Instead of hiring a face painter for your party, hire April-Anna to teach your party guests how to face paint each other, this is a great parent child activity & ensures everyone gets painted while making it easier to deal with proper protocols to prevent transmission of COVID19.

Workshops are custom designed, are a minimum of 2 hours up to a full day. $150 per hour plus supplies. Take home kits include: paint brushes, sponges & face paints, per participant are $40 each.

Face painting & artistic make-up are suitable for all ages and can take between 10 minutes up to 2 hours per person, depending upon complexity of the concept. Black light face paints (UV sensitive) are also available. Find out more about face painting Services for Kids.



“April-Anna did a fantastic job at my daughters 4th birthday party, All the children were very happy and everyone was very impressed with her designs and natural way with children. Definitely hiring again!”

– Ashley Scourse, 2016

“I hired April-Anna for my daughters eighth birthday this past September (2015). We had twelve kids ranging in age of 4 to 8. I was extremely impressed with how calm and professional she was during the two hour session. The children were delighted at the range of designs and themes. I would definitely hire her again.”

– Alison Meldrum

We highly recommend her!”

April-Anna face painting a childSet up takes 15 minutes and is part of the first hour.

Please understand I arrive for the time you book me & set up begins once I arrive on location. You will be charged from the time I start set-up until the time I finish painting the last child. You are not charged for clean up which takes 30 minutes.

Please make sure my work space is ready for me before I arrive on location; client is responsible for providing an adult size table of 4 feet long & proper lighting.

Do no place me besides the speakers if you have loud music.

Parents are responsible for managing the children while I work, which includes deciding which child will get face painted next.

Custom Designs:

I can do this but understand that new designs take me longer, approx. 8 minutes to 20 minutes per face if I have never done it before.

If I am not doing customized work, I provide a selection of choices for the children to choose from that I know can paint in 4 to 10 minutes each (can be slowed down if the child won’t stay still).
