Frequently Asked Questions
Am I signing up for an art class or a party? It’s a class that FEELS like a party. Bring your own beverage, and we’ll handle the rest.
What is More Chicks Painting instruction like? Our instructors are experienced artists who love to paint, love to teach, and want you to have a fun and enriching class. They’ll guide you step-by-step through the process of recreating the night’s featured painting from your own unique point of view. We provide all supplies, including art apron, acrylic paints, brushes and a ready-to-hang stretched canvas (typically 16”x20”).
What if I have no artistic ability? First, see FIBs and review The Chicks Creed. Now relax. Your instructor will support your progress throughout the session. We think you’ll be surprised by what you can do….
What if I want to paint something other than the featured painting?
Go for it! You may choose from a binder filled with copies of our original paintings and selected master works. You’re also welcome to paint the featured piece in a different color palette to suit your taste or décor. (If you do take a different path, please keep in mind we can give you pointers, but our focus will be teaching the feature.)
What if I already know how to paint? Excellent! Come join the party. Feel free to paint along with the group or take off in your own direction—you won’t be restricted in any way.
Will More Chicks Painting provide food and drinks?
We supply light snacks, you bring your own beverage—wine, beer, liquor, soft drinks, coffee, tea, whatever you’re in the mood for. We provide glasses, corkscrews, openers, ice and ice buckets.
