Painting with a Twist FAQ

What is Painting with a Twist?

Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! In our classes we use acrylic paints, typically on a 16x20 inch canvas and teach the class step by step how to complete the specific painting for the day. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!

How does this work?

We have an Event Calendar that displays the specific paintings we will be teaching and at what date and time. If you see a painting you like and it's scheduled on a day you can attend, you can go ahead and reserve your spot by registering online. The artist/instructor will guide the whole class on how to complete the specific painting. 

How much does it cost?

Two hour classes on 16x24 canvases and Wooden Cutout Crosses are $35, three hour classes on 16x24 canvases and LARGE 24x36 canvas classes are $45, select Family Fun classes and Kids/Family Day events are $25, NEW 12x12 Square canvas classes are $30 and Paint Your Pet is $55!

Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?

Yes, feel free to bring snacks and Non-Alcoholic Drinks to enjoy during class if you would like. Our Studio has been and continues to be Alcohol Free & Family Friendly. The State of Kentucky prohibits BYOB. We have however partnered with the Hilton Doubletree to offer our patrons $4 drink specials. Feel Free to stop by before or after your class!

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.

Can I just paint whatever I want?

We will provide step by step instructions for the scheduled painting. If you want to do your own thing, go for it, but there will not be step by step guidance on how to complete it.

Can I stop in anytime and paint?

We hold classes at specific times and those are the only times guests can come in and paint. To join a class, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online. Pre-registration is required for all classes.

How do I book a private party?

Call us during office hours to check availability for the date you want. We will need a credit card number on file to reserve a party date and time for you. Please see Party Info page for further details.

How do I sign up a group to attend an open to the public class?

Option 1: Select the number of seats you want to reserve for the specific class online and pay online.

Option 2: Ask everyone in your group to reserve individually online and to specify group name or point person in the "Special Requests" box.

We do have a customer rewards program you will want to get in on! Before registering, make sure to set up a rewards account.

Do I have to make a reservation? Can I just walk in?

If you want to guarantee a seat for yourself, you have to make a reservation. Many classes will sell out. Also, if there are not any reservations for a class, we may cancel the class or switch the painting. We set up a painting station for each person. Please make a reservation so we can set up for you and have you seated appropriately with your group if you are joining one.

When will you be doing (insert painting name) again?

We try to provide a combination of old favorites and new paintings on each calendar. If there is a painting your really want to see on the next calendar, email us at lexington@paintingwithatwist.com and we might be able to accommodate your request. We have many paintings that we rotate through. We love to hear what your requests are.
