Private Painting Parties: How it works...

Session Details

Bridal Shower


When planning a special party, try something unique and so much fun for everyone.  A wine and paint party where everyone takes home their own special memento of the event.  There’s no mess to clean up. We supply the utensils, paint, brushes, easels, aprons, a pre-drawn 16″ x 20″canvas and full instruction.  You BYOB and Food.  That’s it! What a super party!! People will talk about it long after it’s over and you will be thanked and remembered as a super party planner!  At our private parties people under 21 may attend, but of course, they can’t drink.  At our public parties, they aren’t allowed.  So this helps you be more flexible with your invitations and planning.

Birthday parties, Bachlorette parties, Bridal & Baby showers, Reunions, Fundraisers, Team Building workshops, Anniversaries, Retirement parties, or for any other party reason!

We have plain white paper plates, napkins, plasticware, cork screws, a Keurig coffee maker, water dispenser, coffee, tea, plastic glasses, and hot cups.  If you want something more colorful or fancy or real wine glasses, you will need to provide them. Whatever the occasion, we will give your party the stress free fun for you and your guests.

Painting parties are 2 to 3 hours long, depending on the painting and number of people.


Standard pricing is $35.00 + tax per person for most paintings offered (some paintings take longer and are priced at $45.+tax per person), Sunday through Wed. evenings and daytime hours any day of the week. For evening slots on Fri/Sat/Sun (any time 5 PM or later), it is $40.00 or $50 + tax, (depending on the painting chosen) per person. Any parties of 8 or less can be accommodated during our normal public painting parties at the listed price for the class scheduled at that time.

If you wish to have additional time for your event (gift opening, etc.), you may do so for an additional $50.00 per hour. If you want to come early and decorate, we will work with you as much as possible, if it is not conflicting with another class time. If decorating takes longer than an hour, we will need to charge a fee of $20./hr for every hour after the initial hour.

If you would like a special themed painting designed that does not appear on our standard gallery of paintings, we will be more than happy to design one, at a fee of $100-$300, depending on the complexity.  Also, if it is a painting that can be used for other parties, we won’t charge you any extra fee. But if it specific to the party, you keep the original for $300.

For off-site parties, there will be a set up and clean up fee $100 to $150 depending on location and number of people.

Off-site events require a minimum of 10 people and start at $35.00 per person.

Private parties in our studio require a minimum of 10 people.

SPECIAL BONUS: If the host of the party gathers more than 15 people (not including the host!) for the party, the host will be FREE!

A $150 deposit (minimum of 10 person party) or $250 deposit (15+ person party) will be required at the time of booking. Refunds will ONLY be given if cancelled 2 weeks prior to the event date. Final payment will be due 7 days prior to the event date, along with a total head count.  If you REALLY want a private party and have less than 10 people who plan on coming, you may pay the total minimum amount due for the party ($350 + tax).

When to have it

We can do private parties any time we don’t already have something scheduled. You can see all of our scheduled public and private events on our event calendar here. Please keep in mind that we will fill in the future months with public events if the days appear to be somewhat empty.

Types of Parties



Bunny fun




      Kids’ Parties

 Brush & Cork is perfect for kids’ parties! They are natural Picassos! They’ve been to the bowling alley, they’ve been to the movies, they’ve been to picnics…Nothing like Brush & Cork! We are fresh, creative, and tons of fun! Pricing starts at $30. per child. We suggest the minimum age of the children to be 7. We also suggest that the number of children equal the birthday child’s age. The younger the child, the smaller the party, the better the experience for all the kids. We will work with you to customize the event.


Haeger1Work Events

Uncork team spirit! Painting your way to a strong, creative workplace, by rewarding a great team, or creating a group painting of the company logo for the lunch room wall, or maybe you just need to blow off some steam after working hard towards a large project. For whatever reason, Brush & Cork will work with you to customize a unique experience tailored perfectly to your group.

       Fundraising Events

Brush & Cork believes that it cannot survive without a thriving community. And to that end we are committed to Painting It Forward. Let us help you host a painting event to raise awareness and funds for something that you care about.   Typically, you can charge as much over B & C’s usual prices and donate that part to your charity and B & C will donate 10% of proceeds to your 501(c) nonprofit organization. Contact us for planning and details at or 209-533-4542.




Until we get a few parties under our belts, please call us at 533-4542 or email us at with your name, email address, several preferences for your party dates, your phone number, and any requests that you would like to paint for your party…and we will come up with something super wonderful for your party to paint.
