Where is The Paint Sesh located?
The Paint Sesh’s headquarters is based in Riverside, CA. But since we are a mobile painting event company we travel all over Southern California to different venues in different cities including: Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire and San Diego surrounding areas.
I never painted before, is that ok?
Yes! The Paint Sesh was designed to help you get out of your element and unleash your creative side, even if you think you don’t have one. Most customers that attend the sesh’s have never picked up a brush in their life (or since grade school) so you won’t feel alone! The instructor will give you step by step instructions as well as any personal one on one you might need so you can leave any negative vibes at the door, and get loose with some paint, you might just surprise yourself!
How much does The Paint Sesh cost?
Most of our public events are between $35-45 per person depending on the night, the location and the painting. Please check the upcoming events and particular event for the cost. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the best deals!!
(*Note: We do NOT include any drinks or cannabis in the price.)
What is included in the price?
We provide a talented Instructor/Entertainer, *Canvases, Paint, Brushes, Easels, Aprons and fun music. Refreshments, food, cannabis and alcohol are not included in the cost. However food and drinks can be purchased separately at the venue before, after, or during the event!
(*Sometime we paint on other surface such as wine glasses, totes, etc.)
How long do the sesh’s last?
Most our sesh’s last for 2 hours (unless stated otherwise.) Please be on time and be understanding of the end time. Sometimes we have back to back events and since we go to other venues for our events we have to mindful of the venue’s time as well.
I don't see any events scheduled on a particular date I'd like to attend, are there any more?
The only events scheduled are the one we have on our Events page. We promise we aren’t hiding any events from you. 😉
Do you take photos at the events?
Yes, we love taking photos and sharing them on social media! Our artists come equipped with a DSLR camera, so throughout your event we’ll be snapping photos of your group while you’re creating your masterpieces. We usually do a big group shot at the end of the painting session and will always take personal photos of you and your friends if asked. Typically after a paint party, we’ll upload the photos to our The Paint Sesh Event Photos Page and on our Facebook page on the next business day and we encourage you to share and like the photos with your family and friends. We also encourage our guests to take their own photos and videos with their cell phones or digital cameras and help spread The Paint Sesh love on social media. When posting on social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram), please use #ThePaintSesh to show your love and support.
For any reason, if you do not want to be included in any photos, please let us know at the start of the event and we’ll make sure not to include you in any photos and will do our best to crop you out of the photos before posting on social media. We respect your privacy and understand your desire to not be included.
What if I just want to attend a class, to paint and not follow along?
Not only do we promote that kind of creativity, we strongly encourage you to do so! No one should be told what they can and can’t paint that defeats the whole purpose of letting loose and embracing your creative free-spirit self! As long as your happy we’re happy!
I missed a painting that I really want to paint! Will you be teaching it again?
Is there a Cancellation Policy?
Transfers, cancellations, or any other changes must be made 48 hours prior to class to receive a credit for a future event. Refunds will not be provided. Please visit our Cancellation Policy page to get all of the deets.
What is a Paint and Puff Event?
Paint and puff events or “sesh’s” as we like to call them are 420-friendly and allow cannabis to be present. Cannabis is not included in the cost so B.Y.O.C. (Bring Your Own Cannabis.) To comply with local regulations for cannabis-friendly events, this is a BYOC event. Please feel free to bring your own Cannabis goodies (and your own glass pieces/rolling papers etc.) for yourself or to share. Bring your budz to one of our upcoming Paint and Puff sesh’s.
(Hint: The Paint Sesh events with a marijuana leaf icon are the Paint and Puff sesh’s.)
What is a Paint and Sip Event?
Paint and Sip Events or, “sesh’s” as we call them, are drinking sesh’s. Therefore alcohol isn’t only allowed but strongly encouraged! Cannabis is not allowed at our paint and sip sesh’s unless stated otherwise. (but that doesn’t mean you can’t partake before the sesh.) Come have some fun at one of our Paint and Sip “sesh’s”.
Hint: (The Paint Sesh events with a cocktail glass icon are our Paint and Sip Events.)
Must be 21+ to attend with a state issued picture ID.
Remember, not to drink and drive, if you need a ride make sure to get a Lyft.
Use our referral for $5 towards your first ride with Lyft with referral code: THEPAINTSESH
What is the age requirement to attend a public sesh?
In order to comply with local regulations all our public events are for ages 21+. Some of the Paint & Sip Venues are at bars which are also 21+. Must have a valid state issued ID (I.D.’s will be checked at venue)
If you’re 21 and younger and still want to paint and party, our at home private painting parties are the perfect option for you!
How do I register for a public class?
Go to the sesh’s page that has the upcoming events and select a painting or date of your choosing, and enter the required information. All reservations are paid online in advance.
When should I sign up for my class?
Because of limited seating, signing up in advance is definitely recommended. You can register on the website by going to our calendar, select the event you wish to attend and click sign up. If an event is sold out, please email us at email@example.com with the details, if you want to be put on our waiting list. Due to last minute cancellations, theres always a chance you can paint with us!
Do you allow walk-in customers?
Yes we do, but we can’t always guarantee that there will be any spots available, therefore we always encourage for you to book your ticket online and in advanced. (We do not accept any promos in person.)
What time do I need to arrive for an event?
Check-in starts 30 minutes before each event and seats are first come first serve. We suggest arriving early to get registered and get the seat of your choice (especially if you have a larger party.)
What should I wear?
Since you will be painting with acrylics which are plastic-based paints its better to be safe than sorry, so we definitely recommend for customers to wear clothes that they wouldn’t mind getting paint on! (especially if you’re as messy as our instructor!)
Do you offer any promos?
The Paint Sesh loves hooking up our customers, therefore we are constantly giving out deals! To make sure you’re getting the best discount be sure to sign up for our Newsletter or follow us on Instagram.
Do I need to print my ticket?
No, so don’t waste any paper or ink. We just ask that you have the ticket that was emailed to you, pulled up on your mobile device to make check-in as fast as possible.
