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 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 during the class. We also provide the wine glasses, corkscrews, ice buckets & we have plates, napkins, and silverware.
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.
When does the next calendar get posted?
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.
Is there an age limit for the normal public classes?
We do have kid’s specific classes, but the normal public classes have the following requirements: - 13 to 17 years old with an adult. - Must be 21 to consume alcohol inside the studio.
