Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?
Click on the register page, choose your event, click "register" and follow the directions. You can also contact me directly by phone or email to register. We do accept personal checks but please note that your registration is not complete until payment is received. Many events sell out so we encourage you to send payment right away or pay via credit card to avoid disapointment.

What is your cancellation policy?
48 hour notice: customers may receive a refund or credit to use at a later date. Less than 48 hours notice: customers may receive a credit but they must contact us before the event. No Shows will NOT be refunded or rescheduled. Please plan accordingly or contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend. Cancellations should be made by phone (603-903-5902) or by emailing us at

What if my event is cancelled due to weather?
We try hard not to cancel events but sometimes Mother Nature intervenes. In the case of an event being cancelled, participants will be issued a credit to use at a future class. If scheduling allows, we will also reschedule that particular event.

What is included?
All the art materials, paint, 12x16 inch canvas, painting aprons and 2 to 3 hours of instruction. Food and drinks are not typically included in the price. We do offer occassional all-inclusive events which will be noted in the description.

What is the seating arrangement?
We typically seat everyone at one or more large tables. If you are coming with a group and want to ensure that you will sit together please let us know ahead of time and we will gladly accomodate you.

What should I expect?
Monadnock Art Parties put the emphasis on FUN! Art Nights are stress-free & casual where beginners are encouraged. Keene artist,Kristina Wentzell will guide you step by step through the process of creating your own work of art. The lesson takes about 2 hours. All materials are provided and everyone will go home with a painting they can be proud of.

What if I have never painted before?
...or "can't draw a straight line" or "can't draw a stick figure" or...we've heard it all and delight in showing you that yes, you CAN paint. Everything is broken down in easy to follow step-by-step instructions in a casual and friendly atmosphere. C'mon, give it a try!

What is your Frequent Painters Club?
As a thank you to our repeat customers, we offer the Frequent Painter Club card--come to four classes and get the fifth one free! Ask for a card at any of the events.

Are children welcome?
Unless events are specifically for over 21, older children are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Sessions take about 2 hours; you will know best if your child will enjoy sitting for that amount of time. We often have moms and daughters (and sons!) enjoying a night out together. We offer a special child's ticket price for children ages 7 to 16.

What should I wear?
Monadnock Art Parties has complementary painting aprons for our guests. We paint with acrylics which are permanent once they dry. If you are concerned about being messy please dress accordingly. Splatters do occassionally happen!
