How long do Painting Parties last?
Most paintings take up to 3 hours to paint, depending on the size. For youth parties, we use smaller canvases and paint for 2 hours. 1 or 2 breaks are taken at different stages of the painting or as needed. If your event has time constraints, we can design a program to fit your time frame.
What size canvas do you use?
For traditional painting parties, our standard size is 12" x 16", however you may request to upgrade to a 16" x 20" for a small fee. Children's parties include an 8" x 10" or 11" x 14" canvas. For special painting programs, the canvas size is noted.
Will I get messy?
We use a non-toxic, water soluble acrylic paint which dries quickly. While we do provide disposable aprons, and recommend that you roll up your sleeves, you should not wear anything that you couldn't get a little paint on. Most artists get a little paint on their hands which washes right out, however, boo boos happen. A small amount on your clothing is cleanable with soap and warm water while wet. Try a little liquid fabric softener in the wash to remove any remaining color.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
Because of limited seating, advance registration is always recommended. Maximum participation is determined by the location. A waiting list is created for for sold-out classes by calling the venue.
How do I pay for a session?
Each event has it's own payment options. Some venues prefer that you call to reserve and pay for your spot in advance. If online registration is available, the payment button will be visible when you click on "view event".

Yes. For Wine & Painting parties, the minimum age is 18. You must be 21 years old to consume alcoholic beverages. Other painting parties may be open to all or certain ages as designated on the events page.
What time do I need to arrive for a session?
We request that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your session, which allows you time to sign-in, grab a beverage, and mingle. Seating is first come, first serve. Groups can reserve space together upon early arrival. If you arrive late, the instructor will try his/her best to catch you up.
