What if I've never painted before?

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. You’re not alone. Most customers that attend the sesh’s have never picked up a brush in their life or since grade school.

The instructor will give you step by step instructions as well as any personal one on one attention you might need. Therefore you can leave any negative vibes at the door, and get creative with some paint. You might just surprise yourself! We promise that you’re in good hands.

Don’t take our word for it, see what our lovely customers said about us.

Where is The Paint Sesh located?

The Paint Sesh’s office is based in Riverside, CA. At this time we are only a mobile painting event business and currently do not have our own painting studio.

However, we travel all over Southern California to different venues in different cities including: Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire and San Diego surrounding areas.

What if I just want to attend 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!

What should I wear?

Since you will be painting with acrylics (which are plastic-based paints) its better to be safe than sorry. 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.

Can I get a REFUND?

No. Sorry, all sales are final and CAN NOT BE REFUNDED. The Paint Sesh is a live entertainment event much like a concert which depends on pre-paid seats to hold the class. If you can’t make it, we recommend gifting the tickets to a friend or family member.

 

*When you purchase a ticket you are complying with our Cancellation Policy and our Terms & Conditions

Do you sell gift certificates?

Yes, you can purchase physical Gift Cards or E-Gift Cards.

What if the event I want to attend says it's SOLD OUT?

Unfortunately there are no other seats available for the events that say they are “Sold Out.” Once an event is sold out we reached maximum capacity for that particular event.

It is our mission to make sure that everyone has a comfortable painting experience. One person makes a difference in the way we arrange our set-up and can effect everyone else’s experience. Since we don’t offer refunds, we tend to not have “no shows” and do not have a wait list.

We always recommend booking in advance. Thank you for understanding.

Do I have to pay online or can I pay in person on the day of the event?

We suggest purchasing your tickets online, in advance. We can’t guarantee that will be extra spots available, especially since our events tend to sell out.

*Promos or Discounts  can only be used on tickets purchased online.

How do I use my VOUCHER that I received from a Third-Party Website?

If you purchased a voucher from another third-party website, you would just check out as you would normally through our site. Don’t worry you won’t be charged.

  1. You would just find the event you’d like to sign up for.
  2. Where it says “Coupon Code” you would apply your Redemption Code. Which is a series of 8 capital letters/numbers, that the 3rd-party website gave you.
  3. You’re all set! You should have received a confirmation email after you finished the checkout process. See you at the event!

I never got sent a confirmation email with my ticket after I purchased a seat to an event?

First, double check your email inbox sometimes it can end up in your spam or promotions folder. If you still don’t see an email make sure that you have used the correct email when you first purchased your ticket. If everything was filled out correctly get in touch with us via email.

*Keep in mind, we don’t need your ticket to check you in. We will only need the first and last name of whom ever purchased the ticket, on the day of the event. No ticket necessary.

Do I need to print my ticket?

No, printing necessary. You can have the ticket that was emailed to you, pulled up on your mobile device if you’d like when we check you in. But we don’t need your ticket to check you in. We will only need the first and last name of whom ever purchased the ticket, on the day of the event.
