Are you stressing because you haven’t painted in 20 years? Are you freaking out because you don’t know what to expect? This page is for you! If you are still feeling uneasy, just have some more questions or really just want to chat it up about your obsession with Bob Ross and all things happy trees, email us at [email protected] or give us a shout at (518) 785-8244. We will give you all the additional details you need to finally join us for the most fun ever!
- How do I register:
Decide what studio is your fave and visit it’s calendar page here. Click on the painting event you want to attend and bam, go on and sign yourself (and friends) up! We recommend you register in advance because events fill up fast.
- How much does it cost:
Seats in our events are between $25 and $50 depending on the featured painting and project. You can view event costs by visiting our website calendars. Seating fee includes all the fun and everything you need to create a one-of-a-kind painting in a 2-hour period. (Funny and entertaining artist included too!)
- What Should I Expect?
A typical event at Paint and Sip is an event like no other. You will be instructed to paint a one-of-a-kind masterpiece in a super fun and judgmental free environment! The atmosphere is representation of the artists participating! Expect to sing along to great music, maybe have a dance party or just relax and zone out without an outside care in the world! Our first priority is to show you a GOOD TIME!
- Do I Need to Bring Anything?
All you need to bring is yourself! We provide everything: paint, canvas, brush, apron and a really talented and funny artist to entertain you while you paint. Come to the studio 10-15 minutes early so you can grab a drink and seat. We have a selection of beer, wine, soft drinks and water for sale at our in-studio bar! You can bring in any NON-alcoholic beverages or food and snacks to enjoy. We are not a BYOB establishment. Seating is first come, first serve (like the movies used to be!)
- What Should I Wear?
Paint and Sip is a great place for a night out! Although aprons will be provided, please dress accordingly. For example, white pants are not the best option at our studio. Which is such a bummer because if you can pull off white pants, by golly, you should wear them…just not at our studio. Let’s face it…SPLATTER happens! We use acrylic paint and once it’s on your clothes, it really likes to stay there! You can purchase Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover from your local convenient store and it works like a charm, but you have to act fast and really put some elbow grease into it.
- What is your Cancellation Policy
What a bummer! You can’t make it! Shucks! A 48 hour notice is required to have a studio credit issued to use at a later date. We do not issue refunds. No Shows will NOT be rescheduled. We welcome Winter and rarely cancel events due to weather. Please plan accordingly or contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend.
Cancellations or rebooking requests MUST be done by Emailing: [email protected]
- Is Your Studio BYOB?
Saratoga Paint and Sip does NOT allow guests to bring their own alcohol. We have a selection of beer and wine available for purchase. You are more than welcome to bring in any NON-alcoholic beverages to enjoy during your event.
- Do You Offer Private Parties?
Heck Yes! A paint and sip party is perfect for pretty much any celebration known to man or WOMAN! Some parties hosted in the past have been bachelorette parties, baby showers, work parties, team builders and one of our faves, a retirement party where we all painted the guest of honor’s face! Visit our private events page for more information. We want to privately party with you! Get more info on Private Parties
- How old do I have to be?
We recommend that you be at least 7 years old to paint at our studio and be accompanied by a grown-up if you’re under 16 years old. NY State law requires you to be 21 years old to sip with us at our studio! We card everyone, so come prepared! Even you, Granny!
