HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Check the calendar and choose a painting that strikes your fancy.  Check back often, as we will be adding new paintings regularly and repeating the tried and true favorites. If you don’t see one you love, book a spot anyway – you can always do your own thing once you’re here.
  2. Complete an online reservation.  All seats are pre-booked.  We may occasionally allow walk-ins if space allows, but can’t guarantee it.  We also reserve the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment.
  3. If planning a night with friends, let us know and we will do our best to seat you together.
  4. Show up!  We will provide all the materials you need to create your masterpiece.  Our artists will guide you every step of the way.  No talent or experience is required.
  5. Don’t worry about dinner.  We offer small plates and desserts for sale as well as beer and wine to round out the perfect night.
  6. Enjoy and tell your friends!  Check back often for loyalty programs and promotions.
