Fine Print, Disclaimers, and FAQ's

EXPECTATIONS:  You will always be happier with your outcome if you let it be uniquely you and don't compare to other artists. Everyone has their own style, and a more realistic flower is not necessarily more beautiful or ideal than a stylized or abstracted one. I personally ALWAYS prefer a unique interpretation. If you want an exact replica - there are always beautiful photographs. :)

TIMELINESS:  It's difficult for someone arriving late to be in the same groove as the group. I will always do my best to accommodate special situations, and I never turn away a fellow artist, but my experience is that it works best to start at the same time. It's typical for painting sessions to be roughly 2 hours, but I don't rush creativity! If you need a little extra time, it's just fine with me. 

YOUR WORK vs MY WORK:  It's common for guest artists to buy my sample pieces, but I prefer not to put my own brush to your canvas. That would imply that your work isn't good enough, and you simply wont ever hear that from me. Most of the paint party pieces that the artists didn't like were actually my favorites, and if I didn't live a minimal lifestyle, my walls would be full of them!!!

GUTS vs NEGATIVITY:  Being creative is risky, and hard to do in front of your friends. Be nice to yourself and to each other, and to me too please. <3

PAYMENT POLICY:  It is the Host's responsibility to facilitate payment. You can forward my preferred payment methods to your guest artists and have them pay me directly, or collect from them and pay me yourself, or any combination of the two. I don't chase people down for money. I hate to be hard-nosed about ANYTHING, but full payment no later than 7 days before the event is mandatory to make sure I'm able to have all the necessary supplies. It's just the way it has to be. I will accept short-notice additions if I am able. I try to have extra supplies on hand for unforeseen situations, but my own strict time-management needs require at least 7 days notice to guarantee I'll be prepared for your event.

REFUNDS:  If I cancel the event, you can expect a full refund. Otherwise, if you find yourself unable to attend, I will issue a compensatory voucher for a future event. Vouchers are transferable and don't expire.  

CLOTHING:  Unless otherwise stated, we use student grade acrylic paint or acrylic craft paint. It is not really washable from fabric, especially after it has dried, and it dries fairly quickly. SO please don't wear your best party dress. I bring aprons, but accidents happen. Hosts - we should also not do this on a carpet or area that is not washable. 

CLEAN-UP:  I'll be responsible for cleaning brushes and reusable palettes, and packing up my supplies. I'll bring a trash bag for disposable painting supplies and take them with me if you like. Cleaning up from refreshments and any necessary cleaning of your home or venue is your responsibility.

ALCOHOL:  The refreshments you serve your guests are up to you (as long as they are legal) but I prefer alcohol consumption to be light. You take full responsibility for what goes on in your home and the period of time immediately afterward if your guests are drinking. Some people say that a little wine loosens the brush. I think a comfortable spot with good friends is conducive to the free flow of creativity. Remember that real artists are generally supportive of one another, and many famous artists were good friends with their contemporaries. Please be a good friend and don't enable over-intoxication.
