11. Will Kiddos and Canvas provide tablecloths?
Yes! We bring black linen tablecloths to every event.
12. What time should my guests arrive?
We ask that all participants arrive no later than 15 minutes before the scheduled event start time. This ensures that all guests are in attendance and that the event will start on time. We can delay the start of the event, however, this will cut into the allotted amount of time scheduled for the event.

The decision to pay a gratuity to the staff providing service to the event, and the amount thereof, is at the Reserving Party’s sole discretion. Tips are not expected but are greatly appreciated.
15. What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to postpone your party we will work with you to reschedule your party (based on availability) as long as you cancel (7) seven days prior to your original party date. If you choose to simply cancel with us for ANY reason after the (7) seven day period then your deposit will NOT be refunded.
16. What if I do not know how many people will be painting?
Kiddos and Canvas needs to receive a final guaranteed guest count, via email, at least 48 hours prior to the reservation date.
