Benefits of a private party

Our Private Party Studio can accommodate a maximum of 34 guests, and our main studio can seat up to 50 painters.

  • Choose your art! — A link will be sent to you to select a painting from our collection of nearly 10,000 options. You may choose from 1.5-hour (kids' class; $25/person), 2-hour ($35/person) or 3-hour ($45/person) paintings. In addition to different-sized canvas, we have classes that feature screen art and wood pallets. 
  • Choose the date and time! — Schedule your party any day of the week, space permitting. We have morning, afternoon, and evening slots available.
  • Choose your instructor! — You may request your favorite Painting with a Twist artist to lead your party.
  • You have the Private Party Studio all to yourself during the class, plus 30 minutes before and after your party to celebrate.
  • No extra charge to reserve our Private Studio: Prices are the same per person as our regular public classes.
  • No setup, no cleanup — just show up!

We provide all of the art supplies and instruction.

Guests may bring food items and non-alcoholic beverages. Wine, beer, champagne, and soft drinks are available from our in-studio bar; coffee and bottled water are complimentary.

How do I reserve and pay for my party?

There is no charge to reserve the private studio, but there is a 10-person minimum to host a private party. Please complete the Request Party form to automate the process and speed up your reservation. Once we've confirmed availability of your desired date and time, we'll create an event page on our calendar where your guests can register for the class. We'll also send you a link to our library so you can select the featured painting. 

Cancellation and minimum-painter policies

No deposit is required, but a debit/credit card is required to confirm your party time slot. The debit/credit card will NOT be charged unless your group does not meet the 10-person minimum on the day of the party. The debit/credit card on file will be charged a 3-seat fee ($105) if the party is cancelled within 48 hours of its scheduled start time.

Additional information for kids' parties

Host a unique party for your child's birthday, Scout Troop, sports team, or dance class. Kids love painting here and they also love our games! 

Typical kids' parties feature a 1.5-hour painting with 30 minutes before and after class to allow time for breaks, games, cupcakes, presents, etc.

Same cancellation and minimum-painter policies apply.

On-location parties

We periodically host public painting parties at various locations around town. For groups of 20 or more, we can travel to a workplace or community centers for private events. Please inquire for details.
