How It Works
How To Book
Private events are booked by placing a refundable deposit to secure your desired date and time (after availability is confirmed by the studio).
Deposits are refunded the first business day after the event, if the minimum headcount was met. If the minimum headcount wasn't met, empty seats up to the minimum are deducted from the deposit. The remainder of the deposit will then be refunded, as applicable. You may use your deposit on the day of the event to make any purchase you like, from seats to suds! We can also refund your deposit after twelve guests have prepaid.
A host may also elect to apply the deposit, partially or in full, to other party charges or individual seats.
A private party may be rescheduled with full deposit applied, with at least 16 business days' notice (Monday-Friday) before the originally scheduled event date. Adults: Minimum of 12 painters at $40 per painter. This is the same price per person as our public events! $75 Room Fee at 3pm or later, but this is waived if you have 15 or more. Ask about our small-party pricing for 10 or fewer painters!
We want your event to be fun, organized and effortless. We provide you with all the supplies needed for a party, including our helpful artist(s) to host and guide your guests through the event. We include the venue, music cultivated for a great time, plain paper plates, napkins and utensils and complimentary bottled dispenser water. There is a bar onsite where you may purchase wine, beer and specialty cocktails.
Private Party Room
In-studio parties will have an entire room to themselves, with plenty of space for all guests. You're welcome to bring food & decorations. We'll schedule an event any time we don't have something already on the schedule. Don't have enough people for a private event? Join a public class instead!
Canvases, brushes, paints, palettes, aprons and anything else needed to finish a masterpiece. We also have a designated area to keep purses and coats.
Our instructors are professional artists themselves, and they are well-trained in making the painting process simple and enjoyable for painters of all skill levels. They will also keep the energy up and the painters engaged. They are as much artists as entertainers. Everyone gets step-by-step instructions at a comfortable pace.
Ice, Ice Buckets, Water
Our studio is equipped with ice & ice buckets to make it easier to keep drinks & food at the right temperature. We have a fully stocked bar of reasonably-priced beverages onsite for all your adult-beverage needs. Our menu here includes tax: https://www.pinotspalette.com/stamford/blog/pinot-state-of-mind/bar-menu Complimentary bottled dispenser water is available for all guests. You'll also have counter space available.
We provide real glassware for all guests. No need to go out and buy disposable cups! We have plain paper plates, napkins and utensils onsite for your use as well. We do have a BYOB option, with a $15 per bottle corkage fee. This applies to bottles of wine & alcohol. BYOB beer/seltzer not permitted. Otherwise, we have very reasonable bar prices.
We'll have an amped-up crowd-pleasing playlist ready for you. Or, you can tell us what sort of music you'd like for your event and we'll tailor a playlist to your needs. And don't worry – we make sure the music doesn't get in the way of hearing the artist's instructions.
Food And Drinks
When it comes to food, you are welcome to bring whatever food that you would like, whether it’s homemade, potluck, or catered in! We even have some preferred local caterers (some right here in Stamford) that can provide food for your event. We have plain paper plates, napkins and utensils here on site if you’d like to use those.
Adult parties include 30 minutes of studio time both before & after your painting, at no additional charge. You may use this time to give guests time to arrive, settle in and socialize, or use it for the planner to set up food/decorations. There are a minimum of 12 painters at $40 per painter. With fewer than 15 painters after 3pm, there's an additional $75 room fee. Have 10 or fewer painters? You can pay a fee of $475 and up to 10 people can paint!
You can select from thousands of original paintings! We'll send you the online library, and just let us know what you'd like to paint. You'll be able to showcase your selected masterpiece to your guests through our online Party Planner system, send them the details and track their RSVPs! It's out-of-the-box party planning at its finest!
You don't have to choose a painting in order to book an event, but the final selection must be confirmed with the studio at least two weeks before your event date.
Our painting library is huge! You can sort by category, popularity and style. If you need assistance choosing the right painting for your group, just get in touch with us. We've hosted quite a few events and can help you narrow it down.
