ART PARTIES FAQ
Payment & Fees
Can I register for an art party even if I don’t know all of the details yet?
Yes! Register as soon as you decide on the date, so we can hold it for you, even if you don’t know all of the details yet. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to reserve an art party time slot. All party details (painting theme, number of participants, kitchen rental, etc.) must be confirmed 7 days before the party date. If a theme is undecided within 7 days of your party we will host a “freestyle” painting party, in which each
participant can pursue their own thematic ideas. In that case, a cartoon/colouring party, a seasonal, age-appropriate theme will be chosen on your behalf. Party start and end times must be scheduled in accordance with our regular programming (classes, workshops, etc.) and studio holidays so that there is no overlap.
What is pre-authorized payment and why is it required?
In case of damages, additional participants, additional party time (most common), cleanup, or other incidentals we require the party host’s credit card information prior to the party and retain the right to charge up to $150 to cover extra costs incurred. The host’s credit card information will be kept confidential and will only be kept for a maximum of 1 month after the party.
What happens if we need to reschedule the party date?
If you wish to change your party date, we will do our best to accommodate you within our availability. A $50 fee will be charged to reschedule your party date. If you need to cancel your party, you will be issued a refund minus the non-refundable $50 deposit.
What if a participant don’t show up?
Unfortunately, we don’t issue refunds for guests that don’t show up. We prepare enough materials and canvases for each person booked in your party. If there are guests missing, another person is welcome to participate in the activity in their place.
What if my guests stay past my booked time?
For parties that stay over their booked time, the party host will be charged $30 per half hour.
Virtual Party Space
Are parties hosted on Zoom?
No, we don't use Zoom for security reasons. We will send party guests a direct link to a video conference they can join using Chrome browser, no need to install anything else!
How can guests interact virtually?
[Insert details about how the platform works: chat functions, webcam, mute, etc.]
Supplies & Pick Up
Do you supply invitations?
We have e-invitations that can be downloaded from our website. If you’re planning a painting party, please remind your guests to dress for mess!
Are art supplies provided?
If your guests are located in Markham, canvases are available for pick up. We provide 9 x 12" stretched canvas that can be upgraded to 12 x 16" for $5/person or 16 x 20" for $8/person.
What if I want to have additional supplies for my guests?
As the party host, you'll be responsible for any additional supplies you'd like to provide.
Participants & Supervision
How many adults would you recommend to help supervise a Children's Art Party?
At least one parent/guardian is required to be present at the party, but we recommend 1 adult per 6 children. Due to the online format, we recommend parents in the room to supervise their child. Adults who are supervising are not charged any fees.
Can adults participate in a Children’s Art Party too?
The children’s art party doesn’t have to be only for the kids! If adults want to join in the fun as well, the party host will need to include them in the number of participants. If a child is sick and can no longer attend the party, the adult supervisors are more than welcome to take the child’s place. The inclusion of adult participants in the party participant number will be at the discretion of the party host and should be relayed to us, with all other party details, at least 7 days in advance of the party.
What is the minimum age for children's parties?
We have no minimum age to participate in children’s parties! If the child is under 4 years of age, we do recommend adult assistance with the art activity as the party facilitator may not be able to give a detailed level of attention to every participating child.
How will photos be taken at the party?
Our staff is happy to help you take a group photo for your party. We also take photos of guests and their artwork for our website and future promotional purposes, and we sometimes share these photos on our Facebook and Instagram. We respect your privacy, so please let us know if you would prefer to opt out and not be featured on social media. We do not post names on social media.
