Frequently Asked Questions


What are art kits?

Brushed Designs Art Kits vary based on their theme, but generally speaking an art kit contains items that help kids, teens, and adults create a fun project using different art mediums and supplies.

What kinds of art kits do you offer?

We offer various art kits throughout the year. Our specialties are canvas art kits and ceramic art kits. We also offer kits with classes and special events, which include online or in-person instruction.

Are your kits just for kids?

No! Anyone can purchase and use our art kits. Sometimes you need to encourage and nurture your kid-at-heart, and our kits make great projects for anyone wanting to be creative and make something fun! We offer kits for all ages.

Do you offer fundraisers for groups?

We do offer a fundraiser option with our art kits, and can work with you to create an event that will be beneficial for your group, scout troop, or school! Use our art kits as an opportunity to raise funds and provide a fun, engaging experience for your supporters. Contact us for more specific information and ideas.

How do paint parties work?

Paint Parties are fun events where your guests get to create a work of art together! Our staff will lead your guests through the project step-by-step. You provide the venue, table, and chairs. We'll provide everything needed for you and your guests to complete your chosen project. When you book a Paint Party, you will choose your design and we'll discuss what to expect, venue details, and any questions you may have. We'll set up a registration page where you and your guests will pre-register for the party. Then we'll see you at your event! We do require pre-payments and a minimum of of 8 guests for paint parties.

Does Mini Monet include the book?

Mini Monet kits do not include a physical copy of the book. The book is read during the video tutorial, after which we give instruction for the featured project. When you purchase a Mini Monet kit, you are purchasing supplies for a project as well as project instruction.

Do you charge shipping?

We do charge shipping for all of our physical items. Shipping price is based on the size and weight of an item, and we always strive to find the best rate available. For the size of our kits, most of the time that rate is priority mail through USPS. If you have questions or concerns regarding shipping a large amount of items, please contact us and we can research the best options for you.

How often do you design new kits?

We strive to update our shop weekly with a few new kits, and may do it more often before holidays and special occassions. That means you'll always have something new to create!

How long does it take you to ship?

Our kits usually ship out in 2-3 business days. We hand draw each and every one, to order. This gives us the option to offer many designs, and also provides the unique opportunity for quality control. This also means it takes a little time to get your order ready for you. Larger orders, such as for fundraisers or groups, may take a little longer. Please contact us for a shipping quote if you plan on placing a large order.

Do you teach in-person classes?

Under "normal" circumstances, we do offer in-person paint parties and classes. Due to COVID-19, most of our classes and events are currently online, but we will be scheduling in person classes soon. We're looking forward to the day when we can create with you again in person!

I don't see a design that will work for my Girl Scout Troop, Can you make one for us?

Yes! We are always open to creating a design for you or your event. If you don't see something that works for you in our shop, contact us and we'll work together to get a design that fits your needs.

My daughter wants a unicorn paint party, can you do it?

Yes we can! We offer several options when it comes to birthday parties and we'll help you choose the one that is best for you. You can choose to host a themed paint party that would include in-person instruction. Our kit party packs are also available if you want a fun, creative activity for your party without live instruction. These come in a variety of themes and are available to order in our shop. If you don't see a party option that fits what you have in mind, we will work to create something for you.

How do you teach your classes?

Our online classes and tutorials are taught on a private page here on the Brushed Designs website. For any classes in which you register, you'll receive a code to access the private page. There, you'll be able to view either a live or recorded video. In-person classes are taught at a venue and registration is subject to the host. If there is an open/public registration for these classes, we will post information on our website and social media.

Do your kits come with instructions?

Our Kid Art Kits do not come with instructions. One of our goals as a business is to foster imagination and open-ended activities for kids. This means we want children to feel the freedom and joy of investigating their own creativity while using our art materials. For our canvas art kits, we do provide a picture of a sample painting that is accessible online. If your child wants to recreate it in the same way we did, they can view the painting in our gallery and interpret how they would like to paint. Our Art Kits + Tutorials, many of our Ceramic Kits, and our Classes come with either recorded or live instruction. These items will state in the item description that a tutorial or instruction is included.
