What are the restrictions for the ALL AGES WELCOME classes?
All ages are welcome - but children under 12 must be accompanied by a paying/painting adult.
What do I need to bring with me to class?
Until the City and State mask mandate has expired, please wear a mask. And bring your sense of fun and adventure! We supply all the art supplies, ice, glasses, and a smock to protect your clothing.
Can I bring my own snacks & drinks?
Yes, we're a BYOB studio - so you can bring your own snacks and beverages of choice, including alcohol. And we're conveniently located next to Beyond Napa, a retail wine shop that also carries cold beer and a selection of spirits. We provide wine glasses, ice and beverage tubs, corkscrews, plates, napkins, utensils, and complimentary bottled water.
What should I wear to class?
There's no dress code at Pinot's Palette: What you wear is up to you. But since spills and splatters have been known to happen, we will provide you with an apron to protect your clothing.
Where should I park?
Free on-street parking is available around Old Town Square - and there's also a free multi-level, well-lit parking garage across the Square, connected to the west side of the Warren Old Town Theater.
What time should I arrive for class?
We recommend arriving 15-30 minutes before the class is scheduled to start, to allow time to get checked in, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, mingle with friends and get situated.
When will the next class calendar be posted?
We usually publish the next month's calendar by the middle of the month.
I can't even draw a stick figure: Will I be able to complete the painting?
Certainly! The artist who is instructing will lead you through the featured painting one step at a time, and we will provide assistance to make sure you can complete your own finished masterpiece.
What is the cancellation policy for public seating?
A full refund can be given if requested at least 48 hours before class, or you can put your reservation on hold to use at a later date. If you notify 24 - 48 hours before class, your reservation will be put on hold to use at a future date. No refunds or hold credits will be given for cancellations received less than 24 hours before class. For groups of 10 or more, a minimum of one week's notice is required to receive a full refund.
