Painting with a Twist FAQ
We realize the importance of keeping our staff and guests safe, and we have new systems in place to ensure everyone's safety. Staff will sanitize all surfaces regularly, including counter tops, door handles, credit card machines, brushes, and so on. Staff will wear face masks and will wash hands as often as possible. Help us practice social distancing and keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet from others. If you are sick - please do not enter our facility. You can contact us and we will be happy to reschedule your pick up or class that you have registered for.
Painting with a Twist is ready to get back to work and taking care of our guests has ALWAYS been our #1 goal. Due to current restrictions, purchasing kits and our LIVE|Virtual Events are a great option for gathering with friends in a safe setting, from the comfort of your home. We also have kits for Kids and LIVE|Virtual Classes for them as well. As the state allows we will be safely opening our doors for in studio events.
What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting or just having a good time! In our classes we use acrylic paints on a 16x20 canvas, 10X30 Canvas, 12X12 Canvas, Mini Ornament Canvas, Wine Glasses, and Wood Cutouts and teach the class step by step through the specific painting of the day. No experience necessary! At the end of the class, you will have a one-of-kind creation and hopefully a new found talent you will want to explore!
