Canceling for your class

No refunds are issued as payment,  but if you decide or need to cancel you must do so at least 24 hours prior to class starting.  In doing so we will credit your account and you can apply your credit to another class!

Inclement weather and low enrollment for a session/workshop.

stances that warrant us to cancel a class, we will notify everyone via the telephone number and/or email address on file in as much advanced notice as possible. If your class is canceled, you will be issued a credit to attend a class on a different day.

If there are only 2 people signed up for a session we do reserve the right to cancel the class.  We will call you  two hours beforehand and let you know.  We will be happy to refund your money or give you a credit  to sign up for another time.

If it is a WORKSHOP situation, we do need a minimum # of four participants.  If enrollment does not meet the minimum we will contact you the day before with the phone #/email address on file. We will be happy to refund your money or give you a credit to attend another session.

When should I arrive?

Doors will be open 30 minutes prior to each class starting.  This will give you plenty of time to get settled in and select a drink. If you want to ensure that your group sits together be sure to have someone from your group get there early enough to “save” the seats.  We do not save seats for you.

What kinds of drinks do we offer?

We have a selection of wine and beer, as well as non-alcoholic beverages, including coffee, tea, and soda for purchase.   Bringing your own beverage is not allowed.

What age do you need to be to paint?

To attend a night class at Sip & Canvas  generally we suggest 15 years of age, but it is really up to parents to decide what age.  Young children must be accompanied by an adult.  All morning and day classes are open to anyone 6 and older.

Where should I park?

There is parking available on the street as well as a parking lot located behind the building.  All of the local parking is free.

How many can we accommodate?

Our studio seats 36 artists.

Will my Painting be dry enough to take home?

Yes!  The Paint dries to touch in about 30 min.  But to expedite the process we do have a drying station to give your painting an extra dry feel if needed.

Can I bring my own supplies?

Sure, however there is no difference in your session fee.

Can we reserve the studio for a private event?

YES!  To reserve the studio the cost is a minimum of $360 for up to 12 people.  The full $360 is required even if there are less than 12 people attending your event. For every person over 12 people, it is an additional $30. You may bring your own snacks and decorations and cake, but no drinks; these must be purchased at our studio.  We are happy to assist you in planning for your event.  Please contact us for further ways to make your event special.

May we schedule a Birthday Event for a Child?

Yes, most definitely.  Children’s parties are ages 6 – 15.  To reserve the studio we require a minimum of $200, which includes 8 painters.  After that it is $25 per painter. To book the event  we do ask for a $100 deposit.  The party consists of 1.5 hours of fun instruction, leaving approximate 30 minutes for cake and socializing.  You can select your painting from our collection.  If you prefer a custom design, we are always happy to make one, but there is a $25 charge.

We do provide party supplies, including tablecloth, plastic ware and paper plates, if you would like.  Children receive a free beverage (soda, water, gatorade, juice, hot chocolate).  We also provide a small canvas for your guests to write their names and birthday messages! You are welcome to bring your own snacks, cake, and decorations.
