FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does this work?
After we schedule a date for your event, I will create the marketing (website and social media for every event; printed flyers on request). Painters will purchase tickets through my website.
One week before the event, I will confirm the details of the event with your contact person. Please understand that although I encourage early ticket purchases, customers will likely purchase tickets less than one week before the event.
On the day before your event, I will call to confirm the number of guests.
On the day of your event, I will arrive 60-90 minutes early for set up. The venue should ensure tables and chairs are set up in advance of my arrival. I will bring all the painting supplies and materials. Guests are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy food and drinks. During the paint party, I will run the show and entertain while your staff offers guests refills. I will also encourage purchasing from your venue. Many paintings require a break in the middle of the event for dry time. This is another great opportunity for your staff and me to encourage your sales. I will clean up the painting materials at the end of the event.
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 venue will choose a painting for their event. Some ask a guest or guests 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 event time online and I will get in touch about planning the details of your event. If you don't see your preferred date or time, contact me and we may be able to work something out.
What do I need for my paint party?
I bring all the paint supplies: easels, paint, paint brushes, canvases, water jars, paint plates, aprons, paper towels and canvas hardware.
You provide the space, tables, chairs, water and, of course, food and/ or liquid encouragement.
How long does a paint party last?
Typically, parties will last about 3-4 hours plus set-up and clean-up time. I arrive 60-90 minutes before your event is to begin for set-up. Clean up will take 30-60 minutes.
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 guests can attend my event?
You may consider the space you have in your venue to determine how many guests you can accommodate. Each guest needs about two feet by two feet of space and will need to be able to see me while I am painting. We can discuss the maximum number of guests for your venue when we schedule your event.
How much does a party cost?
Tickets will be sold on my website and the cost for each ticket is:
Original Painting Experience:
$35 per "early bird" ticket (more than a week before party)
$40 per "last minute" ticket (one week or less before party)
$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:
$45 per "early bird" ticket (more than a week before party)
$50 per "last minute" ticket (one week or less before party)
I require at least $250 in ticket sales in advance of the party.
If the event has at least $400 in ticket sales, I will give 10% of all ticket sales to your venue!
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.
