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 acrylc paints on 16x20 canvas and teach the class step by step through the specific painting of the day. Most of our guests have no painting experience, and all of them have great success!
Do I have to wear a mask?
Effective March 10th, 2021 the mask mandate was revoked by Governor Abbott and we no longer require masks or face shields in our events. We encourage our guests to stay safe and continue to wear a mask if they wish. We will be continuing to disinfect and sanitize all touchable surfaces and supplies (brushes, cups, easels).
What is seating like/capacity?
We are open 100% for private and public events. When possible with smaller events we will seat groups away from each other, but we will not limit our capacity to space groups apart. If you are coming with others, please put their names/group name in the Special Comments section when registering so that we can seat you all together. *We are a participatory event, every person in the studio MUST have a paid reservation, no unpaid observers. Private rooms can be reserved, see our Private Party Information page.
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
At this time we are not a walk in studio as we do not have artists on staff at all times. 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. We do have DIY Art Kits available in studio and ready for pick up Tuesday - Fridays.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
Our studio is all BYO - we only serve paint water! Feel free to bring in your favorite beverage (adult beverages limited to beer and wine or a premix margarita type beverage) and some light snacks to enjoy during class! Remember, you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best! For events titled "Ages 5+" or "Teen Friendly" in the title, alcohol is not allowed.
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 my child come with me to paint?
We have specific classes on our calendar for young artists!
- All Ages, Ages 5+ classes are intended for ages 5 and up.
- Teen & Up classes are intended for ages 12 and up.
- Evening classes with no age in the title are for adults 18 and older, but guests 15-17 can attend with a paid parent. *Adults will be cutting loose and having a good time. Due to BYOB rules, children younger than 15 are not able to attend these events, no exceptions.
Can my friends come and watch us without painting?
Observers and non paying guests are NOT allowed in any public or adult private events, including kids and family day classes - all persons present must have a paid seat to be in attendance. The only exception is children's private birthday parties.
