Event FAQ

Public Event Cancellation


We hate to cancel our events, but occasionally it happens.  Usually, events are canceled due to low attendance numbers or severe weather conditions. In the event of a cancellation, anyone who purchased a ticket will be notified and given the option of a reschedule voucher or refund.

What are the Maturity Ratings listed on your events? Is there an age limit for events?


As a general rule of thumb, our minimum age is 18 and over for standard events, although guests will have to be 21+ to consume alcohol. We do not tolerate under-age drinking under any circumstances, and participation in that sort of activity will result in immediate dismissal of the perpetrator, and everyone in their group, from the event. However, we do run events for Teen (ages 13+) and Kids (ages 5+).  Each event has a "Maturity Rating" clearly listed on the event's detail page. You can see a legend of our Maturity Ratings on the right hand side. X [...]

Can I change something in my painting?


Absolutely! Our guests are welcome to change up their paintings as they see fit.  We love seeing unique art pieces, and we witnessed some absolutely incredible interpretations of our art! Our instructors will be there to answer any questions and provide some advice, but their primary obligation is to teach the featured painting to the rest of the party, so please be considerate of the other patrons. In fact, we have even added some of our patron’s “alterations” to our regular library, as we just fell in love with their creativity! If we fall for YOUR unique take on one of [...]

If I come with my friends, can we sit together?


We always try to seat friends and parties together, but make sure at least ONE person from your party arrives early to “stake out” an area for you. We do not take seating reservations, as it has proven to be a serious obstacle to getting the show started on time.

Do you provide alcohol or food?


At Our Studio: We do not sell alcohol at our studio, but patrons may bring their own! Alcohol and Food are permitted in accordance with Michigan State Liquor Law and the Liquor Control Board, with the following stipulations: BYOB alcohol & food is allowed within the premises of our studios, but Tipsy Ypsi may terminate alcohol consumption at our discretion. No open containers may leave the premises. Michigan law does allow the re-corking of wine bottles, provided that they are placed in the trunk. Wine Bottles MUST be re-corked level with the lip of the bottle. No underage drinking is allowed. [...]

What time do I need to arrive before my event?


We recommend arriving at the venue 15 minutes prior to the party to get registered and get situated/pour a drink. We make every effort to start promptly and patrons will need a few minutes to get settled. Please note that the studio is likely to be locked until 30 minutes before an event starts. We need this time to prepare the studio for the event and make sure everything is ready for your party, so please do NOT show up more than 30 minutes before a scheduled party without making prior arrangements with the staff. If you are coming with a [...]

What do I wear?


We will provide aprons, but we do recommend wearing something comfortable you wouldn’t mind getting paint on. While accidents are rare, they DO happen, so don’t wear anything that you would be absolutely heartbroken if some paint were to fall on it. Our paint stays on the canvas AND on your clothes! As a general rule of thumb, you should choose your clothing with the following things in mind: Long sleeves are the most common problem area. Anything that restricts your arms might be a problem. If you are frequently cold in public area, bring an old sweater or zippy instead [...]
