Why book a Painting Party?
A paint and drink wine party is a fun company team building event, adult birthday party, bachelorette party idea, group activity idea, family reunion activity, Meetup event, or holiday party. If you can dream up a reason to party, we can probably host it!
No artistic experience is required, and everyone will get to take home their own completed work of art. We supply all painting materials and artist instructions. We also provide basic party supplies for serving your food and drinks, such as cups, cork screws, bottle openers, ice buckets. You may bring any beer or wine (BYOB), and your painting will thank you for it!
YOU GET TO PICK THE PAINTING
When you reserve a private party, you get to pick the painting that everyone will paint! Our artist will guide all of your guests to paint the same image. After you've paid your deposit, we will send you a link to our party management page to choose from our exclusive library of over 6,000 paintings.
Our doors will open 30 minutes prior to your class time so that you may set up, socialize, and open gifts. Please have your guests arrive at least 10 minutes early so the instructor may begin at your scheduled class time.
COSTS & MINIMUMS
Private parties pay the same prices as our public classes, which are $37 per person for canvas, $39 for 10x30 and 8 x24 2-hour paintings and $45 for any real wood board. The host may opt to pay for multiple attendees or attendees may pay for themselves.
To book a private party, we require a non-refundable deposit and minimum number of painters. These requirements vary according to the start time of your party
All deposits are non-refundable. If you cancel, then you forfeit your deposit.
All parties must be paid in full the night before a party. If less than the minimum number of required painters attend your party, then the party host has to pay the difference to meet the minimum due. If you are not sure if your group can meet the minimum number of people, then we encourage you to bring your party into one of our Public painting classes. That way you'll get to have more fun people at your party! Parties of any size can also opt to leave their class open to the public, so then you are not required to pay a deposit or a minimum. Also, if your painting choice sells out a public class, the host will receive a gift certificate for a free class!
KIDS' BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEA!

Additional Information for Kid Parties
Host a unique party for your child's birthday, Scout Troop, sports team, or dance class! Kids love painting here and they also love our dance breaks! Plus, kids leave with their complete masterpieces, so there is no need to come back and pick them up at a later date.
Kid parties are available any day or evening of the week!
The host of the party can secure a reservation with a credit card. There is a 7 day cancellation policy. The credit card will be charged a $150 cancellation fee if less than 7 days notice of cancellation is given. If the minimum requirement is not met for the party through attendance, the host/hostess credit card will be charged the balance to meet the minimum.
Once the private party has been booked and the painting is selected, the host/hostess will receive a passcode to distribute to guests. Hosts can also email or print custom invitations. Guests can then go online and individually pay and register for the private party, or the host/hostess may instead pay with one payment for the party.
