Frequently Asked Questions.


In the case of snow storms, if we are open and you can't make it to the studio, let us know at least THREE HOURS in advance via email to and we will issue a voucher for a future session of the same value. If we must cancel due to weather or other acts of nature, we will post a banner at the top of our website and on Facebook. We will send you a voucher for a future session of equal value. 

How do I sign up?

Sign up is easy. Click to select an event on our calendar. The price for each session is posted on the calendar.

Can I sit with my friends?

Yes! The first person in your party should create a seating group when signing up. A page will pop up right before the check out page that allows you to create a group that others in your party may “join” when they sign up. Our tables seat 6 and 8 guests. We try our best to seat friends together.

What if I have no art experience?

If you haven't painted since you were a kid, you're in for a treat and a night of great fun! Our expert instructors guide each class step-by-step to paint the featured painting. Regardless of your skill level when you walked through our door, at the end of the session you're going to be amazed at the painting you've created.

Are walk-ins welcome without a reservation?

Yes, definitely, but paint may sell out and we don't want you to be disappointed. We also reserve the right to cancel sessions with fewer than 6 attendees. For these reasons, we highly recommend signing up in advance, especially if you'd like to sit with friends. Visit our Calendar page to sign up online, or give us a call at 603.589.9948 to reserve your spot.

What time should I arrive for a session?

Check session times when registering for a class as they do change from day to day and week to week. Please arrive 10 - 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time to meet up with friends, find your seats, and get settled before instruction begins. Sessions last approximately 2.5 to 3 hours.

What should I wear?

We use acrylic paint which is not washable. We do provide aprons, but accidents happen. We highly recommend wearing something you wouldn't mind getting paint on just in case!

Do you serve alcohol?

Yes! Wine, beer, hard cider, lemonade, wine coolers and a variety of malt beverages are available from the bar for purchase. Wine is available by the glass or bottle. We also offer a variety of delicious spiked coffees! We will ask to see your ID. Nobody under 21 years old will be served alcoholic beverages.

Is food and drink included in the admission price?

Food and drink is available at an additional cost.

What about B.Y.O.B.?

Sorry. New Hampshire State law prohibits B.Y.O.B. at establishments with liquor licenses.

What food is available?

In addition to bagged snacks, we offer a selection of hot appetizers. Our menu occasionally changes, but our typical offerings include: Popcorn Chicken, Egg Rolls, Mini Pizzas, Jalapeño Poppers, Mozzerella Sticks, Taquitos. We also serve chocolate chop cookies baked on the premises.

Can kids come to the regular sessions?

Kids are welcome to join us at our regular sessions although adult discretion is advised. We recommend ages 16+ on Friday and Saturday nights. Parents know their children best and should select painting sessions they feel will be appropriate for their child. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Our regular painting sessions are taught at an adult level, but we have found that most kids do a great job so long as it's their wish to participate and they possess the required attention span. If you want more information about our kids' birthday parties, check out our Kids party page.
