What kinds of private parties do you offer? Private parties are a blast, because we can make your vision a reality. Girls' Night Out, Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties, Retirement Celebrations, Corporate Departmental Team Building Exercises, Birthday Parties, Anniversary Parties, Mother/Daughter Night Out, Engagement Parties, Family Reunions, and Various Private Club Parties are just to name a few.
Do you have an age limit? Our age limit for private parties is middle school age. With our combined experience with children, we find children best respond to this level of painting at this age. However, we welcome elementary age children when painting with an adult during one of our adult/child classes.
Will you travel? We may travel up to 30 miles outside of the Galesburg, IL area. However, we may make some exceptions, depending on the location and additional fees would apply. Please inquire for more details.
What materials are included with a private party? We will supply all the materials necessary to complete an original acrylic painting, which you take home with you at the end of the night!
Can I choose my own painting? Absolutely! We'll design a painting that fits the theme and aesthetic of your party. We encourage hosts to browse the internet for ideas. However, we respect other artists and will only design our paintings from scratch.
What are your fees? The price for a private party starts at $35/person with a 10 person minimum. Parties must be booked 45 days in advance. We require a $30 non-refundable deposit due upon the booking date. This secures the date only.
What about fundraising? AD supports our community. For a fundraiser, AD will donate an amount based upon the number of painters signed up and the host can increase the fee to generate more. Please visit our fundraising page for details on AD fundraisers.
How do I go about inviting people? We will design an e-invite for you to send to your guests. However, a personal invite from you, the host, is always best. Many of our guests use Facebook to spread the word.
