There is a wide variety of painting supplies available and you can choose what brand fits your budget the most.

2. How Much Should I Charge for a Paint Party?
Another one of the paint party FAQs that you might have is how much to charge for a painting party.
This will be mainly up to you and how much you think the party is worth, but prices often vary between $25 and $50.
This often depends on what kind of project the painting party is focusing on. Whether it be painting canvases, door hangers, porch learners, or art kits.
Whatever you do – do NOT undercharge or undervalue yourself! You are worth the cost and your art will bring joy to your students.

Pinterest is a great way to see what designs are trending as well as youtube or Google. These places will all feature popular painting designs.
