Can I book a party any day and anytime?

Just your smile and any snack & beverage of your choice.  IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE WINE.

How many do I need for a private party?

You need 10 people for a private party.

The minimum for an adult party is $300.  The minimum for a kids’ party is $250.  (Adults cost $30/ea and Kids cost $25/ea).  If you get 10 people it works out to $300.  If you know you will not have 10 people we can adjust the price to hit our minimum.  (i.e.: $33 for 9 people).  We will give you the choice to  open the party 7 days before the party or we can send you an invoice for the difference.  ONCE THE PARTY HAS BEEN ‘OPENED’ WE WILL NOT CLOSE IT.

If you have at least 6 people we will create an open class. You pick the date time and painting.

The front room holds 40.  The back room holds 24.

What is the deposit for a party?

If you are paying for the entire party we will invoice you $50 for a party deposit. If you are paying individually, we will invoice you $30 to cover yourself. Your deposit holds the reservation.   One week before class if you do not have 10 people you can choose to make it an ‘open party’, reschedule or cancel.  If you cancel we will not refund the deposit.
