November!

Hello Friends! Painting with A Twist has never had a class price increase since we opened our doors. Starting in November, you will see that our classes have increased in price by two to four dollars. This will cover the increased cost of painting surfaces and shipping. We LOVE this place; our awesome customers, excellent artists, and celebratory atmosphere - we want to stay right where we are and do what we do. See you at the studio! Tyra
