How to make a party reservation: Parties must be scheduled 2 weeks in advance. Deposits to hold a date are NOT REFUNDABLE, but if you need to change the party date there may be some flexibility if at least 2 weeks notice is given. Before scheduling with the studio please visit  the Gallery Tab for art choice ideas, check with your friends for date options that work, check the website calendar for availability and then call 717-545-5815 to reserve the date. For private adult paint parties, there is required deposit of 8 tickets to hold a date. For children’s Birthdays a $50 deposit is required.

Custom art:  If time allows I can help create custom art for your event for an additional $45. 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:  I do not offer multiple art choices at private events, but there are color choices for paint.
