Kid’s & Family Parties

Our kid's parties are great for kids ages 6 and up – younger children should be with a parent. These parties are family-friendly. Parents can paint along with their children for a fun family experience. These sessions come with complementary hot chocolate and cookies!

Adult's Parties / Paint Nights

In these sessions we paint with more detail than the kid's paintings but it remains fun and easy for anyone to follow!

Adult parties are BYOB – Just beer or wine please.

Teens may join these parties as well if with an adult. Parents may use their own judgement about whether their teen can complete the painting.

Private Parties

We offer private painting parties which are perfect for Birthdays, Bridal Parties/Showers, Bachelorette Parties, Office Parties, & More! These events must be scheduled in advance. Our birthday parties include cake / cup cakes, balloons, etc. You may choose a painting from our other scheduled classes or provide your own reference photo. We have between 30 and 60 seats depending on the format of our painting.

Private parties require a non-refundable $245 deposit in order to reserve a date. Date should be arranged prior to your deposit. This deposit will be deducted from the total event cost.

Our painting parties make great fund-raising events!

Fundraiser parties are $35 per painter. We do some advertising of our own but it is strongly recommended that the event coordinator do additional advertising. Our fund raiser events require a non-refundable $245 deposit to reserve the event date.

Painters will enjoy a great time and a percentage of proceeds go to the cause! The amount donated varies depending on the number of painters. Please see below:


Classics Night

Once a month we paint simplified versions of famous historical paintings from well known artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet & more. It is a lot of fun and always makes a great piece to hang on the wall!
