Aprons, canvas, paint, brushes, and all supplies needed to create your piece. We also have glasses, bottle openers and the fun.
What to bring?
Friends, snacks and drinks, wear comfy, non fancy clothes. Acrylic paint does NOT wash out of your clothes. Stay away from greasy finger foods when painting ceramics or your piece may not come out as you had hoped
What does "Walk IN or Open Studio mean?
Walk In means that you are free to walk in the studio during open studio time and paint anything we have. Open studio time is anytime during our normal business hours that are posted on our website or on the front window. No appointment is necessary. We do recommend that if you have a group of 5 or more that you call ahead to let us know so that we have space for your group. Space will be held for 15 minutes and then released to other walk in customers. During Walk In/Open studio time, we do not have private instruction availalbe. If you feel that you need one on one attention we recommend that you sign up for a class that offers instruction or make a private appointment with an instructor for one on one time. No child is to ever be left in our studio unattended if they are under the age of 12. There MUST be an adult 18 years or older present with them at all times. Please plan on assiting your child with their project if you come in during open studio time.
If your child is 12 or over you may leave them in the studio with a signed waiver, however they must be able to work independently as no instructor will be available to offer one on one time with them. Please do not leave your child in our studio without our staff being aware that you are intending to do so. We have no idea how to contact you, if your child has special needs or allergies.
If you are coming in with a child and you are not painting, please be respectful, as seats are limited and for creators. Please do not place all your belongings on empty chairs or have non painters sit in empty chairs. We do have coat racks in the studio for your belongings. If we are not busy, you are certainly welcome to sit with your child, however we ask that if we need a seat for a painter that comes in, that you kindly get up for them to sit and create. We appreciate your cooperation.
Please look and do not touch the ceramic pieces as you are deciding what to paint. The oils and greases from your hands get on them and leave a film which can cause the glaze to not adhere to them when fired.
Do I have to know how to paint?
No, we prefer that you didn’t. You will be more amazed at what you can do. We do have tracing patterns that are available upon request for almost all of our designs.
What if I want a design that you don't offer
Custom work is done at a rate of $ 20 per hour for ceramics and glass. Custom canvas paintings are $ 35 for a 16 x 20 and $ 25 for a 12 x 12
What if I can’t finish my painting, ceramic or glass piece?
You are welcome to bring your canvas painting in during any "Paint at Your Leisure" time and complete it or touch it up. You are free to come back and finish your ceramic or glass piece. If you do return to paint a piece of ceramics or a canvas painting or finish a glass piece that you have not finished, a studio fee of $5 will apply to each return visit. The ceramic and glass pieces must remain in our studio until complete and fired to avoid contamination with elements that may cause them not to fired properly. You will be asked to take your unfinished canvas with you and bring it back when you are ready to complete it. We are not responsible for items left in our studio that become damaged or broken. Pieces left more than 30 days without completion will be discarded.
In the event of inclement weather and you feel that you are unable to safely come to a class you have signed up for, you can choose to reschedule for another scheduled time or use your time during our open studio for ceramics or canvas painting. Please let us know if you are unable to make it. If Gone Paintin' cancels the event you will be given the option of a refund or to apply your reservation to another event or open studio time.
Please give us a 48 hour notice for cancellation for any classes that you preregistered for or no refund can be issued. You may use the payment made as store credit for a future date for canvas or ceramics with no expiration dates.
Ceramics pick up
You will be given the date that your piece will be ready for pick up. All pieces will be packaged and labeled for your pick up. We will hold onto pieces for 30 days in our studio. After that time, you piece will be donated or discarded unless special arrangements are made for pick up. We hope you understand that our studio is not that large and storage of ceramic pieces for an extended period of time takes up space for our inventory. We appreciate your understanding.
You will receive one phone call as a reminder.
Our birthday parties are all drop off parties except for the preschool party package. If you feel that your child is not ready for a drop off party please consider having the party at your home or another location, we do off site parties. If you prefer to have the party in the studio and parents must wait, we can arrange a birthday party time either before or after our open studio hours for a party fee of $ 25. Only the birthday child's parents are permitted in the party area during the party. Waiting in the main studio is not permitted unless you decide to work on a project while your child is attending the party. No studio fee for ceramics or glass or $ 5 off a canvas painting should any waiting parents want to do something in the open studio area.
