Bring your drinks and snacks to enjoy during class if you would like.

Can I just paint whatever i want?
We will provide step by step instructions for the scheduled painting. We encourage creativity! If you want to do your own thing, go for it, but there will not be step by step guidance on how to complete it.
How do I sign up a group to attend an open to the public class?
Option 1: Select the number of seats you want to reserve for the specific class online and pay online.
Option 2: Ask everyone in your group to reserve individually online and have one point person email us at firstname.lastname@example.org let us know the number in your group and we will make every effort to seat your group together!
Do I have to make a reservation? can i just walk in?
All reservations and payments are done online. Many classes will sell out. Also, if there are not any reservations for a class, we may cancel the class or switch the painting. We set up a painting station for each person. Please make a reservation so we can set up for you and have you seated appropriately with your group if you are joining one.
Can I bring something to drink other than wine? what kind of food/snacks can i bring?
Sure! You can bring any non-alcoholic (guests over age 21 may bring alcoholic) beverage to enjoy during class. You can bring any food or snacks. Some common snacks people bring in are cheese and crackers, chips and dip, fruit tray, veggie tray, chocolate, cookies etc. You can even order pizza, we don't mind!
Can I stop in anytime and paint?
We hold classes at specific times and those are the only times guests can come in and paint. To join a class, please view our calendar, select a painting you like and register online!
Can kids come to class too?
Many of our classes are geared toward all ages. However, some of our events may involve more complex projects younger children may find too challenging. Each event will specify. Also, we can do private parties for kids, such as a birthday party. See Private Parties for more details.
Will my painting be dry at the end of the night?
Yes, if there are a few damp places we have hair dryers and fans which will dry them quickly.
What do you provide?
Your reservation fee includes everything you need to create a beautiful and unique painting! When you arrive you are supplied with an apron, canvas, brushes, paints and step by step instruction throughout the class! When class is done, your artwork is ready to hang!
What do I wear?
Wear whatever is comfortable and you don't mind if a little paint gets on it. We do supply aprons, but if you by chance get paint on your clothes and it dries, it will not come out. If you catch it while it's still wet you can usually get it out with some soap and water.
What size is the canvas?
Each class will specify the size canvas which will vary based on the project!
What if i'm late? can i still paint?
Try to arrive 15-20 minutes early to get uncorked, smocked, & in your seat! We like to begin painting at the time listed so we don’t feel rushed at the end. If you are too late to class, you may not be allowed to paint and forfeit your payment. We want everyone to enjoy a step-by-step experience! Arriving late to your session will not allow you or your fellow classmates the best possible experience.
What is your refund policy?
A refund or credit will be given to individuals canceling with at least 24 hours notice. "No shows" will not be issued a store credit or refunds.
How do I cancel a reservation?
You may cancel your reservation online. We have a 24 hr cancellation policy so as long as you cancel your reservation at least 24 hours in advance of the class time you will be issued a refund. No shows without a notice of cancelling will not receive a refund.
Create and Connect Studio reserves the right to cancel classes for unforeseen circumstances. Registrants will be notified at least 24 hours prior to class time and refunds will be processed.
