Do I need to sign up in advance?
Our classes have limited seating so signing up in advance is highly recommended. You can register online via our online calendar or come into the studio.
How much does it cost?
The standard price range is between $25-$45 depending on the event and the materials used. Typically a two-hour painting is $25-$35 and a three-hour painting is $40-$45. We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover Card, and gift certificates.
What is included?
We provide the artist, canvas, paint, brushes, easels, and aprons. We do all the setup and clean up. You just show up, have fun, create your artwork, and take it home. Snacks, beverages, and liquor are available in our studios and at some venues, but not typically included in the cost.
How long is a Picasso & Wine Class?
Classes are typically 2-3 hours long with plenty of entertaining breaks.
What should I wear?
We provide aprons, but suggest you wear clothing that is not your nicest. Dress comfortably and remember splatter happens.
What time do I arrive for a class?
Plan to arrive 20-30 minutes early to settle in, grab a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. If you’re a few minutes late, the staff will help you ‘catch up’. If you’re more than 15 minutes late, you’ll need to reschedule, subject to the Cancellation Policy. It’s your fun night out, arrive early!
If I come with a group, can we all sit together?
Seating is first come, first serve. If you have a large party please show up early or call us in advance. We typically can make sure your whole party stays together.
What is your cancellation policy?
Picasso & Wine offers an art instruction and entertainment event that can be compared to a concert or theater event. We realize that unforeseen things happen, but we also would appreciate the time to offer the seat to others and fill the spot. We DO NOT refund for reservations not cancelled 48 hours prior to the class, however we will issue you a credit, less a cancellation fee (depending on location). Sorry, there are no credits/refunds for NO SHOWS.
Special events have a 7-day cancellation policy. Special events include Paint Your Pet, Pop Art Paint Your Pet, Large Canvas Workshops and all Wood Signs.
We may cancel Public classes without a minimum of 10 attendees. Customers will be notified via email and a refund will be given. If a different event is scheduled instead, your ticket will automatically be transferred to the new event. You have the option of a refund up to 48 hours prior if you choose not to attend the replacement event.
Should I tip?
Our staff works very hard to ensure that you have a good time. Tipping is very much appreciated, but not required. Thank you!
Can I bring my own alcohol beverages to the class?
Sorry, outside beverages are not allowed at our Reno studios. Carson City does not have a bar, so you are welcome to BYOB.
Can I bring food to a Picasso & Wine studio?
Yes…you are welcome to bring light refreshments to the studio.
Are children welcome?
We offer Children and Family Day classes on Sundays at our S. Reno location, which are geared towards younger artists ages 7 & up. CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED AT EVENING OR MIMOSA MORNING EVENTS.
