Frequently Asked Questions
What is your capacity for your public classes?
IMPORTANT CLASS INFORMATION: For your continued safety and comfort, class sizes are being limited to 90% capacity. (This allows for 60 seats in our main room and up to 30 seats in our party room.) If you purchase multiple seats in your reservation or request to sit with someone in the seating requests, you will be seated together with your group. Due to the limited seating, all guests must have a reservation to enter the studio. Masks are no longer required to be worn in the studio, however we recommend mask wearing if you are not fully vaccinated. PLEASE NOTE: We have acrylic dividers available if you wish to have additional separation between you and other guests. Please ask or note in your reservation if you would like to have an acrylic divider available to you.
Is there an age limit for the regular public class?
Yes, we are a BYOB art entertainment studio. We do have kid’s specific classes, but the normal public classes have the following requirements: 11 to 17 years old with an adult -18 years old and up. No children under the age of 11 are able to attend a class, with/without a reservation. Any of our morning or afternoon classes are ages 5 and older with adult supervision. In all of our classes, with the exception of little brushes classes, a reservation is required for all attendees to attend.
How do I sign up for a public class?
Signing up is easy. Click the "Event Calendar" link at the top of the page to view our calendar of paintings. Select which painting you would like to paint and click "Add Painting to Cart."

What does a class cost?
Our two-hour public classes are typically $38 per painter and our three-hour public classes are $45 per painter. Please note that we also offer specialty classes as well as fundraisers, alternate pricing may be applicable.
What are the best times to reach the studio with questions, changes in reservations, party information, etc?
The best time to reach a studio manager is Monday through Friday 11am until 5 pm. Unfortunately, we are unable to answer phones during class times. You are welcome to leave a message and a studio manager will reach out the next morning after 11am.
Can I bring a friend or child with me to just sit and not paint?
Unfortunately we do not allow people to attend our painting classes without a reservation. (Unless it is a parent helping their child paint.)
When should I arrive for class?
We encourage you to arrive 30 minutes before class starts to allow time for you to get settled and mingle with other painters before class begins.
What is the cancellation policy?
Due to the custom nature of our classes, ALL reservation sales are FINAL. However, if you need to change your painting reservation with more than 24 hours notice, you can receive credit to use within 45 days or you may transfer to another class that we have posted on our calendar. If it is less than 24 hours notice, loss of reservation will occur. Please email Leawood@PinotsPalette.com with any questions. For all PRIVATE PARTY deposits, there is a 2 week prior notice required to cancel. If it's less than that, the deposit will be forfeited, or you can move the party with at least a weeks' notice. Every party gets one date change, if a second date change is required, deposit will be forfeited. For our SPECIALTY CLASSES, all reservation sales are FINAL. However, if you need to change your reservation with more than 10 days notice, you can receive credit to use within 45 days to transfer towards another specialty class we have posted on our calendar.
What is included with the class fee?
The fee includes all your painting supplies: canvas, paints, brushes, aprons. We also provide glassware, plates and silverware. The fee does not include wine, but please feel free to bring your own or you may purchase wine or beer from our bar.
I don't have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting and will ensure that you stay on track to completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making mistakes easy to fix and perfect.
Can I bring something other than wine? Will there be something to chill white wine in?
You are welcome to bring wine, beer or liquor to Pinot's Palette. There will be a large ice bucket to chill your wine during class. We do expect all painters to be responsible with alcohol on and off premises. We will be checking IDs.
Is there reserved seating?
Yes, we have your easel set up for you at your spot before you arrive for class. If you have friends attending the class that you’d like to sit by, you can let us know when you book the class or you can send us an email (…just make sure to give us at least 24 hours notice).
When does the next month's calendar get posted?
We try to post the next month's calendar around the 15th of the month. If you'd like to receive an email each month when our new calendar is posted, be sure to add yourself to our email list.
