Why book a Painting Party?
Private events can now be held either virtually on Zoom or in-person at our studio. We are taking all necessary precautions with regards to social distancing, limited maximum capacity, sanitizing, and wearing masks in our studio. Every person who enters is required by our local government to wear a mask. Please call if you have any questions.
It's Fun Art, Not Fine Art!
Painting with a Twist is the most fun party idea in Grapevine because you get to paint and drink! No art experience is needed, and you can bring any kind of beverages (including alcohol), snacks, party platters, cake, or catering.
No Extra Costs
There are absolutely no extra costs for hosting a private event, bringing a large group, or bringing your own alcohol and food. The host may opt to pay for multiple attendees, or attendees may pay for themselves.
No Stress & No Mess
Hosting your event with us is fun for everyone! We provide an artist instructor, painting materials, aprons, basic party supplies for serving your food and drinks, including: cups, plates, paper towels, corkscrews, bottle openers, ice buckets, and ice to chill bottles (we cannot legally provide ice for consumption); and a dedicated event management web page with customizable invitations you can print or email. Our doors open 30 minutes prior to your event time, so you may set up, socialize, and open gifts. And we cleanup everything for you!
Fun for All Ages & Abilities
There aren’t many activities that children, teens, adults, and seniors can have fun doing together, but it happens all the time in our painting classes. We can host parties for ages 5–infinity. (We apologize no babies or toddlers are permitted in our studio at any time.) Painting can also be fun and therapeutic for people with limited mobility or disablities; even blind people enjoy painting! (Please call to confirm if we can accommodate specific disabilities.)
You Get to Pick the Painting
When you host a private event, you get to pick the painting from our library of over 16,000 exclusive artworks! Our artist will guide everyone to paint your chosen design, then each of your guests will get to take home their own completed work of art. It’s a built-in party favor!
Party Whenever You Want
We can usually host events whenever you want, including mornings, afternoons, and evenings on weekdays and weekends. Use our Request a Party form to find out if your desired times are available.

Kids' Birthday Party Idea
Kids love painting at our birthday parties, and parents love not having to clean it up! Painting parties for kids can be booked for Saturday mornings only. The minimum age to attend is 5. For kids 12 and under, paintings are limited to our easier, 1.5-hour kids paintings, for which the cost is reduced to $27 per person. If you prefer to choose a painting from our full art library, then our regular adult prices will apply. All kids under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
HOW TO BOOK YOUR EVENT
1. Check your group size: We can host private events for up to a maximum of 20 people in our studio. There is no maximum size for virtual events. The minimum number of people you need to reserve a Virtual private event is 6 and 8 for in-studio events. The minimum on Friday and Saturday is 10, payment in full for the minimum is also required as the deposit on these weekend events. If the minimum number of people do not pay, then the event host is responsible for paying the difference to meet their minimum event cost.
- If you aren't sure if you can meet the minimum number of people, then we recommend inviting your group to join any public class on our Calendar. The massive benefits of this are described in the next point…
- Parties of any size can opt to leave their class open to the public, in which case you are not required to meet a minimum or pay a deposit. Plus:
- If the host’s painting choice sells out a public class, then the host will receive a gift certificate for a free class!
- We can seat your group together if everyone puts the host’s name in their online reservation form.
- The more, the merrier! Parties are usually more fun when there are more people in the room, even if you don't personally know everyone.
2. Request a date and time: Private parties may be scheduled during mornings, afternoons, or evenings on any day of the week up to 6 months in advance. To see if your date and time is available, please complete our online Request a Party form.
3. Pay the deposit: A nonrefundable deposit is required to reserve your event time. The deposit amount for parties with an 8-person minimum is $74. This nonrefundable deposit will be credited towards your minimum event cost. The deposit amount for parties with a 10 person minimum is the total cost of all 10 seats, which is $380 for a 2-hour painting.
4. Pick your painting: After we receive your deposit, we will email you a event management web link to pick your painting from our exclusive library.
5. Invite guests: From your event management page, you can customize invitations for print or email. Please tell guests to arrive 10–30 minutes before your scheduled event time to get set up, pour drinks, and socialize.
Terms & Conditions
- All private event deposits are non-refundable, which means once you pay your deposit, there are NO scenarios in which it will be refunded.
- If at any time you realize you may not meet your minimum attendance, you may request to turn your private event into a public class. If you do this at least 48 hours prior to your event time, then your minimum event cost will be waived.
