Why book a Painting Party?

Something Creative and Fun - Throw a fun creative party!

Painting With A Twist (PWAT) is a great party option for your group! In a private event with PWAT, we teach one painting to your group and it is more fun than you can imagine until you do it! Everyone gathers in a relaxed and fun environment to celebrate the event of the day while painting a masterpiece! This is a truly a fun, unique way to get together and everyone will be so happy you organized it!

How does a Private Event at PWAT work?

The host reserves the private studio for a specific date and time, and then selects the painting the group will paint during the event. The day of the event, the guests all arrive up to 30 minutes before the class time to have some social time before painting. Classes are either 2 or 3 hours long - the art chosen determines if it is a 2 or 3 hour class. 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 will be a pleasant surprise! 

Minimum party size to reserve the private studio?

All private parties have a 8 person minimum and can accommodate up to 20 guests - if you have more than 20 guests, please contact us to arrange a time when we can accommodate your event!

If you don't have 8 for a private party, we can still accommodate your group in the main studio for a public class! Everyone is still seated together and will have a blast!
