How do we sign in?
A sign in sheet will be provided. Please sign it and return it to the desk.
What is the party timeline?
Parties will be 2 hours in length. Please arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled party time. We need a few minutes of closed door time between parties to clean.
The art instruction portion of the party will take approximately 1 hour. (This is a good time for parents to prep for the non-art portion of the party. Snacks and cake setup etc.)
The second half of the party is the parent/guardians time. The instructors will be busy finishing projects and cleaning. We will help when we can but we are pretty busy during this time. A budget of 45 minutes for snacks and cake and 10 minutes of clean up works very well.
How many guests can I invite?
10 guests including the birthday person are included in the booking cost. If you choose to invite more, the cost is $15 per guest. If a party goes over 15 guests, a second instructor is needed (at a cost of $25). We will call prior to the party for an approximate number of attendees- you will not be charged for no-shows.
What should the participants wear?
Old t-shirts, smocks, hand me downs and old shoes. This studio uses real paint and inks that in most cases will not wash out. Your favorite new clothes are not invited to this party.
We don't want anyone to get hurt, so we hope you will help us to enforce the rules. Thanks!
- No running. There are tripping and slipping hazards in the studio. Nice and slow Is Our Motto.
- Please do not let your group climb on the furniture, benches on or under the tables.
- Please do not allow your group to touch the art supplies or art work on the shelving.
Special bulletin for Drip Drizzle and Drop parties!
We invite parents to stay in the front room during parties that take place in the painting room, if the instructor needs assistance they will ask. We encourage you to sneak in for a photo op at the end for sure. If you would like your canvas stretched on to a frame we can do that. We have a variety of framing options. It usually takes about a week.
