Everything You Wanted to Know about Spirited Art® Kid’s Parties
How many people and what are the costs?
We require a minimum of 12 children for a children’s party, at $20 per person. The maximum number of attendees is 40 for Auburn, Chattanooga, Jacksonville, Little Rock and Scranton, 50 for Huntsville and 60 for Richmond (it’s all the easels we have!).
Can parents and siblings paint too?
ABSOLUTELY! The more the merrier. All painters are $20. There is no fee for children and parents who do not paint.
How do I pick a date and time?
Send us an email and request a date. Ideally, we would like your request one month in advance of the party, because we try and update the calendar on a rolling monthly basis. The calendar fills up quickly, so email us as soon you can!
Weekend parties start at 10:00 am (Saturdays only) and at 2:00 pm. During the school year, weekday parties may be scheduled from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm depending on the availability of our artists.
Do I need to make a deposit?
A deposit of $120, which pays for six people, is required to book your party. Once we have received your deposit, your party will be officially listed on our calendar!
Do I have to write a check for the deposit?
No. We can accept a credit card over the phone with your approval. If you would like to write and mail a check, please see your location’s home page for proper mailing address.
Please make the check payable to Spirited Art® and write the date and time of your party in the memo section.
What is your refund policy, just in case?
Please note that we will happily refund your deposit up to three weeks before your scheduled party. Deposits are non-refundable, and a credit will be issued, for cancellations during weeks two and three before your scheduled party. Unfortunately, 100% of your deposit will be forfeited (and no credit will be issued) if you need to cancel within 7 days of your scheduled party. We hope you will understand that there is just not enough time to schedule another class.
When is the balance due?
The balance is due at your party.
What else do I need to do?
Please email the following information to us:
- the name and theme of your party,
- your phone number,
- your child’s name and age
- the painting you have chosen, and
- the estimated number of attendees and/or names and their general age group.
Can we bring party food?
You may bring any food or drink you would like. We have a refrigerator on site that you are welcome to use too. Be sure to bring utensils, plates and paper goods. We only provide the painting supplies. (Richmond Studio: This includes you too! You may bring any food and non-alcoholic beverage you would like for children’s parties.)
How long does a party last?
Parties last for two hours. You may come 15 minutes early to set up. Our kid’s paintings are designed to take approximately 1 hour, so there will be plenty of time for socializing and cake and ice cream!
If you would like an additional 30 minutes of socializing time, we are happy to accommodate. The cost is $50 per additional 30 minutes.
How do I choose a painting?
You may choose your painting from among any of the kid’s paintings offered by Spirited Art®. The best place to see our paintings is on our website.
What should we wear?
We provide smocks/aprons, but recommend that you wear older, paint friendly party clothes. Everyone WILL get paint on their hands at some point during the party!
What time can I set up?
You may come 15 minutes before your party to set up. Additional time may be scheduled upon request.
Do I need to clean up?
We ask that you allow time to clean up food, drinks and party supplies. We will do the rest.
Anything else I should know?
We have Pandora radio if you would like to select your own music.
Please feel free to stop in and see the studio if it will help you plan your party, especially if you haven’t painted with us before!
