Capture the energy of your event, whether it be a birthday, anniversary, fundraiser, concert or social.

Gold Ochre Studios will work to give you a piece of fine art capturing the important moments of your celebration. You can choose to have a scene from your party painted, working in key people. Guests will marvel seeing the painting unfold throughout the celebrations. You can also have a piece of modern art created with abstract elements inspired by the energy in the room (see image).

Once your event is over you will have your incredible heirloom delivered to you within two weeks. These two weeks allows the artist to add any necessary finishing touches and to properly varnish and seal the painting, ensuring its longevity.

The artist will also come equipped with a camera to photograph the scene for reference when adding detail to the painting afterwards. Price will be adjusted to include mileage for event locations more than 10 km outside of the Charlottetown area.

FAQ

Why choose Gold Ochre Studios for my event?

You will get an artist experienced in portraiture who will be able to capture the essence of the guests of honour. Gold Ochre Studios prides itself on delivering quality paintings using quality materials. The artist will meet with you as much as needed to discuss your vision for your event. 


What needs to be provided for the artist at my event?

The artist will bring all their own materials including a side table and a chair. If your artist is painting your reception, all they will need is a meal to ensure they keep their energy up to paint for the evening.


What kind of paint is used by the artist?

The artist will paint initial shapes and figures with acrylic paint since it dries quickly. The artist will then switch over to oil paint. Today's oil paint does not have a strong smell and is superior in colour and quality to acrylic. 
 

Do I need to worry about a mess being made by the paint?

Not at all! The artist brings a tasteful mat to lay under their chair & easel to ensure no paint gets on the floor of the venue. If a guest or waitstaff happens to knock over something the artist is using, they are equipped with a cleaning kit to take care of any messes.


Do you travel outside of Prince Edward Island for events?

Definitely! We love to road trip around the maritimes and would love to travel for your event. Additional charges will apply. Please contact us for a quote!


How will the artist interact with my guests?

The artist loves meeting new people and will chat with guests for the entirety of the event. We also welcome guests to watch the artist work as much as they like.
