Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up for a class?
Signing up is easy. Click the "Event Calendar" link on the top 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 509-290-5098 if you have trouble completing your order and we will be more than happy to make your reservation over the phone with a credit or debit card. We are available by phone 11-4 M-F.
What changes have you made due to Covid?
We have rearranged our tables so they are all 6 feet apart. Groups will be seated together at the same table (up to 5 people per group maximum). Masks are required due to state law and we are encouraging patrons to pre-purchase drinks on our website to reduce contact with our bartender and artist (discounts if you pre-purchase)! Employees are required to wash hands upon arrival to the studio and we are thoroughly cleaning after each class. Hand sanitizer stations are provided around the studio.
What does a class cost and what is included?
Our prices range from $30 - $45, depending on whether it's a 2, 2.5, or 3 hour painting. All classes include a 16x20" cotton canvas, use of our paint, paintbrushes, apron, easel, and step-by-step instruction provided by one of our awesome local artists. Wine and beer are also available to purchase at our bar.
Is there an age limit for your public classes?
Yes, due to state liquor laws, all guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend a class.
What is the cancellation policy?
ALL SALES ARE FINAL - Due to the custom nature of our classes, NO REFUNDS will be issued for reservations. However, if you cancel with at least 24 hours’ notice your payment will be turned into a store credit that can be used for a future class. Please email us to cancel. If you no-show, or don't give at least 24 hours’ notice, you forfeit your reservation payment and will not receive a credit.
Where should I park?
Street parking is generally wide open in front of our studio. Metered parking is free on the street after 7pm, and free on Sundays. We have a Diamond Parking lot directly behind our studio and they charge $3 from 5pm-6am, plus three other large lots nearby!
When do I need to arrive for class?
We recommend you arrive 20 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to get settled in and mingle with friends before the painting starts. Don't forget to bring your ID!
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. *Private parties do not have reserved seating.
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.
What do I need to bring to class?
We provide the canvas, easel, brushes, paints, and apron for the class. All you need to bring is your ID and any appetizers you might want during the class. We also provide the plates, napkins, and silverware. We have a fun list of local wine and beer as well as non-alcoholic beverages to choose from for purchase, and we always have complimentary bottled water for all our painters!
Can I bring a friend with me to sit and not paint?
Due to our seating capacity we do not allow people to attend our painting classes with out a reservation.
I don't have any artistic talent. Will I be able to finish 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.
How much do drinks cost?
Wine by the glass ranges from $4.59 - $7.36 (or $5-$8 including tax) and it's even cheaper to purchase by the bottle and split with friends. Microbrews are $3.67 ($4 including tax). We try to keep it as local as possible, so all of our wine and beer is from Washington state or northern Idaho. We also have a fun selection of non-alcoholic drinks to choose from!
When does the next calendar get posted?
We post new calendars on the 1st 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, or like us on Facebook to get notified there!
Do you offer private events?
Definitely! We have a private party room available and can also rent out our main room. Contact us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I bring my own beverages?
Unfortunately we are not able to allow outside beverages into our studio. We do keep our bar stocked with a selection of wine, beer, cider, and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase. You are more than welcome to bring your own food/snacks!
Can I bring my infant?
Unfortunately it is illegal for us to have minors, even babies. Please plan for childcare. :)
Are masks required?
Yes, masks are legally required in Washington state. Please wear a mask to our studio. Masks may be removed when seated at your table but must be put back on when walking around the studio (just like at restaurants). Thank you for your understanding! We do have complimentary masks available in case anyone forgets theirs.
