Paint for Pleasure Parties FAQ’s

What is a Paint Party?
Simply put a paint party is a get together where everyone paints a specific picture with my guidance it is also an opportunity for you to do something relaxing and fun just for you, no previous experience (or creativity) is needed. Come by yourself, come with a friend or a group of friends, bring your favourite beverage and something to snack on (we have a lovely caterer who can supply some yummy food – which can be booked as well) and relax, good times are guaranteed and you will also end up taking home your very own masterpiece. All supplies are provided.
Why should I attend?
Painting is therapeutic, it relaxes the mind like yoga relaxes the body. It is very easy to forget your stresses whilst painting so it acts as a form of therapy as your mind is focused completely on the paint and nothing else and it is a fantastic way to unwind and enjoy the social atmosphere. Plus, you will learn a new skill and every time you attend you will take home a new painting.
Do I need to bring a friend, or can I come alone?
No, you do not, you can come alone and use it as an opportunity to meet some new people in a relaxed and fun environment.
What happens if I have never painted before?
You will not be alone so do not let it worry you. In fact, these parties are designed for those who do not have any or much prior painting experience. These are not art classes with expectation on a level of skill, these are parties (so think fun!) and I will guide you through what you need to know to ensure you feel happy and relaxed throughout the entire party. Each Party will have a painting we will focus on replicating and each painting has been carefully selected to be able to be replicated no matter your skill level, within the time allocated. However, you can also do your own thing, there are no rules except that you have a great time.
How much are the Parties?
Between $35 and $55 per person – which includes all materials including art paper or a canvas and the use of an apron. You just need to BYO your own drinks and nibbles – plastic cups are provided – please bring your own cooler bag and any special glasses etc. Plus, don’t forget you will have a painting to take home at the end of the party.
We also have gift certificates available and discounts for group bookings of 6 or more people.
What if I need to cancel?

Please contact us immediately in this instance. If you are transferring your ticket to someone else please advise us via email/text who will be attending in your place at least 48hrs prior to the event (ensure this is confirmed). A lot of planning goes into these events so we cannot unfortunately just refund your ticket.

What about food and drink?
We are strictly BYO, so feel free to bring your favourite alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage (bottle shop a few doors up) and whatever food you would like to nibble on (We have teamed up with a lovely caterer and you can book grazing box options), please bring your own cooler bag, we do have plastic cups available but if you have a favourite glass please bring it.

COVID - in the case that there is an unavoidable Covid Lockdown
COVID – in the case that there is an unavoidable Covid Lockdown – workshops will be rescheduled to a date in the future. At least (7) days notice will be given for any new date for a rescheduled classes.
A lot of time, effort and expense goes into my events so no refunds can be offered as this situation is completely out my control.
I understand that the rescheduled date may not suit everyone but unfortunately I can only reschedule once. It is a lot of work for me to reschedule events as my calendar is worked well in advance.
In the case of ‘After School Classes’ I will be creating videos for home activities where necessary.
Thank you for your understanding in these uncertain times.
