How It Works
How To Book
Private events are booked by placing a refundable deposit to secure your desired date and time (after availability is confirmed by the studio).
Deposits are refunded the first business day after the event, if the minimum headcount was met. If the minimum headcount wasn't met, empty seats up to the 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.
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.
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. We include...
Private Party Room
In-studio parties for 10-18 guests are held in our Gasparilla private party room. Parties with 19+ guests are welcome to use our main studio that can accommodate up to 40 guests. Our entire studio can accommodate 58 guests.
Canvases, brushes, paints, palettes, aprons and anything else needed to finish a masterpiece. We also have a designated area to keep purses and coats.
Our instructors are professional artists themselves, and they are well-trained in making the painting process simple and enjoyable for painters of all skill levels. Everyone gets step-by-step instructions at a comfortable pace.
Ice, Ice Buckets, Bottled Water
Our studio has a bar where you can purchase Wine, Beer, and non-alcoholic beverages. We usually have a fun drink specials for your sipping pleasure! Our liquor license does not allow outside beverages. Bottled water is available for all guests. You'll also have counter space for food or gifts.
We provide real glassware for all guests. We also have a "Sippy Cup" Club where guests can purchase an insulated wine glass tumbler for $15 and it includes a glass of wine and $5 house wine refills.
We'll have a crowd-pleasing playlist ready for you. Or, you can tell us what sort of music you'd like for your event and we'll tailor a playlist to your needs. And don't worry – we make sure the music doesn't get in the way of hearing the artist's instructions.
Food And Drinks
You can bring in any food you like and we will provide plates, napkins, and plasticware. We do have sweet and salty snacks available for purchase. We have a huge selection of wines, beers and non-alcoholic beverages that you can purchase from us. Our liquor license does not allow outside beverages.
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.
You don't have to choose a painting in order to book an event, but we like to have your choice at least two weeks prior to your party so our artist has time to practice it before your event.
Our painting library is huge which gives you many options from which to choose but can be a little daunting to sort through to find the perfect one. You can narrow your search by using the filters at the top of the page.
Choosing your own painting is part of the fun but if you need any assistance, just give us a call, we are happy to help. We've hosted quite a few events and can help you narrow it down.
