1. Chose What You Will Be Painting or Crafting and select a project. NNY Paint Party can create custom projects, but please allow sufficient time for us to create it.
2. Invite Your Friends - Be sure to invite guests early. NNY Paint Party requires at least 8 total painters for private parties. Life happens and people cancel, therefore it is suggested to either collect the money prior to the party and / or invite more that 8 people. Remember that hosts paint for free when 8 or more guests attend.
3. Table Space - Be sure to have enough space for your guests to paint. Four to six people can typically comfortably paint at a 6 foot table. Be sure to ask me if you need to borrow tables.
4. Lighting -Try to have enough lighting so that guests aren't in shadow. Sometimes placing table lamps on raised platforms right on the end tables can really help or try locating tall lamps in the party room.

Do I need to bring anything?
No, we provide everything: paint, canvas, brush and apron. Often times, at private parties the host will prefer that guest come early to grab a drink and snack and to start relaxing. If the event is at a bar or restaurant, please do not bring your own food or drink. We work with establishment owners to bring the party to their venue so that everyone can enjoy their food and drink while painting.
What should I wear?
Aprons will be provided, but please dress accordingly. Some of the projects are a little splattery - and you may get paint on your clothes. We suggest wearing something that is replaceable. Acrylic paint is tough to get out of fabric.
