How to Host Painting Parties!

how to start a painting party business

Recently, I got to chat with Julie, the host of the Anyone Can Teach Art podcast!

We talked all about my new offering, the How to Start Your Own Painting Party Business package, which teaches creatives at any level how to host in-home painting parties!

I had so much fun sharing stories and tips about the adventures of hosting painting parties, I hope you’ll enjoy it too! Have a listen and a laugh, and let me know what you think!

How to host painting parties

From the sweet Julie:

Emily is focused on helping full-time artists supplement their income with painting parties, but everything she says can apply to anyone interested in hosting painting parties. You really don’t need to be a full-time artist to host these parties!

Plus, this package, at $35, is so cheap that you can easily earn that investment back in your first party. So why not try it? I know I plan to!!

No, I’m not an affiliate for Emily. I don’t earn anything from her sales and she didn’t pay me to do this interview. I just think this is a really great idea for anyone looking to earn some extra income this summer! Here at Ridge Light Ranch, we love helping parents teach their children art. However, I love this idea of helping parents learn art too! 

So check out Emily’s package here: “Start Your Own In-Home Painting Party Business.”

Nebula Painting Tutorial

Supplies Used:
20″ x 16″ Canvas
Matisse Derivan FLOW in Australian Salmon Gum and Magenta
Golden Fluid Acrylic in Iridescent Bronze (Fine)
Reeves Acrylic in Titanium White
Various brushes (shown in video)
Dry Mop Brush
Bristle Tool
Fine Mist Spray Bottle

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m SO happy to have you here!

I’ve never taught via video before, so I’m really counting on you to tell me what you want and need from me!

It’s important to me to give you the space to follow along and paint with me, so everything is in real time.

Rather than taking you through a whole giant painting (the video would be hours, nobody got time for that!), I’m showing you the technique that I’ve developed through experimentation over the past 20-some years in a series of nugget-sized videos.

I use this technique in clouds, waves, nebulae, abstract, all over the place. I’d love to see you apply it to your art and decor projects and see what you come up with!

All supplies I use are listed, but don’t feel like you need the exact things I use to do it! ANY soft bodied or flow paint will work for this!

Future videos will be shaped by your feedback, so please give me ALL your thoughts and questions! Have ALL THE FUN!

Love & gratitude,

Emily 🙂
