Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is a Creatively Uncorked event like?
A. A fun, social, group setting, with an artist to guide you step by step in replicating the night’s featured painting. By the end of the evening, you will create a fabulous craft or piece of artwork! The event times vary but we suggest arriving 20-30 minutes early to get drinks, paint and the seat of your choice. Events are usually 2 – 3 hours including breaks. Events in our downtown Fargo studio are open to age 6 and up. The West Fargo studio is age 21 and up. Please check the description of the event you plan to attend.
Q. Do I need to sign up in advance?
A. Yes! Sign up early to avoid disappointment. You can register on the website or give us a call at 701-532-2112 and we will be happy to get you registered. We post events on Facebook as an easy way to invite your friends, but indicating on Facebook that you are going does not hold your seat! Please sign up on the Creatively Uncorked website.
Q. What is the cost of a Creatively Uncorked event?
A. Most prices range between $20-$70 depending on the night, the material, and the painting. Typically a two-hour painting is $40. We accept cash, credit cards, and gift certificates. We do not take personal checks.
Q. Do you have gift certificates?
Q. How do I redeem my gift card?
If you have a plastic gift card or a Square eGift Card, just call or email to let us know your gift card number and which event you will attend.
Q. What do I wear?
A. We provide aprons, but you may want to wear something you wouldn’t mind getting paint on, just in case!
Q. What time do I need to arrive for an event?
A. We recommend arriving 20-30 minutes early to most events to get signed in, get uncorked and get seated. The bar is open in the West Fargo studio an hour before most events. Stop in early for a snack and a drink. Most of our venue partners offer full menus, so you may want to arrive even earlier to order dinner in the dining area before the event. If you want to sit with a group of friends, one person should arrive early enough to save seats for the group. Let us know if you would like to save seats when you are checking in.
Q. What happens if an event is canceled due to weather?
A. If a public event cannot take place as scheduled due to weather, we will reschedule to a new date and transfer all tickets automatically. If you cannot make it to the rescheduled event, you can request a transfer voucher here. The 48-hour cancellation policy will apply to the new date.
Q. Can my friend come by and watch?
A. No. Painting parties are not a spectator sport! We have found that having non-painting extras in the room is very distracting and disruptive to the painters.
Q. The event I want to attend is sold out. Can you add me to a wait list?
A. We do not maintain a wait list. If anyone cancels we will post it on Facebook. If you click “interested” or “going” on the Facebook event, you will be among the first to be notified about cancellations.
Q. When does the new schedule come out?
A. The schedule is being continuously updated. We try to have our public events calendar up 5-7 weeks in advance. We are always updating our schedule with new paintings and venues, please join our email list to get the new events via email.
Q. My private party really wants a custom painting. Can you paint one?
A. You can request a custom painting. We make no guarantees that a custom painting to your liking will be completed for your party. Please choose a backup from the library.
Q. Can we have liquor in the studio?

Q. What do you do with the extra teacher’s paintings?
A. We often donate them to charity. If you know of a non-profit that is holding a silent auction and would like some paintings, have them contact us. You can request a donation for your non-profit here. Any paintings that do not get donated are available at the studio for sale.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: If you cannot make it to your scheduled event, you can request a transfer voucher here until 48 hours prior to the event. Your transfer voucher will expire in 90 days. Transfers are not available less than 48 hours before the event. You may let someone of your own choosing use your ticket in your absence.
Not all events are voucherable! Fundraisers, private parties, Paint Your Pet, and some specials will not have the transfer voucher option available.
