Hosting an art event at home  is ALWAYS a fun, creative & unique way to spend time with friends! It is so relaxing and people just LOVE these unique artsy parties!

You do not need to worry about providing anything other than the food, drink, chairs (I have some tables), and of course friends! I provide all the materials needed from tablecloths to easels, aprons, canvases and paints etc! I take great pride in making sure you and your guests have a professional, FUN, and memorable event (with no mess left behind!)

These home events include: Girl’s Night In, Bridal Events, Outdoor Painting Events, Couple’s Painting, Brunch & Art Events & More!

It is important to remind your guests that NO art experience is needed! I will guide you and your guests step by step to creating your own unique masterpiece that you will feel good about and enjoy.  I can also help you create a theme for your party which always makes for a great time! Creativity is in every one of us & I will encourage your inner artist come out to play!

TESTIMONIAL:  “I have attended three Grape Canvas Parties events and was immediately put to ease by the owner Michelle’s incredible patience, creativity, and ability to make even the most unartistic person feel like they can create and successfully accomplish the project.  The detailed final project was broken up into easy manageable steps in a fun, pressure and stress free atmosphere.  I was most impressed with Michelle’s ability to not only lead the program and make every participant feel comfortable, but give suggestions to individualize their painting and find time for 1:1 assistance. I’ve been to other painting events where I felt rushed, the instructors were not able to pull the group together to keep everyone on the same page, and steps were missed. I am a bit of a perfectionist and have felt in the past that I was annoying the leaders by asking them to repeat instructions. Michelle has the patience of a saint and never stops being encouraging.  At this point, I will only attend and host these art events with Grape Canvas Parties!” ~Sulekha Z.
