The Honeybee Arts Blog
A paint party is a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday, have a fundraiser, reconnect with friends and so much more. Plus, you don't need to be an experienced painter to join in on this super fun way to spend an evening.
Here are 4 reasons why you should have a paint party at home this year!
1. You can party on your terms!
No need to rent an event space or search for a reservation at your nearest Paint & Sip shop. You don't have to wait for a class to start or for a certain day of the week. You can party when and where you like, solo or with a group, with Paint Party Kits mailed directly to you. You can even participate with friends, family or colleagues around the world if you choose to have your party kits mailed to each participant. Honeybee Arts does that for you! To top it off, Honeybee will create a custom painting for your group to recreate-- free for groups of 5 or more! Order your favorite food, let your guests know it's BYOB, throw on you favorite playlist, and get the party started!
2. You'll have fun with friends or family
Whether you're planning a special event or just getting together for a Ladies Night, Family Brunch, or Team-building activity with your coworkers, you'll have fun and LOTS of laughs while painting together. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your private paint party.
3. You can be as creative as you want while painting your masterpiece
No matter what anyone tells you, there are no rules when it comes to painting. You can be as creative as you want, and there is no wrong way to do it. Use a pre-recorded video or pre-traced canvases as a guide, or just let your imagination run wild and see what you can come up with.
4. It's a great way to relax and unwind
There's no doubt about it - life can be stressful. Between work, family, and everything else, it's easy to feel like you're constantly on the go. But paint and sip parties are about having fun and letting go! You feel like you’re in a world of your own, the music playing in the background, relaxing with a drink and letting your creative spirit flow. Paint Parties are an exciting new option for your next celebration, ladies night, retreat and more. You can hold a party with just a few friends locally or invite a larger group from around the country, or internationally.
No matter your skill level, a paint party at home is a great way to spend an evening. So gather up your friends and family, round up your colleagues, and let Honeybee Arts help you have a fun and unique paint night you'll never forget!

Check out the amazing portraits these lovely ladies created during a fun-filled Paint & Sip at Red Lobster in Dover, Wilmington and the Deptford/Philly area!
Sending a very special thanks to the team at Red Lobster of Dover. If you didn't know, the Dover branch was the first to give me an opportunity to partner with them for monthly events in Delaware, creating even more opportunities for me to expand with other Red Lobster branches. The General Manager, Allen Wyre, and Manager/Server, Shannon are the absolute best! They've ensured great service, a clean establishment, delicious food, and a warm atmosphere for you guys, every single time! *Applause*
As for this super creative group of women who came out for these events--you did an AMAZING job! It literally brought tears to my eyes to see what they created. I sincerely love what I do, and I’m thankful for every opportunity that I get to curate experiences for my customers, as well as my private clients. It comes straight from the heart. These ladies did a FANTASTIC job and they had a great time doing it!
If you missed this one, join me at a future event, or book a private paint and sip just for you and your guests in Delaware, New Jersey, NYC, and parts of Pennsylvania and Maryland.
It's no secret that 2020 was a challenge for many of us. Many businesses needed to pivot and find new ways to survive the wave while dealing with personal health challenges and the wellbeing of family and friends. For Honeybee Arts, it was a challenge to stay afloat, but this challenge also created space and time for the company's evolution and growth. Honeybee Arts LLC's new mission is to use the arts as a tool for facilitating fun, creative, and educational experiences on a foundation of wellness. We are proud to provide new programming to our community, starting this year!
Great news! Honeybee Arts founder and lead artist, Avilda Whittmore, is now an RYT 200 Yoga Instructor, registered with the Yoga Alliance. With the help of Avilda and other great yoga instructors, Honeybee Arts will be positioned to provide enriching and engaging wellness programs for your family, community program, or corporate function.
Youth Yoga Workshops (Live or virtual)
30 MIN-45 MIN Duration
As part of Honeybee Arts' commitment to facilitating fun, creative, and educational experiences on a foundation of wellness, we are pleased to provide yoga for ages 3 and up.
Mindfulness Through Art & Movement Workshops (Live or virtual)
30 MIN-2HR Duration
This program includes an open-ended art activity followed by yoga, and is designed to help participants focus on being present in the moment while acknowledging and accepting their feelings and passing thoughts, in addition to building awareness of their bodies.
Please keep in mind that, at this time, Honeybee Arts LLC does not employ yoga teachers who are licensed therapists. We do not offer therapy or counseling of any kind, however, we are skilled at building mind-body connections, physical wellness, and mental states of well being through our experiences with yoga practice, yoga philosophy, and working with ages 3 through seniors in the field of art.
Art is an expression of the creative self, and is a completely immersive experience that allows us to explore, test, learn, exercise, expand and cultivate our essence. Who says that education needs to stop during a birthday party? I think many of us can agree that the most enjoyable and effective exercise we experience is the kind where we don't realize we are exercising at all - insert Zumba, I mean, dancing, here. I create spaces of freedom and focus where individuals, young and old, can learn and develop new skills, experiment through imitation and play, and exercise their unique voices through various enriching activities, whether the playground be a group art class or a birthday party!
Art in any form is such a powerful tool, that I believe it can and should be used for the holistic development of every man, woman and child. For those who view themselves as separate from experienced artists, the act of creating a work of art with their own hands boosts confidence, tremendously! It's evident every single time I hear the "ooo's and ahhh's" as a painting begins to rise from the canvas as something intentional and recognizable by the once, inexperienced artist. The first step to greatness is knowing that greatness is achievable, and that it comes from within you, no matter who you are.
Artistic practices can be embedded in multiple aspects of our lives. These teaching moments don't have to end with traditional school settings, and can continue at the dinner table, during freetime, or during your next celebration with friends and family.
My name is Avilda, Artist and owner of Honeybee Arts, and I'm so grateful to have been a conduit for spreading love, joy and creativity through art for over a decade. Here is a glimpse of my world through the lens of Honeybee Arts.
