Learning how to start a paint party business can be overwhelming. Painting in itself is a blast, but when you turn it into a business, there are so many things you need to do before you’re ready to launch. It’s easy to feel like the process of starting a paint party business is too complicated or time-consuming.

That’s why I’m here to help you simplify the process of launching your own online or in-person paint party company! My name is Heidi and I’m the founder of Texas Art and Soul.

I have been running paint parties for over a decade now, both in-person and online through my website. Today, I want to share 5 expert tips on how you can start your own paint party business.

How to Start a Paint Party Business

If you’re interested in starting a paint party business or just looking for some new ideas to try out with your group of friends at home, this blog post will be perfect for you!

1. Explore All of the Possibilities

There are so many different ways you can make money teaching art or doing crafts! Paint parties are a great way to get started because they’re fun, you don’t need any prior experience or training, and the potential for how much money you can make is almost limitless.

But the days of parties being limited to just in person is over, thanks to the internet! Zoom calls, Facebook lives, internet chats…there are a million ways to teach.

My advice? Don’t be afraid of trying out new ideas! You never know what will work until you try it out yourself.

2. Get Supplies at a Discount

Brushes, canvases, paint…and those are just the basics! If you’re planning on running paint parties at home, you’ll need to have all of the materials purchased and ready before your guests arrive.

You can easily save money by purchasing supplies in bulk at a local craft store. I like to shop at Michaels or Hobby Lobby when they have 40% off specials.

Here’s what you can expect to spend on art supplies as a beginner.

3. Make a Profit Every Party

When you’re first starting out, you’ll want to make sure that every party is profitable. Pricing your classes right from the get-go will be important for two reasons:

  1. You need money to run a business. Simple. Your time and your talent is worth it!
  2. It helps you grow confidence in your business!

I say it all the time: “a profit every party!”. No starving artist mentality here. 😉

4. Identity in God, Not Success

This one is very near and dear to my heart. I so often put my identity into things or my career. I think of myself as an artist or someone who teaches how to start a paint party business. While that IS what I do, that’s not who I am. I am a child of God!

I learned this one the tough way while going through bankruptcy. Trust me on this one. Your circumstances don’t define you!

5. Find a Community of Like-Minded People Who Get It

I love how God works. When I was going through my bankruptcy, it showed me just how much I needed my community of friends and their support.

Even if you haven’t had an experience like mine, finding other people in the industry where you can connect is so important!

As a matter of fact, that’s exactly why I started Paint Party Headquarters! This is my happy place – a spot where I can teach people just like you how to start a paint party business that thrives!
