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 on 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 painting 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 make a reservation online or call the studio during office hours to reserve by phone. The artist instructor will guide the whole class on how to complete the specific painting. Bring your drinks to enjoy during class if you would like.

How much does it cost?

2hr classes are $39-$48 per person depending on the surface.

3hr classes are $49-$59 per person depending on the surface.

Paint Your Pet classes are $59 per person

If you are signing up for a couples class you have to pay for two seats, the price is per person.

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.

How do I book a private party?

Call us during office hours to check availabilty for the date you want or fill out a Party Request form. Payment for 3 seats is required to book. Please see Party Info page for more details.

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

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

Option 2: Ask everyone in your group to reserve individually online and to specify a group name or point person in the "Special Requests" box, such as "Dell group" or "Sarah's birthday group."

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

Advance payment is required for all reservations. Some classes 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 thes is a painting you really want to see on the next calendar, email us at northaustin@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.

Will my painting be dry at the end of the night?

Yes, if there are damp places we have hair dryers which will dry them quickly.

What do I wear?

Wear something comfortable that you don't mind if a little paint gets on it. We do supply aprons, but if you by chance get paint on your clothes and it drys, it will not come out. If you catch it while it is still wet you can usually get it out with some soap and water.

Arrive 10-15 minutes early to get uncorked, smocked, & in your seat! Painting will begin promptly at the time listed. If you are late to class, you may not be allowed to paint and forfeit your payment. Painting With a Twist is more than just a painting, it's a step-by-step experience!
