Bottle & Bottega FAQ
What is Bottle & Bottega by Painting with a Twist?
Bottle & Bottega Des Moines is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! In many of our events, we use acrylic paints on 16" x 20" canvas and teach the class step by step through the specific painting of the day. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
We hold painting events at specific times and those are the only times guests can come in and paint. To join a event, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online. Pre-registration is required for all events.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
Our studio is all BYO - we only serve paint water! Feel free to bring in your favorite wine, beer, or non-alcoholic beverage and some light snacks to enjoy during the painting event! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best!
Do I need to bring anything with me to paint?
Your reservation fee includes everything you need to create a beautiful and unique painting! When you arrive you are supplied with an apron, canvas, brushes, paints and step by step art instruction throughout the event! When the event is done, your artwork is ready to hang! The only thing you may want to bring are some refreshments.
