Are some paintings more difficult than others? - Each image in our gallery was designed to be relatively simple, fun to paint, and teachable within 2 hours.
What is the custom painting option? - For an additional fee, our artists will design any idea you have in mind (limit one minor revision per image). You may also just provide an image that you find online (some restrictions may apply).
Is there an age limit for joining a party? - Because some of our events involve the consumption of alcoholic beverages, PaintPartyLife.com events are occasionally limited to guests who are 21 years of age or older. Please inquire ahead of time if this is a concern for you or a member of your party.
May we bring our own food and/or alcohol to the party? - If you are joining a public party held at one of our partnered venues, all food and alcohol will be sold on site. Please do not bring any outside food or beverage. However, if you are joining one of our private parties held in a home or office—bring it on!
Do I need to have any artistic skill to participate in a paint party? - Not at all! In fact, the less artistic you are, the more you will learn! If you are already a natural Michelangelo, well then you will feel right at home relaxing in a fun, creative environment. Either way, our Paint Party Pros will guide you step by step through crafting a beautiful masterpiece.
