Frequently Asked Questions
When is the studio open?
We are open from 11am-3pm for business hours M-F (except major holidays). Classes are held throughout the week from 11am-10pm. View our class calendar to find out more!
I have never attended a paint and sip class before. How does it work?
A public class features a masterpiece selected by the studio. You can register one (1) to 42 painters. This painting is indicated on our calendar by a picture of the painting. The class will be open to anyone. A private party is a private paint party where the day and time (based on availability) in addition to the painting is chosen by the host. The private party is open to invitees only.
I don’t have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting and will ensure that you stay on track to complete your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making mistakes easy to fix and perfect.
