Do I need to have any painting experience?

No - it is great if you don’t have any art experience!  This is for fun. If you do have experience, you will find our paintings suitable for very experienced painters. There is always something new to learn!


How do I sign up?

Go to the calendar page, click on the painting and begin to sign up, or call us at 603-948-7203, or email us at


Do I need to bring anything?

We provide all materials!  Brushes, water, paint, canvas, easels and aprons - you just need to bring your food and drinks!


How long are the classes?

Most classes are at least 2 hours long, some are 3 hours.  We try and keep the class at the pace of the slowest painter, so often a class can end up an hour longer than listed.  We would rather you happy with your painting, than having you feel rushed.


Do I have to know how to draw?

Absolutely not!  We provide templates for difficult objects and assist you with everything else.  Some of the paintings are pre-sketched and we check with you to see if you would like yours pre-sketched.  We are happy to do so.


Do you provide food?

We do not cook on the premises  If you would like your party catered, we have several wonderful caterers to choose from. Or you can order from one of the local restaurants. They are all wonderful! 


Can I buy a gift certificate?

Absolutely!  Call us for details!  Or go to the gift certificate page and order one online.
