Q) When does the next calendar get posted?

We try to post the next month's calendar around the 15th of the current month. If you'd like to receive an email each month when our new calendar is posted, be sure to sign up to receive our VIP Newsletter.

Q) Is there an age limit for the normal public classes?

All ages are welcome at our public classes before 6 PM. Because alcohol is consumed at our evening classes, we require that all painters attending classes after 6 PM be 16 or older. You must be 21+ to consume alcoholic at the studio.

Q) What should I wear to the class?

No dress code here...dress casual or dress up! We will provide you with an apron to protect your clothing, but painters have been known to get involved in their work, so be sure to wear something you don't mind getting paint on.

Q) What days are classes held?

Classes are held on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, as well as Sunday afternoons. We occasionally offer classes on other nights of the week & during afternoons – view our class calendar to find out more!

Q) 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 if you have trouble completing your order and we will walk you through the process.

Q) Can my friends or family come to the studio if they are not painting?

Due to limited space and our beer/wine license restrictions, only paid guests will be allowed in the studio during public classes. Non-painters will not be permitted to attend class as “observer’s only”.

Q) 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).

Q) I don’t have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?

Absolutely! Our artists 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.

Q) Can I bring something other than wine? Will there be something cold to put white wine in?

You can bring champagne, wine, beer or any other non-alcoholic beverage you wish to enjoy at Pinot's Palette. Any other alcoholic beverage is strictly prohibited and cannot be allowed in the studio. There will be a large ice bucket to put your beverages in during the class. We do expect all painters to be responsible with alcohol consumption on and off the premises.

Q) What is the cancellation policy?

Our Cancellation/Reschedule policy was created to best serve all of our guests: Due to the custom nature of ALL of our classes, NO REFUNDS will be issued for reservations! However, if you cancel with at least 48 hours’ notice {7 business days’ notice is required for cancellation of private event reservations} your payment will be turned into a store credit that can ONLY be used for a future class. Please email us {Oldsmar@pinotspalette.com} to cancel. If you no-show for a class that you have a spot reserved, or don't give at least 48 hours’ notice, you forfeit your reservation payment. This cancellation policy applies to parties of 2 or fewer. For cancellation of a party of 3 or more, a minimum of 72 hours' notice is required to reschedule for another class. Project Pet classes require 10 business days (M-F) notice. By completing the check-out process you agree to this policy.
