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 16" x 20" canvas, 10" x 30" canvas, Rebeca Flott 16" x 20" screen art, and other specialty classes. We teach the class step by step in either the 21+ beer/wine bar room or Family room for all age. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!
Other Local Services include:
-Pay to Play: You will have access to our all age room or 21+ room. You can come alone or as a group. You can come and work on any project of your choice, start a new hobby, have a book club, paint club, scrap booking, or any type of project at all! We are offering $15 per person over the age of 5 years old to come and join us Monday- Thursday, 9 am to 3 pm
-After-School Art Programs: We currently provide semester-length art programs at Los Perales and Donald Rheem Elementary of Moraga and John Swett Elementary of Martinez. If you think your after-school coordinators would be interested in our program please have them contact us! We also are a vendor for several Bay Area homeschool programs for summer camps and every Fall and Spring Semester. You can check to see if we are an approved vendor for your homeschool program or request us to be added to you curriculum through your school program!
-We also host frequent private parties on-location! Great for: Birthday Parties, Team-builders, graduation parties, holiday parties, and more! We are happy to accomodate all age parties in our Family Room.
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
We hold classes and events at specific times and those are the only times guests can come in and paint. If you did not complete your painting from a prior class we will hold a free S.O.S (Save our Stuff) class two to three times a month for you to come by and complete it. (S.O.S.’s are for all classes but not Pay and Play events) They will be posted online each month. To join a class, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online. Pre-registration is recommended for all classes. Walk-ins are welcome for scheduled public classes, but we cannot guarantee there will be seats left!
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
No outside drinks are permitted. We sell beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks at great prices! You are welcome to bring in your favorite food to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best! You can even order food directly to the studio, provided that you are present to receive it and pay for it.
