How do I reserve and pay for my private party?

  • The host of the party secures a reservation by making a $250 refundable credit card deposit 14 days in advance of the date of the event. All seats must be paid separately from the deposit. If the minimum seat requirement is not met for the party through attendance, the balance will be taken from the host's deposit to meet the minimum. Please see the cancellation policy below to see how that may affect your deposit.
  • Once the private party has been booked and the painting is selected, the host will receive a passcode to distribute to guests. Hosts can also email or print custom invitations. Guests can then go online and individually pay and register for the private party, or the host may pay for the entire party.
  • Any party exceeding the scheduled end time is subject to a service charge of $50.00 and an additional $50.00 for each additional half hour over the party end time. Please note the host is responsible for ensuring guests arrive and leave on time as the painting will begin and end promptly as scheduled. Party extensions are based on availability and management discretion.

Cancellation Policy

If the host cancels the party or changes the date with less than 14 days notice, we will deduct $150 from the host's $250 deposit. If the host cancels the party or changes the date with less than 7 days notice, the host forfeits the entire $250 deposit. If the minimum seat requirement is not met for the party two weeks in advance, the host will have the option to pay for the remaining seats to meet the minimum or the party may be cancelled at management's discretion.

Additional Information for Kid Parties

Host a unique party for your child's birthday, scout troop, sports team, or dance class or maybe just as a reward for an excellent report card!
