BOOKING YOUR PRIVATE PARTY
• When you book a private party, we provide you with a talented artist/instructor who will give you and your guests step by step guidance and professional instruction. We provide paints, canvas, and all the supplies. We set up before and clean up after, and provide plenty of entertainment in between. Each painter goes home with their new masterpiece and a lot of fun memories.
• Main Studio (21+) Private Event: The minimum requirements to reserve the Main Studio for your private event are:
- 10 person minimum- all daytime events between 9am-3pm (ending no later than 6pm), $100 refundable deposit
- 10 person minimum- Monday-Wednesday evening events after 6pm, $100 reservation fee
- 20 person minimum for Thursday evening events after 6pm, $200 reservation fee
- 25 person minimum for Friday & Saturday evening events after 6pm, $300 reservation fee
- A reservation fee is required to book your party, a date will not be held without this deposit. If a pubic event is already scheduled on the date you want, but does not yet have any guests registered, that public class may be bumped for a private party, as long as the deposit is received prior to anyone registering for the scheduled public class.
*Note: Paint your Pet events are $50 per painter, these classes require extra preparation of canvases prior to the class and are limited to 10 painters at this time.
Paint party etiquette: It is customary to add a 15% gratuity for the dedicated art instructor and/ or assistants who enthusiastically serve your needs. Our talented artist instructors work to offer useful instruction, teach skills, and ensure you and your guests have a wonderful painting experience during your 2 to 3 hour event.
We are happy to accommodate last minute parties! To meet scheduling demands for our talented instructors we plan our class calendar ahead of time, therefore an expedite fee is added for all parties scheduled within 7 business days of the event. The expedite fee is paid in addition to the deposit fee, at the time of the initial reservation, and is non-refundable.
• For parties scheduled within 5-7 calendar days of the party date, a $50 non-refundable expedite fee will be added to the reservation fee.
• For party's scheduled within 1-4 calendar days of the event date, a $75 non-refundable expedite fee will be added to the reservation fee.
Private parties are listed on our online calendar. You may share the link to your private party with your guests, then they can register and pay for themselves online at their convenience. Your deposit will be refunded 1-2 business days after your event as long as the minimum number paid seats required for your Private party is met. If the minimum number is not met, the difference will come out of the deposit. One seat, (usually the host who paid the deposit) may be taken out of the deposit, with the remainder available for refund.
Our Main Studio is a 21+ Bar. Washington State is not a BYOB state, and no outside alcohol is allowed.
Our Loft Studio on the 2nd floor is an all-ages venue. If you plan to have minors at your event, the Loft is the venue you will want to book.
