How much does it cost to have an artist come to my event?
- We charge a flat rate for the artist's services which will include all the drawings (or face paints, photos, etc.) that the artist can complete in the scheduled time. There is no additional charge for your guests to take their artwork home. Just Request a Quote and tell us what services you are interested in and we can tailor a quote for your event.
How far in advance should I request an artist?
- It is never too soon! We offer an early booking discount if you book your event at least 2 weeks before the event date. But don't despair if you have a last minute need. With our nationwide pool of artists, we will do our best to get you the service you want to make your event memorable.
- Every service has a slightly different average hourly output. For example, a caricature artist can draw about 20 faces per hour in black and white. When you Request a Quote, just tell us how many people you are expecting at your event and we will let you know how many artists we recommend.
How do I reserve an artist?
- A 50% deposit will reserve your requested date. You can pay the deposit with a credit card through our website. If you prefer to pay by check, our mailing address is:
