I can’t draw a stick figure! Are you sure I can do this?
Absolutely! Our experienced instructors provide step-by-step instruction throughout your party. We take the time to walk around, answer questions, and help with technique. We encourage an open mind and patience with yourself. Our goal is for you to have fun and take home artwork you’ll be proud to show off.
How do I register for a class?

What is the cost of an event, what is included, and how long will it last?
Costs depend on your project selection. Please see our Tippsy Events page if signing up for a current class, or contact us to for a quote if you wish to schedule your own event. Prices include a 2 to 4 hour class with professional instruction, all art supplies (aprons, brushes, easels, canvases/wood, palettes and paint), complete set up and clean up.
Can I pay at the door?
If you would like to pay at the door, please email or call the studio to make arrangements. Your seats are not guaranteed or secured without payment. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the event for check-in and payment.
Do I need to pay right away?
Yes. All events (both private and open parties) require preregistration and payment through our secure website. We’ll happily accept credit card payments via phone.
When should I arrive for an event?
Studio doors will open 20 minutes prior to your event to allow you to find a seat, grab a drink and get social. Seating is first come, first serve, and we will start painting ON TIME. Latecomers will be responsible for getting themselves caught up so it does not interfere with the rest of the class. Events will stay within their window of scheduled time.
What do I need to bring?
Just you! We supply aprons, cups, napkins, plates and art materials. Come as you are, relax and enjoy!
Are there open paint classes available?
Yes. Please check our monthly calendar for available days, times and project. Don’t like the project? You’re free to paint what you like, you just won’t receive the 1:1 instruction as the rest of the class.
What should I wear?
We recommend comfortable clothes and shirts that allow sleeves to be rolled to elbow length. Although we provide aprons, water-based acrylic paints become water-resistant when dry, so wear clothing you don’t mind getting a little painterly – just in case!
Can I bring my own alcoholic beverages?
No. BYOB is not legal in the State of Ohio. Our licensing requires that all available beverages be provided or sold by Studio 14/Tippsy Art Parties. All guests wishing to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages must be 21 and present a valid I.D. at check in. We can fulfill requests for certain brands with a 7 (seven) day notice.
(For those who don’t drink, we also have water and a limited number of non-alcoholic options available for purchase.
Please note there are NO alcohol sales on Sunday.
Can I tip my artist for doing a great job?
Absolutely! Of course, tips are not mandatory, but if you feel that your artist deserves a tip, then please do. Our artists spend many hours behind the scenes preparing for your event. Tip jars are located on the bar and are much appreciated!
Do you offer gift cards?
YES! Gift cards are available here and make great gifts for any occasion.
