Depends. It’s $35 per person (+tax) for a 2-hour class. It’s $45 per person (+tax) for a 3-hour class. Paint Your Pet classes are $60 per person (+tax). We have walk-in options – those classes are $25+tax and you’ll have a variety of paintings to choose from to paint. This is more like an open studio, where there’s an artist to help you, but there’s no instruction like a class.
Yes! We found out that it reduces the anxiety that many people have coming into the studio. It’s very rare that any artist free hands a painting. Most do a light sketch on the canvas as a guide. That’s what we do for you. Giving you this little head start makes it easier for you to socialize and relax while you are here. And isn’t that the whole idea?
The doors will open 30 minutes prior to scheduled class time. We suggest that you arrive about 15-20 minutes before class begins to allow for “settling in” time (opening wine, using the rest room, mingling with friends). If you are more than 45 minutes late, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to finish and will be given a “to go” kit.
The answer is yes! We are BYOB. You can bring wine, beer and other libations. We always have a large tub of ice to keep things cold as well. We also have cups, corkscrews, napkins on hand.
Not only can you bring wine, etc, but you can bring snacks as well. We have seen it all from cheese and crackers, chips and salsa, sushi, pizza and other take out foods.
We’re not painting a house, we are creating a masterpiece! Wear something that you are comfortable in (not your Sunday best). We supply aprons for protection against water-based acrylic paint that we use. These paints become water-resistant when they dry.
No. Our policy is one painter per canvas.
No, sorry. This is a “hands-on” activity and our classes are usually at capacity so there is not room for spectators along with painting customers.
Usually. Most of our classes are set up for everyone to paint the same picture. We do this for your benefit, so we can guide you through the process. This doesn’t mean you have to all do it the same way. We encourage you to make it your own. Everyone begins with the same pre-sketched canvas and they all turn out differently. It’s not paint by numbers – we don’t tell you what colors to use! You can embellish your painting any way you’d like.
Every once in a while we offer more than one painting in a session (i.e. Holiday Grab Bag). So when this happens, it’s another opportunity for you you to do your own thing.
If you sign up for a couples painting (which are clearly marked) you will be each be painting one half of the same painting. On a Family Fun Day you can choose from a few different paintings.
Yes! We do them for a flat rate of $300 and you can invite 12 guests. Each guest over the 12 included in the package, there is an additional $20 charge. Limit 18. This rate is for kids 15 and under. If adults would like to participate, our usual 2-hour rate of $35 applies. We recommend ages 6 and older for painting.
For a private party we must have a guarantee of 10 guests or a minimum of $350. We can do private parties at all of our locations- call for availabilities. Gift certificates may not be used for private parties. We can always accommodate groups into our regular classes. Just let us know who’s in your group and we will have you seated together. We will need 10 days notice if you have to cancel for some reason. If you cancel and it is less than 10 days, you’ll be charged a cancellation fee of $350.
If a class is full you will see the “Join Waiting List” option. Click on this to add the class to your shopping cart and check out. You won’t be charged anything and you will now be on the waiting list. If a seat becomes available, you will be notified via email and have the option to register at that time. Being on a waiting list doesn’t automatically register you for a class, it just emails you if and when a seat opens up. Everyone on the waiting list gets the same notification at the same time, and has the same opportunity to register for the class. So you need to act fast to secure the open seat.
If it’s a class that says “all ages” then it’s fine. Otherwise, our policy is no children under 15 in the evening classes. And those 15-21 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Well, the idea is that you are copying a painting…so we thought “Monkey See, Monkey Do.” Add paint to that and you have yourself a Paint Monkey.

If we are there and the class is still being held – and you can’t make it, because of bad weather – we will give you a class credit that will be good for 30 days only – No exceptions. If we have to cancel the class – we will offer you a choice of a full refund or a class credit.
We can’t stress this enough! Please try to be on time. The doors will open 30 minutes prior to scheduled class time. We suggest that you arrive about 15-20 minutes before class begins to allow for “settling in” time (opening wine, using the rest room, mingling with friends).
There is no such thing as “fashionably late” here at Paint Monkey. We can usually catch you up if you are just a few minutes late.
Important note: If you are more than 40 minutes late, you will be considered a “no show.” There is no refund for a “no show” and it will be too late for you to begin painting. Try to be on time!
