Painting in the Vineyard FAQs

What should I wear? Will the paint stain my clothes?
We provide aprons, but we recommend wearing clothes you wouldn’t mind getting a little colorful. The acrylic paint is water-soluble and non-toxic but occasionally will stain certain materials.

Does my ticket include wine?
Most events do include wine—there are a couple exceptions and those are listed on the reservation page.

What are we painting?
Well, first of all, you are free to paint whatever you’d like…BUT, the instructor will be teaching from the actual scenery at the given location (i.e. vineyard, mountain-scape, lake etc) and will provide step-by-step instruction.

Is there an age limit?
The majority of our events are held at wineries and since they include wine, lend themselves to an 21+ audience, however younger guests are welcome (they just won’t be served wine).

What is the cancellation policy?
We understand that life happens and can do a full refund if you give us 24 hour’s notice. Any point beyond that you can expect to have a partial refund or we can reschedule you for another event—whichever you’d prefer.

What about the weather?
Part of outdoor painting is understanding that whatever the given day serves up in the form of weather…we deal with. The majority of the time, the central coast provides beautiful weather, however, on occasion we are surprised by more challenging conditions. When that happens, we do our best to accommodate and make adjustments for our guests comfort.
