Weather in the mountains can be unpredictable! If you find yourself feeling nervous to drive to your scheduled class, give us a call and we will credit you for another class. It’s never worth it to rush through bad weather!
Don’t see your favorite painting on the calendar?
No problem! Send us an email or give us a call and we can create an event featuring your requested painting. We’re always happy to add events to meet your needs.
Alcohol Sale and Consumption.
The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Consumption has granted our business an Educational License. That means that our guests are able to enjoy a maximum of two beverages during public classes. It also means that for every Adult Class, guests must be 21+ and are required to bring a valid I.D. Even if you’re 95 years old, we kindly ask that you provide identification. Think of it as a compliment! Everyone stays young in Utah 😉
How much do private parties cost?
Private event pricing depends on group size and needs, please contact us for team pricing.
Do you have special classes for families or for team building?
Yes! We love to create custom team building experiences! Whether it’s making a collaborative painting for the office, or making a special craft with the family, we can make it happen!
Does the paint come out of clothes?
We work with acrylic paint. That means that paint can be removed from clothing when it is still wet. If the paint happens to dry on your clothes, just think of it as a permanent reminder of all the fun you had at the Paint Mixer! Aprons are provided to protect your outfit.
Where to Park?
In Park City:
The closest parking garage is a paid, underground lot at the Marriot Summitwatch. Parking on weekends and during special events is always a tricky, so allow yourself an extra 10 minutes to find a spot. There are a few free parking areas (Flagpole Lot, the Park City Library, and China Bridge before 5 pm), but they do require a longer walk. You can always refer to these online Parking Maps.
Feel free to park in front of the Paint Mixer, or at the KFC. View Street offers street parking as well. Please do not park in tenant parking at the 21 and View Apartments.
Public transit and Taxi Services:
Park City has a fantastic and FREE Public Transit system that operates all year. Our Park City Studio is conveniently close to The Old Town Transit Center which offers buses to most hotel and condo locations. Check out the city’s bus routes and schedule to plan your trip to the Paint Mixer.
We would be happy to organize a taxi service to get you home safely!
Is the Paint Mixer open during the day if I want to paint on my own?
We don’t have regular hours, but instead are open for scheduled class sessions that you can sign up for. Don’t see a class that works with your schedule? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try to schedule a class you can make it to!
Do you sell alcohol at The Paint Mixer?
Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at our adult classes. We try our best to source from the best local breweries and wineries. Our educational license allows patrons to enjoy a maximum of two drinks per class.
What is a session like at The Paint Mixer?
Our regular classes are usually two hours long and feature an skilled artist taking you step by step through a painting. Between instruction, guests are encouraged to let loose and have a glass of wine and while mixing and mingling.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
Signing up in advance ensures that you’ll get a seat, and it helps the class to start on time. There is also a chance that a class could be cancelled if there aren’t any sign ups.
If I come with a group of friends, can we all sit together?
Yes! When you sign up online, simply fill out the section that says, “Are you meeting additional people that you are not signing up here? How many?”
What food do you have available?
We offer yummy snacks made fresh by Little Dessert and Cake Shop. Treat yourself to cookies, cakes, chocolate covered pretzels, or home roasted nuts! We also serve PopArt’s delicious popcorn and Utah Truffles.
What is included in the class price?
Professional instruction and all materials are included in the class cost. Alcohol, snacks and shipping are available for purchase.
What time do I need to arrive for a session?
We suggest arriving 5-10 minutes prior to the class time. This allows you to get settled without feeling rushed. If you haven’t yet signed up for the class, please come a few extra minutes early to register.
What about B.Y.O.B.?
Our educational license does not allow guests to bring their own alcohol to public classes. However, we do have local wine, beer and cider for purchase.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever feels best! We also recommend not wearing something you’d hate to get paint on… Maybe leave the mink coat or white cashmere sweater at home!
Do you ship?
Yes, we can ship paintings anywhere in North America.
How do I know if a class is Sold Out?
Our website will not let us register for more seats than we have. Events that are full will show SOLD OUT on the calendar. We do have a waitlist and do our best to accommodate our guests.
Do I need a reservation?
Reservations are highly recommended as space is limited. You can register and pay online by going directly to the Calendar and picking the date of your choice. Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is preferred.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations happen and we will happily provide credit for a future class. Please let us know your intentions by calling or emailing email@example.com prior to your class start time.
Can we host a private party at The Paint Mixer?
Yes! See our Private Events page for details about our Corporate/Team Building Events, Private Parties for kids and adults, and our Fundraisers.

Do you have an age limit?
We welcome painters of all ages! However, our classes are divided into All Ages or Adult (21+). Adult classes require guests to be 21 years of age or older. You must also bring a valid state issued ID or valid US passport to enter this class. According to UDABC and our Educational Permit, no one under the age of 21 is permitted including infants and newborns. This policy is strictly enforced.
If you’re interested in painting with your children, please make sure the class is an All Ages event.

A typical session lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours, give or take.
