Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up for a class?

Click the "Classes" link on the side of the page to view our calendar of paintings. Select which painting you would like to paint and click "Add to Cart." Follow the on-screen directions to complete the order. Contact us at 718-554-4203 if you have trouble completing your order and we will help you.

How much does a class cost?

Weeknight & afternoon classes are 2 hours and cost $35 per painter. Friday & Saturday night classes are 3 hours and cost $45 per painter.

What time should I arrive for class?

We open the doors 30 minutes prior to class so you can come in, go to the bar & hang out with your friends before we start painting.

Is there reserved seating?

Yes, we create a seating chart to make sure you and your friends can all sit together. If there is someone you want to sit with that made a separate reservation, please tell us in the comments section of your reservation or send us an email.

What is the age requirement?

Palette offers a fun night out for adults, and our studio maintains an adult atmosphere during public classes where alcohol is consumed. For this reason, no children 12 or under will be admitted (with the exception of specifically labeled Little Brushes or Family Day classes). 13-17 year olds may attend when accompanied by a guardian, and 18+ are welcome to join our classes at their own discretion. New York law maintains that a person must be 21 and up to consume alcohol.

What do I need to bring to class?

We provide the canvas, easel, brushes, paints and apron for the class. All you need to bring are any appetizers you might want during class. We also provide the paper goods. We have a great selection of wines, beers and soda to choose from for purchase. Please note that you cannot bring your own alcohol to class.

What is the refund policy?

A full refund can occur if notification of cancellation occurs at least 48 hours before class start. You can also have the option to put the reservation on hold for a later date or transfer the reservation to another class. The reservation can be put on hold or transferred to another class if notification is received at least 24 hours before class start. Loss of payment will occur if no notification of cancellation occurs or if notification occurs less than 24 hours prior to class start. This cancellation policy applies to parties of 2 or less. For cancellation of a party of 3 or more, a minimum of one week's notice is required for a refund or to reschedule.

I don’t have any artistic talent. Will I be able to complete the painting?

YES! Our talented local artists will guide you through the painting step-by-step and help you to create your own masterpiece.

When does the next calendar get 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. Or Like us on Facebook to be notified there!

What should I wear?

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.
