BEFORE I ATTEND...
What should I bring? - For Public Events, you are not required to bring anything! For Private Events, Corporate Events, and Fundraisers you are responsible for your decorations, alcohol, tables, chairs, music, food, the venue (if your event is not at a public venue), and anything else needed to bring your event together.
What if there is inclement weather? - If there is a high chance for inclement weather in the area, the event may be cancelled. We will send you an email the day of the event regarding the status. In the event of a cancellation, you will be refunded your full ticket amount.
Can someone paint in my place? - Yes. Just have them give the instructor the name you used to confirm your reservation.
What should I wear? - We recommend attire that you would not mind getting paint on.
When should I arrive? - We recommend arriving 20-30 minutes before the designated start time so that you have enough time to sign in, mingle, order food/drinks, and secure your preferred seat(s).
DURING MY ATTENDANCE...
Where do I go when I arrive? - Upon arrival, if you do not see our paint session set-up, tell a venue employee that you are an Ardestri participant, and they will direct you towards our location.
Does the paint stain? - Yes. Acrylic paint can stain clothing if it is not washed out with soap and water immediately.
