When the two studios are booked for the same event, we offer our Gallery3 (in the middle of the two studios),  depending on space availability, and 30 min extra time for free, so G3 could potentially be used for serving drinks and refreshments. Please see the plan area at the bottom of this page.

There is a 15 days cancellation policy. If less than a 15 days notice of cancellation is given, the $150 deposit will not be refunded. 

How do I reserve and pay for my party?

Once the private party has been booked and the deposit made, we will send you a link to our library so that you can select a painting.  The host/hostess can then pay with one payment for the party, at least 5 days before the party.

With our step-by-step guide, you are guaranteed to enjoy every moment of painting your masterpiece in our studio while your family and friends poke fun at you.
  • Sorority parties. Organizing a sorority party can be quite daunting if you don’t have great ideas to entertain your sisters. Don’t let that weigh you down. By organizing a painting party in our studio, you can create a bond of sisterhood and help members to discover their hidden painting skills.
  • Church group outings. Many people don’t like showing up for church group outings. This is because they erroneously believe that church group outings are boring. You can prove them wrong by inviting them to our studio to paint Biblical images on canvas.

  • Team Building. Teams that like each other work better together! Build mateship among colleagues and have colourful synergies at the same time in our studio, which can host up to 30 people… or if you prefer to produce your deliverables in-house, we can come to your office or conference location instead.
