FAQs and Refund Policy
How do I register for a painting class?
Go to the Class Descriptions page and select the painting class you would like to attend, click on the Add to Cart button and complete the registration process to purchase your seat(s) securely online. Once we receive your registration submission, you’ll receive an automatic e-mail confirmation.
How long is the painting class?
Generally we will need 3 hours to complete our paintings from start to finish. Plan on the full 3 hours to receive all your valuable instruction.
Can I complete the painting if I have no artistic ability?
Yes! Our classes are for both the inexperienced and experienced! Many of our students have never picked up a paint brush. We take you through step by step on how to mix your paint and apply it to your canvas. And for you seasoned artists, you will have the freedom to add your own artistic flair or bring one of your paintings in process to work on. Our instructor has more than 30 years of painting as an art professional.
Should I tip the artist or artist’s assistant?
Tipping tells the instructor and assistants they did a great job!
Can I bring my own food? It depends on the venue. Please ask ahead.
We have a venue where we'd like to have you bring your classes. Are you open to this?
Yes. Let's talk. This is a great opportunity to bring more people in to your venue.
May I bring a non-painting guest to the event?
Our classes are designed for each student to have fun but focus on the class. We are generally at full capacity or have very limited seating so unfortunately we cannot allow non-participating guests to attend. Be respectful to the other paying students by not bringing any distractions to the class. (All students must be 21 and over and have a valid I.D.)
What is your refund and cancellation policy?
If a class is cancelled BY US due to weather or any other reason, you will be issued a full refund for the amount of the class or you can transfer that payment to a different class. Please remember that seats are limited and we count on your reservation and attendance. 48
Hour minimum notice to cancel attendance to a class is necessary to receive a full refund. If you can not attend a class AND give us 48 hour notice, you can switch the payment to a different class. Please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858-774-5855 to reschedule.
How does a private event work?
Events are held at your home or a venue of your choosing. We will provide all the art supplies and an instructor for the class. We use table easels which are easy to set-up where there is available tables with seating.
Private events must guarantee a minimum of 6 participants and the charge per person is $42. You or your venue supply the tables and seating. We bring the art project, table covers, and supplies.
Classes usually last 3 hours and we recommend you begin your event at least an hour prior to the class for setup and fellowship (more if you are serving a meal before the class) and add an hour or so after the 3 hour class for finishing up your event.
Do we get to choose the painting or art project for our private party?
You may select a painting from our portfolio of artwork, request a unique painting of your own choice or you can discuss options with your instructor. However, each class is designed for each of your guests to focus on producing the same piece of art.
When do you need the final headcount?
All private events require the minimum of 6 fully-paid participants. For logistical purposes, we require a final headcount no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled event.
What if I reserve an event for 6 people but only 5 attend?
You are responsible for the minimum payment of 6 guests.
Can we use your classes as a Fundraiser?
Yes. If you are a 501c3 corporation, we can work out a fundraising project for you. You will plan your own event, choose where you want to hold the event, provide your own food and wine and coordinate with our instructor on the painting you want to create. You will invite your students, pay for the amount of students you book at the discounted cost of $30 per student, turn in your headcount 48 hours prior to the class and pay up front. You can charge your guests an amount above the $30 and keep that for your fundraiser.
