Public Parties

These are scheduled by me and held at Maureen Marks Art Studio, 103 Sunset Ave, Harrisburg, PA 17112. All ages are welcome.  Please email me at if you have questions about age appropriateness for the art. Click the Public Party tab for lots more information.

Private Parties

If you want to host a group of your friends, co-workers, scout troop, church group, etc. contact me for more information or to schedule your event. You need 5 friends plus yourself to schedule an event.  A six ticket deposit is required to hold a date.

Payments: Private parties require the minimum (6 tickets) paid upfront as one payment within 1 week of setting date. If payment is not made the date cannot be held.  After the minimum is met the rest of the tickets can be set up to be paid for on line by individuals. Cancellations:  The 6 person tickets are not refundable.  A cancellation for a ticket will only be issued if there are more than 6 guests and there is a 1 week notice.  Cancellation fees apply as noted in the cancellation tab.   Guests are also welcome to have someone take their place in lieu of cancellation.

How to make a party reservation: Deposits to hold a date are NOT REFUNDABLE, but if you need to change the party date I can be flexible if at least 2 weeks notice is given. Click the red Private Parties tab above and fill out the form under Private Parties. Visit my Gallery page for art choice ideas.  For all private parties, there is required deposit of 6 tickets (price varies by party depending on art choice) to hold a date and is not refundable if you cancel event.  Children’s Birthday Parties are a $50 deposit.

Custom art:  If time allows I can help create a custom art for your event for an additional $35.  You can factor the cost in to each guests cost or pay for it as the host.  Please keep in mind that I have my own style and way of creating art so if you find something on the internet it will not be an exact copy of what you see. 

Multiple art at one party:  Often private parties want a choice at their parties.  Some art is easy to set up this way so please contact the studio at to discuss it.  There is an additional charge of $5 per guest to do 2 different artworks as it involves extra prep and set up time.
