Painting with a Twist FAQ
What is PWAT?
We supply everything needed to complete your masterpiece, including instruction from a talented local artist. No experience is required. At the end of the class, you will have a one of a kind piece of artwork to take home. Uncork your inner artist! Grab your friends and snacks and purchase your favorite wine, beer or soft drink from our bar. We want you to relax and have a blast!
**Due to local laws, we are unable to offer BYOB. We do serve beer and wine at our Inspiration Bar. Please be prepared to show ID. We also carry water and a variety of soft drinks.**
