It’s that time that we start seeing a lot of Christmas paintings as well as customers coming in to paint paintings as gifts. To get into the holiday spirit we’ve compiled a new Christmas painting idea book in the studio with over 50 new Christmas painting ideas for you to choose from.
Christmas paintings make great gifts for loved ones (especially Christmas paintings done by children for their grandparents or other relatives). We recently had a boy in with his grandmother to paint Olaf and an Alabama football (we won’t tell you who so we don’t give away the Christmas surprise!).
Whether it’s for a gift or to decorate your own house for the holidays, painting is a great way to relax during the stressful holiday season. We just had a group of teachers come in to paint with us (many painting Christmas paintings), but mostly they just needed a chance to relax with colleagues. If you’re looking for a fun Christmas party idea with your workmates or a girls night out to de-stress in this rush-rush-rush season, call us to schedule your paint party. You bring the wine and food, we provide the art therapy.
If you’ve already mastered the 11×14″ and 16×20″ canvas and are looking for something bigger, we do have 18×24″ canvases available with advance reservations. Call and reserve yours. The cost for one of painting one of our gallery images is just $50 for the 18×24″ canvas. When you choose your image, we can give you an estimate of how many hours to plan for (sometimes 18×24″ canvases take two or more visits). If you have a custom image, please email it to us and we can give you an estimate of how much time it will likely take and what the cost will be (cost varies with custom images sketched on the oversize canvas).
This abstract cross is an example of an 18×24″ painting that was painted in our studio by a customer. She took about 4.5 hours to complete that one so she finished it in one long session. Others that have more detail generally take two or more visits to the studio to complete. We’re happy to discuss options with you for the larger canvases.Looking for a Christmas wood door hanger? We have a limited stock of Christmas wood door hangers including a snowman, a reindeer, a stocking, candy canes, an ornament and the letters J-O-Y. If you want to do a wood door hanger, we recommend you call to reserve those as we just have a few on hand so if you want to hold one, you will need to prepay for that. They’re $35 each so hurry before they’re all gone.
We’ve gotten a few calls about pet portraits this time of year to give as Christmas gifts. The pet portraits in our gallery are the same prices as our other paintings ($30 for 16×20″ or $25 for 11×14″) so take a look and see if our gallery pets look like your pet and if so, come on in and paint one with us. If you want a custom pet portrait based on your own photograph, one of our artists would be happy to paint it for you to give as a gift, please contact us. Pet portraits start at $75.
Not sure what they want but know they like to paint? Give them a gift certificate. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you with Christmas gift certificates for any amount and as many as you need.
So whether it’s to de-stress during the frantic Christmas season or to make art as gifts or a little of both, give us a call at 251-343-2423 to let Paint Party Studios help you make this a Merry Christmas for you and your family. We have extended hours including our Two-for-Tuesdays through December and we’re available 7 days a week by appointment.
