Painting with a Twist FAQ
What is the difference between a Twist at Home Painting kit and a Virtual Live Painting Event?
Twist at Home kits come with their own list of painting options. You can find all Twist at Home options here. All options come with supplies needed to complete your painting and detailed written instructions. Some of the more challenging paintings even come with a Vimeo link to view a recorded video tutorial.
Virtual Live Events are taught by my artist live via Zoom. Supplies kits are picked up at our studio prior to the event. No detailed written instructions are provided in these kits as we are teaching the event step-by-step as if you are enjoying an event in our studio.
What is an Open Party?
Open Parties are offered any day of the week at any time. If you would like to select your own painting and date/time, this is the option for you! All you need is 6 guests. Payment for 8 reservations is due upon scheduling. Open Party reservations cannot be cancelled to receive store credit as there is a 6 reservation minimum requirement for us to put the class on the calendar for you. All sales are final. You will have your own VIP section set up in your class that will include a stainless steel beverage/snack table all to yourselves. Once the class is booked and a painting selected, we will open it to the public to join.
Do I need to pay before the class, or can I pay when I arrive?
Yes! Prepaid reservations are necessary - only paid reservations are guaranteed seats in our class. You may pay online, by phone or in-studio ahead of time.
Do you offer group rates or discounts?
Our prices are already based on group rates, so everyone gets to enjoy our great prices whether coming in a group or by yourself! We have a Paint Points rewards program to reward our loyal guests. We also offer a Military Discount of $5 per Military ID holder. In order to receive the discount, you must come to the studio to reserve your seat prior to the scheduled class. We WILL NOT refund your credit card by $5 if you purchase the seat online.
Can someone that is not painting join me?
No. Only those with paid reservations are permitted to attend our classes.
Can we come alone or do we need to have a group?
All are welcome in our studio. We have tons of customers that show up by themselves. Who knows... you may just make some new friends at your paint party.
Can I paint whatever I want?
We will provide step by step instructions for the scheduled painting only. 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. Our monthly Open Studio classes offer an opportunity to paint any of our 2 hour paintings!
How do I join a class?
Simply visit our calendar, click on the title of the painting class you want to join and follow the simple reservation and payment process.
How do I sign up a group to attend an open to the public class?
Option 1: Select the number of seats you want to reserve for the specific class online and pay online.
Option 2: Ask everyone in your group to reserve individually online and to specify group name or point person in the "Special Requests" box.
My friends are signing up separately, how can I be sure we will be seated together for class?
Just add their names in the "special requests" section of the payment process and we will have you seated together.
How do I set up a Fundraiser at Painting with a Twist?
Send us an email requesting an event. We will have you fill out our Fundraiser Request packet in order to be considered. Once you have filled out and emailed us the completed request form, we will put you on the waiting list and contact you if and when you are selected. Though we would love to be able to help everyone, we receive far more fundraiser requests than we have dates available. We will do our best to get you in.
What are the prices of the classes?
Our 2-hour canvas or wine glass classes cost $35-$45 (depending on surface) per person, 3-hour classes are $45 per person, kid's 1.5 hour classes are $27, and Custom Art classes are $55-$65 per painter. (All art supplies included)
Can we bring anything other than wine?
Any drink is welcome! We don't judge. Please drink responsibly!
What is the difference between an Open Party and a Private Party?
Open Party - 6 (non-refundable) paid reservations due upon booking. You pick the painting and we open your class to the public to join. Available any day/night of the week subject to room availability.
Private Party - 15 (non-refundable) paid reservations due 10 days prior to the event. You pick the painting and get your own private room. Available any day/night of the week.
Can I arrive early to set up for my party?
Yes, you are welcome to arrive up to 30 minutes prior to your painting class.
When will the next month's calendar be out?
We will post the next month's calendar 1 month in advance.
What is provided with the cost of the class?
All painting supplies are included. We also provide wine cups, bottle openers and corkscrews.
Do we get to take our painting home that day?

We recommend a minimum age of 6 but younger painters may join and paint with the assistance of an adult.
