Frequently Asked Questions
What is a paint & sip?
Paint and sip events combine social drinking with painting. Our paint and sip studio offers wine and beer; everyone gets a canvas and follows an artist’s instructions to recreate the featured painting on their own canvas. Paint and sip is not a serious art course - it’s about socializing and having fun.
Do I need to know anything about art?
Not at all. Our artist provide easy, step by step instructions to help everyone produce a great finished product.
This is my first time; what should I expect?
Expect a relaxed, fun atmosphere - there’s no pressure to be Van Gogh! We provide everything, including aprons to protect your clothes and a paint free space for your purse or coat.
Can I show up late?
Painting starts promptly, so you will have to catch up if you arrive late.
Can I show up early?
Please do! Most guests arrive 15-20 minutes early to get settled and start on their first drink.
How do I sign up for class?
Signing up is easy. 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 Painting to Cart." Follow the on-screen directions to complete the order. Contact us if you have trouble completing your order and we will walk you through the process.
Can I just come in and paint whenever?
Sorry, our studio is only open during scheduled events.
Yikes, what if I need to cancel?
Pinot's Palette cancellation policy is as follows: 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.
What happens if a class is cancelled due to bad weather?
You’ll receive a class credit for any cancelled classes, redeemable at the same studio.
What is Open Studio?
At Open Studio events, you get all the supplies needed to paint, but there is no featured painting. You can choose an image from our painting library, or paint whatever you want. There’s no formal instruction, but artists are on hand to help.
What is a Date Night painting?
You and your date will paint separate canvases; when placed together, your canvases will match up to create one finished piece of art!
Can I get a discount?
