Frequently Asked Questions
What is Swirls?
Swirls LLC is a mobile paint and wine, beer, or cocktails event where you can be creative, laugh with friends and relax, all in a location near you.
Where is your studio?
We don't have one. We have partnered with local wineries, breweries and bars to host these fun events. This way you get a chance to experience their great wines, crafts, and fun atmosphere while creating an awesome painting that you take home with you.
What if I don't know how to paint or it's been a really long time?
That's ok. Our artists will guide you step by step to create a painting that you love. We want this to be a fun and relaxing experience, and hopefully it will continue the inspiration to paint.
What should I expect from the class?
A fun night out, and a painting you can show off to others, saying, "I painted it!" Enjoy a beverage or two from the local establishment, relax and have a great time. The class will be approximately 2 hours.
What do I need to bring?
Yourself and some friends, if you wish. A "right brain" attitude, and be ready for some fun. We will provide all of the necessary supplies.
What is the cost to paint with Swirls?
Typically $20-$45, depending on the class, day of the week, and the painting. Please check our calendar page for specific pricing. Please inquire with us for private and corporate party rates.
What is included in the price?
16x20 canvas, aprons, brushes and paint to use for the painting. Beverages and snacks are available for purchase from the local establishment.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
We typically are limited on space at the local establishments, so signing up in advance is the best way to guarantee your spot. If you check the website ahead of time, and there are still spots available, we can take payment on site as well.
Can I sit with my friends?
Feel free to contact us prior to the event with the number in your party, and we will do our best to make sure you all have a great experience together. Typically, two's can sit together pretty easily.
What time should I arrive?
Please plan to arrive 15-30 minutes before the start of the event. This will give everyone time to get settled, grab a beverage and get the creative energy flowing.
How long is a class?
Most classes will be 2 hours. We may have 3 hour classes available as well, but will be clearly stated on the calendar page.
What is your cancellation policy?
We will gladly offer a full refund for public events if cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled event. Deposits for private and corporate events are non-refundable.
How do I get a cocktail or food from a mobile concept?
Feel free to purchase drinks and snacks from the local establishment we're partnered with.
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting paint on. We use acrylic paints that typically clean out easily, but we are not responsible for any paint damage to clothing. Aprons are provided.
Where do you get the artwork you base your instruction on?
We feel painting original artwork is important for our brand. Our artists are either out shooting original photography, or we may be inspired by something we see, but recreate in a way that is ours.
Do I have to paint the featured painting?
No, we want this experience to be personalized to your style. If you would like to change the colors and make it your own, feel free. We will have a portfolio of other options to choose from as well. We will offer any assistance for the painting that is the best fit for your style and personality.
If I come with my significant other, do we have to paint the same image?
Definitely not. We will work with you to get a great painting that can be hung together.
Are children allowed to the events?
In most cases, yes. It really depends on the local establishment that's hosting our event. Please see our locations page and check out their policy on children.
Does Swirls do private parties?
Absolutely! We want to be part of your next life celebration. Please contact us for private party dates and location.
Does Swirls do fundraising events?
Definitely. We encourage fundraising events, and happy to be philanthropic with you. Please contact us for dates, location and details.
