What is Uncork’d Art™?
Uncork’d Art is a creative way for people to connect and spend a day or night out with friends and family. We started off as a “paint and sip” art studio, but has since evolved the paint and sip concept into an art-themed lounge, wine bar, and studio where you can gather, eat, drink, and/or paint all under the same roof. You have the choice to engage in one or all of those things… its up to you! We are still the great Uncork’d Art that you have grown to love in which we offer step-by-step instructional art classes, but you can now engage in other creative and artistic experiences. If you don’t feel like painting, you can walk in and grab a bite to eat or just chill. If you feel like painting original work of art without any guidance, while listening to live music*, you can do that too! Whatever you like all in the same place!
Welcome to Uncork’d Art™… an extraordinary social destination.
*Varies by location.
How does the painting stuff fit in?
We offer our standard Just for Fun classes and Open Paint sessions. We also have special events from time to time.
Can you tell more about the Just For Fun classes?
You have an opportunity to choose a featured painting on a specific date of our calendar. Each session is between 2 or 3 hour step-by-step system guided by instructors aka Art Entertainers to help create your very own masterpiece. Instruction will be given on creation of the themed piece; however, you are more than welcome to create your own masterpiece during the scheduled session. Reservations are typically required for our instructional Just For Fun classes.
Can you tell me more about the Open Paint sessions?
An Open Paint session, is for those who want to do their own thing! We are there should you need some guidance but there is no step-by-step instruction during Open Paint. You are welcome to use any of our gallery paintings for inspiration, or create something entirely your own! Depended on the locations, walk-in are accepted for open paint sessions, but are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Access is not guaranteed and is dependent upon space and availability.
Is there a minimum number of people required to reserve a Just for Fun art class?
For “Just for Fun” public classes, we require a minimum of 8 people. If you book a class and it is canceled due to not meeting the requirement of people attending, then you will be issued a credit towards your next class. We would typically let you know 1 or 2 days before the class, but on rare occasions, we would tell you let you know on the day of the class. We hate canceling classes as much you hate for your class to be cancelled.
How do I cancel a reserved Just For Fun public class or Open paint session?
Any changes to your reservation must be made AT LEAST 2 DAYS BEFORE YOUR SESSION! If you do not cancel or reschedule, 2 days prior to your scheduled session, you will lose your payment. If you do not show or cancel, then the credit card that made the reservation remains charged. As long as you cancel prior to 2 days before the scheduled session time, you will be provided a full credit that you can use for another session.

What happens if I am on the wait-list?

If no one cancels, you will not receive a notification. You can go ahead and register for an available session anytime!

What is the policy for bad weather?
If there is bad weather in the area, by default, we will make a determination to cancel sessions based on the federal government operating status in the Washington DC metropolitan area. If the “Federal agencies are CLOSED” according to OPM, we will cancel sessions, otherwise sessions will take place as scheduled. To find out if the federal government in Washington, DC is closed, please visit http://www.opm.gov/status/. If it is the weekend, we will follow the weather reports, and follow-up by email with our status.
If we cancel, we will attempt to notify registrants using the phone number and email address listed on their registration forms. It is important to provide us with accurate contact information when you register. There are no refunds, credits, transfers or exchanges because of bad weather providing Uncork’d Art is open. Any classes that are canceled will be rescheduled or you will be given credit to your Uncork’d Art account for a future date.
