Nutcracker - All Ages Welcome! - November, 24, 2014
2 hour class!
"According to German folklore, nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to your family and protect your home. The legend says that a nutcracker represents power and strength and serves like a trusty watch dog guarding your family from evil spirits and danger. A fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill."

Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I sign up for a class?
Simple! Go to our Calendar and select the painting or evening you'd like to join us. Click through and you will come to a sign up screen and then you will be prompted to pay via PayPal using a credit/debit card or your PayPal account. In order to secure your seat, you are encouraged to complete registration and payment online. If you do not complete the payment process online, please call the studio at 706.353.8530 to confirm your seat.
- What is your cancellation policy?
We require 24 hour notice of cancellation in order to receive a refund or not be charged the full price of your party. We prepare all stations - including pumping the paint - for our guests ahead of time, so please call us and notify us in advance of your arrival if the number in your party has changed or if you need to cancel altogether. We really appreciate your help with this!
- May I bring alcoholic beverages?
No, you may not. Clarke County ordinance does not permit BYOB unless you are a restaurant (in not so many words). We do not fall into this category.
Therefore we are licensed to sell beer and wine for consumption on premises. We have a few red wines, white wines and beer, as well as sodas and bottled water.
- Is parking available?
Yes and no. We are fortunate that, as a downtown business, we do have a parking lot. However it IS small, and it does get quite busy at times.
On busy evenings, Sweet Peppers and Gigi's have requested that ARTini's patrons park against the wall, leaving spaces that face the building open for their patrons. It is a good idea to arrive downtown 15-30 minutes prior to 7pm in the event you do have to drive around a little bit to find a parking space.
If the 8 designated ARTini's spaces are taken, you may park across Broad or Pulaski.
- I don't have a PayPal account. Am I still able to pay online or may I pay at the door?
You may always pay at the door. Just call or email in your reservation: 706.353.8530 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may use a credit card to pay via the PayPal portal. You do not have to have a PayPal account to do this.
