We'll try our best to keep you together. Please arrive early to pick out your seats. If you have a large party, you can contact us in advance to inquire about seating arrangements for your group.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothes for sitting. Aprons will be provided. Paint can be washed out of most fabrics before it dries, but wear something that you're okay with getting stained, just in case.
Can I bring children?
Yes, children are welcome to attend our daytime classes (evening classes are open to ages 18 and up). The recommended age is 8 and up, but this depends on the child. The class requires the ability to sit and paint for two hours, so this is really up to the parents to determine.

No refund will be issued if you choose to cancel. However, if you contact us at least 2 hours prior to the beginning of class, we'll give you credit to sign up for a future class. No refunds or credits for no show.
Why is my class canceled?
We may cancel a class that has received less than 4 bookings. Inclement weather may force us to cancel, as well. If we have canceled your class, you'll be notified and a full refund will be issued.
