What is Painting with a Twist?
Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting! In our typical classes we use acrylic paints on canvas or wood surfaces and teach the class step by step through the specific painting of the day. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
We hold classes at specific times and those are the only times guests can come in and paint. To join a class, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online. Pre-registration is required for all classes. We also offer Twist at Home, where you can pick up a painting kit and create it from your home on your own time.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
We are NOT a BYOB. We offer wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase. There will also be light snacks available for purchase, but feel free to bring in your own snacks to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best!
Do I need to bring anything with me to paint?
Your reservation fee includes everything you need to create a beautiful and unique painting! When you arrive you are supplied with an apron, canvas, brushes, paints and step by step art instruction throughout the class! When class is done, your artwork is ready to hang!
Can my child come with me to paint?
We have specific classes on our calendar for young artists! We do not allow babies or toddlers in public events.
- Family Day classes are recommended for ages 6 and up.
- All Ages classes are recommended for ages 6 and up.
- Teen & Up classes are intended for ages 12 and up.

Can my friends come and watch us without painting?
Everyone needs a paid seat to stay on premises during all classes, except during a Family Day class when you may stay with your child. Please limit one non-painting parent/guardian per party.
