PRIVATE PARTIES Do you have a group of 8 or more people who would like to get together for a colorful, fun time of socializing, painting, and laughing... Maybe drinking a little Vino as you Vango along the way? Book an exclusive private party at our studio: Gather, munch, sip, laugh, and create a masterpiece to take home! Everyone paints the same thing at the same time. The results are amazing! Check out our Class Photos - see for yourself!
Booking Your Party
HOW: Simply click on the blue button; you'll put down your deposit first, which will serve as your ticket (see DEPOSIT, below). You'll then be directed to the Private Party Request page to submit your party information. Your party link will be sent to you within a maximum of 2 business days (though typically a few hours) so that you may forward to your guests, enabling super easy registration!
PAINTING: Peruse our Gallery for a painting; feel free to check class photos and our Facebook page, too, as there may be paintings represented that are not in our current Gallery rotation. You do not need to know your painting at time of booking; just let us know 3-4 days before your party so we may schedule the best artist instructor for you. It's best to secure your spot quickly and figure out the painting later should you be undecided.
DATE: Private Parties can be held just about any date and time based on availability. We utilize our sister business' studio (the Malerische Galerie, next door) enabling us book three (onsite) parties at a time!
The deposit is used to hold the date, time, and space for your party. The deposit (and nothing else) will be charged on your card at the time of booking, and it will cover your party registration (as the "organizer"). If the minimum of 8 painters is not met, you may be charged the difference. If you are uncertain you can meet the minimum, please consider bringing your group into any of our many Public Classes.
Cost & Payment
Private Parties for 8-11 painters cost $40 per person. 12+ painter parties are $35 per person. Onsite parties are typically 2.5 hours long. For Off - Site Parties, please connect with us; while typically $50 per person, distance and number of attendees may affect this rate. OLCC compliance, etc., must be confirmed for any off - site locations.
**if less than 8 painters attend, the organizer will be charged to make up the difference. If you have less than 8, please consider bringing your group to one of our many Public Classes scheduled each month.
Guests MAY pay at the door as long as we know, in advance, that they are coming. We reserve the right to charge a $5 per person "surprise guest" fee. We encourage you to have your invitees pay online, in advance to help ensure your minimum is reached.
Please update us if the expected number of guests changes; also, feel free to check in with us regarding party guest registrations. Please provide a guest list (if not paid in advance) the evening prior to your party.
PLEASE NOTE: Any payments due Vino & Vango for your event must be made before it begins. If any per painter price tier break refunds are due, these may be paid to the party organizer via our website, check, or cash. This process has been put in place to ensure transaction accuracy. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation!
Our main studio gallery seats 32 painters, while our new "Studio 2" seats 18. Our new sister business, the Malerishe Galerie, seats 15. Large parties may reserve two - or all three! - spaces for extra large events.
