Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What are your store hours?

A. Our studio closed September 2014. Sad??? NOT AT ALL!!! This gives Paint Palooza an Opportunity to serve more of the San Antonio and surrounding areas in New and Exciting Venues!! Public Event Locations, Dates, and Times may be found online at

Q. How does this Sip-N-Paint concept work?

A. If the venue is a restaurant or bar, you may not bring outside food or beverages, unless the establishment has authorized it. Other Venue types might allow you to bring your beverage and snacks to enjoy during your painting sessions. More information regarding ‘How It Works’ may be found at .

Q. Can I bring my child for private painting lessons?

A. While our customers may pick up painting techniques we use, Paint Palooza is not an art school. We will teach our customers to paint the paintings we offer in a group environment. If you require formal instruction, we will be happy to see if we can coordinate with our instructors for an hourly rate of pay.

Q. If I bring in a picture to paint during Open Studio, will I get instruction on how to paint it?

A. We no longer have Open Studio since the studio has closed. We hope to get a new home in the near future and may be able to accommodate a schedule for Open Studio again. Thanks to all our Open Studio patrons!

Q. What should I bring?

A. Bringing a friend always helps to enjoy the experience; however, it is not required. We provide all the painting supplies, including canvas, paint, brushes, aprons, etc. Please see for more information about what we supply.

Q. Some of your paintings look too hard to paint, even with instructions. What if my painting doesn’t turn out like the instructor’s painting?

A. Good Question!! Many of our customers wonder the same thing. We provide step-by-step instructions, but also allow customers to add to or change their painting if they don’t want theirs to look just like the instructor’s painting. We like originality, which often times turns out better than our own!!! We want you to love your painting AND have a great time when you’re here!!! However, if after you get home, you see something you want to change in your painting, you may come to another public paint event and we will help you fix anything that you don’t just love about it. Keep in mind, you need to give yourself some time and distance yourself from your painting for a day or two so you can view your painting in a different light. If you still need to fix something, call us to advise what event you would like to bring your painting in to make some changes (at no cost, of course).

Q. What should I wear?

A. It is recommended that you wear very casual clothes, as an occasional paint brush may find its way to your clothing, unintentionally of course!! (or maybe not if your friend has a grudge because your painting looks better than theirs!! )

Q. What if I am running late to a session?

A. We ask that our painters arrive 15 minutes early to check in for the event, select your seating, get your apron on, and get your snacks & drinks ready. Our sessions start on time. If you are running 5 or 10 minutes late, please have your friend / painting buddy catch you up when you arrive. We will attempt to help you as much as possible, but arriving more than 15 or 20 minutes late may be a challenge to catch up.

Q. Can I book a private party for my child’s birthday?

A. We will work with you on dates and times for when we can book parties, based on our scheduled sessions, and instructor availability. Currently, a minimum of 8 painters is required to book a party in an available time slot. We recommend booking children’s parties during the weekend daytimes, or during some school holidays and summer break, when day sessions are available.

Q. What if I don’t want to paint the painting being instructed?

A. We allow our customers to paint outside the box (but on your canvas), however, you will receive limited assistance outside the instructed painting. There may be an additional cost to paint certain paintings during a lower priced session.
