Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up for a class?

Signing up is easy. Go to website and tap "register now" on the upcoming event you are interested in or the calendar image on the day you plan to attend. Follow online instructions. Contact us if you have trouble completing your order and we will walk you through the process.

What days are classes held?

We have classes everyday. Little Brushes are held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Check calendar for specific dates.

Are observers allowed?

Sorry, observers are not allowed in our regular paint sessions. Everyone pays and everyone paints. The exception is Little Brushes, parents may share a canvas with kids or watch kids paint, however seating may be limited for observers in kids classes.

What is the cancellation policy?

Pinot's Palette cancellation policy is as follows: For public classes, a full refund can occur if notification of cancellation occurs at least 24 hours before class starts. If you need to cancel on the class day the only option is to transfer to a later class and will incur a $10 rescheduling fee. No Show will result in loss of payment. Deposit's for private parties are nonrefundable. You may move the party to a different day or time if available. Project Pet classes are nonrefundable after photo's have been submitted.

What does a class cost?

2-hour classes cost $37-$40 per painter. 3-hour classes cost $45-$50 per painter. Little Brushes are $25 per painter. Project Pet is $65 per painter.

When do I need to arrive for a class?

We recommend you arrive 30 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to get settled in and mingle before the painting starts.

Can I show up late?

Painting starts promptly, so you'll have to catch up on your own if you arrive late.

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).

Are walk-ins allowed?

If we have room, we will not turn away walk-ins, however, we discourage this practice. We assign seats and base our number of assistants on our number of reservations. In addition, classes often sell-out in the last few hours. A class with seats available in the morning could easily be sold out that evening. By the same token, if a class fails to meet a minimum of painters, it will be cancelled by noon on class day. So sign up early. We have a generous cancellation policy.

What is the minimum number of painters do for a private party and what is the deposit?

A minimum of 12 paid painters is required to have a private party. The deposit is $100 and is nonrefundable. The deposit is applied to the total cost of the party.

What if I don't have enough painters for a private party?

You are welcome to join a public class, let us know the name of your group and we will do our best to seat you together.

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 are any drinks and/or appetizers you might want during the class. We also provide the wine glasses, corkscrews, ice buckets & we have plates, napkins, and silverware.

Can I bring something other than wine to drink?

You can bring wine, beer, liquor. Also non-alcoholic beverages are welcome at Pinot's Palette. There will be a large ice bucket to put beverages in during the class. We do expect all painters to be responsible with alcohol on and off the premises.

What are your studio office hours?

Studio office hours are 11am-2pm Monday-Saturday

When is your monthly calendar made public?

Our calendar generally posts a month in advance. Join our email list and receive a link each month to the new calendar.

Children 8-17 yrs. are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Children of all ages are welcome with their parents at any of our Little Brushes classes.
