Painting with a Twist FAQ
What is PWAT?
We are a fun arts and crafts studio with a bar! We supply everything needed to complete your masterpiece, including instruction from a talented local artist. No experience is neccesary. Sign up for a guided class or Pop In for some DIY fun. Uncork your inner artist! Grab your friends, purchase your favorite beverage from our bar, and enjoy the pARTy.
Do you take walk-ins for your public classes?
Typically, but we cannot guarantee you a seat as we make sure our prepaid guests gets accomodated first. Some classes require a lot of preparation time, including presketching and set up, so there may be times accomodating a walk-in guest is not possible. We want to make sure we are adequately prepared before class starts to provide everyone with the best experience, so we kindly request that you make a reservation if possible.
How can I make a reservation?

Where are you located?
We are located on the NW corner of Powers and Constitution in the Kohls/Safeway shopping center between Einstein’s and Helen’s Nails (behind Wells Fargo).
What can I bring?
You can bring your own non-alcoholic beverages and snacks if you'd like, but we carry a large variety of these in our store. Due to Colorado law we can not allow guests to BYOB, but we serve beer and wine from our bar.
What if I don't finish my painting?
Once a month, artists will be available to guide you through the rest of your painting in our S.O.S class. This event is free, but please make a reservation online because seats are limited. You can find the next upcoming date on our event calendar. If you need a extra time but not an artist's help, feel free to come in during our Pop In hours to DIY a little touch up.
I'm interested in a private party.
Please see the Party Info Tab for more information on booking a private party.
What is your age policy?
Instead of rules we have reccomendations. There are many public classes specifically designed to be family friendly that are recommended for children ages 6 and up. 1.5 hour long classes are great for younger kids, while a 3 hour class requires a lot more paitence and attention so we recommend those for teens 15+. Children must have an adult in the studio with them at all times. Everyone needs to have a paid reservation in order to remain on premises during classtimes (except parents accompaning their child to a kids class).
Pop In Projects are great for all ages! Our private birthday parties are great for kids 6+!
What is 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’.
