We offer 2 options for your special event --
a private party or a celebration during a public class!
Scroll down to see both options.
Option 1: Private Event
You rent out the whole studio for your group. Usually costs the same or more per person than the public class rate for that evening (discounted rates available before 4:30pm M-F). The exact rate depends on the day, date and time of your event.
All private events include:
the private use of our studio for 2 hours (more time can be negotiated for an additional fee),
doors open 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time for mingling
a dedicated professional artist instructor,
a dedicated bartender for groups of 12 or more,
you decide the painting from our gallery,
complimentary light snacks,
great location at I-25 and Hampden, two blocks from light rail
Pricing: We do not charge a rental fee, but we do require a nonrefundable deposit to cover a minimum number of guests. Our studio holds up to 48 painters comfortably (guests do not have to paint, but they should arrive on time and the price is per guest, not per painter. We encourage everyone to paint!) .
The exact price will depend on the day and time of your event. Generally, Friday evenings and Saturdays all day are the most expensive, and weekdays 9-4 offer the best pricing. Sundays and weekday evenings are in between. The larger the number of your guests, the better your price per person will be. For exact quotes, please email us at , and give us the day and date and time, and the approximate # of people who will attend.
We require an accurate guest count 24 hours in advance so we have enough supplies and staffing for your event. (The cost for additional guests added on the day of the event to be negotiated.)
Beverages: We sell beer, wine, Izzies, sodas, and coffee. NO OUTSIDE BEVERAGES MAY be brought in according to Colorado liquor license laws. We do check ID and follow all CO laws regarding the sale and consumption of alcohol.
Food: We do not have a kitchen. We provide complimentary light snacks like pretzels and pub mix. We provide a card table for the additional foods you wish to bring in. You may bring additional pre-packaged, previously unopened snacks or finger foods (not an entire hot dinner) which are safely served at room temperature (chips and salsa, cupcakes, pre-packaged veggie tray, boxed lunches, pizza, or cheese and crackers, for example -- No crockpots, heated meat or cheese sauces, etc.) Please check with us at least 2-3 days before about your menu and set-up so that we have a table ready for your use.
Restaurants in the Area: We are located in a stip mall that has a Jimmy Johns, Wahoos, and Noodles. Across the street, there are a number of other restaurants, as well as a King Soopers with a deli. Many of our private event customers choose to use those restaurants to cater their refreshments, or they eat there first before coming in for their class.
Bar Tab Option: You may choose to pay in advance for your guests to have unlimited access to the bar, or for a limited number of drinks each (you decide and let us know which option you prefer). There is a mandatory 15% gratuity added for covered bar tabs.
Individual Drinks Option: Your guests may purchase their beer and wine on their own when they arrive (credit cards accepted). Prices are very reasonable – beer and wine start at $4.
Reservation and Deposit: There is a deposit required to reserve your date. We require a signed written agreement for private parties, which will detail these agreements, including registration, deposit, and payments, prepaid drinks, # of hours reserved, etc.
If you are ready to plan your private event, simply return the agreement form to us with your credit card information. As soon as we have the form and your deposit, and your day/date and time are confirmed as available, your time slot will be saved for you and your event will be confirmed.
Option 2: Group Discount during PUBLIC Class Times
Only $20 per person. Less expensive than posted public class rates, but "the catch" is you share the room with the public.
Every class, someone is celebrating something -- birthdays, anniversaries, engagements... you name it!
How to Register: You choose a public class from our website calendar. You can register your entire group under one name through the website with your own credit card, OR, you can also ask each guest to register on their own. Keep in mind our classes often sell out, so encourage each person registering separately to REGISTER EARLY. We do not accept reservations without payment and we do not reserve seating. Each party must arrive 30 minutes early to choose seats for your group.
Group Discount: We offer a low price of only $20 per class to groups of people who register everyone together more than two weeks in advance, online through our website. The minimum number of people ordering together for this discount is 4. Use the promo code "twenty" when you register on-line, through our website, to get this group discount. Group discount is only good for public events. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the discount for fundraisers or for Sunday classes.
If you are coming with a group, whether you register separately, or all at once to get the group discount, please be sure to REGISTER EARLY. Weekend classes often sell out early in the week. There is nothing sadder to us then seeing parties split up because some of the guests waited too long to register and the class was sold out.
Snacks: You may bring cupcakes or previously unopened, commercially prepared light snacks (not a meal) like chips and salsa, commercially prepared veggie tray, etc., to share for your celebration (nothing that requires refrigeration or heating; absolutely no crockpots, meat, cheese sauces, or homemade items, please!). Please bring enough for the entire class (our studio holds 45 people). No additional outside food may be brought in without our express permission in advance. Please email us at email@example.com to let us know what you will be bringing so we may prepare a table for you.
If you have chosen the Private Event Option described above, please email us back with the day, date and time of the event, and we will tell you if the space is available for a private event. We will also give you a per person quote, a copy of the agreement form, and the minimum deposit required. If you have chosen the Public Class Group Discount described above, please follow the instructions above to register.
We look forward to seeing your group at the studio soon!
