Q: Do I need a reservation?
A: You should make a reservation to ensure you have a seat and payment is required at the time of reservation. Walk-In's are hard to accommodate as there is no guarantee there will be a pre-sketched canvas ready or if seats are available.
Q: Can someone attend who does not want to paint?
A: All attendees must have a paid seat, we do not allow bystanders or observers to join a class who do not have a paid seat unless you are hosting a private pARTy. The only exception to this is our “family fun” classes, where kids paint and a parent may join them to help, without a paid seat or a private pARTy.

A: Yes, we do offer private events either in studio, offsite-(at your location) as well as virtual parties.
Q: What size is the canvas?
A: We use a 16 x 20 inch canvases, for most of our paintings. But occasionally paint on other size canvases, wood pallets, screens or glassware. The canvas size and subject will be described in the event details of the reservation, if other than the normal 16 x 20 inch canvas.
Q: Is there an age limit?
A: Yes, depending on the class. In most of the event descriptions, we indicate the minimum age requirement for that class. Our Family Fun classes are geared for kids ages 7+. Other daytime classes we recommend ages 10+ unless otherwise noted. For late Friday and Saturday night classes, we require attendees to be at least 14+ years of age, due to the higher volume of adult beverage consumption. Please note that it is the law that you have to be 21 years old to consume alcoholic beverages and ID’s are required to purchase or BYOB alcoholic beverages. Infants are not permitted in any of our classes, but we look forward to them painting when they reach the age minimum.

A: We do not offer refunds, but are happy to offer a store credit for individuals canceling with at least 48 hours’ notice. "No shows" will NOT be issued a store credit NO EXCEPTIONS! Store credits are only good for our Tampa-West location and expire within 6 months of issue, unless otherwise noted on the certificate.
