Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Wet Your Palettes experience like?
In a relaxed group setting, a local artist will guide you through replicating the nights featured painting step-by-step. You will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with your friends, and to meet new ones! This class is about individual expression – it is fail-proof! You will leave with your custom painting, that is uniquely yours. Classes are 2 hours long.
What exactly is the Finishing Class?
The Finishing class is for patrons who wish to bring their completed paintings back to receive more individualized instruction. Perhaps you want to enhance your painting, or maybe you didn’t finish before the session was completed. For a fee of $20, our local artist will help you to fine-tune your painting.

Adults must purchase a seat for the session until the child is 14 or over. Cupcakes are provided in these sessions and alcohol is NOT permitted.
Do I need to have experience with painting to be a success?
No experience is required! Our artists work with a step-by-step technique so that anyone can replicate the work.

What time do I need to arrive?
We suggest you arrive in the studio at least 15 minutes prior to the session start time in order to set up and grab a seat. Please allow ample time for parking. In the event that you are more than 15 minutes late for your session, you will be asked to reschedule. Reschedules of this nature can only be made the day of the originally purchased session in order to avoid seat forfeiture.
