A. Yes! We have a ton of free parking spaces right in front of our studio for your convenience.
Q: When are classes held?
A: Our adult BYOB classes are held every night; and also on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. We regularly offer Family Paint Classes for ages 5+ on Saturday and Sunday mornings as well. On some nights, we host private parties that are not open to the public. Check the calendar for the most up to date class schedule. Private parties can be booked any day per request.
Q: How Much Do the Classes Cost?
A: $35 for a 2hr adult BYOB class and $45 for a 3hr adult BYOB class. Our family paint classes are $25. We also run promotions on some weeknights and weekend dates.
Q: How long are the Classes?
A: Classes are typically 2 or 3 hrs long. Occasionally, we will host special classes or events that will range from 1 to 4 hrs. Join our newsletter to learn about special events and classes as soon as they are announced.
Q: What can I expect?
A: We provide step-by-step instruction for the painting selected, in a relaxed atmosphere complete with great music and a cool vibe. All the painting materials needed are supplied. Just come (with something yummy to drink and snack on) ready to paint and have fun and then take your painting home while we do the cleaning up!
Q. Can I choose a different painting?
A. Our Instructor teaches the same painting to the entire class (the painting displayed on the class calendar), step by step from start to finish, but we encourage you to get creative! You don't have to paint it exactly the way the Instructor does if you don't want to! Each person is encouraged to put his/her own special touches to their painting - you change the colors in a painting or even paint something completely different with the paint provided. We don't mind!
Q: Why do I need a reservation?
A: Your reservation holds your spot in the class and gives us time to set up for you before arrival.
Q: Are Walk-ins welcome without a reservation?
Although not recommended because we do sell out of classes and we don't want you to be disappointed, if you happen to be in the area, feel free to stop in prior to the class start time and we will do our best to accommodate you. Also, it doesn't happen often, but we do reserve the right to cancel the class due to low enrollment so check the calendar prior to coming. This is another reason to please sign up early if you want to attend a specific class.
Q: Will I get to sit with my friends if we register separately?
A: We set up seating per registration and do our best to seat you and your party together. If you are registering with a group of 4 or more, you can indicate during the registration process the group you want to sit with.
Q: Myself or my partner can no longer make it. Can someone else come in my/their place?
A: Yes. Reservations hold a seat so you are welcome to subsitute if you are unable to attend as planned. There is no need to call or email to update the registration. Your/their name will be on the Guest List and so the new person will just have to give the name on the List and let us know they are attending in their place during check-in and they will be all set.
Q. Can I buy a gift certificate for another person?
Yes, you can purchase a gift certificate on our website via this link. Once you purchase the gift certificate, you will be emailed a print-ready certificate that contains a unique coupon code. The gift certificate can be redeemed on our website by using the coupon code provided. Please enter this code into the box that says 'Promotion Code' once you have selected a class and began the registration process.
Q. Do you provide the wine?
No, our classes are BYOB, please feel free to bring your drink of choice. We provide wine glasses, corkscrews and ice for your use.
Q. Do you serve food?
No, please feel free to bring your own snacks
Q: What should I wear?
A: There is no dress code, feel free to dress up or not as you wish. However, we paint with acrylic paint so wear something you wouldn't mind adding a little paint to... permanently. Don't worry, aprons are also provided.
Q: What if I’m pregnant?
A: Our acrylic paint is non-toxic, so it is safe for children and expectant mothers
Q: What time should I show up my class?
A: It's essential to show up on time for your scheduled class. Our studio will be open 15 minutes before the scheduled class time so feel free to come in early so you can check in, uncork and pour and get settled before class starts. Painting will begin right around the scheduled class time depending on the class size. Late arrivals will miss important class instruction and should not expect individual "catch up" instruction from the instructor or assistant. We cannot guarantee late arrivals will be able to catch up and there will be no extension of class time for late arrivals.
Q: When do I get to take home my painting?
A: You take it with you when you leave. The painting will be dry enough to take home right away.
Q: Do you have cork screws and glasses?
A: Yes, we supply bottle openers, cups, utensils and ice.
Q: What if I want to paint something else?
A: At any of our classes, you are more than welcome to be creative and add your own personal touches to the painting. You can also free feel to paint your own thing, we won't mind. Keep in mind however that the instructor will only be teaching the class painting and will NOT give any other instruction.
Q: How far in advance can I register for a class?
A: As soon as the calendar gets published! We will post class schedules by the middle of the prior month so you have enough time to plan. Private parties can be booked anytime, and up to one year out.
Q: When do you post the new class schedule?
A: Around the 15th of each month. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on all social media (@asipofart) so you can receive new class listings via email as soon as they are up.
Q: What is the age requirement for adult classes?
A: Our Adult Classes are intended for adult painters due to the difficulty level of the paintings and the BYOB atmosphere, but we will allow painters aged 12+ if accompanied by an adult. No one under the age of 21 can drink alcohol in our studio.
Q: Can children under 13 paint?
A: Yes! Family Classes are offered on weekends and are for all ages. We also offer private parties for the younger crowd.
