How do I sign up and can I just walk in?
The classes have limited seating so signing up prior to the actual event will ensure your spot for attendance. I do sometimes have availability for walk-in – but it will be posted when it is available. You can register for a class just by clicking on the event from the front page and purchasing your ticket.
What is included?
You will receive a 12 x 16 inch canvas (unless otherwise stated) , and the use of paint, pallets, brushes, easels, and aprons. I will set you up and clean up the mess left behind.
In- Studio - (once Covid has subsided) I do provide some drinks, Coffee, Soda, Water, Tea, and popcorn. I do also accept donations for these as well so that everyone can enjoy these items as well.
How much does it cost?
The standard price range is between $25-$35 (however, can vary due to the project or the event.) It all depends on the material that is used for the specific event. Painting usually is around 2 hours. I accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, Paypal, and gift certificates.
For Fundraisers: The balance is due the day of the event. You may also request an invoice.
What time do I arrive for a class?
It all depends on the location, at the studio 5-10 minutes early.
What type of clothing should I wear?
While I provide an apron, I suggest not wearing your best outfit. I do realize that you are going out with friends and want to look nice – but please be aware that acrylic does not come out of fabric. Splatter from the brush will happen and I do not want you to ruin your nice clothing.
Can my group sit together?
Seating will always be first come first serve, but do not worry – I will walk around the room and give everyone personal detailed attention on their art or answer any questions they have with their painting.
First and foremost – there are NO credits or refunds for no-shows.
Your tickets are fully transferable and you may switch your ticket to anyone – I will ask the name of the attendee at the beginning of the paint night to make sure everyone is accounted for – they will need to say who purchased the tickets.
I reserve the right to cancel any classes without a minimum of 10 attendees – if that is the case and that does happen, you will receive an email and a full refund of your paint night charge in the form that you paid.
If for whatever reason you decide not to come to a paint night that you have already paid for, I must be notified at a minimum of 48 hrs prior to the event so that I can reopen the spot – as there are waiting lists at some events.
Fundraisers are FINAL SALE - no Credits or Refunds!
Private parties are subject to nonrefundable deposits and if a deposit is not collected at the time of the booking a $50 fee will be invoiced if a party is canceled or no show. This includes booking through rarebirdartstudio.com.
Once in a while I offer great deals, like 10 percent or more off a paint night event. Sometimes even BUY ONE GET ONE FREE - however, when those sales post they only go towards future purchases and not previous purchases.
You may tip the artist, but it is not required. I work very hard to make sure that you are all having a great time and produce beautiful pieces of work. Thank you.
You should always tip your waitress or waiter at the restaurant the event is taken place.
