We're the Artsy coaches and co-founders! We launched our mobile paint party business in 2011 and in 2018 we founded Artsy Association as a support system for independent paint party business owners. Our members come together to connect with other like-minded creative entrepreneurs, and have access to the tools, resources and discounts to support their creative business. It's like a Costco card for creatives!

Not an artist? Not a problem!
So you're not an artist? Great....you're in good company! We hear this a lot, but good news - you DO NOT need to be an artist to do this biz!

Sound too good to be true? Trust us, you can do this!

"I am an at-home educator and I love that because of my GOTG business we have the fun money that allows us to add on fun homeschooling activities like the museum & zoo passes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a MLM or direct sales business?Not at all! Artsy is a membership association. Our members pay an annual membership which gives them all sorts of perks including discount codes to shop with our preferred vendors, artwork and project instructions, business support and more! There are no party or sales minimums, no recruiting or downline commission. You manage your own business and keep 100% of your party earnings - all while having the support and backing of a large national brand!
Do I have to be an artist?While it helps to be generally crafty, you do NOT have to be an artist to do this business! If you can read and follow instructions, you can do this biz! We do have a number of artists on our team (and thank goodness for that as they design all of our awesome artwork and projects!), but the majority of our members are, in fact, not artists. Just artsy people like you! This business is all about providing exceptional customer service and having an upbeat and fun personality. If you like people and like to party…you’ll be great at this!
What if I am an artist?GREAT! You can create your own artwork for your customers and can potentially earn commission on your artwork by selling it to other members!
How much can I earn?That is totally up to you. On average our members earn $200-$300 per event for in-home events and $400+ at larger events. You are your own boss and set your own schedule. There are no monthly party or sales minimums. We have members who do 1 or 2 parties a month for a little “fun money” up to members who work their business full time doing 10-15 parties a month. Whatever income level you are looking for, we can provide a plan to help you reach your goal!
What makes Artsy different than other in-home party services?The biggest difference is that we do not sell a product; our product is our service. People value experiences over stuff. They are looking for opportunitites to be creative and we can provide that for them! Our customer base is so extensive that our party options are limitless! We party all week long, in classrooms, rec centers, coffee shops, restaurants, conference rooms and of course in homes! We have painted with guests from age 3 to 93!
What will I paint?We feature over 500 paintings in our Gallery and all artwork including marketing images and step-by-step instructions are included in your membership. We introduce new artwork each quarter, including fun seasonal and holiday paintings. It’s like getting a new product line to share with your customers at no cost to you!
Is there any product to buy?Here’s the best part – NO! In many in-home party businesses that sell a product you are encouraged to “shop in your own store”, which makes sense because of course you want to use the product that you love so much. But what can happen is you become your best customer. Our product is our service. You will have basic business expenses, like paint and canvas, but no product for you or your family to consume. No product to buy means more money in your pocket!
Are there any party minimums?Nope! Not at all! You are your own boss. You pay a low annual membership fee to be a member of the association, and you choose to party whenever you wish!
Can I use my own business name and logoOf course! Our marketing material is branded with our name and logo, but you can simply remove it and use your own!
What if I don't launch in 30 days?No worries! This is your business and you work it on your time. As your coaches we will tell you it's best to not wait too long. When you're ready to launch we're here for you every step of the way!
Do I have to buy your kit or supplies?Not at all! We are not a supply company and have no supplies to sell. We will give you a shopping list of recommended supplies for your kit with links to shop using our wholesale pricing with our online vendors that save you up to 70% off retail prices!
Can I cancel at any time?Absolutely! We'll be sad to see you go, but you can cancel your membership at any time!
Me, an entrepreneur?!"Yes, we know it’s scary, but you’re not alone – we’ll help you set up your business and show you everything you need to know. We’ve got you covered when it comes to marketing and other business how to’s!
What is the state of the art entertainment industry?Creative product sales in 2016 topped $43 Billion. Humans have been crafting since the beginning of time when the cavemen scrawled on cave wells. Art is timeless and it isn’t going anywhere any time soon! It can costs tens of thousands of dollars to open a storefront or franchise, but by using a membership approach we are able to offer you the opportunity to own your own mobile art entertainment business at a fraction of the cost plus the training and support to rock your business from day one!
