Private Event Terms and Conditions

1. What do we paint?

Upon securing your booking, we’ll email you a link to our Gallery of original artwork for you to choose from or we can create a unique painting specifically for you.  The cost for us to create this unique painting varies depending on your needs.  Contact us to discuss.

2. When can we hold our event?

We’re open 7 days a week. We have allocated time-slots throughout each day for all private events.

Painting start times are:

     Morning Events:         between 9.45am and 10.45am
     Afternoon Events:      between 1.45pm and 3.15pm
     Evening Events:          between 6pm and 7.15pm

You can choose your time-slots for offsite events, subject to availability.

3. Bump-in Time and Bump-out Time (Arrival and End Time)

Unless otherwise agreed, your bump-in time (arrival time) is 15 minutes before your painting start time. Your bump-out time (or end time for your event) is 15 minutes after your painting time ends. The agreement entered into with US will clearly state your bump-in time, your bump-out time and the duration of your painting time.

For example, for a 2-hour private event, you may have agreed to a bump-in time of 1.30pm. This means that your painting start time is 1.45pm and your painting end time is 3.45pm. Your bump-out time is 4pm.

4. Maximum People

We can accommodate up to 51 people at our Darlinghurst (NSW) studio, up to 38 people at our Crows Nest (NSW) and South Melbourne (VIC) studios and up to 60 people at our Bondi Junction VIP studio at Event Cinema, Westfield Bondi Junction (NSW).  We can accommodate 50+ people at our partnering venues throughout Melbourne and Sydney. Our largest event so far has been for 120 people.
