Are you stressing because you haven’t painted in 20 years? Are you freaking out because you don’t know what to expect? This page is for you! If you are still feeling uneasy, just have some more questions or really just want to chat it up about your obsession with Bob Ross and all things happy trees, email us at [email protected] . We will give you all the additional details you need to finally join us for the most fun ever!
- How do I register:
Decide what painting event you want to attend and bam, go on and sign yourself (and friends) up! We recommend you register in advance because events fill up fast.
- How much does it cost:
Most seats to our events are $35 ($38 as of 2023), with a few variations depending on the event. You can view event costs by visiting our website calendar. Seat fee includes all the fun and everything you need to create a one-of-a-kind painting in a 2-hour period. (Funny and entertaining artist included too!)
- What Should I Expect?
A typical event at Paint and Sip is an event like no other. You will be instructed to paint a one-of-a-kind masterpiece in a super fun and judgmental free environment! The atmosphere is representation of the artists participating! Expect to sing along to great music, maybe have a dance party or just relax and zone out without an outside care in the world! Our first priority is to show you a GOOD TIME!
- Do I Need to Bring Anything?
All you need to bring is yourself! We provide everything: paint, canvas, brush, apron and a really talented and funny artist to entertain you while you paint. Come to the studio 10-15 minutes early so you can grab a drink and seat. We have a selection of beer, wine, soft drinks and water for sale at our in-studio bar! You can bring in any NON-alcoholic beverages or food and snacks to enjoy. We are not a BYOB establishment. Seating is first come, first serve (like the movies used to be!)
- What Should I Wear?
Paint and Sip is a great place for a night out! Although aprons will be provided, please dress accordingly. For example, white pants are not the best option at our studio. Which is such a bummer because if you can pull off white pants, by golly, you should wear them…just not at our studio. Let’s face it…SPLATTER happens! We use acrylic paint and once it’s on your clothes, it really likes to stay there! You can purchase Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover from your local convenient store and it works like a charm, but you have to act fast and really put some elbow grease into it.
- What is your Cancellation Policy
What a bummer! You can’t make it! Shucks! A 48 hour notice is required to have a studio credit issued to use within 90 days of notification. We do not issue refunds. No-Shows will NOT be rescheduled. We welcome Winter and rarely cancel events due to weather. Please plan accordingly or contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend. Please note that any credit can only be rescheduled ONE time.
Cancellations or re-booking requests MUST be done by Emailing: [email protected]
- Is Your Studio BYOB?
Burlington Paint and Sip does NOT allow guests to bring their own alcohol. We have a selection of beer and wine available for purchase. You are more than welcome to bring in any NON-alcoholic beverages to enjoy during your event.
- Do You Offer Private Parties?
Heck Yes! A paint and sip party is perfect for pretty much any celebration known to man or WOMAN! Some parties hosted in the past have been bachelorette parties, baby showers, work parties, team builders and one of our faves, a retirement party where we all painted the guest of honor’s face! Visit our private events page for more information. We want to privately party with you! Get more info on Private Parties
- How old do I have to be?
We recommend that you be at least 7 years old to paint at our studio and be accompanied by a grown-up if you’re under 16 years old. VT State law requires you to be 21 years old to sip with us at our studio! We card everyone, so come prepared! Even you, Granny!
- What is the Partici-painter program and how does it work?
Think of it as our “loyal customer program”, and it is handled entirely online. When you go to check-out from a purchase, you will be asked if you want to join. Of course you will want to check “yes” and you will set up an account with a password. Based on your purchases you will earn points towards future class purchases, so always make sure to login and take advantage of the opportunity! Points can only be used towards classes pre-scheduled online, not studio purchases or classes paid for in-studio, so plan ahead!
- Do you offer group discounts?
While we don’t offer group discounts, our “Partici-painter” program is a great way to save with groups! You earn points towards seats with every purchase, so we recommend joining the program and purchasing the bulk of your tickets, then use your points in another purchase to save on additional seats. And remember, if you have a group of 13 or more, you may prefer a private party!
