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 try to post the next month's calendar around the 10th 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 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. We use professional grade acrylic paint, so if it dries on your clothes, it will most likely be permanent. Keep this in mind when choosing your outfit.
Can I bring something other than wine? Will there be something cold to put white wine in?
Yes, we are a BYOB art entertainment studio. You can bring wine, beer, or any other beverage to Pinot's Palette. There will be a large ice bucket to put wine/beer during the class. We do expect all painters to be responsible with alcohol on and off the premises.o
