How much is each event?
Painting events range anywhere from $30 – $45 dollars depending on the event. If you would like more information please view our Calendar page.
What should I expect?
Expect to have a fun relaxing time! Once the event begins, you will be guided on how to paint the painting of the evening step by step. When all is said and done, you will be amazed at what YOU created, not to mention all the fun you had in the process. And being with a loved one, friend or family makes the night even better!
Do I need to bring anything?
Just yourself and the BYOB of your choosing! We provide the aprons, paint, brushes, canvas and of course the instruction. You can also bring snacks in case you get the munchies.
What should I wear?
There is no dress code here so come however you choose! We do provide aprons but keep in mind, that paint can splatter and must be removed while it is still wet.
What is your cancellation policy?
We allow cancellations and reschedules with at least 48 hours notice prior to the event. Cancellations should be made via email or phone. We are unable to provide refunds cancelled within 48 hours of the event.

There is no parking lot, however, you can park along the street in the surrounding residential area. Our entrance is on Ocean Ave.
When do I need to arrive?
We suggest you arrive at least 15 minutes before the event to get settled in and mingle. Our instruction starts on time so please be sure to plan accordingly.
Is there reserved seating?
There is no reserved seating. If you plan on attending with others and would like to sit together please come early!
I don't have any artistic talent will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! And don’t worry most people haven’t picked up a paintbrush since elementary school. You will have individual help every step of the way!
When does the next calendar get posted?
We do our very best to fill in the Calendar with events at least 1 month in advance giving you plenty of time to plan ahead with friends and family.
If an event is Sold Out, do you have a waiting list?
Yes! If you try to register for an event that has been sold out, it will ask you if you would like to be placed on the waiting list. If you are called due to someone else’s cancellation, we will give you as much notice as possible.
Is there an age limit for any of the events?
The only age limits required are 21 years of age if you plan to drink and for Children’s events, we suggest children ages 6 and older.
How do you differ from other Paint Party Studios?
In order to answer that, we invite you to come and see for yourself! We have taken great pride in designing our studio to make your experience a fun and memorable one. Our paintings are one of a kind and you’ll be proud to hang them up in your home/office or maybe even sell them on Etsy 😉
What is included in the price for the Children's Birthday Party?
For Children’s events we supply the canvas, aprons, paint, brushes, fun music and of course the instruction. As for the party favors, each child will take home their very own painting on an 11” X 14” canvas. Each Birthday child can choose the painting of their choice for the party. If they would like something custom made, there will be an extra charge for that from between $75 – $100 dollars depending on the complexity of the painting. If you would like more detailed information, please visit our Private Parties page or give us a call at 510-685-3712.
