Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Wine and Canvas San Diego event like?

A fun, social atmosphere with an artist to guide you and your guests step by step in replicating the featured painting. By the end of the event, you will create a fabulous piece of artwork! Private Events are typically 2 – 3 hours depending on the painting you choose, with a short break for dry time about halfway through.

How far in advance do I need to book a private party?
We recommend contacting us at least 2-4 weeks before your preferred event date to check our availability and coordinate details, logistics, or virtual paint kit delivery. Sometimes we are able to accommodate last minute private event requests a few days before your event, so feel free to call us for availability and to discuss options.
What is the cost of a Wine and Canvas San Diego private event?
Contact us for a quote and to discuss your preferences and options for in-person, virtual or hybrid events. There is typically a 15-person minimum charge, and extra fees may apply based on the event type and location, such as shipping costs for virtual events or food/beverage minimums at venues. A nonrefundable deposit is required to hold and book your date, and the deposit is applied to the balance due 48 hours before your event.
What is included in the price?
We provide the Art Instructor, Canvas, Paint, Brushes, Easels, Aprons and Artsy Fun! And we help you coordinate your event from venue and artwork selection to shipping or setup details. Wine, refreshments and alcohol are not included and not required to paint.

The founders of Wine and Canvas love pairing wine with art, however, our groups typically purchase their own refreshments at venues or provide their own at private settings. Most venues have food and beverage minimum charges for private events which are in addition to Wine and Canvas private event fees. Contact us for venue options and more info.

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?
For in-person private events, we recommend arriving 15-30 minutes early or sooner to allow extra time for parking and getting seated. For virtual private events, we recommend checking in and setting up your supplies 15 minutes early to get ready.
What is your cancellation policy for private events?
We require at least 48-hours advance notice to cancel or reschedule a private event
(including corporate events and virtual parties). A nonrefundable deposit is required to book a private event. Generally the deposit is $160-$200 for small groups. Deposit requirements for large groups are higher based on group size and event type.

Cancellations or rescheduling requests should be made via email or by phone. Costs for virtual paint kits, shipping, and custom artwork that are incurred before the 48-hour notice are charged in full and nonrefundable. Reschedules can be transferred to a new date that is within 60 days after the original date. Contact us for more info.
