How should I get my painting home?
Our paints are acrylic which dry quickly. Your painting should be relatively dry when it's time to take it home; however, be cautious not to let it rub against something. We can provide a plastic covering during inclement weather
Do you offer children's parties?
What a wonderful birthday idea. Or for any occasion - scouts group, dance class friends, ball teams, ... the possibilities are endless! These parties will be geared to the age group and gender, typically on a smaller, more manageable canvas.
What about team building events?
Since Art EmPOURium Painting Parties are fun and social, we believe they lend themselves quite well to Team Building. This would be very appropriate for organizations, companies, offices and so on. The featured painting may be individual paintings much like our regular Painting Parties or it can be a collaborative painting where each canvas is a piece of an overall larger painting.
Can the Events be scheduled at other locations?
Absolutely! Art EmPOURium Painting Parties are usually scheduled at our location at the Finger Lakes Art Cooperative located at 101 Genesee Street in Downtown Auburn, New York. However, we would love to come to your home, place of work or business to hold a party. Just contact us by e-mail at for more information.
