Step 1: Choose a date, venue, and theme

I will create a custom painting to fit your theme. The design will need to be able to be broken down into step-by-step instructions for a variety of skill levels.

You'll want to schedule an hour for set up, around two hours to paint (depending on the age group), and an hour to clean up.

You provide the location, tables, chairs, and people. I take care of the rest!

Step 2: Sell Tickets

I can design and print tickets for you. Just let me know how many you want. This helps planning supplies and table set up for the event. (Tickets will be simple black printing on colored card stock.)

Ticket sales will need to end at least 2 days prior to the event, money collected, and a head-count given to me, so I can make sure supplies are in order. 

A pretty standard ticket price for an event like this is $25. 

Your organization keeps 45% of the sales. The rest would cover my costs.

I can accommodate up to 50 painting students, but I would need some volunteers to help with any number over 30. (I suggest 1 extra volunteer for every 10 additional people. For example, if you have 50 coming, I'll need 2 volunteers). 

I also recommend a microphone so everyone can hear if there are more than 30.

Step 3: Set Up

You'll need to have the tables and chairs set up at least one hour prior to the event. I will set up supplies.

I will provide:


  • Sample custom painting that fits your theme

  • Tablecloths

  • 11"x14" Canvasses

  • Paint

  • Brushes

  • Paper plates for palettes

  • Bowls for rinsing

  • Paper towels

  • Instruction

Step 4: Enjoy the Event

I try to keep a lighthearted and fun atmosphere while providing step-by-step instruction, making sure that everyone is comfortable. You can expect to see me moving around a lot to check up on people and provide encouragement. I assume no prior painting experience and a variety of skill levels. However, advanced students will also feel at home! I like to give students a little freedom with their designs so that no two paintings are exactly the same at the end of the night.

I'll bring an invoice to the event.
