WHO ARE WE? 

Art By Friends NYC organizes fun events with a laid back environment where you can explore your creative, artistic side. Yes, everyone has one! We guide our customers step by step to creating their own unique 16”x20” masterpiece, one drink at a time! 

 

WHAT WE DO? 

We host public art events in restaurants and bars throughout NYC and Westchester. With plenty of locations to choose from, you can get your drink on OR your eat on while you paint! We also run private events and parties for all age groups, including mini-Monets and wee Warhols, where mocktails are encouraged. We are also artists! Please contact us to commission custom artwork.

 

WHERE ARE EVENTS HELD? 

Art by Friends NYC events are held at trendy, fun restaurants and bars located throughout NYC and Westchester. This way, you can find inspiration for your 16x20 masterpiece from a variety of locations and venues.

 

HOW LONG ARE EVENTS? 

All events are approximately two hours long, though we do recommend arriving early if you are attending with a large group…and staying late for a few more drinks! All events are first come, first seat.

 

IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT? 

Yes. Since events are held at establishments that serve alcoholic beverages, we require that all attendees must be over the age of 21. If under 21, check out Kiddies & Canvas, an event where mini-Monets get their paint on with those mocktails we talked about earlier.

 

ARE SUPPLIES INCLUDED? 

Yes, all supplies needed for each project are included in the price of admission. It really couldn’t be any easier!

 

ARE EVENTS BYOB? 

No, but all events are held at locations that offer plenty of food and drinks that can be purchased at an additional cost. We like our patrons to have plenty of options!

 

IS A DRINK INCLUDED? 

Unfortunately, drinks and food are not included in the admission price; however, we do work with our venues to offer unique Art by Friends NYC menus, as well as drink specials. We promise you’ll love what they have to offer!

 

WHAT WILL WE BE PAINTING OR CRAFTING AT EACH EVENT? 

The art shown to the left of each event title under “Calendar” is – or very close to – what we will be painting or crafting. So if you love it when you see it on our website, we know you’ll love it even more in person!

 

HOW DO I PURCHASE AN EVENT TICKET?

 Itching to get started? Here's what you do:

1.     First, on our calendar, choose an event you would look to attend.

2.     Next, go to “Purchase Events” and click “Add To Cart.”

3.     Look at the bottom of the screen under “Cart” to see how many items have been added. If this looks correct, click “Cart.”

4.     When you are ready to check out, verify your purchases, and click “Checkout.”

5.     Enter all coupon and contact information and click “Continue.”

6.     Enter your billing information, click “Submit Order,” and you’re good to go! You will receive a confirmation email at the email address included on your contact information.

Once you receive the confirmation you’re all set!

 

HOW DO I PURCHASE CLASSES IN GROUPS OF TWO OR MORE?

Unfortunately, you can’t currently purchase more than one ticket per transaction for each class, but we are working on this! (We promise, we want you and all your friends there getting painting, sipping and gabbing!) To purchase classes in groups of two or more, simply perform each transaction separately. If you’re using a voucher in multiples of two or four, enter the same voucher code with each transaction.

 

WHAT IS A VOUCHER CODE? 

We love voucher codes, and we think you will too! When you save money purchasing a voucher code, that’s just more money you can spend on cocktails! A voucher redemption code is given to you when you purchase a ticket to an event through third party merchants, including sites like Gilt City, Groupon, Livingsocial, Amazon Local, YPlan, etc.

 

DO I NEED TO REGISTER MY VOUCHER CODE? 

Yes. Your voucher code is not valid until you enter it with your reservation in our system.

 

HOW DO I REDEEM MY VOUCHER CODE? 

If you have purchased a deal off of one of third party merchants, you must submit your voucher code during checkout. It’s super easy (really!) and takes place during checkout.

 

1.     Begin the checkout process (explained under “How do I purchase an event ticket?”).

2.     When you are ready to check out, verify your purchases, and click “Checkout.”

3.     When you are taken to the next page, you will see a box that says “Coupons.” Enter your promo code here.

4.     After entering your contact info, click “Continue.” Enter your billing information, click “Submit Order,” and you’re good to go! You will receive a confirmation email at the email address included on your contact information.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY 

You can cancel any scheduled public Art by Friends NYC event up until 48 hours prior to the event in exchange for credit towards a different class…but we really hope you won’t! If you need to cancel, please email us.

 

HOW TO CHANGE RESERVATION? 

To change your reservation, please email artbyfriendsnyc@gmail.com. Be sure to let us know the email address you registered with, the date you booked your events, and the event you would like to switch to. And please book an event again later – we will miss you!

 

 

DOES ART BY FRIENDS NYC EVER CANCEL EVENTS? 

Yes. Events that have less than 12 people signed up one week prior will be cancelled. In the rare instance that your event is cancelled, you will be given the opportunity to reschedule for a later date. To avoid this, simply convince all your friends to join you! Nothing’s better than creating a work of art with all your favorite people.
