Painting with a Twist FAQ
What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist is a fun paint-and-sip art studio for anyone interested in having a good time! We offer both public and private events, where our experienced, enthusastic instructors teach our guests step-by-step through their very own, take-home masterpieces! We offer events every day of the week for kids, adults, couples, teens, and everyone in between! Check out our calendar and make your reservations to secure your seats.
What if I have no artistic skill?
Don't worry about it! No experience is necessary. All of our artists are experienced artists and instructors and are there to guide and encourage you! We think of this as FUN art, not Fine Art.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
Our studio is BYOB - we only serve paint water! Feel free to bring in your favorite beverage and some light snacks to enjoy during class! Those 21+ are welcome to bring any type of alcohol (Painting with a Twist is not liable for alcohol consumption.)
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 class! When class is done, your artwork is ready to hang! The only thing you may want to bring are some refreshments.
Do I have to make a reservation?
We prefer that you make your reservation and pay online. Walk-ins and in-store payments are accepted if the customer is in the studio prior to the start of the event, however, we cannot guarantee a spot without your reservation and all events are subject to change when they do not have reservations attached.
What is your age policy?
- ALL AGES events are intended for ages 5 and up, but are specifically tailored to children with both the painting and the environment. We do not allow drop-offs unless it is specified in the event description (ex. Kid's Drop-off Camp, Black Friday Drop & Shop, etc.)
- Weekday events past 7 PM are for those 12 years of age & up (unless stated otherwise on the website.)
- Weekend events past 7 PM are for those 17 years of age & up (unless stated otherwise on the website.)
Can my friends come and watch us without painting?
Everyone needs a paid seat to stay on premises during all events, with the exception of ALL AGES events / kids private parties (as parents may want to stay with/help their child and are not required to paint themselves.)
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
To ensure all of our guests receive the full Painting with a Twist experience, we host events at specific times throughout the week! To join an event, please view our calendar, select a painting you like, and register online (or call us at 346.808.7106 to place your reservation over the phone!)
We also offer Pop in & Paint days throughout the week for our more independent guests to choose any painting they'd like from our Pop in & Paint library; these events are not led by an artist, however, an artist will be there to set up and clean up your paint area, sketch your canvas (if needed) and refill paint & napkins. Please see our Pop In & Paint tab to learn more!
Cancellation policy is strictly enforced. All sales are final. Store credits will be issued to guests who provide cancellation by no later than 5 hours prior to the event start-time. When cancelling, please leave a voicemail or email us at email@example.com with your name, event date & title if unable to get in touch with us, as all calls and emails are time-stamped.
Private party hosts must follow the cancellation guidelines as outlined in their signed Event Agreeement.
Late guests will still be poured paint, but may forfeit painting instructions.
What type of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards for reservations made online and are also able to make reservations over the phone. Please note your card is automatically charged when you make a reservation. Payment will be due at the door prior to the start of class and can be made with cash or credit/debit. We do not accept personal checks. We can accept cash upon arrival, however, we do not carry much cash at the studio. Please note your reservation is not secure until you have made a payment.
Do you provide us with a wine opener, cups, ice?
We provide cups, plates, utensils, napkins, bottle openers, a refrigerator and a freezer. TABC will not allow us to give you ice to put in your drink. If you bring ice, we can provide you with a bucket for chilling. You are also welcome to bring a small cooler, or utilize our fridge/freezer.
What time should I arrive at the studio?
We suggest you arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than paint time, but no more than 20 minutes earlier than paint time, as our artists are busy getting ready for you! Late arrivals may not be able to finish their painting, as our classes must start and end on time.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you are comfortable in! We provide you with aprons to protect your clothing, but this is permanent acrylic paint. If you get it on your clothes, it will typically not come out.
Do you do reserved seating?
For large public classes, yes. When making your reservation you'll be provided with a "Speical Notes" section to select your seat-mates and to let us know if you're celebrating anything!
Do you do Private Parties?
Yes, every day of the week, any time of the day! Please check the Party Info tab for more information.
When does your next calendar come out?
The calendar for next month will be published the 1st of this month.
Can you teach a party at my location?
Yes, we do offsite events frequently! Please visit the Request Party tab or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Do you do any kind of discount or groupon?
We do not offer groupon, however, we have many DAILY DEALS! We offer $10 OFF your seat every Monday, a Buy 1 Seat, Get 1 Free special every Tuesday, x2 Paint Points on Wednesdays, Themed Thursdays, Free Mimosas on Saturday mornings, and a Self Care Sunday paint and candle-making discounted package.
We also participate in at least one "Painting With a Purpose" event each month where we donate our class proceeds to local non-profits and charities.
