Some things to know


All ages are welcome but 5 yrs. old  and up is best. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Artwork Options
We have several artwork options to choose from in our Painting Gallery! As the private party host, you can select your favorite! Your instructor will be able to guide you no matter what you choose!  If you have a particular painting in mind and don't see it in our gallery let us know and we can create it for you!**

It just isn’t a party without tunes! You can pick the music of your choice from several different playlists!  Our Kids’ playlist offers child appropriate, clean-lyric versions of today’s most popular music!

Number of guests
Although we require a minimum of 12 people to book an event we will accommodate a smaller party. However, if fewer than the minimum required attend, the host will still need to pay for the minimum 12 people.

A 50% deposit is required to reserve party date and time. The deposit goes toward your final balance, which is due 3 business days prior to the event. There are no refunds within 2 weeks of the event.
( But you can reschedule! See below.)

Subject to availability, you can change the date and time of your party up to 24 hours before your original event date without penalty.

Available Dates
If your date/time is unavailable, we will do our best to find a suitable alternative. Once your deposit is paid, your date is confirmed.

Site Visits
Depending on the size of your party and/or the size of your location, we may recommend a site visit prior to your event. If a site visit is necessary we will schedule a Creative Mankind event planner to meet you at your event location to visually plan your event at no additional cost (within 20 miles of Springfield, Virginia).

If you are looking to “guild the lily” and add something extra to your masterpiece, frames are available upon request at an additional fee.

Feel free to ask
If there is something that you would like us to incorporate into your party that we haven’t addressed here feel free to email us and we will try to accommodate you!

Our Service Area
Our motto is, “If we can drive there we will go there”. However, there is a mileage fee of $1.00 per mile over 20 miles from Springfield, Virginia.

To get started, just fill out our party request form  and answer some basic questions about your event. Within 1-2 business days, a Creative Mankind event planner will contact you via email or phone to help plan your event.

What a fun favor to take home! Each child will enjoy painting on a professional canvas with non-toxic acrylic paints!

We work to customize your party to reflect your child’s interests. We can even match the art subject to the party’s theme!

For younger children, canvases images can be pre-drawn in advance or templates can be provided during the party upon request.  Please let your CM Event Planner know if your interested in this feature.

Our enthusiastic teachers help each child create a take-home project and we oversee the party from start to finish.
