We recommend getting there 10 to 15 minutes early to get registered and settled in. We typically start the class once everyone has arrived and gotten their paint supplies, which could be 10-15 minutes after our advertised start when we have a sold out class. During this time, you can find your seat, enjoy a drink & light snacks from our bar and imagine your painting and how you might make it unique to you and your style. (ie. do you want to modify the colors in any way?)
We do NOT offer refunds, however if 24 hours notice is given, you may receive a store credit.  Failure to give 24 hours notice will result in the forfeiture of your registration fee.  *In cases of extreme weather and we decide to close or we have to cancel a class, you will receive a choice of a store credit or a refund.*
Most of our painting classes are for adults, age 18 and older. However we offer painting classes for kids age 7 and up, and host family painting events as well. These are marked as “All Ages” on our calendar and alcohol is not allowed during these class times. This is due to local liquor laws and is out of our control. Children not painting, such as babies and toddlers, may not attend any class. All kids under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
