Painting with a Twist FAQ
Do I need to have painting experience?
You do not need any painting experience at all! Our artist/instructor will walk you through your painting one step at a time. You will be amazed at what YOU painted by the time class is over. We try to not take ourselves too seriously during class. Instead, we play great music and play a few games that could earn you some PWAT swag! Please note that our 3 hour or custom classes (like Paint Your Pet) will be more difficult than our typical 2 hour class.
How much does a painting class cost?
The price for a 2 hour class ranges from $35-$45. The price for a 3 hour class ranges from $45-$55. We do have select classes (Coffee & Canvas , Manic Monday and 90 minute kid's classes) that are $25 per painter
What is included in that price?
We provide your canvas (16x20 inch, 12x12 inch, 10x30 long canvas), wood (18 inches) or screens (painting surface specified in the class description) easels, all necessary brushes and paints, aprons, an expert instructor/artist and a knowledgeable assistant who can help you along the way.
Do I need a reservation?
Yes, all guests must reserve in advance with payment. If you are painting with a group of less than 12 people, please write in the reservation comments who you would like to be seated with.
Will I be able to sit with my friends if we all sign up separately?
Yes! There is a "Who do you want to sit with?" section of your reservation form. Just write your group or your friend's name there.
Can I drop in anytime and paint?
We hold open classes at specific times and dates. Those are the only times guests can come in and paint and preregistration is required. To register for a class, visit our calendar. Find the painting you like and click on it to get signed up?
Can I pay with a check?
We do not accept checks for any payments. Cash or Credit Card is accepted for payment.
When should I arrive for class?
Please plan to arrive 15-20 minutes before the start of class to get uncorked, smocked and in your seat. Class will start promptly at the time listed on your reservation. Please note that we cannot allow anyone arriving more than 20 minutes late to participate in the class. It distracts from our other customers and takes away from your own painting experience. Please do not arrive any earlier than 30 minutes before class is scheduled to begin. We will be busy getting the studio ready for a fun class!
Do you do private parties?
Yes, we can accommodate up to 20 people in our private party room. To reserve the main studio, you would need at least 30 and we can accommodate up to 48. Click on the Party Info tab for information on private party options.
Do we all have to paint the same picture?
Yes, all of our classes are instructed step by step by our artists, so they are teaching one painting. Couples classes are the exception because there are 2 sides to a couples set. Many of our classes can be customized to make them your own (colors. words, etc). We also have the OPEN STUDIO class where guests can choose their own painting.
What are the age restrictions?
The majority of our classes are for adults ages 18 and up. These classes are “kid-free” because it's BYOB. You must be 21 years old to consume alcohol and we reserve the right to ask for ID. No one under age 18 (including infants) is allowed in these classes. Please be respectful of other guests and get a babysitter. This is a "night out" and kids are absolutely not allowed.
We still want the kids to be able to paint and have fun too! So we offer family friendly classes mainly on Saturday and Sunday before 6 pm. These classes will specify ages 6 & up, etc. No alcohol may be sold or consumed during these classes. Due to space limitations, younger siblings who are not painting are not permitted. One parent may accompany his/her child. Private Parties are another avenue to accommodate children. We offer kid’s painting parties for ages 6 and up. We are now offering and Adult with Teens 13+ class for those of you with teenagers who are not interested in our "little kid" paintings. This is something our customers have asked for and we listened. We also have great private party options for teens. See our Party Info section or contact the studio for more information.
Can I bring my own beverages or snacks?
You sure can! We have 2 food tables available for your snacks. Please note that if our class is sold out, there may not be a lot of room for snacks. You may BYOB. We provide plastic cups, corkscrews and bottle openers. When bringing in snacks, be respectful of time and space available. No buffets please.
Do you offer refunds?
We do not offer refunds. If you give us at least 24 hours notice when needing to cancel, you can change your reservation to a different event or receive a store credit. But we do not give refunds. Cancellations must be made by the reserving party. Guests who give less than 24 hours notice or who fail to show up for an event forfeit their registration fee and will not receive a store credit.
