wine?
- We are a licensed #ArtBar featuring popular wine and beer selections offered. No outside beverages of any kind are permitted in the studio, including water. Alcoholic beverages and soft drinks are available for purchase at the bar. We have a complimentary water cooler for all of our guests.
Do you sell food or snacks?
- We have potato chips, candy, and other snacks for sale. You are welcome to bring any food or snacks, but please keep it on the smaller side. Also, please bring your own plates, utensils and condiments as we do not carry any food-service items. We cannot guarantee a food table during our weekend events.
- We will begin offering a limited menu from El Rey Cantina in May 2021.
What should I wear?
- There is a high possibility for paint splatters and wine spills, so dress for comfort and a little mess.
Can I come by myself or do I have to be in a group or party?
- Of course you can come by yourself! Let us know if you're just wanting some "me" time, or if you want to meet new people and mingle!
- This is also a fun and safe place to meet a new date, or get together with old friends.
