Painting Parties by Karen Wolfe
Jackson County,
Kenna, West Virginia

Are you ready to release your inner artist?
How about a Painting Party?

If you have been looking for Painting Parties to attend near the Ripley, Ravenswood, Parkersburg and Charleston
areas in West Virginia,
your search is over.
 
This isn't one of those ordinary art classes, it's a "PAINTING PARTY" and it's A LOT OF FUN!  You will have a great time while learning some of the basics of painting in acrylic.

 All you need to bring to class is yourself.  I provide the paint, canvas, brushes, aprons and easels.  THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED TO DO THIS!!!

You don't even have to be able to draw a stick person.  I will display a sample painting and all you have to do is follow along with me as I show you step-by-step how to paint the sample art. I will assist you as needed throughout the process, so don't worry if you have never painted before. 

I promise you will be amazed at your results.
Please join us, relax and have a great time!

NOW OFFERING
THE VERY POPULAR
PAINT YOUR OWN PET CLASSES!!  

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE
A PORTRAIT OF YOUR PET THAT YOU PAINTED?

This is your chance to do just that!!!!  Don’t worry, I will guide you every step of the way.  I will help you in the selection of your palette, choosing a background color, answer questions, and offer suggestions if needed.  You will have a great time and at the end of the class you will have a fantastic painting of your pet to cherish forever.

SEE THE SCHEDULE ABOVE FOR DATES
Hurry up and register!!!  Seats are limited.

Choosing a Photo of your Pet

Starting with a good photo of your pet is VERY important!!!  The reference photo will make all the difference in the world.  I will need a high resolution, high quality head shot with good lighting.  You will be painting ONLY the head and shoulders of your pet.  If you have a photo that you like that is of the full body, I can crop it for you.  I will use this photo to pre-sketch your pet onto the canvas and print this photo for you to use as reference to paint your pet.  You may send several images and I will choose the best one.  I will also decide how to position the drawing of your pet on the canvas.

Photos: Take the photograph of your pet at eye level.  Please try and have good lighting — not too dark and not too bright. Make sure the photo is clear and not fuzzy or pixelated.  You will be painting ONLY the head and shoulders of your pet, so keep that in mind when sending photos. We will be painting the photo exactly and cannot make adjustments, so please make sure the photo is exactly what you want to paint. Professional photos may only be used if you have written permission from the photographer. Email your photo at least 2 weeks before the class date to [email protected].  I will confirm receipt of your photo. If you don’t hear from me, that means I didn’t receive your photo!

Q.  What time should I arrive?
A.  Please try to arrive 15 minutes early to take care of food and drinks beforehand so we are able to start on time.
 
Q.  Do I have to buy a seat in advance or can I just show up?
A.  Please email or call in advance of the party to be added to the list to participate.  Payment must be received prior to the class by mailing a check or paying through online with a credit card in order to participate.  If the class is full, you will be added to a waiting list and notified if a space opens up.
 
If there are enough people on the waiting list, there is a possibility that we could paint that painting on another date as well.  So just because a class is full doesn't mean you shouldn't sign up.  
  
Q.  Will we be notified if a class is cancelled?
A.  Yes, I require a minimum of 10 painters per class.  If the class minimum is not met, those registered will be notified 24 hours in advance.  Bad weather cancellations will be sent at least 5 hours prior to class.
 
Please be courteous to others and notify me as soon as possible if you are unable to attend so that someone on the waiting list can paint in your place.

A.  Must be at least 10 years old to attend.  
 
Q.  Can I schedule a private party?
A.  Yes.  The minimum number of painters is 10 and the maximum is 20.  The cost is $40 per painter.  I require $200 deposit to be paid THREE WEEKS in advance of the party and the remaining balance is due the day of the party.  You will be required to pay for 10 painters even if there are no shows.  I provide everything that is needed to paint your masterpiece and all you have to do is provide the painters.  If you are interested in scheduling a private party, please contact Karen Wolfe via e-mail at [email protected] or cell phone 304-532-1418.
 
If the building is available we can have the private parties at the Liberty Lions Club, but I can also bring the painting party to you.

Q.  What should I wear?
A.  I strongly suggest that you wear comfortable, paint friendly clothes!  I provide aprons, but you WILL get paint on your hands and there is always a chance you could get it on your clothes.  Remember this is a painting party and you are an artist for the day!  I don't want you to be stressed about getting paint on your clothes.  Just relax and be creative!!
