Why book a Painting Party?

Something Creative and Fun - a Painting pARTy!

Painting With A Twist (PWAT) is a fun party option for any group! In a private event with PWAT, a professional artist will instruct your guests step by step through the painting of your choice! This is truly a fun and unique way to socialize!

How does a Private Event at Cincinnati West PWAT work?

The process if very simple:

  • A party host may reserve the private studio for a specific date and time by completing a private event agreement. This secures the event room for their group.
  • Host then gets to select the painting the group will paint from our art gallery of over 4,000 paintings!
  • The event can be set up for guests to pay directly online, or host can arrange to pay for entire event. 
  • The day of the event, the guests all arrive up to 30 minutes before the class time to enjoy the 'Happy Half Hour' before painting begins.
  • Classes are 2 hours long with an additional 30 minute social time prior to the painting instruction.
  • Once the class begins, the artist will lead the participants step by step through the painting chosen by the host and helps everyone recreate the painting. Art is dry and ready to be taken home with you at the end of class.
  • The classes are intended for guests with little or no artistic experience and guests find our classes to be a pleasant surprise! It is a perfect way to celebrate birthdays, brides, anniversaries or for simply just for fun!
