Kids Chalk Paint® Workshop
January 19, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$95
For artistically minded kids who have the ability to focus on a project for several hours at a time! We recommend this workshop for kids age nine and over.
Chalk Paint® is ideal for adults and kids alike as it contains zero harmful VOC’s and has been deemed “toy safe” by strict European standards!
This workshop adapts our popular Basic Chalk Paint® class for a younger audience. During the workshop, we will have kids paint their own piece of furniture with a single color application, distressed finish and wax top coat! By the time it is all said and done, kids will go home with their very own finished piece-and we guarantee* it will be something that Mom will love, too.
*(Even if Mom doesn’t love it, there are no refunds as a result of colors chosen or finishes applied)
Here are the rules:
- Bring a piece that you will be using for indoor use. Outdoor furniture is sealed with a different process which we touch on but don’t complete during a workshop.
- The size of your piece needs to be within 21 x 21 inches! That means, the largest flat surface can not exceed 21 inches. Really! We want you to take home a finished product without bumping elbows with the person next to you. Small chairs and side tables are ideal pieces to paint during a workshop. Please don’t be “THAT” person! If you are “THAT” person, we will be more than happy to offer you a piece of ours to paint so that you can learn the process, but we get the pleasure of selling it back to you if you are pleased with your own work (for the price of the unfinished product, of course). If you have a large piece, we are more than happy to sell you two workshop spots (in advance), but you still probably won’t have time to complete a project from start to finish in the allotted time frame.
- No advanced techniques will be taught in our basic class. So if you have plans of layering colors or applying washes, you’ll want to hold out for one of our Advanced Decorative Finishes Workshops.
- The workshop fee is for one person (unless you signed up for a couples class). If the hubby (or your bestie, or mom, or sister, or running partner. etc.) wants to come “observe” from the sidelines, they’ll have to pay for they’re own spot. We’re more than happy to send silent observers to the pet store to play with the puppies, Frisella’s for a BBQ sandwich or Classic Coffee for a latte. It’s super awkward when we have to ask people to leave so PLEASE don’t make us do it.
Paint and supplies provided.
There will be a short 30-40 minute break mid-class at which time we will provide light snacks for the kids to eat. Please e-mail us to indicate an dietary restrictions or allergies!Click here to sign-up
