Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a class cost?
Classes are 2 or 3 hours and cost $35 or $45 per painter, respectively. Follow us on Facebook to hear about special offers! Specialty classes such as Paint Your Pet or Barrel Head classes are priced differently than regular events.
When do I need to arrive for my event?
Doors open 30 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to get settled in and mingle before the painting starts.
Is there reserved seating?
Yes, we have your easel set up for you at your spot before you arrive for class. If you have friends attending the class that you’d like to sit by, you can let us know when you book the class or you can send us an email (…just make sure to give us at least 24 hours notice).
What is the cancellation policy?
Pinot's cancellation policy is as follows: A full refund can occur if notification of cancellation occurs at least 48 hours before class starts. You 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 starts. Except in extreme cases, loss of payment will occur if notification occurs less than 24 hours prior to class start. You may transfer your reservation to another person; just call the studio at 859-245-0004 to inform us of their name. No call/no shows and cancellations the day of class, regardless of reason, will NOT be refunded. No exceptions will be made to this policy. As explained in all of our correspondence to customers, NO REFUNDS will be given for reservations made for underage persons who are not approved to attend by the ABC prior to class (this does not apply to all ages classes). 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 2 days to reschedule.
What should I bring to class?
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.
When does the next month's calendar of events 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.
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?
No one under the age of 21 will be permitted unless prior arrangements have been made with the studio. This includes infants in arms!
Can I bring my own wine or drinks?
No- Kentucky law prohibits BYOB, but we have a full bar for your enjoyment!
Are drinks included in the cost of my class?
Just like other entertainment venues, drinks are additional. The Kentucky ABC prohibits any establishment to give away alcoholic beverages for free. We do provide water & free popcorn!
Do you offer classes for kids?
Yes! We offer 1-2 "all ages" classes per month. No alcohol is served during all ages classes!
If conditions require us to cancel a class, refunds will be given. If you decide not to come to class due to weather, we'll be happy to offer you a credit to come another time.
