Stuff people want to know before they get here. (FAQ's)
But, what will I wear?
Besides a good time and entertaining instruction, you will enjoy a 16 x 20 canvas, plenty of paint, and quality brushes for your creativity to play with. Theme nights may include unique canvas options, so be sure to explore the description for any event you sign up to enjoy. The Heart Gallery Bar is stocked with snacks, beer, wine and non-alcoholic options for purchase.
Is the Gallery available for private parties and corporate events?
You are more than welcome to bring food, plates and cutlery to the Gallery, or have your event catered. We will provide tables, stools and beverages for purchase.
Do You Take Drop In Guests?
Reservations are required for all public paint n' sip events. However, occasionally the Gallery is home to Happy Little Tree Hour, where up to forty folks can drop in and do some painting.
When should I arrive?
What is the difference between "Night Out" and "Tranquility" sessions?
Music and vibe is where the difference lies. Are you looking for a peaceful excursion with soft music and reflective instruction, then tranquility night is for you. If you are looking for a more raucous experience, book a "night out".
It is best to arrive 15-20 minutes before your session so you can grab a beverage and get all settled in. Instruction will begin at the time listed on your reservation.
What if I don't finish my painting in time?
You are welcome to bring your painting to any Happy Little Tree Hour and continue working on it free of charge.
Absolutely. The Heart Gallery can be all yours. Minimums apply. Add ons available.
What if I need to cancel or change my reservation?
We are happy to reschedule your visit if you are unable to keep your reservation as long as you provide 48 hour notice. Two weeks notice is necessary for changes to group bookings.
Can I leave my painting at the Heart Gallery and pick it up later if it's not dry yet?
Are there dinner options near by?
There are a plethora of dining options within walking distance of the Heart Gallery on both 153rd and 152nd.
Who designed the Heart Gallery Studio
We worked closely with designer, CK Hernandez to create a vibey space that facilitates creativity. Her brilliants ideas run throughout the Heart Gallery!
We can hold your painting up to one week if it is not dry and ready for you at the end of the session.
Why is the Heart Gallery 21 and Over?
Unfortunately, the RCWs do not currently have a liquor license that perfectly fits the paint n' sip model. In lieu of having a one beverage limit or becoming a restaurant, we opted for a license where beer and wine could flow (responsibly).
What is included with the price of admission?
Acrylic paint is user friendly and ridiculously fun to play with. However, it will not come out of clothing. Even if you try really hard and use expensive products created by a super team of chemists assembled by Martha Stewart and her laundry minions. So come in play clothes.
