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 to Cart." Follow the on-screen directions to complete the order. Contact us if you have trouble completing your order and we will walk you through the process.

When do I need to arrive for 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.

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).

What is the cancellation policy?

Pinot's Palette cancellation policy is as follows: A full refund can occur if notification of cancellation occurs at least 48 hours before class start. You can also have the option to put the reservation on hold for a later date or transfer the reservation to another class. The reservation can be put on hold or transferred to another class if notification is received at least 24 hours before class start. Loss of payment will occur if no notification of cancellation occurs or if notification occurs less than 24 hours prior to class start. This cancellation policy applies to parties of 2 or less. For cancellation of a party of 3 or more, a minimum of one week's notice is required for a refund or to reschedule.

What do I need to bring to the class?

We have a spectacular selection of beer, wine and signature cocktails available for purchase along with many non-alcoholic beverages, including soda, juice, coffee, tea and bottled water. We provide the canvas, easel, brushes, paints and apron for the class. All you need to bring is your friends and a 'have fun' attitude! You are welcome to bring in your own food or we can assist you with catering options.

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 completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making mistakes easy to fix and perfect.

When does the next calendar get posted?

We try to post the next month's calendar around the 15th of the month. If you'd like to receive an email each month when our new calendar is posted, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.

What should I wear to the 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.
