You must notify us at least 5 hours before class to take advantage of the transfer.**

What if I don't call or show up for class?

Loss of payment will occur if no notification of cancellation occurs prior to class.

What do I need to bring to class?

We've stocked the bar with wine , beer , cider and soft drinks, and provide the canvas, easel, brushes, paints, and apron for the class. All you need to bring are your friends and a 'have fun' attitude!

I have no artistic talent, I can't even draw stick people. 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. Acrylic paint dries quickly, making mistakes easy to fix and perfect.

When is next month's calendar posted ?

We try to post the next month's calendar around the 15th of the month. If you'd like to receive an email each month when our new calendar is posted, be sure to add yourself to our email list. We also post the week's painting as well as specials on our Facebook Page so be sure to connect to us.

What should I wear to class?

No dress code here...dress casual or dress up. We will provide you with an apron but painters have been known to get involved in their work of art . Once the paint dries on your clothes it's permanent so keep that in mind.

Can I bring Wine?

No outside beverages are allowed. We have a bar where you can purchase Beer, Wine, Cider and Soft drinks. Beer starts at $3 and Wine starts at $5 a glass and $15 a bottle.

Do you provide food?

We have a light snack mix but if you are interested in anything else feel free to bring your own food- cake, appetizers etc. We provide plates, napkins and plastic ware as well as counter space for food.
