Frequently Asked Questions

What is "Artertainment"?

 

Art Entertainment is not your typical art instruction. It's focused on creating a fun atmosphere for the patron while teaching them to create a beautiful piece of art. We like to call it "Artertainment!" You get to dine out/have drinks, socialize, and be an artist, all at the same time! It's truly a fun and unique experience. We put the "ART" in "pARTy!" Come join us- we can't wait to paint with you!

 

 

How Much Does It Cost?

 

Most regular Adult and Mega Bites Kids public paint parties range from $30 to $45 per painter. (This includes wine glass painting parties.) We also offer special event paint parties, so check back often , "Like" our Facebook page, and subscribe to our newsletter for all the latest updates. We will soon be offering wood cut outs and Canva- Clock public paint parties. The cost for travel private parties for both kids and adults ranges from $35 to $50 per painter. There is a $60 to $80 Deposit, (Depending on the painting selected,) & a minimum of 8 paid painters for ALL private parties. (Custom paintings are subject to a $5 per painter increase, & the deposit will reflect this increase as well.)

 

We now offer in- studio paint party packages for children. Prices vary & are listed under the "Paint Parties For Children" tab.

Although aprons are provided for most events, you should probably wear something that you don't mind getting paint on. Accidents happen and acrylic paint DOES NOT come out of clothing. This is especially true for Mega Bites Kids events.

We provide all painting supplies. We also have a bottle opener on hand, should you forget yours. We do not supply snacks, drinks, ice, plates, cups, napkins, or anything other than painting supplies.

What Size Canvas Is Used?

 

For Most Regular Adult Paint Parties, a 16 x 20 inch canvas is used, however, this does vary sometimes. The canvas size will be listed next to the title of the class if it is not the standard 16 X 20.   For Most Kid's Classes, an 8 X 10 Canvas is used. A 12 x 16 inch canvas is used for Canva- Clocks.

Smaller sized canvases are used for the Mommy & Me, Quick Bite, Teen, & Tween Paint Parties. They range from an 8x10 to a 9x12 depending on the party.

What Happens At Wine Glass Painting Parties?

Each painter will receive TWO glasses to paint. Glasses must be taken home and BAKED for 30 minutes, (Detailed instructions will be given at the class itself, & they are also listed below,) or they will need to be allowed to dry for 21 days. They must be hand washed.

Wine Glass Baking Instructions:

 

1. Place glasses in the oven while it is COOL. 2. Preheat to 350 degrees. 3.Once the oven reaches 350, set the timer for 30 minutes. 4.After the timer goes off, allow the oven to cool completely- DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE GLASSES YET! 5. Once oven is COMPLETELY cool, glasses are safe to remove and design is set. For best results, hand wash only. Wash on top rack of dishwasher only at your own risk.

Can You Really Teach Me To Paint ANY Of The Paintings You Feature?

 

ABSOLUTELY. We do all of the hard work for you. Some of the paintings that require complex drawing will have the image pre-drawn on the canvas/ wine glass prior to the event. We give simple, easy to follow instruction to ensure a beautiful finished product. Trust us. EVERYONE can do this!
