Children and Family Classes:
We allow all ages in most classes unless otherwise notes. Any class starting at 8:pm or later is strictly 18+. No exceptions. Throughout the month we offer family-friendly paintings. These classes are recommended for children 5 years of age and older (Though we WILL allow younger so long as the child is able to stay in their seat and does not casue a disturbance to the rest of the class). Children under age 12 must have an adult/ guardian with them in the studio at all times, which means the parent/guardian must also purchase a seat. Sharing a single canvas is not permitted. We do not allow spectating, infants* or toddlers. ALL patrons in studio must have a reservation. NO EXCEPTIONS.
*Should a guest choose to bring an infant to class regardless of the policy & there is a disturbance, the guest will be asked to leave with no credit/refund given.
Painting with a Purpose:
In our ongoing commitment to give back to the community, Painting with a Twist proudly sponsors a monthly fundraising class - Painting with a Purpose. 50% of the proceeds from the Painting with a Purpose classes are donated to local non-profit organization. Contact us if you know of an organization that could use a little ‘Pay it Forward’.
*NO REFUNDS* All sales are final/non-refundable.
Should you need to cancel your reservation, we are happy to offer a take-home paint kit or store credit to use on a future class. Please be sure to notify us of your cancelation more than one hour prior to the class to avoid any fees being deducted. Store credit will expire 1 calendar year from the date of issuance. All cancelation requests must be recieved via email, or by calling the studio. We do not accept text cancelations at this time.
If you cancel within one hour before the start of class you will be issued a store credit less a used supply/overhead fee of $10.
No call/no shows will not receive a refund or store credit. No exceptions.
No credit or reservation transfers will be issued for canceled reservations associated with a Painting With A Purpose Fundraiser.
**A 48hr notice must be received for any/all customized classes in order to receive a full credit or class transfer. Less than 48hr notice will receive a store credit of $35 (less the supplies and time used for the artist to sketch)
Painting with a Twist reserves the right to change the artist, postpone class, or cancel for unforeseen circumstances. Classes with insufficient enrollment may be cancelled by our office 3hrs prior to the start time. If class cancels, customers will be notified in advance via text and/or email. Store credit, transferring to a future class or a take-home paint kit will all be options for you. Thank you for understanding that refunds are not an option for any cancelations per policy. If you would like to find out if a class has sufficient reservations prior to booking, you can text us at 719-473-8663.
