Children’s Painting Party Rules

Once supervising adult must be present at all times during a children’s party.  However, we recommend that one adult is present for every five children. Supervisors may paint with the party for the same cost per child. If the supervisors paint, they may be counted in the total number of painters.

Example 1: 8 children painting + 2 adult supervisors painting = a party of 10

Example 2: 9 children painting + 1 adult supervisor painting and 1 adult supervisor not painting = a party of 10 (although 11 people are present)

We have a wide variety of children’s paintings for you to choose from.
