Paint Night

Hosting a paint night is a great way to get into event planning!  A paint night is an easy event to get started because the main focus is simply promoting the event and selling tickets.

Steps for Hosting a Paint Night:

  1. Choose an Artist you would like to lead the guided paint session.
  2. Decide which painting you would like to paint at your event.
  3. Choose a venue and date – paint parties are becoming more and more popular so it should be easy to do a quick google search and find venues willing to host!
  4. Once the details are nailed down, create a poster to promote the event.  Check out some poster templates you can use in the resource section below.
  5. Promote the event on social media (check out some social media tips and tricks in the resource section below)
  6. Sell, sell, sell!  Once your event details are confirmed, all your focus should be on selling tickets to your event.

TIP: Search for local artists and businesses in your area that host paint nights!  They often have options to set up a paint night fundraiser and will help you through the process.  Some examples of companies you can get in touch with include: Paint Nite, East Coast Art Party, and more!

Silent Auctions

For additional revenue generation, try adding a silent auction.  It’s always a good idea to look at multiple revenue streams when hosting an event and a silent auction is a great option because it does not require a license and you can ask local businesses for donations.  You can also do an online auction if your event is virtual (more details coming soon!).

Raffles

If you’d prefer to do a raffle at your event, check out this document outlining some details!  If you are planning to hold a raffle, a raffle license will be required.  HSC is typically responsible for applying for this license once you provide us with the details.  Click here to submit a form with all your raffle details and HSC will apply for the raffle license.  Keep in mind, it can take up to two months for the license to come in so you will need to plan ahead.
