ART PARTIES FOR ADULTS - Unleash Your Inner Picasso with Friends!

Book a private BYOB 2-hour painting party for 10-40 friends, family or colleagues. Host your event at Art Matters Studio or at a location you choose. Call 717-208-6901 to schedule.

Want a creative way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or upcoming wedding? Want a fun activity to share with friends, family, social club members, or co-workers? Treat everyone to an event filled with fun, food, festivities -- and painting -- by scheduling a private Art Party! There’s no need for favors because your guests will leave with a painting or a mixed media project they create. As host, you select one project from our gallery for you and your guests to create. Adult parties are BYOB so participants aged 21 or older are free to bring wine and snacks to enjoy while you work.

The party host is responsible for paying a $350 flat fee to book a private event. The fee covers up to 10 guests. The final cost of the party is based on the actual number of participants. On the day of the event, you will be asked to pay $35 for each participant beyond 10. Hosts are responsible for gathering payments from guests if sharing event costs. For parties with less than 10 guests, you are still responsible for the minimum fee of $350. Hosts cancelling less than 14 days prior to the event receive a refund of $250; no refund is issued if the event is cancelled 7 days or less from date of event. Paying the flat rate locks in your date.
