FAQs

What materials do you use?

Acrylic painting events use soft-body acrylic paints in all necessary colors to complete the painting and canvas boards that will stay rigid while you're painting. Watercolor painting events use cold-pressed watercolor paper and any colors of paint necessary to complete the painting.

 

Can we paint even larger or smaller?

Parties can request painting in a different size, but this may impact the price per person.

 

How does the painting tutorial work?

I will create a painting beforehand and acquire all materials necessary to recreate the same painting at your party. On the day of your party, I will walk you and your friends through a fun and educational Bob-Ross style painting experience.

Will I have to make the same painting every time?

Nope! Your painting party experience will be totally customized to your event's theme, the time of year, and/or your guests' interests! When you book a party, feel free to suggest some ideas of what you and your friends would be excited to make, but know that the final piece you will be working on will be a surprise for the day of your party.

Where can my friends and I have our party?

I currently do events in Savannah GA, and the Central Florida area. You are welcome to have your event right in your home or any other event space you have access to. I would recommend hosting acrylic painting activities outdoors, but the choice is yours! The host of the event is responsible for procuring the event space.

How many people need to attend my party?

Acrylic painting events require a minimum number of 8 people and a maximum number of 20 people. Watercolor painting events require a minimum number of 6 people and a maximum number of 20 people.

How long will the painting take?

Painting time can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, depending on complexity of the artwork and number of attendees. This does not include time necessary for paintings to dry, or set-up time prior to the start of the event.

How is payment collected for my party?

The host is responsible for all of the party's funds. 50% of the total charges will be collected via Zelle, Venmo, or emailed invoice in order to secure your party's date. The host is then responsible for the remaining balance at the time of event, prior to the start of the event.

What do I do if my schedule changes?

You will be able to reschedule your event 1 time within 30 days of the originally scheduled date. Your deposit will be held to put towards your rescheduled date. If you cancel your party after you've already rescheduled it, the deposit is nonrefundable.

What if I want a solo painting experience?

I would be delighted to help start you on your watercolor painting journey! Rates vary based on your goals and the time of our sessions. Feel free to contact me and we will figure out how to tailor a painting experience to your custom needs.

What if I am a business looking to schedule a party at my location?

I would be delighted to work with you! I will still provide my own supplies, but I will need to use your sink and water for my events. Tickets for the event will need to be sold through your business, and I will collect my payment from your business only. If you are planning on scheduling the event before people have paid for their tickets through your business, I require deposits based on the number of attendees signed up at the date 1.5 weeks before the event. Deposit must be paid in full no later than 1 week before the event. If there are not enough attendees signed up to meet my event minimum at the date 1 week before the event, the event will need to be rescheduled. The event can be rescheduled 1 time within 30 days before the deposit becomes nontransferable. Due to the cost of supplies and prep-work required to make your event a success, deposits can be transferred one time, but are always nonrefundable. Your remaining balance on the day of the event will be collected no later than 1 day after the event. If the remaining balance cannot be paid on or before the day following the event, a late fee of $50 will be charged for each day the balance is past due.
