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 canvas and teach the class step by step through the specific painting for that session. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have a great time!
Do you offer underage classes?
Yes! All of our adult classes are now AGE 12 & UP! You can also find younger teen and kids classes on our calendar!
How do I reserve my seat?
You reserve your seat by going over to our calendar tab then clicking on the painting of your choice. You will then be able to enter your info in and pay for your spot! You can also call us and reserve your spot over the phone.
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
We hold classes at specific times and those are the times guests can come in and paint. To join a class, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online. We offer open studio sessions once or twice a month, during which painters may choose their own painting and paint it without an artist up on stage leading them through it. At least one of our artists will be available for any help needed. Pre-registration is required for our "open studio" class, as well as all other classes. Walk-ins to a class are allowed, but the class could be full.
Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?
Our studio offers complimentary iced water & hot coffee upon request. We also offer beer, wine, mimosas, sodas & teas for purchase If you have a sweet tooth or are just hungry we sell candy bars, chips, nuts, and cake balls! Also have sandwiches & chip/dip plates. Party hosts are allowed to bring in a cake (and ice cream, if desired). A freezer as well as a fridge is available.
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 and paint. When class is done, your artwork is ready to hang!
Can my friends come and watch us without painting?
