Absolutely! Here are the basics: Kid’s Parties (utilizing Kid’s Art, which can be seen in the Kid’s Gallery) are generally $25 per painter. Teen Parties (utilizing our simpler adult art from the Teen Gallery) are generally $35 per painter. We CAN use our more advanced adult art in a Kid’s Party, but we really don’t suggest it. Pricing would be based off the art selected. We require a minimum of 10 painters for parties at our Studios, and 15 for off-site parties (held at your location). We do offer MULTI-TICKET DISCOUNTS on purchases, so if you are buying all of the tickets for the event, [...]
Of course you can! Tipsy Ypsi Paint & Pour offers an incredible new way to spice up your next event. Let our Entertainer/Instructors guide your guests through an evening of art and merriment, and they’ll be sure to talk about it for weeks! Paint and Pour private parties are great for ANY event, so don’t hesitate. We host Private Events at all of our studio, at our partner venues at restaurants and bars across Metro Detroit, and even on site at your home/business/church/facility. We offer several different types of Private Events. Feel free to click on the link for the party [...]
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.
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. [...]
We try to post our schedule at least six weeks in advance. Be sure to join our Facebook page, Twitter feed, and our Email Newsletter to learn about upcoming events, special events, coupon promotions, and new paintings!
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 [...]
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 [...]
We provide everything patrons will need for their party, including a 16″ x 20″ stretched canvas, paint, brushes, easels, aprons, music, and a talented instructor/entertainer to host the evening. If you are attending an event at our studio in Ypsilanti, you only need to bring your own drinks and food. At our partner venues at bars and restaurants, a server will be on hand to supply your needs. We also have paper plates, plastic utensils, cups, napkins, and assorted dining gear, as well as wine screws and bottle openers at our studio locations. NOTE: Events held off-site at a facility providing [...]
There is limited seating at all of our venues, so we highly recommend signing up in advance. The easiest way is to register online by going to our calendar page. Guests will be able to view the featured painting for each party, and thus choose the painting that THEY want to paint. If you are having issues, feel free to call us at (734) 480-8095 for assistance. We DO take cash and credit card payments on site, but there is a $5 upcharge for tickets at the door. Furthermore, we can NOT guarantee that there will still be a spot available [...]
While guests will learn how to create a painting that they will be proud of, the focus is on fun and having a unique night out. During the event we’re playing fun music while patrons have the opportunity to enjoy their own beverages and nibbles, as well as a chance to socialize with dates, friends or significant others. We do offer advanced events periodically for those more serious about learning new techniques and working with locally famous artists…but still having fun.
