  • Do you know of any venues that accepts private painting parties?
    Participating Venues: (In-Person Paint Parties) If you need a venue for your party, you can contact local restaurants, cafes, breweries, wineries, etc. to inquire about their policies on painting parties. To start with, we have worked with the following venues: Mimi's Cafe, El Torito's, Sagebrush, Coral Tree Cafe, Hand Brewed Brewery, and many others. To use their private room or semi-private "Paint & Sip" section, there may or may not be a minimum purchase for food & drinks. Please contact the venues for details.

  • How far in advance can we book you?
    You can always view our availabilities and book us directly from the website. The cut off is four (4) months ahead to date.
  • Where can we have a party?
    You can have the party anywhere as long as there are easy access to water and as long as it's not windy. You can have it at any participating restaurants, breweries, wineries, recreational areas, etc. QUICK TIP: If you’re having an outdoor venue on a hot day, be sure to have your painting party under a shaded area. Keep in mind that it will get dark in the evening, and it can be harder to paint without proper lighting. If indoors, be sure to have a large space with plenty of room for everyone to move around.
  • When should I tell my guest to arrive?
    We highly recommend having your guests arrive at least half an hour earlier before the painting session - just to make sure they are settled in by the time our Art Instructor starts. Your guests’ timely appearances are much appreciated to ensure a fun and exciting experience. If you have already sent your invitation with the time you booked us for, please let us know to change your session 15-30 minutes later than your original booking time.
  • What should we wear at painting parties?
    Remind your participating guests to keep their favorite or fancy attire stain-free! Although we provide aprons, attendees should still wear painting party-worthy clothing.
  • How big of a table should we have?
    A 6 foot folding table can fit about 5-6 participants by itself. With multiple, and when placed side to side horizontally, we can fit more. For instance, two - 6 foot tables, side by side can fit 12 small kids, and 10 adults. See examples below. Settings for adults To see more studio set-ups, click here.

    For In-Person Paint Parties, we arrive between half an hour to an hour before the painting session. We will set up your venue like an art studio. Please keep your tables clear of any items so we can set up the art materials for each participant. We bring white rectangular plastic table covers. However, feel free to provide your own table covering to match your party theme. Click here to see examples of our set-up. Cleaning-up: We will need about 15 minutes or so to clean up after the session. The approximate time we will be at the venue is around 3 to 4 hours (longer if you have 20 or more guests). The total time we will be at your venue would be around 3 - 4 hours (additional hour(s) may occur with a party of 25+).
  • Can we decorate for our themed party?
    Definitely! In fact, it's highly recommended for a Social Media worthy moment. However, please clear-up space comfortable enough for all your guests. Leave the tables item free so that we can quickly put the art material sets for each participant. (Add photos of settings here)

  • Does the paint come off?
    Yes & no - depending on the surface and/or fabric. We recommend washing the paint off within a minute of contact. Nonporous surfaces are more likely to resist wet paint. However, if not cleaned up right away, result of staining could be permanent. We advise for all participants to wear appropriate painting attire. We use water-based and non-toxic acrylic paints. They are known to stain fabrics permanently. It's recommended for you and your guests to hold off on wearing fancy clothing for these type of events.
