Do I need a reservation?
Reservations are not required but are highly recommended in case the class is sold out. We have assigned seating such that if you don't have a reservation but your friends do, you may not be able to sit with them. If you don't have a reservation, please arrive approximately 30 minutes early so we can get you set up and settled in.
Is payment required in advance?
We take payment at the time of reservation. We do take walk-ins but we cannot guarantee we will have availability.
I don't have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting and will ensure that you stay on track to completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, only "happy accidents" but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making it easy to make your masterpiece perfect.
