Plan the PartyPurchase tabletop easels for the party at a crafts store.
This party is as simple as gathering a few art supplies and some snacks. Click here for the full party kit. Here's what else you'll need:
- A still life set up in the center of a round table, or a couple of arrangements down a long table. Use fruits or flowers for a traditional look, but almost anything will work as a subject -- bottles, eggs, glasses, shells, and more. Keep in mind that simple shapes are easiest for beginners.
- A set of inexpensive watercolors, brushes, and three to five sheets of watercolor paper for each guest.
Party MenuMix up pitchers of party cocktails so guests can serve themselves.
Your artists need nourishment. Our free party kit offers a full menu of bite-size appetizer recipes, like mini grilled cheese sandwiches and picadillo poppers.
Art Party Tip: Purchase a couple of extra paint palettes to use as serving trays for your party appetizers.
Party TipsSplatter paint on a drop cloth for an easy party backdrop.
Use these final tips to host and plan your party without a hitch.
- Instruct guests to wear clothes that can get dirty, and/or provide aprons they can take home.
- Clear off a table or countertop as a drying station for finished work.
- Offer a few drawing supplies, such as ink pens and colored pencils, so guests can try something new.
