Why book a Painting Party?

Thank you for your interest in hosting a Private Party at Painting with a Twist ~ Carrollwood!

What type of parties can I host?

This is a unique experience for ANY celebration. Whether you’re planning a Birthday Party with your family and friends, a Team Building adventure with your co-workers, a Bachelorette Party, Family Reunion, Girl's Night Out or just a fun evening out, our studio is a great environment for any social event.

What do you provide?

We provide paint, brushes, easels, canvases and aprons, all the necessary art supplies to complete your individual masterpiece!

We supply plastic glasses, wine bottle openers, napkins, plates, forks, and buckets for ice. WE DO NOT HAVE ICE, so bring some if you need it.

What can I bring?

Our studio is BYOB. Feel free to bring any type of food and beverage that you like, if you like. You can roll in a cooler full of your favorites or hire a caterer.  Our studio is licensed for beer, wine and champagne products. We are NOT licensed for hard alcohol.

You show up and we'll clean up. It's that simple.

OK, so let's take a look at all the serious stuff so we can get your event on the Painting with a Twist calendar.

Fun ideas for your party...

  • Choose a theme! Use the image of the painting throughout the event planning process if you'd like. Although all art is subject to copyright protection, we do allow the use of the image for invitations, decorations, and cakes.
