  • The minimum number of attendees is 20 on Friday nights and any time Saturday. All other times, the minimum is 10. As the host of the private party, it is your responsibility to make sure that you have the minimum number of guests attending. If the number of guests falls below the minimum, a portion of the deposit will be kept for the number of guests to reach the minimum.
  • Minimum number of guests must be paid 7 days before party.*
  • We will begin painting at the scheduled time, so ask your guests to arrive or log in and set up 10 minutes before party start time. 
  • Private parties are entitled to a 2-hour block of time for a 2-hour painting, with a 15-minute grace period after the painting end time.
  • A party exceeding the end time is subject to a service charge of $75.00 and an additional $75.00 for each additional hour over party end time.  Party extensions are based on availability of space and management discretion. 
  • Deposits are refunded at the end of the party, once ALL terms have been met.

*Ship-to-Home option requires no less than two weeks before party to finalize all requirements. 

Requirements of a Private Party

  • Minimum number of guests must be paid one week before party. For Ship-to-Home events, all seats must be paid for 2 weeks before the party and no additional seats can be added afterwards.

Cancellation Policy

The host of the party can secure a private event with a $150 refundable deposit. There is a 7 day* cancellation policy. If less than a 7 day notice of cancellation is given, the $150 deposit will not be refunded. 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. Once kits are picked up, refunds are no longer available.

*14 day cancellation notice required for Ship-to-Home events. There are no refunds for any kits once the order has been placed with our supplier.

How do I reserve and pay for my party?

Once the private party has been booked and the deposit made, we will send you a link to our library so that you can select a painting. Once 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.
