We do have kid’s specific classes, but the normal public classes have the following requirements: 13 to 17 years old with an adult at our 3:00 pm, 4: 30 pm and 7:00 pm classes - Must be 21 to purchase alcohol. Check our calendar for Family Day and kids classes where the age requirement is seven and up. We recommend five and up for our Open Studio Events.
If I don't have 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.
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 (…please try to give us at least 24 hours notice).
What should I wear to the 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.
When do I need to 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.
