Painting with a Twist FAQ

What is Painting with a Twist?

Painting with a Twist is a fun art studio for anyone interested in painting AND for those that don’t know they are interested! We use acrylic paints on 16x20 canvas and one of our talented and entertaining artists teach the class step by step through a specific painting. Most of our guests have no painting experience and all of them have great success!

Where are you located?

You will find us in the center of the DeWitt Town Center at 3179 Erie Blvd East between Five Guys and Empire Buffet. We are just minutes east of the Thompson South exit off of the 690.

What are the prices for a class?

Two hour classes are offered for $35 and three hour classes are $45. Kids classes are $25 and select Family and Senior classes are offered for $25.

Can I stop in anytime and paint?

We hold opent to the public classes at specific times that are indicated on our event calendar and those are the only times guests can come in and paint unless you are part of a private party. To join a class, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online. Pre-registration is required for all classes. Everyone needs a paid seat to stay on premises during all classes except during a Family class.

How soon should I register for a class?

If you see a class you are interested in, it's best to register asap!  Some classes have been known to sell out quickly, while others get changed if no one has registered for it.

What time should I arrive for a class?

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to mix and mingle and start your party hour. Classes will start promptly as scheduled. We reserve the right not to seat latecomers if it is disruptive to the class process. There will not be refunds/studio credit issued for late guests.

Are the classes just for women?

No, definitely not! Although the majority of our guests are women, some of our most enthusiastic painters are men. We offer Date nights and Couples nights that are a great success for ALL involved. Come try something out of the box!

Are we allowed to bring in beverages and food?

We offer quality beverages for your convenience at reasonable prices that include a variety of wine, beer, soda and water! However, feel free to bring in your favorite beverage (hard liquor is not allowed) and some light snacks to enjoy during class! Remember you are painting most of the time so finger foods are best!

Alcohol Policy: You must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcohol in our studio and you will be required to provide proof of age. It is against NY state law to leave with an opened, unfinished bottle of wine or beer. Once an alcoholic beverage has been opened it may not be removed from the studio without being re-corked.

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!

What should I wear?

We have PWAT aprons for all guests to wear during class to protect your clothing. Please wear whatever is comfortable, but keep in mind that acrylic paint doesn’t come out of fabrics well.
