This is my second visit to Painting with a Twist. The first was a positive experience and I was looking for a night out with my adult daughter. We picked November 11 because we both liked the Christmas snowman painting. The artist spent too much time on tasteless inappropriate jokes, that were not funny and no one was laughing. I did not appreciate him dropping the F bomb and I could tell by some of the other ladies faces, they didn't either. He didn't explain what he was doing. I asked his helper when he was going to finish the hat, scarf and highlights. He said he would be getting to it, which he never did. It looked nothing like the painting we expected to walk out with when the class was over. He didn't give the little details that would have given the painting a special spark. I probably will stop recommending the event and if I do return, I will check the artist teaching the class. Very disappointed.

Fun times, great learning experience.
I've been to three classes with both Brian or Nick as instructors. They both are a lot of fun and I learned a lot. You can tell they both have real talent. I will definitely be back after the holidays! Love it!

While this paint night was intended for adults only, no where did it indicate it was “R” rated. Very tasteless. Not funny in the least bit. Wouldn’t recommend this facility or instructor. The instructor missed giving steps because he was too busy doing shots and allowing people to vape. Worst experience ever!!!

A dreaded experience turned out wonderful
My Mother's Day gift was a Mom & Daughter night of painting. I dreaded the thought of going, I'm no artist. Small class and my experience turned out wonderful and the painting, in my opinion, wasn't that bad. Lots of attention by instructor, husband liked it so much he wants to hang it in Florida. The SOS class three days later allowed me to go back (no additional cost) and do a few touch ups. Chris was the instructor both times and his input was much appreciated. Guess my daughter knows me better than I know myself.

Need Better Teens Accomodations and Clarity on Website
I was turned away from participating in a paint night last night at the East Longmeadow location because I had a few 13yr old girls with me. Before purchasing the tickets online I made sure the paint night I selected was not restricted to adults only because I came before and I understand/respect the restriction. However once we came and the front desk personnel seeing the 13yr olds simply refused our entry indicating that it is only for adults. I turned their attention to the website and they confirmed that the restriction wasn't placed for this particular night however I still was refused entry and received reimbursement for the tickets. I left feeling disappointed because I was not negligent about their age and made sure to select a night that did not have an age restriction in the description. I recommend having clearer descriptions for each night so that this doesn't happen to someone else and provide evening times and teen appropriate paintings as the "Kids" painting are too childish for the teens - that was the feedback I got from the girls. Otherwise this is a fun place to paint.

A fun learning experience
We went a little nervous and found it was actually a awesome time. Artists were very helpful adding in a whole lotta fun. I will definitely to back. Nick was an great instructor and showed us techniques for blending.

Thank you Patti for taking the time to give us a review. We are always happy to hear that we have accomplished our goal of giving our painters a night to remember. Nick is wonderful and is our resident Nerd. Hope to see you back painting with us again! Dave & the staff

Great Times!
I took my boyfriend here along with another couple on couples night and what a great experience we had. So much fun very interactive with the entire group. The teacher actually came down off the stage to offer assistance as well as make jokes with the group!! We will definitely return!!

Professional but friendly and very helpful.
I really had a great time 10/25 working on "emerald flowers". The colors where great, this is my first floral that I love and I think it's the "emerald" that captures the light and dark shadows of the petals. I have missed you over the last 21/2 weeks. Surgery went well but I'm not feeling quite as well as I hoped I would be. If you have openings I'm going to try to come on the 11th for the snowman. I go back to Boston on the 12th for my first post-op checkup. I will speak with you before we'd night. Thanks for everything. Mary Keefe
