How It Works
How To Book
Private events are booked by placing a $250 refundable deposit (per studio) to secure your desired date and time (after availability is confirmed by the studio). We have two art studios within our 2600 sq. foot venue that is conveniently located off Main Street and close to all major highways.
Deposits are refunded the first business day after the event, if the minimum headcount was met. If the minimum headcount was not met, the empty seats to meet the required minimum are deducted from the deposit. The remainder of the deposit will then be refunded, as applicable.
A host may also elect to apply the deposit, partially or in full, to other party charges or individual seats. EX) Maybe each guest is paying for their own paint seats but the host wants to apply their deposit towards the bar tab..
A private party may be canceled with deposit refunded, or rescheduled with full deposit applied, with at least 10 business days' notice (Monday-Friday) before the originally scheduled event date. Thank you.
We want your event to be fun, organized and effortless. We provide you with all the supplies needed for a party, including our helpful artist(s) to host and guide your guests through the event and a bartender. Also:

In-studio parties will have an entire room to themselves, with plenty of space for all guests. The Bay Shore studio has high-ceilings with plenty of space to spread out and even flaunt a few dance moves...
Canvases, brushes, paints, palettes, aprons and all supplies needed to finish your masterpiece. We also have a designated area to keep purses and coats. And areas for catering or snacks.

Food And Drinks
You are always welcome to bring snacks into our venue. Wanting more? Ask to have our catering packages emailed your way!
Unless you've worked out other arrangements with us, doors will open 30 minutes before painting starts. This gives guests time to arrive, settle in and socialize, and gives the host time to set up food or other items for the party.
Please provide the name of your desired painting or tell us your top two favorites and we can help you decide on the best choice for your guests. Kids do just as well as the adults, but for some of the younger kids we may start out with a chalk trace for them.
You don't have to decide on your painting selections in order to book an event..it is most important to lock in your desired date and time but the final selection must be confirmed with the studio at least two weeks before your event date.
