Frequently asked questions

What is included in the cost of the ticket?


The price per seat includes everything you’ll need to create your masterpiece. You’ll have all the necessary equipment provided, including:

  • A 40 x 50cm blank canvas
  • Acrylic paints
  • Brushes
  • Table easel
  • Water glass
  • Pencil
  • Apron
  • Table cloths
All sessions include step by step guidance to assist you in releasing your inner Picasso. The only thing you’ll need to bring is your drinks, some nibbles and your imagination. Please note: the price is for the canvas and for my guidance only, the other equipment provided is for use during the session. I do not supply tables and chairs - if you are hosting a party at home, please make sure you have enough spade to accommodate your guests.




Are children allowed to take part in the workshop?


Yes! But there must be a supervising adult at all times.




Can we bring our own nibbles and food?


Of course! I strongly encourage everyone to have a little food while they paint to keep those creative juices flowing! If you don't want the hassel of bringing your food - let me bring some nibbles (cheese, crackers, dip, carrots & something sweet - see below) for an additional $5 per person.




Can I bring alcohol?


Some premises do not allow alcohol.... but if the premises does then YES you can! If you wish to bring alcohol, please let me know and I can confirm if it is allowed. Please remember to bring your own glass too!




What if I need to cancel?


I understand that sometimes life gets in the way, which is why I'm happy to cancel your booking for free of charge up to 48-hours before your scheduled session time. If cancelling within that 48-hour window, a $10 per ticket fee will be applied.




How do I book?


Email shelley@creativeshell.com.au or fill in my booking enquiry form and I will send you a confirmation email. You will need to pay a $10 deposit (per person) to confirm your booking.




Is your event COVID-Safe?


creative shell is a registered COVID-Safe business. If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend. You will need to check in before entering the premises by scanning a QR code. 1.5m physical distancing will be in place. Hand sanitiser will be available.




How long does the workshop go for?


My workshops are designed to be completed within 2 hours, sometimes it can take a little longer depending on the individual artist. It is important to arrive on time, if you're late we can't wait. Pop up venues are only booked for a certain amount of time, and it is important we leave the premises on time. If the venue is your house - then the time limits are set by you!




What If I don't finish?


My workshop paintings are designed to be completed within 2 hours. If you don't manage to finish in time, no need to stress - I can give you some paint to take home so you can finish it off.




What if I don't know how to paint?


These classes are for you! My paintings are designed for complete beginners, I walk you through step by step on how to create your very own masterpiece. If you would like a little head start on your painting, I can pre-draw the outline for you so you don't have to stress about getting the correct proportions. I use a projector to project my artwork onto the canvas - that way it will be exactly the same as the original.




What kind of paint do you use?


We use non-toxic, water based acrylic paint.




What should I wear?


I provide aprons to protect your clothing, but aprons don't protect your arms. I recommend wearing something that the sleeves can be rolled up on. We use acrylic paint, which is water based and non-toxic but it can stain clothing.




Can you pre-draw an outline for me?


Of course! If you would like a little head start on your painting, I can pre-draw the outline for you so you don't have to stress about getting the correct proportions. I use a projector to project my artwork onto the canvas - that way it will be exactly the same as the original.




How much does it cost?


If you host a party at your house, the cost is $50 per person. If it is a pop up class, then the cost is $60 per person - the additional charge is to cover the cost of the venue hire.




Do you offer catering?


For an additional $5.00 per person I can bring a palette of nibbles for each person. This will include: Cheese, crackers, dip, grapes (if in season), carrots and something sweet.




How far do you travel for paint parties?


I am based in Forster, however I do travel anywhere between Sydney & Port Macquarie. To book a Sydney or Newcastle class there is a $50 travel fee and you will need a minimum of 10 people, or a $500 minimum class charge if you have less than 10 people.
