Frequently asked questions
You Come, You Paint, You Drink Wine.....
What is a Paint ’n Pour event like?
Paint ’n Pour is an art instruction studio for adults of all skill levels. No artistic experience is needed. An art facilitator walks you step by step through replicating the featured painting of the event in this relaxed, casual setting. Artists can paint their own unique piece of art while enjoying time with friends, music and a favorite beverage. Come ready to have fun – you’ll be amazed at the artwork you create.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
Because of limited seating, signing up in advance is strongly recommended. Visit the "Calendar" page to find a date that works, click on the "Register" tab or button and follow the directions for on-line registration. You can always email or call us to see if we have space at the last minute, or just stop by if you are in the neighborhood and check to see if we have easel space available.
What is the cost of a Paint ’n Pour event?
Events are $40 ($45 at the door). Please refer to the "Calendar" tab of our website for specific event days and paintings.
What is included in the price?
We provide the 16 x 20 canvas, acrylic paint in a variety of colors, use of brushes, easels and aprons, and step by step instructions for the featured painting. You'll go home with a painting, fun memories and perhaps a new found talent or passion! Wine, beer, soft drinks and water are available for purchase.
What is your cancellation policy?
For regular events, we ask that you give us 72 hours notice if you need to cancel or change your registration. Cancellations and date changes should be made phone or by email. This provides us the opportunity to fill the space. We offer a 100% refund to any cancellations done 72 hours before the event begins: we know that "life" happens. For cancellations less than 72 hours but before an event begins, we offer registration credit for a future event date at the same price point. No-shows will not be re-scheduled. For private and 'to go' events, the deposit is refundable if event is cancelled more than 21 days before the scheduled date. If cancelled 7 to 20 days prior, the deposit will be held as credit. Cancellation less than 7 days in advance of the event forfeits the deposit.
What food and beverages are available at an event?
We are very proud of the “Pour” section of our company name. We serve a red and white house wine and a selection of beers, each for the reasonable price of $4 per serving. We also offer wine for sale by the bottle. In addition we have soft drinks and prepackaged snacks (chips, candy bars, etc.) prices at $1 apiece.
Can I bring my own food and beverage?
Under some circumstances (private parties, special planned events) we do allow groups to bring in their own food and beverage. However, since most of the event time is spent primarily painting and socializing, we do not encourage participants to bring food in. Please discuss your ideas with us prior to the event. If you do have a special wine you want to bring and enjoy, we do have a corkage fee of $5/bottle (750L).
Why can’t my under-21 child sign up for an event?
Because of California’s Alcohol Beverage Control permit rules, our location is restricted to over-21 only. However, contact us for our Paint ’n Pour To Go events, created especially for children’s birthday parties and other events where we bring the art experience to you! Also see the "junior"
page on our website page.
What do I wear?
We provide aprons but recommend wearing paint-friendly clothing just to play it safe! Short sleeves or sleeves you can roll up will help keep cuffs out of the paint.
Where are you located?
Our studio is at 2772 Artesia Blvd, Redondo Beach, California, near the South Bay Galleria Mall, serving the Beach Cities and all of Greater Los Angeles.
What time are events held?
Check our monthly calendar for the specific event dates and times. For scheduled dates on our calendar, evening events usually begin at 6:30, Saturday afternoons usually start at 1:00 and Sunday afternoons at 2:30.
What time do I need to arrive for an event?
We recommend arriving at the start of the event time to get your apron, brushes, paint and beverage. Arrive up to 15 minutes early to help us select a seat of your choosing.
How long is an event?
Events last about 2 ½ to 3 hours, depending on the complexity of the painting.
Do I have to paint the featured painting of the event?
People are welcome to paint whatever they want to paint at our events. There are many painting examples on our walls to choose from as well. We, however, will be teaching the featured painting of the night and will be able to assist you with the steps needed for that painting. Often, artists follow the featured painting instructions but change the style or colors to reflect their own personal style and creativity.
What if I come with my significant other and we don't want two of the exact same painting?
Many couples choose to both paint the featured painting with one person inverting the image, or painting in a different color palette. This creates two unique canvases that can be hung side by side. Another option is to take the painting and alter it to spread across two canvases that can be hung side by side. Our instructors will help you think creatively so you can leave the night with unique canvas art for your home.
Can we host a private party at Paint ’n Pour?
Yes! Contact us for details on hosting your next birthday party, team building event, bachelorette party or family reunion. Parties in our studio, or our 'Paint 'n Pour To Go' where we come to you, are options. Email pnp@paintnpourRB.com for more details.
