PAINT IN STUDIO FAQs
What is Mimosa and a Masterpiece Like?
Mimosa and a Masterpiece is an innovative and inspiring art class that allows you to paint while sipping on a cocktail. The class is fun waiting to happen and you will remember the experience forever. Our local artist will guide you stroke-by-stroke through the process to complete the featured painting. The class is fun and energetic with frequent breaks and lots of laughs. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!!!
Do I Need To Register In Advance?
Yes, it is highly recommended that you do because some classes fill up fast. This also guarantees that your seat is saved.
What Is The Cost?
The cost is $35 per painter for public classes and $40 per painter for a private party. If you are attending a couples painting, you will need to register for 2 painters. Mimosas are NOT included in the price because we realize that not everyone drinks. We would not want someone to pay for a drink when they would rather have a soda. Wine and Mimosas are $5 a glass. We also sell soda for $2.
What Time Should I Arrive?
It is suggested that you arrive 15 minutes before the class starts. This allows you to find your seat and choose your paint colors. This also allows time to purchase a Mimosa or glass of wine in the event you need a little liquid courage. PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME TO FIND PARKING!! Mass Ave is very busy on the weekends.
Can I Bring My Own Alcohol?
No, BYOB is not allowed at Mimosa and a Masterpiece. We have a Wine License, so under the Indiana state law, it is illegal to bring in your own alcohol. However, you do have the option to purchase Mimosa, red and white wine. We also have soda for purchase.
What Is Included In The Price?
We provide everything you need, a 16x20 canvas, paint, brushes, easels, and an apron. Drinks are extra.
Are You Environmentally Friendly?
Yes, at Mimosa and a Masterpiece, we strive to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as we can. We use wine glasses, champagne glasses, reusable paint palettes and muslin to protect the tables. We also use cloth napkins instead of paper towels.
How Should I Get My Painting Home?
Since we use quick drying acrylic paint, your Masterpiece will more than likely be completely dry before you leave. However, plan to travel with your painting face up.
How Many Classes/Parties Can You Have At One Time?
We have three party rooms. Room #1 can accommodate unto 24 people, room #2 can accommodate unto 18 people and room #3 can accommodate unto 10 people.

- Tajuana, the owner is at many of the classes. Why? Because she loves making new friends.
- We have very FEW rules, we love to think outside the box.
- We have sustainable business practices.
- We make you a custom palette with the colors you choose to create your Masterpiece.
