Invite a party of children, adults or families to take a beginning acrylic painting class together from Chris Babcock. Through step by step instruction and constant visual demonstration, Chris Babcock and a her assistant teacher show party guests how to paint their chosen image. Each party guest will complete a 15 by 20-inch acrylic painting using only finest professional-quality acrylic paints on museum quality white cotton paper. You are welcome to bring any food you like, birthday cake, beverages, libations, and decorations or have your party catered. Minimum number required to hold a party is 10 people or equivalent payment for 10 people.

TWO IMAGES PARTY: You or your child choose two different images to paint at the party. Chris will email you 28 images to choose from that can be painted in one, three or four hour setting or you can send Chris images that you choose. The paintings are still wet at the end of the party, so they need to stay with us to dry. We make minor touch ups on them and then gloss them with a clear varnish or not depending on if each guest wants a glossy painting or a matte finish painting. We can deliver the paintings to your house within two days or when it is convenient for you to receive them, or you can ask the parents to come by anytime Monday through Thursday between 3:30 and 6:30 to pick up their child’s painting.

 SELF-PORTRAIT PARTY: If you choose the self-portrait party, you need to send me an image of each person two weeks prior to the date of the painting party.  They need to be head and shoulder images only in high definition format.

Date and time: Request any day or night of the week between the hours of 9 am and 10 pm for a 3 to 6 hour art class with friends. Adults attention spans are longer and they take longer to complete their paintings so that’s why we offer different lengths of time to choose form for your party. Best to reserve two weeks to a month in advance of the date. The most popular time to hold a party for kids is 1 to 5 pm on a Saturday or Sunday. The most popular time to hold an adult party is any night of the week, 6 to 11 pm.
