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.
Nothing but an open mind and a little creativity! We supply all of the materials necessary for painting including aprons and a cleaning solution that removes paint from fabrics!
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!
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 provide a cleaning solution designed to remove the paint, 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!
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!
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.
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.
To respect the relationship with our venues and their policies, we require that all classes are 21+ and therefore anyone under the age of 21 may not attend our events. This is to ensure that we abide by the liquor licensing laws of the venues and the satisfaction of all guests attending the class. If you are interested in booking or learning more about our kid's class you can check out our sister brand, Painting & Kiddos at paintingandkiddos.com. Here you will find more information regarding these events.
Premium classes go beyond step-by-step painting events. They are done on different mediums then the traditional 16x20 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.
Regular scheduled events are $45 per person. This includes all your materials, as well as, 3 hours of step-by-step instruction from a professional artist. You can, however, sign up for our mailing list here on our website to receive occasional deals and discounts!
The new event calendar is released on every 20th of the month. For example, our September calendar would be released on August 20th, our October calendar would be released September 20th, etc.

If you entered the code correctly and it is still not working, check the expiration. If your code is expired the promotional value will not work. Email us the expired code and we will activate it for face value!

Private Events FAQ
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 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 hour prior to the event in order to prepare proper supplies.
Our staff will work with you to choose the perfect venue for your 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 from 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 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!
