For your first paint and sip to be truly successful, you need to plan couple months a head. Better to over estimate with everything, than under estimate your event.
I normally shop locally, but out in rural country, you naturally have to drive at least 30 minutes to get to most places. This go around, I turned to Amazon, because there are no locally own art supply stores. Below are a list of products I decided on:
Easels: US Art Supply 18″ Large Tabletop Display A-Frame Artist Easel (12-Pack). Main website: http://www.usartsupply.com/
I found this company has the best price for bulk easels on their amazon account. They arrived in a timely fashion, no assembly required. I purchased the larger easels so that I could use a variety of canvas sizes (between 8″x 10″ / 20×25 cm up to “18 / 45 cm )
Great company for paint and sip projects. The price was great for the amount of paints you received. Didn’t dry out during the class. My biggest fear was the product being to watery. Didn’t happen. They are non toxic and no running down the canvas. Very pleased with the product and price. A little bit of paint went a long way.
I was very pleased with the deliver from this company. As an artist the last thing you need is for your canvases to show up damaged. It just causes more delays. 99% of the time, I load up and purchase my canvases from a chain supple store about two hours away. They arrived undamaged and as advertised. Found them to have the best price for this project.
Good buy for the money. All arrived on time and undamaged. Liked the lid idea because, if I have another event that day. Just cover, pack and reuse. On another note: I’ve read that some use paper plates, a good, frugal idea, as well. There are many way to present your event.
Paint Brushes: Variety Size Packs
As you know paint brushes come in varies sizes, so I went with several different types of bulk variety packs. Giving each painter six sizes to chose from. My best deals were found at my local dollar store or chain store.
Preparing the canvases
Because this was a family event and we anticipated all ages, “Paint and Sip with Parent”. I penciled up the subject matter. Then went over my pencil with black and light blue sharpies. I prepared twelve canvases and one on the fly, when an extra guest showed up. Keep your design simple.
Venues: Where to have your paint and sip
I was lucky that the venue was provided for me. Doing this completely on your own requires renting or holding it in your home. Around here it would have cost me $150.00 for a couple of hours. Which would have been a financial loss. Check with your local church, fire hall, community clubs or art organizations about renting their space. (The good thing about local venues is they may already have tables and chairs)
Advertising, Advertising, Advertising:
Design a flyer and post it everywhere! Social Media is a great place to start, Twitter, Facebook, Your website etc. Reach out to local bulletin boards in your churches, veteran halls, senior centers, grocery stores, gyms, libraries etc.
Set up and Break down:
At last, but not least. I wanted to thank my Patrons. Without your, encouragement and financial support this would’ve not been possible.
