Can beginners take the classes?
Yes! Almost 90% of the customers that come in to paint have never painted before.
Do you have any age requirements?
We have classes for all different ages and recommend the youngest painter in the studio to be at least 5+ when attending our all ages or family classes. All nighttime classes after 6PM willl permit painters aged 15 and up to paint while accompanied by a fellow supervising painting adult. Please notify us beforehand if you are bringing a painter under the age of 18 so we can accomodate accordingly. Our age requirements on each class can vary and are given more detailed information in the description so you can figure out which class is right for you and your group!
How can I book a private party?
First; familiarize yourself with our private party information by going to the party info tab. Then either fill out a Party Request using the tabs to your left or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and give us your phone number with a good time to call and we can set everything up!
Do you only have evening classes?
Every month is different! We have several class types. Our regular calendar will always contain adult/evening classes throughout the week. We also offer After School Specials and Family Fun Days on the weekends. Always check the current calendar at www.paintingwithatwist.com/Jacksonville for the most updated schedule.
What do I need to bring?
That’s totally up to you! We are a BYO studio, but we provide everything from the apron to the finished canvas at the end of the class! You are more than welcome and we encourage you and your group to show up 15-30 minutes beforehand to set up decorations, food/refreshments, etc. We have tins we can fill with ice, small cups, and refreshment tables for you to set up your goodies! There are many great restaurants & bars in our area that you may want to try out - Taverna, BB's, Jimmy Johns, The Olive Tree, European Street, Tropical Smoothie, Mezze Bar & Grill, Bistro Aix, Grape and Grain Exchange, Beer:30, V Pizza, and the list goes on!
Where are you located?
We are located just north of the Square – right before Rusted Vintage Market & Dance Trance. We are about 1 mile south of downtown on San Marco Blvd. in between LaSalle and Cedar St.
Do you have parking?
Yes. There is street parking and we also have a back lot behind our studio.
If I book a class and I can’t come, do I get a refund?
We have a 48-hour cancellation policy for a refund. If you cancel 48-hours in advance you will receive a full refund. If you cancel 24 hours in advance you can receive store credit for the class which will be sent to you via email as long as we are notified AT LEAST 24 hours in advance to be able to offer your seat to another customer.
I have a big group of people that want to come to a class, can we all sit together?
Of course! There is a special notes section at the time of your registration where you can tell us who you want to sit with. No need to reserve together just be sure to fill out who you'd like to sit with and we'll take care of the rest.
What’s the Twist?
We believe there are several different “Twists” that make us different from other art studios! The main “Twist” is any adult 21+ is allowed to bring their own adult beverage (or liquid courage) to enjoy the painting class and truly make it their own party! We are a BYO establishment which means you can bring your own food, snacks, or anything you'd like to enjoy before and during your class.
Q: When do you post a new monthly schedule?
A: The calendar is posted on the 15th of each month for the following month.
Q: Can my friends hang out and NOT paint?
A: All attendees painting or not must purchase a seat in advance. We recommend that EVERYONE paints! Who wants to watch paint dry anyway! :) We can acommodate a limited number of non-painting guests for Private Parties if space allows. Please call the studio during office hours to inquire about more details.
