No, your reservation fee includes everything you’ll need to create a
beautiful and unique painting! When you arrive you are supplied with an apron, canvas, brushes, paints and step by step art instruction throughout the class! When class is done, your artwork is ready to take home and hang! If you are painting at a public event, beverage or food may be included (check each of our event details for more information).
How Does Seating Work?
Come early and getting settled in. Our seating is on a first come, first
served basis. So if you have a few friends that you want to sit close to while you paint, you probably want to get to the venue early so you can secure your seats and paint next to each other. Our events start promptly at the designated time.
Can you provide a location for my private event?
Yes, we have relationships with a variety of locations that we’re happy to find the spot that best suits you.
