Live Well Paint Often is dedicated to giving back to the community.

We regularly hosts painting classes to raise money for charitable organizations or donate our time to teach painting classes to populations like foster youth and adults living with Alzheimers Disease.

We’ve painted live events for charity benefits and galas; the organization will then auction off the live painting to raise money at their event.

Live Well Paint Often also donates 10% of its annual profits to a host of charitable organizations.

Organizations we’ve worked with recently include North Fork Country Kids, LI Coalition for the Homeless, Breast Cancer Awareness, Babies with CDH, Amityville Public Schools, the Friedberg JCC Oceanside Seniors with Alzheimer's program, Kings Park Art League, the Andrew McMorris Foundation, and many more.

Interested in having us host a charity painting class, teaching a class at your nonprofit organization, or having us paint your gala or benefit? Get in touch here.

Can you work with groups with special needs? . . .

We believe in the therapeutic and healing power of art for all people and have experience teaching painting classes for a number of different populations. If your group needs any accommodations for your painting class, just let us know when you book.

How do I book a private class to benefit a nonprofit or teach a particular group from a nonprofit? . . .

Get in touch with us at our contact page to inquire. We'll be in touch to discuss.

How do you raise money at classes for charity? . . .

An organization gets in touch with us and we mutually pick a date and venue. Most of the ticket sales go to your organization; the rest go to covering the cost of the night's art supplies.

Can you paint at galas or charity benefits? . . .

Yes! Amanda relishes the opportunity to utilize her live painting skills at events like these. Usually, she paints the event as part of the evening's entertainment, similar to the way she paints a wedding. Then, the charity auctions off the painting and uses the funds raised to benefit their cause.
