Frequently Asked Questions

What is Creative Sippin’?

Our classes are meant to be fun! If you have never painted before, our team of local artists will guide you step-by-step on how to recreate the featured painting for that session. Get creative by putting your own touches; at the end of the session, you will be surprised at your masterpiece to bring home.


How do I register for a class?

You may register at the location of your choice by clicking on ‘Locations’ on our webpage. Choose your location and then click on the date and session you prefer and the site will guide you through the registration process. We will send you an email confirmation once you have completed the registration process.

Regular evening sessions are usually adult-oriented. Check our calendar for Kids and Family Day sessions for children 8 years old and up on weekends as well as mini workshops and kids camps!


What is the minimum/maximum number for a private party?

Call us at the studio of your choice to receive details about private parties. We also offer group rates.


Do you offer private parties for children?

We do! Children must be a minimum of 8 years old. NO EXCEPTIONS. There is a 15 child minimum for private parties.


What is included in the price?

Everything! We provide everything you will need for the class: 16″ x 20″ canvas, paint, brushes, easels and aprons. We even clean up after you are done!


Can I bring a snack or beverage?

Absolutely, we are a BYOB paint and sip studio so bring your own bottle of wine or other spirits- it may help you paint better!


What time do I need to arrive for a class?

We will open the doors 60 minutes before class.  Typically the first 30 minutes of each class is a time to get settled in and have a glass of wine or grab a bite to eat.  We start promptly 30 minutes in to each class time.  We do start the class ON TIME.


Can I reserve seats for my friends so we can sit together?

Seating is on a first come first serve basis. The doors will open one (1) hour prior to the event to allow you to come in to reserve seating for your guests. We will allow you to hold seats up to 15 minutes prior to the start of the event. After that we kindly ask that you allow others that may be waiting to be seated.


How long is a class?

Depending on the painting, most classes run 2 to 2 1/2 hours and cost $35. We will indicate on the calendar if a painting is a 3-hour class. The 3 to 3 1/2 hour classes will be $45.


What should I wear to sessions?

We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes to every session. We supply aprons for protection against water-based acrylic paint that we use. These paints become water-resistant when they dry, so roll your sleeves up!


What is your cancellation policy?

You can reschedule your individual registration 48 hours before the session to get a credit towards another class. Registration charges for sessions not cancelled 48 hours in advance will not receive a credit or be refunded.


May I bring a non-painting guest to class to watch me while I paint?

No, sorry. This is a “hands-on” activity.


Do you offer Gift Certificates?

YES! Gift certificates are available and make great gifts for any occasion. We can email you a gift certificate for you to print out or come in the studio for a wrapped certificate! You can even pick one up at the end of your painting evening!


When does the new schedule of upcoming classes come out?

The calendar for the upcoming month is posted the third week of each month. But if you are thinking of a certain date for a private party, please let us know and if no one has signed up for the public event we will be happy to switch it out!


What if there is inclement weather on a night that I have purchased ticket for an event?

We understand that weather is unpredictable, however, if we are open for business, there will be no refunds or reschedules allowed.  In the event that we do have to cancel for severe weather, we will do our best to reach out to you prior to the event and will be happy to reschedule for a later date.


Is Creative Sippin’ an art instruction studio?

While you will learn how to create a painting you’ll be proud of, the focus is on fun and having a unique night out. During the class we’re playing fun music, and gives you the chance to socialize with your date, friends or significant other. It’s a class you won’t soon forget and our instructors place an emphasis on having fun. We do offer advanced classes periodically for those more serious about learning new techniques and working with locally famous artists…but still having fun. Check our calendar monthly as it is always changing.
