What is a Bend Painting Party event?
Bend Painting Parties are social events where you can create your own painted masterpiece on canvas in a relaxed, stress-free group environment.
Do I need to know how to paint?
I often hear “I am not artistic”, or “I can’t even draw a stick figure”. Well, this is the perfect event where absolutely NO experience is necessary to have a amazingly creative time.
I am a professional artist and will guide you through the scheduled event with simple, step-by-step instructions. Perhaps you are an aspiring Georgia O’Keefe or Pablo Picasso just looking to explore your creative side and color outside the lines, you get to take home a painting that is personally yours. One that you made yourself!
What is included in the event price?
Each Bend Painting Party event costs $45 per person and I provide all materials and instruction you will need to create your personal masterpiece. This includes your own pre-stretched canvas, paint, paint palette, use of brushes, easels and apron.
Are reservations necessary or can we pay at the door?
Online registration is required to guarantee a spot at the event.
What is the age requirement to participate?
No age requirement, rather the ability to focus on painting for two hours.
What should I wear?
Please dress appropriately. I provide aprons to help protect your clothes to a degree, however I cannot be responsible for any clothing or accessories that might be blemished by a paint smudge or two. We will all be using acrylic paints and although they are water-based, they are permanent. Please take this into consideration when you decide what to wear for the painting party events.
What kind of paint is used?
We use non-toxic acrylic paints, and while these are water based paints, they are not clothes friendly. We provide aprons to help protect your clothes, however cannot be responsible for any clothing or accessories that might be blemished by a paint smudge or two.
Can I take my painting home the night of the event?
Of course! You take your painting home with you. I also want your masterpieces to arrive home safely. Acrylic paint dries rather quickly, however I do not want your newly created painting to leave paint smudges on the seats of your vehicle. I suggest bringing an old towel or plastic trash bag to protect your vehicle. In fact, make it easy for yourself, and set up a protected area in your vehicle where you can lay your new masterpiece before you ever arrive to the painting party.
What is the refund policy?
Ticket refunds can be honored 7 days prior to a scheduled event. Tickets are non-refundable within 7 days of the scheduled event for which you purchased a ticket. If you cannot make your event, your registration may be assigned to a family or friend. I require your email authorization for this transfer and the names of the individual(s) taking your place. I must adhere to this policy. Consideration may be allowed to apply your registration to another event, but will be on a case by case basis and you must contact me ahead of time in writing. May only be applied within 60 days of your cancelled event. No refunds are given for ‘no shows’. More information can be viewed on the Terms and Conditions page.
