Frequently Asked Questions
What is Art by the Glass?
Art by the Glass is a mobile paint and sip art studio! We will bring everything you need to throw a memorable painting pARTy at your home, including tables, stools, and all the painting supplies.
What do I need to provide?
If you are having the pARTy at your home, all you need is to provide the space, and whatever snacks and drinks you would like for the evening. We will provide everything else to create a memorable night with paint!
I want to throw a private pARTy, but don’t want to do it at home…?
That’s okay! We have a few venues working with us at the moment that you can select from to make the pARTy planning simpler. If there is a venue not listed that you would like to throw the pARTy at, please let us know and we will contact them to make sure there are no conflicts.
Do you offer Painting Parties for Kids?
What paintings do you offer?
We have over a hundred paintings to choose from, and you can view them at our gallery. If there is something you would like to see that we haven’t thought of yet, let us know! We would love to hear suggestions on what you would like to see.
Do you offer any food or drinks?
Unless you choose to have a private pARTy at one of the venues listed above, the drinks and food are up to you to bring.
What should I wear?
Even though we provide an apron (and tarps to cover your floors), we suggest you wear clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting a little paint on. Creativity can sometimes get messy, and paint is very hard to get out of clothes!
I have never painted; will I be able to do this?
Our classes are geared to the novice painter (i.e. those that have never picked up a brush!). Our instructors keep a slow, but steady pace with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, and you will have a beautiful painting by the end of the night.
Can I keep my painting?
You paint it; you keep it! Hang it on your wall or give someone special a one-of-a-kind gift made especially by you.
What if I don’t have enough people to meet the minimum requirement of people for a private pARTy?
Check out our promotions to see if we are offering anything at the time to help you out! If you are just a few short, just let us know. Drop us a line– We understand it can be hard to gather a big party of people together, and we would love to work with you.
Why is the calendar blank?
Our calendar will sometimes be blank, or no classes will be showing. This is only because during that month we are not holding any public classes. But our schedule is always open for private pARTies.
Can I bring my kids?
We would suggest leaving the kiddos behind if attending a class at one of our alcohol-serving venues. However, if this is a private pARTy you’ve set up, then please feel free to let your little ones attend! We don’t mind! We also throw some great children’s birthday parties!
How much does it cost?
Public class pricing can range from $25 to $50, depending on the type of class and if there are any drink vouchers or food vouchers included. These prices will be listed when you take a look at the class.
How much does a private pARTy cost?
Our Mobile Private Parties are $35 a painter, and requires a minimum of 8 or more painters (although check our special deals to see what we’re offering at the time). This includes all the supplies you will need (canvas, brushes, paint, aprons, easels, etc). We will even supply tables and stools if you need, or we can just bring a tarp and tablecloths to protect your furniture. We do require about 30 minutes to set up (at no extra cost) before the guests begin to arrive.
We do not charge a traveling fee if going to the northern Austin area, Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock, Hutto, Pflugerville, or Georgetown. If you are further out than these locations, please give us a call so we can determine the traveling fee.
What type of classes do you offer?
We offer a wide array of different and unique classes. We have traditional Canvas Painting, Canvas Word Art, Wine Bottle Painting, Paint-your-Pet, Stylized Portraits, Open Paint, Date Night paintings, and more. All these classes are available for Private pARTies, however our specialty classes like Paint Your Pet and Stylized Portraits may cost a little more per painter.
Where do I sign up?
You can check our calendar for classes available to sign up, or fill out our Private pARTy Inquiry form to get started in signing up for an awesome private pARTy.
You will need a credit card to reserve your class. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and Amex. If you choose not to pay online, please call the studio (512-763-5045); credit cards are used to guarantee the reservation and you can pay differently when you check-in for your class.
Hopefully we answered all your questions, however feel free to drop us a line if you have any more! We love to hear from our customers!
