Are your studios handicapped accessibility?

Warminster: Yes, all three studios are wheelchair accessible. There is handicapped parking in the back parking lot. Our studio is equipped with a handicapp restrooms and we have some ADA wheelchair accessible tables available for painters. We want everyone to experience the liberating freedom of expressing their inner artist.

Peddler’s Village: The lower shop is wheelchair accessible, however the upstairs studio is not. If you would like to paint Make-N-Takes we can set up a small table for you in the shop area, but the studios are not ADA compliant.

Newtown: While the building is wheelchair accessible, the bathrooms are not ADA accessible.


How long is each paint event?

Events generally run about 2-1/2 hours, but can range from 1-1/2 to 4 hours from start to finish. All of our paintings are tiered (and priced) according to time.

Painting begins shortly after everyone has been checked in.


I’m not a painter! or I haven’t painted since kindergarten!  I can’t believe I’m trying this!!

Don’t worry!! There is absolutely NO experience necessary here at The Uncorked Artist!

There are no critics here, and we want you to leave your perfectionism at the door. We want this experience to be all about you expressing yourself via a blank canvas. A relaxed attitude and giving yourself permission to express yourself are the two most important steps having a great painting experience!

Our friendly instructors step you through the entire painting process—you’ll be amazed with the finished masterpiece that YOU create and take home with you.


Do we need to bring anything with us?

You are encouraged to bring your favorite beverage (BYOB) and any snacks you may enjoy. Guests occasionally have pizza delivered.

We supply everything else!

 


What should I wear?

Although we have smocks available and all our acrylic paints are water-based (and non-toxic), it is very difficult to get paint out of clothes once it dries. It’s best to immediately wash as much of the paint off your clothes as you possibly can. Just to be safe, you should wear comfortable clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting paint on.


Do we tip the Instructors?

Tips are very much appreciated. The instructor keeps 100% of the tips. Ask our host/hostess if you need change for larger bills, so you can tip your instructor yourself.


Do you sell alcohol?

NO, we do NOT have a liquor license, we do NOT sell any alcohol. We do NOT serve alcohol.

NO ONE under 21 is permitted to drink alcohol while at The Uncorked Artist.

We reserve the right to check ID.


Is your studio BYO?

Yes, you are encouraged to bring your favorite drink (beer, wine, soda, juice etc.) and snacks. We do have free bottled water available here and a Keurig coffee maker available for all customers.


If I come with a friend or a group, can we all sit together?

You bet! We always try to seat friends and parties together . . . just be sure to give us all the information in the COMMENTS section when you make your reservation.


Do you offer private parties?

Yes! A paint party is perfect for any occasion. Visit our private parties page for more information!


Do I have to paint the featured painting for that night?

NO, you may paint anything you wish, but our artist will only be offering step-by-step instruction on the featured painting.

Also, feel free to change the color palette to whatever you prefer! Most of our paintings can be adapted to suit your request. We’ll help you get other colors, just ask the instructor or host/hostess.

This experience is all about YOU exploring YOUR individuality.


Is this a serious art class?

No, the Uncorked Artist does not offer serious art instruction, our studio hosts social paint parties. We are more interested in you exploring your creativity, discovering your inner artist, having fun with friends and socializing. You WILL create your own unique masterpiece, but our events are designed to be lighthearted and fun.


Is this just for beginners only?

No, people with all sorts of art backgrounds enjoy The Uncorked Artist paint parties.


What size canvas do you use?

Most events use a 16″ x 20″ canvas. And we paint the edges of the canvas, so you don’t have to purchase a frame (unless you want too). Some events do use 10″ x 20″, 12″ x 12″  or 11″ x 14″ canvas, the painting gallery indicates the painting size.
For mobile (off-site) parties we typically use either 12×12 or 11×14 canvases.


What if I don’t finish my painting?

We plan enough time during the event, but if for some reason you need more time to finish (no extra charge), check the public calendar for an upcoming public party that is not sold out. Then email [email protected] and let us know that you will be stopping by with your painting to do some touch-ups.


How long will it take for my painting to dry?

It will feel dry to the touch after about 1/2 hour, but will continue to thoroughly dry over the next few days.

We provide several drying stations where hair dryers are available to help quick-dry your painting.

After it’s dry to the touch, you can carefully handle it by its edges and transport it face up in your car.


Is there an age requirement for public paint events?

Yes, our evening BYOB paint parties are intended for adults over 21 years old. Teens over 15 years old may attend IF accompanied by a paying adult.

Children under 15 and under are encouraged to attend our “All-Ages” events, and must be accompanied by an adult at all times. The parent/guardian does not need to reserve a seat for him/herself, but does need to remain on the premises.


How often do you update your calendar?

New paintings and party schedules are posted on a rolling basis. Check back often! We try to post events at least a month ahead of time.


I missed a painting that I really want to paint! Do you ever repeat paintings?

You bet! If there is a specific painting that you would like to see again, please let us know by emailing [email protected] We will keep this in mind when scheduling future paintings.

You can also like our Facebook page and easily make painting requests on our page.


What are your FUNdraisers?

We strongly believe in giving back to our community.

We think that creating works of art while raising money for a great cause is an amazing combination!

We hold charitable event fundraisers often.

During our FUNdraising events, everyone can sign-up through our calendar as usual, but on these special sessions, we donate a portion of the event fee (usually half of the registration fee) to the selected charity.

Anyone can attend these events, you do NOT need to be affiliated with the specific charitable group to attend.

Help us give back to the community—visit the FUNdraising page and send us a request to host an event.

Please note, our FUNdraisers are so popular that we tend to schedule them over a year in advance!

And now, we offer Mobile FUNdraisers too!


How do I register for a private party?

Private parties should be reserved at least 1-2 months ahead of time, but can be scheduled many months ahead. Register for a private party by filling out the request form on our Private Party page, telling us your desired date(s) and time(s). We will check availability and get back to you.

Don’t get discouraged if you already see an event on our calendar for the date you are interested in. Our Warminster and Peddler’s Village studios have several rooms. Unless there is already another private party booked, that slot is probably available!
