What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist is a great place to have fun with your friends, or meet new friends; relax or just let your hair down and be you; or simply discover your inner artist. Bring your favorite bottle of wine or beverage, and paint along with our artist to create your own work of art that you will take home at the end of the evening.
We provide all painting supplies and artist instructions. No art experience is needed. Simply be ready to have a Twisted good time!
Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! In our classes we use acrylic 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!
***ADVANCED RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED TO GUARANTEE YOUR SEAT.*** We recommend reserving for an event as soon as you are sure you are coming. Events that don't have any advanced reservations will be cancelled or the painting changed. Alternatively, many events sell out and you may not get a seat if you wait until the last minute to reserve.
Is the Media studio handicap and wheelchair accessible?
Yes! Our front door is a flat threshold right from the sidewalk (no steps)! Our bathrooms have handicap stalls. We have had many guests attend in wheelchairs without any issues. Please let us know, in advance, so we can assure your seating placement is the best one for you.
How long are classes/events?
We have 2 hour classes/events and 3 hour classes/events.
Can I come alone?
YES! Painting with a Twist is very stress relieving and a great way to allow your creativity to flourish! Many of our guests come solo to a public event to enjoy a night of ME time!
What time can we arrive?
Doors open 30 minutes in advance of the painting start time. If you arrive earlier than that, you may have to wait to get into the room.
For ALL parties, private AND public, PLEASE ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 10-15 MINUTES AHEAD OF THE SCHEDULED START TIME. This will ensure everyone is in their seat and ready to paint on time!
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, otherwise you may not get a seat.
What are the options for Team Building Events?

Can I pay with a check?
We do not accept payment by check. We do accept cash or major credit cards (VISA/MC/DISCOVER/AMEX) for all reservations, in studio. Online payments must be paid with a credit card and/or gift certificate.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
Our studio is all BYO! Feel free to bring in your favorite beverages and some light snacks/appetizers to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best! We provide plastic cups, paper plates, napkins, corkscrews, bottle openers, and an ice bucket and cooler. (Ice is NOT provided. Utensils are NOT provided.) We ALSO have a purified water cooler so you will have an unending supply of purified water (HOT and COLD).
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. We provide paper plates, cups, and napkins, wine and bottle openers, and an ice bucket (Ice is NOT provided. Utensils are NOT provided.) We also have a purified water cooler for an unending supply of purified water (hot and cold).
I have problems sitting on a stool. Are there any alternate chairs to sit on?
At PWAT-Media, every one of our stools has a back to it, which makes sitting on a stool much more comfortable. If you are still concerned that you will be too uncomfortable sitting on a stool with a back, please make a comment in your reservation (or by calling the studio) letting us know and we will provide a cushioned folding chair for you to sit on. It is important to let us know this, in advance.
Can my child come with me to paint?
We have specific classes on our calendar for young artists!
Can my friends come and watch us without painting?
Everyone needs a paid seat to stay on premises during all classes, except during All Ages classes. Adult supervision is required for painters under 15 but the adult does not have to pay to paint unless they want to (during All Ages classes).
PLEASE NOTE: Photos are taken during events and posted to our social media page and promos. Please feel free to let us know if you do not want to be included in the photos.
PWAT-MEDIA NEVER posts photos with young children in them. All kids' event photos are emailed directly to the attendees and never posted to social media.
Please note our policy to cancel applies to individuals in all public and private events.
For Regular Public Classes:
Please arrive no later than 10 minutes before the scheduled event time to prevent disruption to the class.
