Handiwork Art Parties - F.A.Q.

I'm interested, what is included?

Your reservation includes everything you and your guests need to create a beautiful and unique painting. No experience necessary! You will be supplied with a canvas, paints, brushes, aprons, as well as 2 hours of step-by-step instruction for your selected artwork. I also provide disposable tablecloths and paper towels.


How long does it take?

Each paint party usually involves about 2 hours of instruction time. Occasionally, the time will run over into 2.5 hours. Instruction will begin promptly 15 minutes after the selected start time so guests are encouraged to arrive on time.


Where do I go? What do I bring?

We come to you! In order to book an event, you will need to arrange to have a location with adequate tables and chairs for you and your guests. We will need access to running water and a sink.

You may want to also provide refreshments for your guests as we do not provide food or drinks.


How much does it cost?

We offer two adult party options and two child party options:

Adult option 1: $30 / per person 16x20 canvas (ages 13+)

Adult option 2: $25 / per person – 12x16 canvas  (ages 13+)

Child option 1: $20 / per person – 11x14 canvas  (ages 7 – 12)

Child option 2: $15 / per person – 8x10 canvas  (ages 4-6)


Is there a deposit required?

A $50 NON-REFUNDABLE booking fee ($25 for children’s parties) is due at the time of registration and will be applied to the final balance. 50% of the balance must be paid a week prior to the event, and the final headcount and remaining balance is due 48 hours prior to the event.


What is the cancellation policy?

An event may be rescheduled up to 48 hours prior to the event start time. When an event is rescheduled, the deposit will be applied to the rescheduled party. Any changes made after that window of time will require a new booking fee to reserve.


What happens in bad weather?

Our first concern is for the safety of the instructor and guests. When weather is an issue, we reserve the right to cancel an event; in addition, we allow cancellations from our clients. In the event that the party is cancelled due to inclement weather (i.e. State of emergency or weather advisories), you will be notified as soon as possible. You will then be permitted to reschedule through our website and your deposit will be applied towards the rescheduled party. You can always check for weather alerts on our facebook or instagram pages.


Can I take pictures?

We encourage you to take your own pictures and share your masterpieces on social media! Throughout the sessions we typically take photos to post on our website and social media sites. A group photo is usually taken afterwards as well. If you do not wish to have your photo taken for any reason, please let us know in advance so that we can respect your privacy.
