FREQUENTLY ASKED Q'S
We know that there are a lot of questions. We have answered the most common ones here.
What is a Tracy's Place class like?
We offer a fun, creative space for artists who just want to dabble in their creativity. When you come in you will pay for your class (if you have not paid online) and order your first drink of choice. We offer local wines, feature local breweries (beer and hard cider), soda, tea, espresso coffee and more. We will card every person who orders wine, cider, or beer, please do not be offended. We will have everything ready for you when you walk in (provided that you register or call beforehand), after you have your drink ordered you can find your seat. We have installed small hooks on all of the tables for purses and light jackets, we also have a visible coat rack available.
After everyone is settled in we have a fun time creating whichever art you have chosen for your class. Our instructors are kind, personable and will give you step by step instructions. Here at Tracy's we do not judge one another in any way shape or form. Come in, create, relax, be social and take home something that you beautifully and artfully created.
How long is each class?
We try to keep all of our projects around 2 to 2 1/2 hours from beginning to end. Some may go over, we try to plan our schedule accordingly.
Are children allowed in Tracy's Place?
We do not know your child as well as you do, therefore, we leave that up for you to decide. Some projects are more complicated than others. Some paintings have more detail than others. Use your discretion when deciding which projects to plan for your family. We have family specific projects and paintings for you as well.
We highly discourage under 7 years old for the string art. Due to the hammer and nails aspect, and the attention span for the string part. Again we leave that decision up to you. However, Tracy's Place cannot be held responsible for any injuries while creating art work.
Where can I find a gallery of all of your painting and project choices?
We have a gallery page on our website, it is full of the projects, classes and parties that we have had and are available to you. We also like to post upcoming projects and paintings on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Follow us on any of our social media sites.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes! We have them available in the studio and online, the link can be found on the home page.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
We have limited seating for all of our projects. If you sign up in advance we can better monitor availability. If a class happens to sell out we suggest you call us to put you on a waiting list. Chances are there will be some cancellations and we can get you a seat.
Why do I have have to pay when I sign up?
We ask for the pay in advance so that it safely holds your seat for you. If we have a large group come in, we will save seats for those who have paid in advance, first. When you sign up for a class, you will be taken to another website that manages our calendar and bookings. Your information is secure and never sold to a third party.
What is the cost of a class at Tracy's Place?
The price ranges, depending on the project or painting. The individual prices are posted with the picture and description on the calendar/booking tab.
What is included in the price?
We provide everything you need to complete your project (canvas, paint, brushes, aprons, wire, beads, nails, hammers, string, wood...etc) as well as your first beverage of choice.
IF you are required to bring anything for the class, it will be mentioned in the description on the registration page.
Do you provide alcohol?
Yes we do. We have several wines from Silver Vines in Arvada and feature rotating micro breweries. We also have hard cider from rotating local breweries.
Additional purchase of beverages are also allowed.
Can I BYOB?
No. Contrary to what some people have said, BYOB is illegal in the State of Colorado. We cannot allow you to bring in any of your own beverages, under any circumstances. This includes ANY outside drinks, water bottles can be filled with out filtered water once inside the studio. Also we cannot allow you to leave the building with any of our alcohol. Help us to protect you and our business.
What kind of paint do you use at Tracy's Place?
We use water-based acrylic paints. They are non-toxic and easy to clean off of your hands and our tables.
What should I wear?
We provide aprons to protect your clothing to the best of our ability. However, we highly recommend that you wear clothing that you do not mind getting a little bit of paint on. The water based acrylic paint that we use is easy to remove from hands and tables. However, it is not as easy to remove from clothing.
Can I bring in food?
Yes absolutely. You can bring in anything you choose to eat, call in something to be delivered or even bring in a caterer for a private event. All drinks must be purchased from us. (Please read "Can I BYOB")
What time do I need to arrive for a class?
We suggest arriving about 10-15 minutes early so that you can claim your seat and order your first drink, before class starts.
What is your cancellation policy?
We ask that you give us at least 48 hours for individual classes, in order for us to contact people on that waiting list to fill those seats. We ask for 72 hours notice for private events, If we are not given the full notice, we will keep the fee or deposit (as agreed upon). If you need to cancel please call us at 720-476-4431 or email
When does the new schedule come out?
We try to keep the current month and at least the one after on the website at all times.
What can I do if I miss a project that I really wanted to create?
We are always working on new paintings and projects so there is no guarantee that we will repeat one. You are more than welcome to contact us and let us know that you would like a specific project or painting. We are flexible and willing to find a time and date that would work for you (depending on availability on our schedule).
We also have private lesson times available everyday. Those are open to any project of your choice. However, we cannot offer string art, paint pours and resin classes during the private lessons.
If I come with a friend or a group, can we all sit together?
We absolutely do not want to make this an uncomfortable experience. If you let us know how many are in your party beforehand, we will reserve appropriate space for you and your party.
Does Tracy's have discounts for large groups?
Yes we do, if a party of 15 or more come in together we will give a $5 discount to everyone in the party. If the party is for a special celebration we will give the person of honor a free class with 10 or more guests, and a 50% for less than 10.
How do I cancel a class reservation?
Please see "What is your cancellation policy" before canceling any project. In order to cancel please call 720-476-4431 and leave a message if we are not available. Or you can email us at
Why are drinks not included for Special classes?
We bring in special guests and allow them to share their art genre with you, at a VERY discounted rate. In order for us to continue to operate our business, we ask that their guests purchase drinks from us.
