We provide the canvas, easel, brushes, paints, and apron for the class. All you need to bring are appetizers you might want during the class. We have plates, napkins, and silverware for your use. We do not have the ability to reheat food. **Kentucky state law prohibits BYOB. We do not allow outside beverages.** Our studio features a bar where you can purchase beer, wine by the glass or the bottle, several varieties of bourbon & vodka, as well as specialty drinks.
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, but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making 'happy accidents' easy to fix and perfect.

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.
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. Don't wear anything you would be heartbroken to get paint on!
Can a minor attend if I promise he/she won't be drinking?
YES! Minors are allowed with an adult. Please keep in mind others around you may be consuming adult beverages so some language may be more advanced.
Can I bring my own wine or drinks?
No- Kentucky law prohibits BYOB (including non alcoholic drinks, tumblers and bottled water), but we have a full bar for your enjoyment!
