Frequently Asked Questions
What is paint and sip?
Paint and sip events combine social drinking with painting. Our paint and sip studio offers beer, wine and soft drinks. Everyone gets a canvas and follows an artist’s instructions to recreate the featured painting on their own canvas. Paint and sip is not a serious art course – it’s about socializing and having fun.
Can we bring drinks?
Our license doesn't allow BYOB. We do however serve beer, wine and soft drinks in the studio.
Can we bring food?
Absolutely. We recommend finger foods, just to make it easy.
Do I need to know anything about art?
Not at all. Our artists provide easy, step-by-step instructions to help everyone produce a great finished product.
This is my first time; what should I expect?
Expect a relaxed, fun atmosphere – there’s no pressure to be Van Gogh! We provide everything, including aprons to protect your clothes and a paint-free space for your purse or coat.
What does the cost include?
The cost includes all the art supplies you’ll need and 2-3 hours of painting instruction from an artist.
I want to register, but not pay in advance.
Payment is required at the time of registration to guarantee a seat.
Can I show up late?
Painting starts promptly, so you’ll have to catch up on your own if you arrive late.
Can I show up early?
Please do! Most guests arrive 20-30 minutes early to get settled and start on their first drink.
Is there an age requirement?
Public studio events are 18+. Children 13+ are permitted if accompanied by an adult (one painting adult per minor). For private parties and Little Brushes® events, there are no age restrictions.
Can I bring my baby?
No. Babies and small children are a distraction for other guests and make it hard to hear the artist’s instructions. Most studios won’t be able to accommodate a stroller or car seat next to your seat.
If you cancel at least 48 hours before the start of class, you can choose to receive a full refund or to opt for a class credit. No refunds permitted within 48 hours of the scheduled class time.
What are your studio hours?
Our studio is only open during scheduled events.
How do I pay in cash?
When you purchase items in-studio, like frames or wine glasses, you can pay with cash. You can’t pay for paint and sip events with cash, because advance registration is required.
What is a Date Night painting?
You and your date will paint separate canvases; when placed together, your canvases will match up to create one picture.
