Off Site Event- Family-Focus Mom’s Event

May 9 at 10:00 am - 12:30 pm CDT


Off Site Mom’s event for Family-Focus .  Located in Aurora.  Contact:  Gabriela Gaylan.   Painting TBD

Paint Fee is $35 per person.   The cost includes all travel/setup/cleanup fees, painting supplies, 12×16 canvas, easel, apron, table covers, and is led by an experienced art instructor.  NOTE:  No coupons or discounts are accepted for off site parties

Set Up arrival 9:30am, Paint Session begins 10:00-10:15am, Event Concludes by 12:30pm, Clean up finished by 1:00pm

Logistics:  We will arrive 30 minutes early to set up.  Please ensure the room is a well lit area for the painting session and that all tables and chairs are set up in advance.  The table configuration should allow everyone to see the art instructor.  If host wants their floors covered, please do so prior to our arrival.  Each table will be covered with a plastic table cloth and each paint station will be set up with an easel, 12×16 canvas, paint brushes, paper towel, water cup and a paper plate of acrylic paint colors.   We will need access to a sink to fill water cups and wash brushes at the end of the party . 

We will take a few breaks during the paint sessions, waiting for the canvas to dry between sections.  We do bring blow dryers with us, to help speed up the drying process if necessary.  Acrylic paints dry fairly quickly, so breaks will last 10-15 minutes, allowing time to socialize, enjoy beverages/snacks/food.

Once the event ends, we will take some group photos of everyone with their finished paintings.  Then, we will empty dirty paint water into our own pitchers to dump down the sink, discard paper products (we bring our own trash bags to dispose these items at the studio),  take down the paint stations, and wipe down tables.  It will take us 20-30 minutes to clean up and we should be gone by 30-40 minutes after the paint session ends.

Paint:  We do use water soluble, non-toxic acrylic paint which washes off from most surfaces and hands.  However, may not be easily removed from fabric (clothes or carpeting).  Each guest will have a bib apron to wear to help protect their clothing.  While we take precautions, The Sipping Muse is not responsible for any paint stains on surfaces, flooring or clothing.

Deposit:  A non-refundable deposit of $70 is required and due as soon as possible to finalize your booking.  Invoice has been emailed.  The deposit will cover 2 paint fees the day of the event.  The deposit is non-refundable since we have reserved the time and personnel to cover your party.  If you need to reschedule your event, a 7-day notice must be provided and the deposit will be credited for a future event.  If 7 days noticed is not provided, the $70 deposit is forfeited.   Please contact us via email at thesippingmuse@gmail.com to cancel or reschedule your event.

Minimum Paint Fee Requirement:  There is a minimum requirement of 10 painters for the event.  If fewer than 10 people attend, you will be responsible to pay for a minimum of 10 people.

Balance of Paint Fees:  An invoice will be emailed after the event, based upon the final # of painters and will be due upon receipt.

Cancellations for pre-paid paint fees, if applicable, (not including deposit):  For cancellations more than 48 hrs prior to event, a complete refund can be issued upon request (processed within 5-7 business days) or a credit given toward a future event.  If cancellation is within 12-48 hrs of an event, a credit will be issued for a future event.  Cancellations within 12 hours of event, or “no shows”, will receive no credit or no refund.   Please contact us via email at thesippingmuse@gmail.com to cancel or reschedule your reservation.
