Paint Night

FAQ

1. What is a "Paint Night"?

 

"Paint Nights" or "Painting Parties" are private or public events held over the course of a couple of hours where an experienced artist guides participants on how to paint a portrait in a step-by-step fashion, showing them different techniques and tricks with all sorts of brush styles. Ages 10+ are welcome in this fun and creative environment, and best of all, you get to take your masterpiece home! Watered-down acrylic paint is used for this particular practice.

 

2. What do I have to bring?

 

Just yourself! All supplies are provided. It is however, recommended to wear clothing that you do not care about getting paint on!

4. How do I get paint off of my clothing?

 

Upon first sight of paint on your clothing, head to any sink as soon as possible and run the stain under cold water until you have removed some or most of the paint. Apply dawn dish soap or laundry detergent and rub the affected fabric together with your hands. Throw in the wash. If the stain is still having trouble washing out, try rubbing with vegetable oil, acetone, or isopropyl alcohol. The paint used at this particular paint event is watered down for faster drying times, so it is unlikely that a stain should persist if you follow these steps right away.

5. How long does an event usually last?

 

Events last anywhere from 1-3 hours at a time. This is dependant on how big the group is, the canvas size, and if the event is held indoors or outdoors, as paint will dry quicker outdoors. Since paint is watered down for faster drying times, the event is hours shorter than it would have been if not for that.

 

6. How long does set up/take down take?

 

The artist will arrive 1-2 hours before the scheduled event time for set up. Clean-up usually takes around a maximum of 45 minutes.
