Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the prices for a class?

A: The price for a 2 hour class is $50.00 (inc. GST) including a beverage. The beverage of lowest value consumed by you throughout your session will be included in the session price. Any additional beverages will be charged at full price. For example: If your first drink is a wine, your second a juice and your third a wine again, you will be charged for the two wines as the juice, being of lowest value, will be free.

Payment is due at the time of the booking to guarantee your seat.

Q: What is the atmosphere of the class like?

A: Light, upbeat and exciting! Check in at reception, grab a seat & choose a drink from our ColourBar! This is a social event, so feel free to mingle with everyone before you settle in to start painting. Our studio provides everything needed for a class. Our artists will take you each step of the way from a blank canvas to a finished masterpiece you created! Remember having a good time is part of the equation and that is why you came!

Photos will be taken during the evening which we upload to our Facebook and other social media pages for you to share with your friends!

Q: Do I need to register?

A: Yes. Visit our CALENDAR page. Select the day and the painting you want to paint and follow the payment directions. You can use a credit card through our website or come by the studio to book a seat.

Q: Does your Studio allow BYO?

A: No, we do not allow customers to bring their own alcohol or non-alcoholic drinks. Water is provided free of charge. We have a selection of beer and wine available for purchase, along with low alcoholic and non-alcoholic choices.

Q: Will my painting be dry by the end of the night?

A: Yes, but if there are a few damp spots feel free to dry them at the drying station.

Q: At what time should I arrive for class?

A: We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes before class start time. This will give you time to check in, choose a drink and grab a seat. Instruction will begin promptly at the designated start time.

Q: What if I am running late to class?

A: If you are more than 15-mins late to the class you will not be allowed to paint and your payment will be forfeited. It is not fair to others who may be distracted by the late arrival or have to wait for you to catch up.

Q: Do you do reserved seating?

A: Yes and you can request that you be seated with friends.

Q: Can we bring food?

A: Yes, if you bring food or snacks you will need to bring your own plates, serviettes and cutlery. Please make sure to clean up any mess afterwards.

Q: What do I wear?

A: Wear what is comfortable and won’t be concerned if a little paint gets on it. We will have aprons for you to wear.

Q: Do you have a Cancellation policy?

A: Yes. Taste for Colour’s Cancellation/Refund policy is non-negotiable due to the nature of the live class. We understand emergencies arise and unexpected events happen, but the Cancellation/Refund policy will be applied without exception. A refund will be given for individuals canceling with at least 48 hours notice. Requests less than 48 hours or “NO SHOWS” will not be issued a refund. No exceptions. Please check weather and traffic conditions prior to your scheduled painting class to ensure your timely arrival. If you are late to the class you may not be allowed to paint, as this is not fair to others who may be distracted by the late arrival or have to wait for you to catch up, therefore your payment will be forfeited. Group reservations of 4 or more must cancel no less than 72 hours for a refund. Please leave a voice message if calling after hours, 09 480 0851.

Q: Do you do private parties?

A: Yes, please see our Private Events page.

Q: What size is the canvas?

A: We use a 40cm x 50cm canvas.

Q: Do you allow walk-ins?

A: Yes, we allow walk-ins on a first come, first served basis. If the class is full, you might not be able to paint. Registering online also allows us to be set up for the number of people attending prior to the class. We recommend that you book online whenever possible.

Q: Do you allow Spectators?

A: No we do not. Sorry to partners or babies that want to watch or be present during class, but this may cause unnecessary distractions during the class to you or others attending.
