Class FAQs

What is the cost of a class?

What time does the class start?

It says doors open 30 minutes beforehand - do I need to get there that early?

Can I reserve seats for our entire group?

Most classes are $38pp for adults but you can find the exact cost when you select an image from the calendar under Upcoming Classes.

Again, most start at 7:15pm, but that’s not always the case, so to find the exact time click on Upcoming Calendar.

No. We open the door 30 minutes early to allow people extra time to socialize and get situated. When we have large classes (which you'll recognize by a low “Seats Remaining” number on the registration page or if it’s sold out), we recommend arriving right after the doors open because seating is first come first serve.

Yes and no. We allow you to reserve seats for your entire group as long as they all arrive by the time class starts. At that time, we will ask that you give up any empty spots you’ve reserved to accommodate people who are at the studio.

What To Expect At The Studio

What supplies do you provide for class?

What should I wear?

What type of beverage can I bring to drink? 

Do you have wine openers and cups, and can I bring food?

We supply everything you need for a class but the bubbly: a canvas, acrylic paint, brushes, smocks, aprons, etc.  If we offer a special class, we will indicate if you need to bring additional supplies in the class description.


We provide knee-length aprons, but since paint can damage your clothing, we think it's best to wear something you wouldn't mind with an additional color or two.

We are a BYOB, so you can bring any type of beverage that you like, as long as you can verify your age. We also have a complimentary water cooler and soda for sale.

For your convenience, we do have wine and bottle openers as well as cups and glasses.  Snacks are welcome, but the space is limited to the area around your canvas.


Do I need to sign up in advance?

When is the new schedule released?  

What happens if the weather is bad on the night I am scheduled to paint?

I missed a painting that I really want to create.  How often will you repeat paintings?

Yes. We have limited seating and want our artists to concentrate on what they do best. So, to make their life easier, we make sure they know exactly how many people they’ll be leading ahead of time.

We post the schedule six weeks in advance. Join our email list to get a sneak peek of the monthly calendar via email a few days before the online posting.

The studio will be open if classes are scheduled. We will contact everyone on the list via e-mail and/or phone you provide if we need to close the studio, and we will post all closings on the home page of the website. If we close the studio due to inclement weather, you will not be charged for class.

If you let us know, we will keep this in mind when scheduling the next month’s painting roster!

Company Policies

What is your cancellation policy? 

What time do I need to arrive for a class? 

What is the age requirement for class?

Are we required to tip the instructor?

We limit the number of painters for our classes because of the size of the studio, and we want to create the best experience for our guests. If you have signed up for one of our classes, and you cannot attend for any reason, you will be granted a full refund as long as you notify us at least 48 hours before the start of the class. That will give us a chance to contact other interested guests who may be able to attend in your place.

In the event that you need to cancel, reschedule, or modify a class registration on notice of less than 48 hours (but not less than 6 hours), we cannot refund your money, but we will issue you a voucher for a future class without penalty. If you cancel, reschedule, or modify less than 6 hours before the start of the class, or if you fail to attend without notice, then your credit card will be charged as we are unable to replace you with other guests.

We open the doors 30 minutes before class. We recommend getting there at least 10 minutes early to get acclimated before the fun starts! Arriving late to class can disrupt the flow of instruction and limits how much fun you'll have, so if you arrive after the start time, we will ask you to reschedule.

Social Painting classes and Open Studio are for big kids. That being said, we understand that many families have aspiring artists under their roof, so children under 18 are kindly asked to be accompanied by an adult if attending a Tipsy Painting class. Young Monets can also check out our Tipsy Kids classes.

Although it is by no means necessary, if you feel that you would like to tip one of our artists at Tipsy Paint, they greatly appreciate recognizing their hard work.
