What to paint:

Things to know:

  • Once you have read all of the information on this page and are ready to book your event, get in touch through the form below and we will send through an invoice for the deposit
  • Once we receive your deposit we will add your event to our calendar
  • We will contact you a few days before the party to confirm numbers and a featured painting
  • The birthday family can arrive 30 minutes before the party to setup
  • Advise all guests to arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled party time, so they can grab an apron & get settled in before we start painting at the scheduled party time, we will still need to stick to our 2 hour timeframe even if your group arrives late as we may have another event after yours
  • We recommend dressing the kids in something you wouldn't mind getting paint on
  • Plan to bring paintings home with you after the party, we have drying stations so they are ready to travel
