What is a class like at the Parched Painter?
At the beginning of class, we’ll get you set up with everything you need for the class and seat you with your party. When the class starts, an instructor will take you step by step through the painting. You will have time to paint, relax, chat with friends, and enjoy a drink in a fun environment. Your painting will be dry enough to go home with you at the end of your session. Even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body, you will be impressed at your finished painting!
What if I want to put my own spin on the painting?
We’d love you to! We encourage all of those who feel comfortable to take liberties with their painting and make it their own!
Do I need to reserve in advance?
Space is limited for each class so signing up in advance is advised. Just go to the Calendar page to reserve your spot.
How much is a class?
All classes are $39 unless otherwise noted.
What do I wear?
We’ll provide aprons but wear something comfortable – not your Sunday best!
What time should I arrive?
We suggest arriving 10-15 minutes early to check in and get settled.
How long does class take?
Each class runs 2.5 to 3 hours depending on the complexity of the painting.
What’s your cancellation policy?
Sorry we don’t offer refunds. We’ll gladly reschedule your session for another date if you provide us with 48 hour notice by email to [email protected] .
In the case of inclement weather, please check for weather update alerts on our Facebook page. If a class must be cancelled as the result of the weather, we’ll happily move your reservation to another day. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds due to weather-related circumstances.
Do you offer food and alcoholic beverages?
We offer prepackaged snacks for purchase as well as soda and water. No alcoholic beverages are served. Guests over 21 years old are welcome to bring beer and wine.
If I come with a friend, can we sit together?
We will do our best to seat you together. However, if you have a party that would like to be seated together, please arrive early to reserve your seats.
Can I schedule a painting party for my child?
We offer private parties for groups for all occasions, including children over the age of 7! Please check out our Kids Parties page for more details.
What is your Low Class Attendance Policy?
We reserve the right to cancel any class with fewer than 10 enrollments. Upon cancellation, you will receive an e-mail informing you of the cancellation with the option to re-book another class of the same value or request a full refund. We thank you for your understanding if this situation occurs and hope you will join us for a future class.
