Frequently Asked Questions


 
1. What can I expect?

You can expect to have the time of your life! You do not need to bring anything! Your art supplies will be set up and ready for you when you arrive. You'll even have aprons to wear! It's open seating so get there early to grab you favorite spot. Our events are at different venues around town or at our studio, so read the details on your order page for specific info on the event, location, time, date and etc. Some parties are BYOB, while others events you may need to pay for food and drinks at the bar. You will be guided by a talented artist who will make your night fun and entertaining. Events last from 2.5-3 hours. At our studio byob and food are welcome!



2. Cancellation

If this is a private event or fundraiser the host's deposit will be non-refundable and the host will refund the guest's money, if applicable. If this is a public event and we cancel it for whatever reason, guests will be notified via email no less than 24 hours in advance and will have choice of a refund or gift voucher. Creative Clinic Center reserves the right to cancel and event where we feel it is unclean, unsafe or inappropriate for guests. 



3. Do I need to have painting experience?

No Experience Necessary!!! 98% of our guests have absolutely no artistic background. A talented and experienced artist will walk you through a handful of simple steps and meanwhile you can enjoy painting and chatting with your friends. There is absolutely no pressure and we aim to make your experience so fun you can't wait to come back!



4. How can I promote my private or fundraiser event?

Private and fundraiser events are the host's responsibility to promote and collect ticket sales. If a large party is expected we may ask for installments of the tickets sales, this allows us to pre-pay for supplies needed for party. For optimal success we recommend giving yourself 3-4 weeks to get the word out. You will decide on a painting that we recommend or you can tell us a theme you like. We will email you a link to your order page. We encourage you to share this link via email, Facebook, and any other social media channels. If you like we can email you a flyer of your event (for free!) that you can print out or distribute however you wish. We also can promote your event on "our" Facebook and Twitter page too, this is complimentary as well.



5. How do I sign up and pay?

We require all guests to pay for their tickets online for public parties. We accept all major credit cards.  Just click on the class of your choice and ADD TO CART the number of tickets you would like and follow the checkout procedure. You will be processed through PayPal but do not worry, you DO NOT need a PayPal account to complete the payment process. If you can not pay online please call Gina Perry at 614.256.7777.
