Can I just walk-in before a class?
Due to limited space, each guest must have a reservation made online prior to class.

Choose from our variety of public classes posted online or book your private party of 10 or more with us!
What type of Payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards for reservations made online. Please note your card is automatically charged when you make a reservation online. For phone reservations, we require full payment for one or two seats and a minimum of half payment to hold your reservation for 3 or more. Remaining balance will be due at the door the night of the class and can be made with Cash or Credit/Debit. We do not accept personal checks. If you are a no-show and/or do not give us at least 24 hours notice VIA EMAIL that you need to cancel, the card on file will be charged. Please see Cancellation Policy for more information.
Do you sell wine and snacks?
We are a BYOB studio. This means you can bring anything you want to eat or drink including alcohol, provide you are over the age of 21. We do check ID.
Do you provide us with a wine opener, cups, ice?
We do not provide ICE. You can bring a small cooler with you. We provide you with cups, napkins and a corkscrew. We do not provide plates or silverware. If you need them, please bring them with you.
What time should I arrive at the studio?
Please arrive 20-25 minutes before start time. Late arivals will miss important class instruction and should not expect individual "catch up" time from the instructor or assistant. There will be no extention of class time for late arrivals. We offer SOS for painters who do not finish.
Can I bring my own wine glasses and decorations?
You may bring plastic wine glasses, no glass stemware is permitted due to breakage. Wine and Beer Bottles are allowed. You may bring balloons, table cloths, any decorations you’d like except Confetti or Glitter. Please try to keep decorations and snacks simple.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you are comfortable in. We provide you with aprons(Smocks) to protect your clothing, but this is permanent acrylic paint. If you get it on your clothes, it will not come out. We do suggest that you wear short sleeves or roll up your sleeves and pin your hair back to keep you from getting it into the paint.
Do you do reserved seating?
Yes. The best thing to do is pick one person in your party and have everyone list that one person as the “person they want to sit with” for example : “Laurel’s Bday,” or “Anna’s GNO” or “Winston’s Anniversary.” There is a specific question asking that on your reservation online. Let us know what you’re celebrating too!
What is your cancellation policy?
For Public Classes: We require a minimum of 24 hours notice for 1-2 reservations and 72 hours notice for 3 or more reservations in writing VIA EMAIL in order for you to receive a full studio credit.
