Artists can do amazing things with materials such as paint, candy, ice, henna, sand, and wax that will provide both entertainment and decoration for your special event. A well placed ice sculpture at a wedding or a colorful candy sculpture at a birthday party will make a statement that is sure to impress your guests.

A caricaturist, for example, will draw a caricature of your guests that they can each take home as a favor to remember your special day. Henna and bindi can be applied to guests as body art at cultural celebrations. This rich tradition is not only fun to have done, but also fun to watch the artist at work.

Kids face painting is a big hit at kid's parties. Depending on the theme of your party, consider the designs you want the artist to do for face painting. For example if the theme is animals, ask the face painter to have several types of animal designs to paint on the kids' faces.

Work with your party venue to determine what types of art and entertainment is allowed in your event space. Sand and wax art might not make sense in a banquet hall, but could work really well at an outdoor venue. Likewise, speak to the ice sculpture artist to find out the temperature restrictions for your sculpture.

No matter what type of event you're hosting, art is a terrific solution for entertainment, decoration, and even favors. Search artists in our vendor database and see what's available in your area.
