Each session will feature a seasonal painting or project so that at the conclusion of the conference you will have a WHOLE YEAR OF CURRICULUM to incorporate in your after school art enrichment program!

We have selected 10 of our favorite projects for this conference because they are fun, easy, use limited supplies and kids LOVE them!


Our Artsy coaches are not just coaches - we each operate our own paint party business. These are the projects we use at our youth party events, and you can too! You will leave the conference with 10 projects that you can use to creatively make money with your paint party business.



You will need a 9x12 mixed media pad to use as your journal to capture all the projects and fun stuff you will learn during the conference. And remember, your journal is for YOU and YOU only - there are no rules! You can reflect back on the journal for project ideas and inspiration, and you can continue to add to the journal as your business grows.

Your conference ticket includes access to the Artsy vault to reference all of the recorded project videos AND a workbook download including all of the images, templates and instructions for all 10 projects!




We have created three supply lists to help you get the most value out of your conference experience. You can be very creative with a very basic supply list. Chances are if you have done any painting at home, you have some of the supplies on hand! 

  • Looking to try and play with new supplies? Then you'll want to try the upgraded list. 

  • The workbook will break down the supplies needed for each session.

As a result of ongoing budget cuts, many schools have had to reduce or in some cases eliminate art class entirely from their curriculum, even though we know how vital art is to our children's education and overall health and happiness! ​


We introduced Create In The Classroom in 2014 to help bridge the gap giving schools the opportunity to offer art enrichment to their students PLUS a portion of proceeds are donated to the school to buy art supplies and promote art in their school!

 This workshop is designed for you if you:

  • Need a creative reset

  • Need confidence as an artist or creator, specifically when working with kids

  • Want to learn how to start a youth paint party business or how to grow your youth paint party business

  • Want to learn how to use new materials

  • Want to meet a creative community


Each project is about an hour or so. Gather your supplies, claim your creative space, lock the kids up (actually no, don't do that!), and block out time on your calendar to get Artsy! You need (deserve!) this!


And maybe you don't want to do all 10 projects - that's okay too. Sometimes it's fun just to watch people art!

Facebook Group!

Your purchase includes an invitation to our private Creating With Kids Facebook group! You can meet other creatives in the paint party industry and see their projects, and of course share your own! We can't wait to see what you make!​


When we launched our paint party business in 2011, our local rec center was one of the first venues we partnered with to offer Kids 'n Canvas paint party events. Since then, we have pained the first Wednesday of each month for ELEVEN YEARS! We have painted with 1000s of kids - most of whom become repeat customers that come every month!

If you love art and kids - YOU can be the art ambassador for your community. And we can show you how. Invite a friend over, gather your supplies, and get ready to party!
