I know how intimidating and scary that can be but don’t let fear stop you! I’m going to show you how to teach a paint party. It’s super simple and a ton of fun, you have a guinea pig party.

What is a guinea pig paint party?

I promise no real guinea pigs are used for this or harmed in any way. A guinea pig paint party is a practice paint party. All you need to do is select a painting to teach, pick a date and gather up some friends and family. You will want set everything up like you would for a normal paint party and then teach them like you would if you were at a venue.

How to teach a paint party!

Start with your introduction. So, introduce yourself and explain how the night will go. Remember, paint parties are FUN! Let your painters be creative and use different paint colors and remind them there is no judgement until the very, very end. This lets them know that everything will come together at the end of evening. Then start the party!

You will give an instruction and then let them paint. Remember, keep an eye on your painters to see their progress. This way you know when to move to the next step and keep the party moving along. You will have some stragglers but you want to keep the pace. You don’t want to end up with a four hour paint party!

It is a great opportunity to practice and get past your fears before hosting your first paint party. And remember, teaching a room full strangers or a room full of kindergartners is easier than teaching your family!
