How it works

Creative Spirits is set up to be a fun and relaxing time out. We want you to get creative, drink some wine, enjoy the company of good friends and socialize. Get ready to relax and get creative!

You choose the painting you would like to learn! First, go to our calendar and take a look at our featured paintings. Then, chat with your gal pals, spouse, boyfriend, co-workers or parents. TRY and agree on which painting you would love to paint. Like the painting, but the colors don’t match your decor? You can change the colors in any painting! Don’t think you can’t paint any of these paintings! We promise you, they are easier than they look!!! YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT HOW WELL YOU DO!!

Once everyone has agreed, click the featured painting’s link from the calendar to see details and register for class. It’s very important to RSVP and book your class in advance so that we can prepare for you. If we do not receive any registrations for a class 24 hours prior, we will cancel it to allow our artists to have that time off. You can bring in your confirmation email (or show it to us on your phone) for proof of registration.

The studio opens 30 minutes prior to classes. On the day of your class, arrive at Creative Spirits about 15-20 minutes early to get checked in and get all the supplies you need. Our BYOB license allows participants to bring in their own alcohol (BEER or WINE only, please) to consume during classes after 4 p.m. We provide corkscrews, glasses and ice. We highly encourage participants to carpool or take a taxi service home if you will be bringing in alcoholic beverages.

Next, RELAX and HAVE FUN! A local artist instructor will paint along with you and guide you brush stroke by brush stroke until your masterpiece is complete!

In a relaxed, social group setting, a local artist will guide you step by step through recreating the featured painting. Whether you have experience or you are looking to explore your creative side, you are sure to have a great time and go home with your own unique painting. You will be amazed at what you learn and create.

Registering and reserving your space in advance is highly encouraged. This allows us to plan a great class for you. Visit our Calendar page to see upcoming featured paintings and when they are scheduled. Choose an event for online registration or feel free to give us a call and we will get your information and reserve you a seat.

If no sign-ups are received 24 hours prior to a class, it will be canceled. Signing up ahead guarantees your class will not be dropped from the calendar! If we know you are coming, we will have an artist there ready to instruct you.

We always try to seat friends and parties together. Just be sure to let us know when making the reservation and we will do our best to seat you all together. Don’t delay; it is first-come, first-served, so sign up as soon as you have picked the class you all want to attend.

No problem! We would be happy to help you choose a different background color or help you customize it a little to fit with your personal decor. We carry several different paint colors, so feel free to send us a message to see if we have a color that you like.

Be creative about what you do with your finished product! You can have it framed with a wood border, hang it at your office, or even gift it to a friend or family member who will treasure your masterpiece!

We provide a 16×20 canvas for you to use and take home if you sign up for the $40 class option; or an 11×14 canvas panel if you sign up for the $30 class. You will have access to all of our paints, brushes, easel and aprons.

We will provide aprons, but we recommend wearing something you wouldn’t mind getting paint on. Acrylic paint will wash out of clothes while wet, but is permanent once it dries.

The studio opens 30 minutes before class. We recommend getting here 15-20 minutes early so you have time to get registered, put on your apron, get your paint, and get your drink poured before the fun starts! Classes run around 2 hours with frequent breaks.

Cancellations should be made by phone or by emailing us at info@creativespiritsaz.com. This provides us the opportunity to fill the space. We will charge the full class fee for reservations not cancelled 48 hours in advance.

For private parties, we ask you to give us one week notice if you need to cancel. Cancellations should be made by phone or by emailing us at info@creativespiritsaz.com. This provides us the opportunity to book another party. We will charge the minimum participants fee for reservations cancelled within a week prior to the event (10-person minimum). This is in addition to the non-refundable deposit made when booking the event.

We try to have the schedule out at least 3 weeks in advance. Please check our Calendar often for new events and specials!

Unopened wine and beer are the only alcoholic beverages welcome into the studio. Please no hard liquor or malted beverages. Thanks!
