We do the rest!  We supply the canvas, paint, brushes, aprons, easels, music and instructor.

Do I need a reservation?

Yes. We need to have a reservation to set up for the class.  If you reserve, i.e. 10 spots for a private party, it is expected that there will be 10 people.  The party host is responsible for paying for “no-shows”.  If you have extra people come we are generally prepared to accommodate extras.

Can we bring food?

Yes, feel free to bring in a snacks, appetizers, catering etc.  We don’t have any way to warm or chill food so keep that in mind when deciding what to bring.

Can I bring my own wine?

Yes, you can bring your beverage of choice: beer, wine, soda, water etc.

Do you provide off-site classes?

Absolutely! We welcome the opportunity to bring creativity to you! We do have a 15 painter minimum and will need to ensure that your facility meets our requirements.  Call us and we can discuss your event in more detail!

What should I wear to Painting class?

We do provide aprons to cover your clothing; however, accidents do happen so keep this in mind when choosing your attire. We encourage you to wear something comfortable, but if paint does get on your clothing, it will be difficult to wash out.

What if I have to cancel my reservation?

If life gives you lemons and you can’t make it to a fab Van Gogh To Go class, we have a nifty Refund and Cancellation Policy

Van Gogh To Go is committed to providing each person with a fantastic and memorable experience at every painting session.  We understand that life happens. If you are unable to attend a session in which you have previously enrolled, kindly give us 48 hours notice by e-mailing info@vangoghtogo.com
 We will issue a refund in the same form the payment was made within 14 days.

* Refunds will not be issued for requests received after the cancellation deadline or for no-shows.

Note: If you are unable to attend an event, and the cancellation deadline has passed, you may transfer your registration to another individual (e.g. a friend, relative, colleague) for the same event (i.e. same date and location).

Van Gogh To Go reserves the right to cancel any class (of course we will do everything in our power to prevent this from happening).  Should this occur, we will alert all registered participants via email or phone in order to reschedule. If the alternative date is not convenient for you, a full refund will be issued.

In the event of inclement weather, classes may be rescheduled or you may request a full refund.

Can I have a private party?

Have an event they’ll talk about!  Having your party at Van Gogh To Go is a unique way for your guests to relax and share a common experience. Painting is fun, calming, and helps enhance communication.  Whatever the group you’re getting together, for whatever occasion, Van Gogh To Go is here to make your party stress free and fun.

Before the painting event, we work closely with you to smooth out all the details. You can be involved in the process as much or as little as your schedule allows.

You must have a min of 8 people to hold a private party.

The actual painting portion of the event lasts about two hours.  Your entire event can last much longer!  It depends on your needs.  Ask us about options for reserving more time to open gifts, eat, watch a presentation, give awards  etc.

You are welcome to bring in your own food and beverages (you set it up and clean it up) or you select your menu and we can handle all of it for you (including set up and clean up.  Additional fees may apply).

You are welcome to bring in your own wine and/or beer to enjoy during your event.

We can accommodate up to 30 people in the studio.

We can bring Van Gogh To Go On The Road to your location.
