10 Tips on Hiring a Live Event Painter
“You and I and everybody in show business and the entertainment industry fly by the seat of our pants. We don’t know quite what is going to happen.”
– William Shatner
I agree with Mister Shatner, and I especially agree with this statement because I’m a LIVE event painter. Since I literally walk into a room without any idea of what I’m going to paint! AND I LOVE IT! It’s part of the excitement, and on-the-spot inspiration. Nothing is ever the same, so I’m kept on my toes, and THAT keeps me in the moment. It’s a beautiful thing.
Live painting is a loose cannon if you will. So, there are no real “standards” here because this is such rare form of entertainment. BUT there are some solid guidelines I’ve learned in doing this art form. So, here’s a handy list of good rules-of-thumb if you are interested in contracting an artist/painter/entertainer for your special event!
Adding something unique, and special like a live event painter is not only awesome, interesting entertainment, but you also get a one-of-a-kind artistic memento to display forever. Now, you can’t say that about that 80’s rock band your were thinking about hiring for that yearly corporate event. Sorry Foreigner!
