Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up for a 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 at (913) 732-3768 if you have trouble completing your order and we will walk you through the process.
What is the cancellation policy?
Due to the custom nature of all of our classes, ALL reservation sales are FINAL. However, if you need to change your reservation with more than 48 hours notice to your class, we can put your reservation on hold and it can used for a future class, or transfer you into another class. If you need to change your reservation with less that 48 hours but more than 24 hours notice, you will be allowed to transfer to another class that we have posted on our calendar. If it is less than 24 hours notice, loss of reservation will occur. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. For all private party deposits, there is a 2 week prior notice required to cancel. If it's less than that, the deposit will be forfeited, or you can move the party with at least a weeks' notice. Every party gets one date change, if a second date change is required, deposit will be forfeited. For our Project Pet classes, once a photo is submitted, there will be no transfer of reservations. If you cannot make it to the Project Pet, you can still pick up your canvas.
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, and plastic ware.
Is there an age minimum for the normal public classes?
We do have kid's specific classes, but the normal public classes have the following requirements: 10 to 17 years old with a painting adult, or 18 years old and up. Please check our calendar for Family Day's, we allow children ages 5 and up to paint while accompanied with an adult. And also look for Mommy and Me classes on our calendar.
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 you give us at least 24 hours notice).
What days are classes held?
Classes are held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. We occasionally have classes during the day, other nights during the week, and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons-view our class calendar to find out more!
What does a class cost?
Classes that are 2 hours cost $35 per painter. Classes that are 3 hour cost $45 per painter. Please note we also have specialty and fundraising paintings that may cost different.
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 any unwanted marks easy to fix and perfect.
When does the next calendar get posted?
We try to post the next month's calendar around the 15th of every month, but sometimes the calendar will shift based on extenuating circumstances. 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, found on the homepage.
What should I wear to 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. Our paint IS NOT washable, so please keep that in mind.
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 Olathe. There will be a large ice bucket to put white wine in during class. We do expect all painters to be responsible with alcohol on and off the premises.
When do I need to arrive for class?
We recommend that you arrive 30 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to mingle and get settled in before the painting starts.
Can I bring a friend with me to just sit in and not paint?
Unfortunately due to our seating capacity we do not allow people to attend our painting classes without a reservation and painting.
What is the inclement weather policy?
We take the safety of our guests and staff seriously. We will monitor the local weather stations as well as local road updates. If we cancel any class you will be issued a 2 month class credit to our studio.
Are there room fees for private parties?
If you want extra time to Paint, Drink and Have Fun, additional time can be purchased at $50 per 30 minutes. If your group happens to go over the allotted time, $50 per 30 minutes will come out of the deposit.
