Frequently Asked Questions
What is “Paint Who You Love” & “Paint Your Pet”?
These custom events are created with your specific image that you submit when registering for the event. When you arrive your custom canvas is waiting! No experience needed. The canvas is numbered and we will instruct you with mixing color and how to paint your Monochromatic work of art!
What is the size of the custom artwork that is printed for me?
Our Custom Canvas “Who you Love” and “Paint your Pet” is created on a 16×20 canvas.
What do we learn at the custom printed canvas events?
A local artist is at every event to instruct paint mixing, color matching, and brush handling. Our local artist is available for help with fixing mistakes and questions!
What colors can I choose from?
The custom paintings that we offer are Monochromatic which means you will need to choose one color which will turn into 5 different shades. We have 6 colors to choose from; Black, Blue, Green, Purple, Red and Turquoise. You will mix the chosen color into 5 different shades in the class.
What type of photo should I use?
We find people enjoy their experience the most when you choose a photo or image that is important to you. A loved one or a pet for example. You can take a photo with a smart phone, just make sure there is plenty of light and the image is clear. We recommend a high resolution photo, 500×500 pixels to 1080×1080, and in a .jpg, .gif, or .png photo. Here are some examples:
How far in advance do I need to send my photo?
You will need to provide your photo on the day you register for the event. You must register a minimum of 15 days prior to the scheduled event. The cut off for registration is 15 days to the date of the event. We need time to process your canvas and have it waiting for you when you arrive to paint your custom masterpiece!
Can I cancel my “Paint who you love” or “Paint your Pet”?
Wine and Canvas Custom Canvas events are specifically designed for you. This is a customized canvas. It is your loved one on the canvas and it takes a considerable amount of time and manpower to put your specific canvas together. Therefore, once you register, there are no reschedules, no credits and no refunds. No exceptions. If you are unable to attend the class, we will make arrangements for you to pick up your custom canvas at one of our locations.
What is a Wine and Canvas event like?
A fun, social, group setting, with an artist to guide you step by step in replicating the nights featured painting. By the end of the evening you will create a fabulous piece of artwork! The event times vary but we suggest arriving 30 minutes early to get the seat of your choice. Events are 2 1/2 – 3 hours with frequent breaks. Wine and Canvas is an adult event, no children under 16 are permitted. Some of our venues are an actual bar location and you must be 21 to enter. Please check description of the event.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
We recommend signing up in advance because of limited seating, most of our events will sell out. You can register on the website or give us a call and we will be happy to walk you through the registration process.
What is the cost of a Wine and Canvas event?
The price range is generally between $35-$45, but this may vary by location, night, and painting. Fundraisers are usually a little more.
What is included in the price?
We provide the Artist, Canvas, Paint, Brushes, Easels, and Aprons. Refreshments and alcohol are not included. Wine and Canvas is the name of our company because we believe “wine” is the perfect compliment to art however not everyone partakes in consuming alcohol and we do not want someone to pay for something they do not participate in. Drinking a soft drink for some individuals is a perfect combination for them. We keep the price at $35 – $45 for the supplies and instruction and do not increase the price to include beverages so that everyone has a choice. Most of our venues run drink specials or have a fun menu to choose from and our studio locations have very inexpensive drinks.
What do I wear?
We provide aprons, but you may want to wear something you wouldn’t mind getting paint on — just in case!
What time do I need to arrive for an event?
We recommend arriving 30 minutes early to get signed and seated.
Are any events BYOB (bring your own bottle)?
BYOB is not allowed in any studio location or any restaurant partnering for a Wine and Canvas event. It is illegal in many states to BYOB. Please check with your specific location for details concerning BYOB. Our partnering restaurants and venues offer great drink and food options! Wine and Canvas Studios offer an inexpensive variety of alcohol and great snack options, so please contact your local Wine and Canvas Studio for more information.
What is your cancellation policy?
Wine and Canvas is an entertainment event much like a concert, dinner theater or movie theater. We do allow cancellations or reschedules unlike the above but we do require a 48 hour notice for regular Wine and Canvas events only. This does not include Gifted Custom Art classes. Cancellations should be made via email or by phone. This provides us the opportunity to fill the space. We will provide a full refund or reschedule you with 48 hours notice.

Cancellations are very rare and customers will be notified via phone and/or email of cancelled classes.
