There is an 8 person minimum for participation within 40 miles of Wausau WI. The minimum number needed to host an event increases with distance from Wausau WI. (+2 participants for every +10 miles beyond the 40 mile radius of Wausau WI. EXAMPLE: A party in Appleton is approximately 90 miles from Wausau. The minimum required would be 18 participants.)

"What is your Cancellation Policy?" Cancellation Policy for Public Events: You must contact us via phone or email no less than 48 hours in advance. NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS will be given for no-shows or class cancellations less than 48 hours before the class starts. No exceptions. We are an event based business - our cancellation policy is similar to that of a concert or performance center- they would not refund your ticket if you couldn't attend. We will, with a minimum of 48 hours notice. Cancellation Policy for Private Parties: When booking your party, we need a credit card number on file to hold your reservation. You are not charged to book a party. However, if you cancel your party less than a week in advance (via email or phone call,) your card will then be charged for 3 participants and this charge will remain as a credit on your account for 1 year. We turn other parties down once we book yours. If you cancel well over a week in advance, you are not charged and we hope to reschedule when convenient for you! Please call (715) 942-7374 or email email@example.com for assistance.

"How do I choose the activity I want for my party?"

"If I host a Private Event, and less guests arrive, what happens?"
Regardless of attendance you are still required to pay for the 'minimum' number of participants depending on where you live in Wisconsin. (+2 participants for every +10 miles beyond the 40 mile radius of Wausau WI. EXAMPLE: A party in Appleton is approximately 90 miles from Wausau. The minimum required would be 18 participants.)Having your guests pre-pay you, is a great way to avoid last minute cancellations and back-outs.

"Is it messy?"
That really depends on how wild U are- We keep the 'mess factor' to a minimum and have never had a bad paint incident, (*knocks on wood!) however we cannot control U or your guests! We provide aprons, and plastic table covers just in case. Acrylic paint easily comes off of most hard surfaces so we always recommend a non-carpeted room. Good news, acrylic paint washes off hands easily and will come out of most fabrics if it is still wet and washed immediately. Once it dries on your clothes or couch, it will be permanent. Basically, DO NOT WEAR SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT TO RISK GETTING PAINT ON. Maybe you will like your shirt better with a splash of orange? Sign that shirt and call it art! Bottom line, you paint at your own risk and U Paint & Party will not be held liable for any damages associated with hosting a paint party...okay, serious stuff over... now let's have some fun!
