GSO Painting Event FAQs

How does this kind of paint class work?
It's a relaxed, fun, group setting. Each person will be provided with a canvas, easel, brushes, apron and paint. An artist from the Painting with a Twist will guide everyone step by step through replicating the featured canvas.  This class requires no previous experience with painting.  At the end, you will take home your very own masterpiece.

Please bring your own preferred beverages and snacks!  For this event you are welcome (but not required) to bring your own beverage – alcoholic or non-alcoholic, as well as snacks.  Painting with a Twist can provide cups, napkins, paper plates, and corkscrews.

Who can attend?
The event is open to Loyola graduate students and their guests (see "additional guests," below).  The cost is the same for the Loyola student or the guest, at $10 each.  Attendees must be aged 21 or older to attend.  

Can friends come and watch us without painting?
Everyone needs to pre-register a paid seat to stay on premises during the class.

What does the registration fee for this event include?
Your $10 registration includes your canvas as well as use of paint, brushes, an easel and an apron. The GSO is subsidizing the remainder of the $42/person cost.  Please bring your own preferred beverages and snacks!

What if I’m not artistic?
You don’t need to be! This instructor will walk everyone through the class step by step. It is designed even for those who have absolutely no painting experience.

Can I bring any additional guests?
Yes, you may register non-Loyola guests at the same cost of $10.

What time should I get there?
Check-in opens at 2:00 p.m.  The lesson will begin promptly at 2:30.  Per the Painting with a Twist website, if you are late to the class, you may not be allowed to paint and your payment may be forfeited.  Please be on time. 

What do I wear?
Painting with a Twist will provide aprons, but we recommend wearing something you wouldn't mind getting paint on- just in case!

If I cannot make it to the event, will I be refunded?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide a refund if you have already paid and are unable to attend. The GSO is subsidizing the majority of the cost for each person, and must pay for each student in advance, and we cannot receive a refund from the vendor. We will likely have a wait list, though, so if you are unable to attend, we may be able to have someone take your spot.

How does registration work?
Register yourself by emailing gso@loyola.edu.  Let us know:

  • Your name
  • Your Loyola email address
  • Your graduate program
  • The name(s) of your guests (if applicable)

We will then confirm availability, and then provide you a link to pay Painting with a Twist your $10 per person directly.  Please do not register or pay for anyone else other than yourself and your guest (if applicable).

When is payment due?
Please make sure your payment is in no later than midnight Thursday, April 28th, as we will move to our waitlist on Thursday morning.  Your seat is not guaranteed until payment is made and confirmed.

Please email the GSO if you have any additional questions at gso@loyola.edu.
