Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring food? What type of food?
Food is welcome but please keep in mind that space is limited, so snack and finger foods are best for our public classes.

Signing up is easy. Click the "Event Calendar" link on the top 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.
Is there an age limit for public classes?
Yes, we are a BYOB art entertainment studio. We do have kid’s specific classes, but the normal public classes have the following requirements: -13 to 17 years old with an adult -18 years old and up
Can I bring something other than wine? Will there be something cold to put white wine in?
You can bring wine, beer, or liquor to Pinot's Palette. There will be a large ice bucket to put white wine in during the class. We do expect all painters to be responsible with alcohol on and off the premises.
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.
When does next month's calendar get published?
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.
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 mistakes easy to fix and perfect.
What do I need to bring to the class?
We provide the canvas, easel, brushes, paints, and apron for the class. All you need to bring are any drinks and/or appetizers you might want to enjoy! We also provide the wine glasses, corkscrews, ice & ice buckets, paper plates, napkins, plasticware, and complimentary bottled water.
What is your cancellation policy for public classes?
Pinot's Palette cancellation policy is as follows: A full refund or class credit can occur if notification of cancellation occurs at least 48 hours before class start. Loss of payment will occur if no notification of cancellation occurs or if notification occurs less than 48 hours prior to class start.
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).
When do I arrive for class?
We recommend you arrive 30 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to get settled in and mingle before the painting starts.
What is the class cost?
Unless a class is a specialty class, our 2 hour classes start at $35 and 3 hour at $45.
What days are classes held?
Classes are held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. We also occasionally have classes on other nights during the week & on Saturday & Sunday afternoons – view our class calendar to find out more!
Are observers allowed in class?
No. We frequently sell out and need to account for all of our seats.
Are you a formal art class?
Our class motto is Paint. Drink. Have Fun.! We are a fun evening out that happens to include painting.
