In-Studio and Patio Painting
As of June 18 we are allowing people to paint inside the studio! We have 4 tables set up inside and 3 outside on the patio to accommodate all your artistic needs! We request reservations so we can keep you safe and control the disinfecting of our supplies. We are currently not offering our Fused Glass projects due to the complications involved in sanitizing the supplies. Due social distancing requirements and government restrictions, seat spaces are for painters ONLY.
We will be taking reservations for the following times for inside and Patio seating in 2 hr blocks: (psssst, calling right before you come is ok too! :))
Thursdays & Fridays: 2-8pm
Please make your reservations can by phone (301-732-6943). Please provide your name, phone number, date and time requested, and number of painters. No deposit is required to reserve a seat. If you make a reservation and cannot keep it, please let us know as soon as possible. Due to limited seating we request only one non-painter per table.
