How to book a private event
Simply fill out the form listed at the bottom of this page with as many details as you can regarding your request or give us a call and we will fill one out for you! You can book a private party on weekdays M-Th and Friday day with a 13 painter minimum or on Friday night, Saturday or Sunday with an 15 painter minimum. Our prices run as follows, $40 per person for a 2-hour class, $45 per person for a 3-hour class and $50 per person for a 4-hour class. Class hourly times (2,3 and 4 hours) are based on the painting selection. The initial invoice is usually sent for the 2-hour rate until the painting choice is made. Any additional time needed for the party will be an extra $75 an hour or $40 for a half hour. The 13 or 15 minimum guest deposit must be paid for as soon as possible in order to reserve your date and time slot for the party. A guest count can be sent to us a few days before the event and the additional guests may be paid for on the day of the party.
A private party includes your choice of one painting (click the Gallery tab located above for painting selections), 2-4 hours of professional art instruction (time is based on painting choice), all materials (aprons, easels, canvases and ALL art supplies). All painting setup and clean up for the painting experience are provided by The Painted Cork! Schedule your event at your home, business or at a local winery, brewery or even a local resort! You can really customize your event to meet your own needs. We strive to make our guests happy and comfortable in any way we can. If you have any special requests before or after the private party, feel free to call us to chat about it!
Team Building and Corporate Events
Nothing shows your team the love they deserve like hosting a paint and sip party for them! Have your event at your own business or collaborate with a winery, restaurant or resort and we will bring the painting party to your group!
Please note that our staff and instructor must be allowed at least 1.5-2 hours to arrive and set up prior to the event. There must also be tables and chairs already present at the place of painting. A sink is also needed for water bowls and minor clean up. The bulk of the clean up will be packed up and taken away from the site and cleaned up at our location.
The Painted Cork would like to give back to the Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay Community!
Give us a call to schedule a non-profit paint and sip fundraiser and allow guests to participate in all the fun while giving back at the same time! We will come to your desired location and set the entire painting experience up for your event!
You pick the date, time, location and painting and we will post your fundraiser onto our calendar so your guests can sign up! We will also collaborate with the host to advertise the event on Facebook and Instagram pages and newsletters Fundraisers can profit even more when they hold raffles, silent auctions, collaborate with a winery to do tastings or even have a restaurant donate delicious appetizers etc!
