Does the hostess of the event get a discount or paint free?
Please understand that unlike a direct sales business, this is a professional arts and entertainment service that is coming into your home or business. You are hiring a trained artist and licensed,board certified and registered art therapist to set up an art space at your location, and provide a guided class. Services includes: Step-by-step instruction, all materials, prep time before the party and clean-up after event, along with bringing assistants as needed, and expertise of the instructor.
What if I can’t get the minimum number of guests?
There is a 10, 15 or 30 guest minimum (depending on type of party). The cost is the same if you have under the minimum. *Anything above the minimum will be paid the day of the event.
Do you provide wine?
No. You provide the wine, food, people, and tables/chairs. We will come with ALL the supplies needed to create ART! This includes, Instruction, Easels, canvases, paints, aprons, tablecloths, paints etc…Fun! *If an extra table or two is needed, we are happy to provide…But we must know ahead of time if you should need an extra table.
What if I can’t paint a straight line?
So we say…paint it crooked! Seriously! No artistic experience is needed…We will show you step by step how to create your own unique piece of art. Besides, It is all about having fun, tapping into your creative side (and yes, you have one!) and enjoying life, your own fabulous Uniqueness & being with friends! No Rules…Just Relax, Laugh, Paint & Have Fun!
What do we paint?
You can choose a painting from one of the galleries or we can work together to choose a fun theme for your event! (*We have 20+ years of themed party planning experience!) *You can choose canvases, wine/beer glasses, vases, wine bottles or painted wood. You are welcome to send us ideas, paintings you like and or elements that you would like to include in the painting for a custom painting for your event. *Please note that custom paintings are an additional $50 or you can select one that is already created at no additional cost. Once a deposit is received, we can paint a unique work of art that we will teach you and your guests step by step!
What if I have to cancel my event for some reason?
Cancellations a month ahead of event, a full deposit can be given (minus $20 if flyer was created for your event). Cancellations up to two weeks before event can receive a 50% deposit. Cancellations anytime after two weeks before your event, deposits are non-refundable.
What if some of my guests cancel and don’t come?
There is a minimum number of artists required. If there are fewer guests than the minimum requirement, the charge will remain for that minimum (For example: if you have 8 guests at your home party, that’s fine! We will just charge for the min. of 10)
**It is Highly recommended that you ask your guests to pay when they RSVP to your Paint party to ensure that their spot is reserved.**
It is also a great idea to create a facebook event to get your guests excited and remind them of the event as it draws closer. Posting a picture of the painting on the event, is a great way for your guests to see what fun is in store at your party! (Be sure to tag Grape Canvas Parties and make us a co-host so they can check us out!) *We can also create a lovely flyer for your special event for facebook or emails!
