FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What paintings are available to choose?

My available paintings are shown on the "choose a painting" page.  The available paintings change from time to time, so check back often!  I take requests for new paintings - just let me know what you have in mind. Typically, the host or hostess will choose a painting for their group.  Some ask their group for input.  Your call!

What dates and times are you available for parties?

I offer online reservations and I do not require a deposit to make a reservation.  Reserve your time online and I will get in touch about planning the details of your party.  If you don't see your preferred date or time, contact me and we may be able to work something out.

How old do guests need to be to attend?

I don't have an age requirement, however, most paintings would be best suited for children 10 years old and older.  You should check with your host too.  Some hosts plan their paint party to accommodate younger guests.  Some hosts plan to serve wine and gear their party towards adult guests only. 

What do I need for my paint party?

I bring all the paint supplies you need: easels, paint, paint brushes, canvases, water jars, paint plates, aprons, paper towels and canvas hardware.

You provide the space, tables and chairs.  If you wish, you can provide wine and snacks for your guests or ask your guests to bring their favorites to share.

How long does a paint party last?

Typically, parties will last about 3-4 hours plus set-up and clean-up time.  I arrive one hour before your party is to begin for set-up.  Clean up will take 30 minutes. 

Do you offer parties in my city?

I offer parties in Oregon in the following cities and the surrounding areas:

Hillsboro, Aloha, Beaverton, Sherwood, Tigard and Portland.

If you live in other cities within 35 miles of Aloha, Oregon, I am happy to travel to your party with a minimum of $300 in ticket sales for your paint party. 

Do you offer fundraising opportunities?

Always!  It is the heart of Meg Makes It to always give back to our community.  Please check out our giving page for more information. 

How many friends can attend my party?

 

You may consider the space you have in your home or at a privately booked venue to determine how many guests you can accommodate.  Each guest needs about two feet by two feet of space.  $200 minimum per party is required, but I don't have a minimum guest count.  

How much does a party cost?

(Kids' parties have different pricing, keep scrolling!)  

We offer two options for purchase:

1. You can plan your party and ask your guests to buy tickets through my website. I require a minimum of $200 in tickets to be sold for every party and the 7th ticket is FREE!  Tickets cost: 

     Original Experience:

     $35 per "early bird" ticket (more than a week before party)

     $40 per "last minute" ticket (one week or less before party)

     Wood Sign and Abstract Experience:

     $40 per "early bird" ticket (more than a week before party)

     $45 per "last minute" ticket (one week or less before party)

     Abstract Pet Experience:

     $50 per "early bird" ticket (more than a week before party)

     $55 per "last minute" ticket (one week or less before party)

2. The host or hostess can buy a package of tickets in advance.  With this option, I offer a "bulk pricing" discount which means the cost is less per person.  You may ask your guests to pay you for their ticket.  This is also a great option if you'd like to give a party as a gift!  Prices for host packages:

    Up to 8 people: $260 ($300 for wood sign & abstract, $375 for pet paintings)

    9-10 people: $315 ($360 for wood sign & abstract, $450 for pet paintings)

    11-12 people: $365 ($420 for wood sign & abstract, $525 for pet paintings)

    13-14 people: $415 ($475 for wood sign & abstract, $590 for pet paintings)

For parties larger than 14 people, contact me for a custom quote. 

Do you offer parties for kids?

Absolutely!  I will set up and clean up of all our art fun, teach all the kids and provide all supplies.  You can sit back and relax (or paint with us)!  Upon request, I will prepare a special painting to match your party's theme.  Kids' parties typically last two hours plus set up (45-60 min.) and clean up time (30 min.).  

BONUS: I charge less for Kids' paint parties!  Because every party is geared towards specific requests, I do custom quotes for each party.  However, to give you an idea of cost, I typically charge $20 per child.  I do offer discounts for larger parties. 

What is your refund policy?

I order supplies and materials in advance for all my paint parties based on the number of tickets sold so that I am prepared to make every guest's experience an amazing one.  Unfortunately, all tickets are non-refundable.
