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. Food is currenlty not allowed in the studio.

2hr classes are $37-$45 per person depending on the class.
3hr classes are $47 per person.
Paint Your Pet classes are $55 per person
If you are signing up for a couples class you have to pay for two seats, the price is per person.
