Live Event Painter Melissa Mae Kors New York City Artist
 

How it Works

PRE-EVENT

Prior to your event we talk about the details of your event and what you envision your painting to look like.  We will discuss colors you would like in the painting as well as which moments and people you would like painted in the painting. 

 

You will then book my services for your event date and pay a 25% non-refundable deposit.

DAY OF EVENT

On the day of the event I will arrive 2-3 hours early to set up and begin painting an outline of the background. I will bring everything I need to paint (easel, canvas, paint, brushes, drop-cloth, etc...) All I need is access to the venue and to know where I should set up my easel. The area should be at least  5 ' x 5' and have a view of the scene I'm painting and should be accessible for your guests to see the painting being created.

GUEST ARRIVAL

As guests arrive, I will interact with thand continue continue to paint throughout the event. Your guests will be delighted and entertained by watching the painting being created. As I paint, I will capture the atmosphere of the event: structures, lighting, décor, attire, and people.

 

I may take photos of quick special moments so that I can reference them while I create the painting.

TURNAROUND TIME

The whole process takes around 4-5 hours. Since I paint with odorless, acrylic paint that dries in minutes, you can take your painting with you at the end of the event. Once the painting is completed, I will clean up and pack up all my supplies leaving my area of the venue spotless.
