The Paint Parties at the Griffin:

I can hardly draw stick figures. So, why would I want a painting party?
You are exactly who we want to come! You will discover your hidden talents and have a blast while you do it. Even if you are not Michel Angelo, you will still make a great looking painting. Elisabeth will guide you! You will work with a pre-sketched canvas.

Do I have to paint the same painting as everyone in the group? 

You don’t have to but it is really fun to all paint the same painting and see how different they all turn out. If you have your own party you can choose your own painting, but we need 48 hours to sketch all the paintings.

How many people do I need to have a party?
Minimum is 6 and maximum 30.

How big is the canvas?
Usually we paint on canvases 11×14″ and 9×12″ for the pet portraits.

Are You Handicapped Accessible?

Yes we are.

How long is the party? 
Typically a party runs about two hours.

What time should I arrive? 
You can arrive 30 minutes before the party to get your drinks and snacks ready. The party will begin promptly to make sure there is time to finish the paintings.

What should I wear?
Dress comfortably. Wear something that allows you to be messy! You can use one of our smocks.

What do we bring?
We provide everything you will need for the painting project: canvas, brushes, palettes, paint, aprons and help from us along the way. We also have serving platters, plates, bowls and serving spoons. We also have limited cups, napkins and cutlery from past parties.

Can we bring wine?
Yes, bring your favorite wine. Legally, you must be 21 years old to consume alcoholic beverages. Please have your ID with you.

Where can I park?
There is street parking, free free on 5th St and meters on Market St, free on Sundays.
What type of paint is used?
We use non toxic fast drying acrylic paint.

Will my painting be dry when I leave?
It depends on how thick the paint is but most probably it will be dry.

How do I register?
You can call 443-520-2033 for your private parties. For the scheduled ones you can pay with Paypal on the website.

Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept credit cards, cash or checks.

What if I need to cancel my party?

We would like to know as soon as possible and reimburse you minus handling costs with cancellations 48 hours in advance. Unfortunately after that timeline we cannot grant refunds.

What if I did not finish my painting?
Call to schedule another date and time for you to bring your painting back to finish. However, most people do finish in the allotted time.


The paint and wine events in local bars:

How do I sign up for a paint and wine event in a local bar?

There will be a post on this website with the information about registration, time and length of the event, as well as what painting we will be painting. Registration for these events is usually at the bar/restaurant.


Mother and Daughter Paint out – Father and Son Paint out

These events are a little bit more creative. With guidance you can make your own painting. We usually have a theme, but feel free to paint whatever you feel like. These events are really enjoyable. It’s so much fun to be creative with your kids and encourage each other in the creative process. You both go home with a big smile on your face and a painting of your own. Great story to tell.
