Thank you for considering my artwork and/or Painting Encounters workshops for your event. I receive a high volume of requests every year for donations and/or fundraisers, and as such I have implemented the following policy for all requests to be treated fairly and I can work with everyone who has requested my assistance.
My Painting Encounters workshops are very popular and I've been teaching these for 20 years! Participants enjoy a relaxing and fun evening learning to paint. They complete a painting project by following along with me as I show each element step-by-step. Participants do not need any prior painting experience. Your organization will provide the venue with chairs and tables, and I will provide all painting supplies and instruction. Cost to each participant is $45 and your organization will receive a portion of ticket sales. Generally your organization will receive at least $25 per person registered, depending on class size and supplies required. Your organization is responsible for finding and/or renting a suitable facility for the fundraiser.
I currently offer a 50/50 deal for those who are interested in original artwork and/or designer canvas reproductions for donations or fundraising. This means that I will provide you with the requested piece of artwork or canvas and you can proceed to raise your funds. You will then get 50% of what was raised and I will get 50%, with my half being minimum of 50% of full retail price and capped at full retail value. For example, if the piece being donated has a full retail price of $500, and you raise $1,200, you would get $700 and I would receive $500 (capped at full retail value).
Please note, that I will not provide any monetary donations and will only donate to the charity in question directly (therefore, no third-party donations). All donation and/or fundraiser requests MUST be submitted at least 5 WEEKS prior to your event deadline.
Please contact me directly to discuss your options. I will need to know the following information:
- Date of the event
- Location of the event
- Approximate number of people (if requesting a Painting Encounters class)
- Type of event (i.e. live auction, silent auction, tickets, Painting Encounters class, etc.)
