Painting with a Twist FAQ
What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! In our classes we use acrylic paints on various surfaces. We teach the class step by step how to complete the specific painting for that class. Most of our guests have no painting experience, and all of them have great success!
How does this work?
We have an Event Calendar that displays the specific paintings we will be teaching and at what date and time and cost. If you see a painting you like and it's scheduled on a day you can attend you can go ahead and make a reservation online or call the studio during office hours to reserve by phone. The artist instructor will guide the whole class on how to complete the specific painting. Bring your drinks and snacks to enjoy during class if you would like.
How much does it cost?
Classes range from $29 to $58per painter depending on the duration of the class and type of surface chosen.
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 and some light snacks to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best!
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! The only thing you may want to bring are some refreshments.
Can I just paint whatever I want?
We will provide step by step instructions for the scheduled painting. If you want to do your own thing, go for it, but there will not be step by step guidance on how to complete it.
When are you open?
We do answer emails and texts around the clock and actively return voicemails. We are open anytime there is a class scheduled, but it does not guarantee the phone will be answered. For immediate assistance, it is best to email the studio at firstname.lastname@example.org or text us at 210-602-5335.
How do I book a private party?
Call us or email email@example.com to check availability for the date you want. We will need a credit card number on file to reserve a party date and time for you. Please see Party Info page for further details.
How do I sign up a group to attend an open to the public class?
Option 1: Select the number of seats you want to reserve for the specific class online and pay for each seat upfront.
Option 2: Ask everyone in your group to reserve individually online, and to specify group name or point person in the "Special Requests" box.
Do I have to make a reservation? Can I just walk in?
If you want to guarantee a seat for yourself, you have to make a reservation. Many classes will sell out. Also, if there are not any reservations for a class, we may cancel the class or switch the painting. We set up a painting station for each person. Please make a reservation so we can set up for you and have you seated appropriately with your group if you are joining one.
Can my child come with me to paint?
We have specific classes on our calendar for young artists!
- Art for All Ages classes are intended for any age 5 and up, and children should always have a guardian except for our Kids Camps.
- Evening classes are for adults 18 and older, but guests 15 and up can attend with a parent for evening classes. If an evening class is noted as All Ages or Family, then our younger artists are welcome to join us for that class!
Can my friends come and watch us without painting?
Everyone needs a paid seat to stay on premises during all classes.
When do you post a new monthly schedule?
The calendar is posted by the first of every month and sometimes earlier -- sign up for our newsletter and be the first to see it.
Will my painting be dry at the end of the night?
Yes, if there are a few damp places we have hair dryers which will dry them quickly.
What do I wear?
Wear whatever is comfortable and you don't mind if a little paint gets on it. We do supply aprons, but if you by chance get paint on your clothes and it dries, it will not come out. If you catch it while it's still wet you can usually get it out with some soap and water.
What if I’m late? Can I still attend?
We begin classes promptly at their starting times. Painting With A Twist is more than just painting, it’s a step-by-step experience! Arriving late to your session will not allow you the best possible experience.
