How do I sign up for a public event?
Go to our calendar, choose what masterpiece you want to paint, and sign up for the session!
When do you put up your full public calendar?
Can kids come to the public sessions?
Of course! We sell beer and wine, but we only card when people buy alcohol. Kids come with their parents, grandparents, etc, all the time and they have a blast. If you want more information about our kids’ parties, check out our kids’ party page.
What is your cancellation policy for public events?
We will provide a full refund if you cancel 48+ hours before the event. We will also provide store credit if you cancel 24+ hours before the event. Unfortunately, we’re not able to provide credit or a refund if cancelling inside of 24 hours, but we will create a 50% voucher code that you can apply toward a future session, so that the cost to sign up again is minimized.
What is your no-show policy for public events?
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a refund or store credit if you miss your session.
How do I plan a private party?
Can I use a discount/promo code on a Private Party?
Unfortunately, promo/discount codes cannot be applied to our private parties or fundraisers, but we do a volume discount for parties with 20+ advance sign-ups. Ask your party planner for details!
What is your cancellation policy for private parties?
We hope you don’t have to cancel your event, but we understand things come up! We just ask that you let us know as soon as you can as there is a decent chance another party was interested in your date. If you cancel 14+ days in advance, everyone who has purchased a ticket will receive a refund (or store credit if they prefer). Parties that cancel less than one week before will receive store credit or the option to re-book their party for another time.
Where do I park?

CT – West Hartford: There is a small lot in front of Muse’s front entrance. If you know the area, this is also the lot in front of REI, GNC, and Verizon. However, this lot requires meters to be paid until 10 PM. There is plenty of parking in the garages on both sides of the center. The more convenient garage is half a block North on New St.

Option 2: Come into the store during or around when we’re having a paint session (see our event calendar here). We have gift certificates professionally printed on quality card stock.
Do you serve food and/or drinks?
Yes – we have a variety of tasty bites and over 20 beers & wines for your enjoyment!
Can I show up to one of your sessions without paying or reserving in advance?
Sure! But we recommend signing up in advance to ensure you have a saved seat. If our class is sold out, we won’t have a seat for you and we’ll feel bad!
What is your bad weather policy?
Muse’s first concern is for the safety of our instructors and guests. When weather is an issue, we’ll consult with some select neighboring businesses and then make a decision as to whether we will open or not. You can also check for weather alert updates on our Facebook page.
If you’d like to reschedule due to weather, just give us a call or shoot us an email and we’ll happily take care of you. If you’re a private party and the weather is an issue, we’ll happily reschedule the party for a different date that works for the whole group. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer last-minute (i.e., same day) refunds due to weather-related circumstances.
