Event Base Costs:

Class duration is determined by the painting you select.

Children’s Standard Class (2 Hour): $25 per person
This is our standard class length/cost. You may choose any of our Family Day paintings for this class (filter “Kids” in our Art Gallery).

Initial Fees:

Paint and Pour charges an Initial Fee of 2x a single ticket cost to setup your event. However, when your event is booked, you will provide the names of the first two guests. In effect, we are not charging anything extra for the booking, we are just requiring a minimal processing fee be paid in advance to setup the event details with our administration team. Unlike normal tickets to classes, there are no refunds for Initial Fees, as the work will already have been completed by our administration staff.

Typical Initial Fees:

2 Hour Child $50
3 Hour Child $70
2 Hour Teen $70
3 Hour Teen $90
Specialty $110

Studio Events in Ypsilanti:

The following information only applies to events at our studios:

  • Exceptions can be made for birthday cakes and other specialty items.

  • We require adequate tables and seating for all painters. We do offer tables and chairs for rent, see the Contract for more details.

  • We will not allow open containers to leave the premises of an event.
  • For events hosted at off-site locations owned/maintained by the patron, the patron is responsible for obtaining permission from the location.

Rescheduling Policy

We believe that the best part of our business is our relationship with our customers, so we do our best to work with you, even when problems arise.
