Terms & Conditions
VIRTUAL PARTY DEPOSITS
Deposits for instruction only are accepted to temporarily secure your date while confirming details. Otherwise, payment is due in full at time of booking. If you choose to make a deposit, your $50 non-refundable deposit is applied to your final balance.
All payments are made in advance; due date for virtual instruction alone is 1 week before the event. If you need ABP supplies, payment may be due 3-6 weeks in advance of your event. Exact details provided when your deposit is set up.
CHOOSING AN IMAGE
You have the option to send Preference examples of what you want to create or request assistance with choosing. Please note that if you send work by another artist or company, Preference modifies the image to avoid copyright infringement. Preference also makes recommendations and tailors the images to make sure they work well for your group.
CUSTOMIZATION & PREPARATION
If you would like to have your event or any supplies customized, Preference needs sufficient time to create your sample and get your feedback.
Customization does not begin until a deposit/payment is made. It is important that Preference receives your feedback and payment by the date(s) requested to allow for sufficient preparation time.
Preference takes time to prepare materials for your event in advance for the most successful outcome. To ensure that she does not incur any unexpected loss, materials are not purchased or prepared until your payment is made in full.
IMAGE DESIGN (Virtual Guidance Only)
Because you will be working on a blank canvas, Preference must prepare an image for your event to ensure that it works for your group. Whether you choose, or she helps you choose, this step cannot be skipped. Image design does not begin until either a deposit or full payment is made.
Plan to pay for your party at least two weeks in advance to ensure that Preference has adequate time to prepare your image sample, send it to you for approval, then for you to respond with approval or any requests for modifications.
Please invite positive people only.
GUEST PURCHASE TRACKING
Preference will share a Google Spreadsheet with you to keep track of your party's purchases. You can access this spreadsheet at any time.
Please make sure you have downloaded it or saved it by the date of the party as it may be deleted shortly after. This is especially helpful if you need to send direct reminders to members of your party.
If you are unable to or unsure how to use Google Spreadsheets, please request an e-mail by a specified date (ex. one week before the payment deadline, 2 days before the payment deadline).
UNACCOUNTED FOR GUESTS
ONLY share the Zoom link with paid individuals or the number of people included in your original headcount AND express this to your guests. Preference will not provide direct guidance to individuals who happen to be in your home and want to paint along. This is also considered stealing. Once the Zoom event has reached its maximum number of guests, no more will be admitted.
GETTING INTO YOUR SESSION
A link to your Zoom session will be sent from Art by Preference no less than one week before your event using the contact information you provided at the time of purchase. If you are the organizer of a one location event, please make sure you provide your guests with the link BEFORE the day of the event. You may also give Preference guest contact information so she can send details directly.
CANCELLATION & REFUNDS
No refunds will be given, but a credit will be issued and can be redeemed within 3 months, based on availability. Individuals not in attendance for a party that is held forfeit payment altogether. Please notify Preference of cancellations no less than 48 hours in advance of your event.
By proceeding with payment, you are agreeing that you understand and accept these terms and conditions.
