What is Included FAQs

Paint and sip events are painting classes instructed by professional artists set in a social environment where you have the ability to order drinks and food from the hosting venues. Locations include Sacramento paint and wine, Tucson, San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles.

Regularly scheduled events are between $35 – $45 per person (Premium events and Online/ Virtual events may have a different prices depending on the type of event). This includes all your materials, as well as, 2.5 hours of step-by-step instruction from a professional artist. You can, however, sign up for our mailing list HERE to receive occasional deals and discounts!

We provide 2.5 hours of instruction provided by one of our Master Artists. We also supply all of the necessary materials needed, including; paint brushes, canvas, acrylic paint, easels, measuring tool, aprons and a cleaning solution that removes paint from fabrics! All you need to do is check-in and prepare yourself for an amazing experience you will remember for a lifetime. (Food and Beverage are not included in the ticket price, but may be purchased through the partnering venue).

No. Food and beverage are not included in our ticket price but are available for purchase separately through most of our venues. If you would like to bring your own bottle of wine, check with the venue first. Some venues do not allow it at all and others will charge a corkage fee. Most of our venues host a happy hour for our guests during the painting class, which sometimes ends up being a more cost effective alternative!

Tips are much appreciated but not expected. If you feel the artist or assistant has done a great job then feel free to express your gratitude!

Before the Event FAQs

In short, no. At our Paint and Sip events, we welcome newbies. Our professionally trained instructors are all qualified fine artists and will guide you through the process of creating art in a simple step-by-step process.

Out of respect for our venue partners’ liquor licenses, we post all Painting & Vino events for 21 and older. That being said, if you have a mature young adult that wants to attend one of our events and you have contacted the venue directly and they have given you permission, we have no issue with you bringing an underage participant. To reiterate, you must have the venues okay before you can bring them to one of our classes.

The new Painting and Vino event calendar is released every 15th of the month. For example, our September calendar would be released on August 15th, our October calendar would be released on September 15th, etc.

Unfortunately, our classes are usually sold out to capacity and therefore we cannot provide seating for un-registered guests. We do sometimes have room for walk-in guests that can pay at the door, however, this is not guaranteed.

Premium classes go beyond step-by-step painting events. They are done on different mediums then the traditional 16×20 canvas and require both more preparation and materials to execute. Our instructors provide techniques, artistic tips, more one-on-one attention and customization. The best part of these classes is you create unique art but still in an encouraging environment with guidance by a professional instructor. These classes truly honor self-expression and all attendees will leave with a great gift or piece of art for their home.

At the Event FAQs

Absolutely! Remember, this is your painting experience and we encourage creative expression. Want a certain color of paint? If we have it, you can use it. You are allowed to color outside the lines.

Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to the start of class. Guests are asked to line up at the door to check-in with our assistants at this time. We suggest aiming to arrive at the venue 30 minutes prior to the start of class in order to leave yourself ample time to find parking, which can sometimes take 10-15 minutes.

We use non-toxic acrylic paint. Acrylic paint is water-based, which means, it will wash off with warm water and soap. If it gets on fabrics, we have a cleaning solution designed to remove the paint (as long as it is still wet), although it is suggested you wear clothing you do not mind getting paint on. We also supply aprons for you to wear in order to protect your clothing.

We encourage creative expression in all forms! You can paint whatever you would like. Feel free to change the colors of the painting to match your own décor or the décor of a friend you may be gifting the painting too!

Absolutely! There is plenty of time and space to order at any point during the event. Servers will come around throughout the duration of the event to take orders and replenish food and beverage. You are also welcome to arrive early and eat before we get started if you would like. Again, food and beverage are available for purchase separately through the hosting venue. Food and beverage are not included in our ticket price. Outside food is not allowed in any of our venues.

Our events are 3-hours (compared to most competitors 2-hour events) with 2.5 hours dedicated to the instruction. This allows more time to relax and enjoy the process of creating art. Of course, Private Events can be adjusted to meet your needs.

Private Events FAQs

Yes. For a small fee of $50, our instructors will create a custom painting that can be taught within the agreed-upon time slot.

We require a minimum of 15 people at $45 per person to book a private event. If you want to host a private event with less than 15 people, we can book the event, however, you must still submit payment for 15 people. We also require a nonrefundable deposit to hold the event, which will be applied toward your final balance. The remaining balance will be collected on the day of the event and will be reflected by the final headcount. We do ask that we receive credit card information for the final balance and a final headcount 48 hours prior to the event in order to prepare proper supplies.

Our staff will work with you to choose the perfect venue for your Paint and Sip event. You can use any of the venues we are already affiliated with, which we can send you via email based on your location. We can also try to work with a venue of your choice or a private residence as long as either can accommodate our events. We will handle contact and scheduling with the venue to ensure proper availability and booking of your event.

As a host you will need to provide adequate tables and chairs for the event (we may have a limited amount of tables available for your use depending on the date). Our staff will help determine whether or not your space can accommodate our events and offer suggestions of proper space planning. Our assistants setting up the event will also be able to help configure the tables and chairs upon arrival. We will also need access to a water source to fill the water cups to wash the brushes and about an hour of time before the event for proper set up. Other than that, you do not need to worry about anything! We supply all of the painting materials necessary for a fun and relaxing event!

All food and beverage purchases are separate from our ticket price and are to be handled by the hosting venue. If you book an event with one of our venues we can help you get in contact with the right person to review food and beverage options. Many of our venues have several options available including buffet style dining and package selections. If you host your event at a private residence, you will be responsible for the food and beverage if desired.

Yes! You may choose any painting in our library! It is best to choose a couple of different paintings just in case the artist is not available on the specific date requested. You may request a specific artist for your paint and sip paint party and we can send you a link to their individual portfolio to choose from (as long as they are available for your date). You may also request a custom painting for an additional charge if you have something specific in mind you would like to paint!
