HOW TO BOOK A PAINT PARTY - easy as 1-2-3!
INVITE YOUR GUESTS: Friends, Family, Co-workers, Neighbors, Couples Night, Mom & Me
(Idea: Make an “event” and have the first “paid” 20 folks join you at a pizza place.)
GUEST CONFIRMATION: Please confirm the number of painters at least 48 hours prior to party day. (I need time to prepare the canvases and supplies.)
PAYMENT: The hostess is requested to collect payment from the guests. Payment to Cathie’s Paint Parties can be made by cash, check, PayPal, Venmo or Credit Card.
PARTY DAY: I will arrive one- hour prior to the painting time to set up the room. Tables and chairs should be in place ready for me to set up for the painters. I will provide all the painting supplies including: table coverings, prepared canvases, easels, brushes, water bins, aprons, paper products and project samples.
MENU: Food or snacks and beverages are the choice of the hostess. You can keep it simple with cheese and wine, or provide a meal, depending on your party. Consider your menu choices while keeping the painting “time block” in mind. I.e.: If you are serving food, other than finger snacks, please hold that until the end of the painting time. Or if you want to eat prior to the painting portion of your party, the tables need to be free for me to set up (which I can do before guests arrive).
KIDS MENU: I have seen good results with a “break” in the middle for kid’s parties. You may want to serve something like pizza at the half-way point as a break and save the birthday cake and gifts for the end of the party. Just a suggestion…
More About the Class
Please allow approximately one hour before your party for me to “set up” the space. We start with a pre-determined design picked by the hostess. I will bring a canvas (sizes vary) for each painter, usually base-coated with the background color -which helps with drying time. We will draw our design on using my pre-drawn paper pattern, so no worries about the common complaint of “I can’t draw a stick figure”. Other supplies that will be provided are: canvas table coverings, easels, brushes, etc. as well as the painted class sample and a 4×6” photo for each painter. Allowing about 2 to 3 hours of painting time, with my step-by-step instruction and limited class size (maximum of 20), we will have fun while you complete your own “ready to hang” piece of art!
Special pricing of only $250. for up to 10 children (ages 8 to 13) – Adults are welcome to paint at the “Large Party” rate of $30. each
