After that, you will follow easy step by step instructions to complete your painting or project.

A normal session will cost $30-$35. You will get all materials needed to complete the painting or project, unless otherwise indicated. “Like” our Facebook page to keep on top of discount offers!

Can I BYOB?
No. BYOB is not legal in Ohio. We will not allow this in order to protect you from receiving an open container citation, and to protect ourselves as well.
Why didn't my coupon code work?
Coupons can be used on any regular event, but not for private parties, fundraisers, or special events such as Paint your Pet. Promo Codes will not be accepted for these events, therefore, a discount will not be shown. Also, check the expiration date on the code, it may be expired!
What should I wear?
We have aprons for you to wear, but be prepared in case an accident occurs! We suggest very casual clothing that you don’t mind getting paint on. The paints we use are not washable, and we can not be responsible for articles of clothing or other possessions that are ruined due to paint.
Are children allowed?
We offer children’s parties, but not for evening sessions, and minus the alcohol sales. Please leave the little kids at home…this is for your enjoyment as well! We will welcome those 16+ if accompanied by a paying parent.
Where should I park?
There is plenty of on-site parking available. This includes next to the Centerville Drive-Thru, and at the nearby apartments that share the property.
What materials will be used for projects?
We will use non-toxic acrylic paint for most paintings. For some projects, we will be using tools that could inflict injury if not used properly, such as a glue gun or craft knife.
What if I want to paint something other than the feature painting?
You can paint anything! You just won’t get the step by step instructions that go with the featured painting of the evening.
How do I book a private party?
Just call! We can work out the details of your private event for any special occasion. You can also book a private event if there is a group that wants to do a certain painting that we aren’t offering soon. There is a minimum of 5 painters for private parties.
