Art on Main Studio Policies


Dear Friends,

We've created these policies to ensure that your experience at our studio will be fun, safe and enjoyable.  This is a family oriented business, our main focus is encouraging positive, meaningful bonding and development through creation in the arts.  Please review our policies pertaining to the event that you will be joining so that you can be clear of our expectations of studio etiquette.


If you feel that you or anyone in your party is unable to abide by our guidelines, we do wish you well and hope that you will find an establishment that is better suited to your needs.  Many thanks for your time in reviewing this guideline.

   ‚ÄčKid's & Family Painting Parties


  • Please only touch your own artwork.  No children unattended in the artist's studio.

  • To join an open family/all ages painting, you will need to secure your reservation with a 50% deposit.  If you need to cancel, do so within 48 hours notice in order to receive a refund less $2 for processing fees.  If you do not cancel with 48 hours notice, your deposit will be forfeit.

  • Regarding art instruction:  This is a time for parents to relax and allow the kids to create independently with the assistance of two certified and experienced teachers.  Although you may be tempted to help, we ask that you allow us to work with your children as often times having extra helpers can be distracting and disruptive not only for that student, but the other students in the class.  

  • It is important that the atmosphere is supportive, positive and safe for us and all of our guests.  If your child has a behavior issue like inappropriate language to themselves or others, being negative, or disruptive during the instruction, we do ask that you will be responsible for getting them back on track.  Although we are willing to gently redirect as teachers, we are not the parents and prefer to leave that in your hands.

  • No running or horseplay in the studio.  Children are not to play by the stairs.

  • Children are welcome to look in the artist's studio as long as they are accompanied by an adult.  While in the artist's studio please do not touch, no food/drinks.

  • There is no alcohol at family/kids events.





  • Please only touch your own artwork. No children unattended in the artist's studio.

  • Do not touch the displayed pottery, ask for assistance.

  • The teacher will outline how the materials are to be used.  Parents are responsible for their childrens proper material usage.

  • Ceramics must be picked up no later than 45 days after the date created, the studio is not responsible for items left beyond that date.

  • Parents are responsible for their children's behavior.

  • No running or horseplay in the studio. No playing on the stairs.

BYOB Parties

  • BYOB parties are for adults. 18 years old and up (unless otherwise noted).

  • You must be 21 years old to consume alcohol, be sure to have valid identification.

  • Please be prepared to give a deposit upon making your reservation for OPEN parties, it will be half of the ticket cost. You are welcome to drop in for cash/check/credit card, or we can take you card info over the phone.  For cancelations within 48 hours notice of the event start time, your deposit will be refunded less $2 for processing fees; with less than 48 hours notice forfeit the deposit.

  • When you join a party, you are agreeing to partcipate in creating the painting of that event.  You are welcome to be creative and add your own touch.  We discourage people from painting something completely different because it disjoints the group.  It is a group effort and an opportunity to connect with others when we work together to accomplish something.

  • If someone is being inappropreiate or rude, we reserve the right to ask anyone who can not be respectful to leave, without refund.

  • We encourage responsible drinking.  If we feel that someone is drinking irresponsibly we reserve the right to have them removed from the premise, at our discretion, with no refund.
