Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
We are on Central Ave, east of 16th street across from the Tropicana Field. Next to Ferg's Sports Bar.
Can I bring my own wine and food?
Unfortunately you can not bring in alcohol. We do have a Wine & Beer Bar with amazing selections to choose from! You may bring in any snacks or food you like.
When do I need to arrive for class?
We recommend you arrive 15 to 20 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to get settled in and mingle before the painting starts.
Do you have parking?
There are public parking lots along Central Avenue. We discourage parking in the 2-hour spots in front of the studio as you may be ticketed if you stay longer than 2 hours. There is a public parking lot across from Hawkers on Central; during Rays games and certain community events there may be a fee to park.
