What size paper do you use?

Our artists draw on 11×17 or 11×14 paper unless requested otherwise.

What if I need the artist to stay longer than contracted?

We bill overtime in 1/2 hour increments at $150/hr ($75 for 30 min). However, we cannot guarantee that the artist can stay longer than the allotted time.

What are your COVID/Pandemic Policies?

During a pandemic, FACES IN FOCUS adheres to all federal pandemic mitigation guidelines as promulgated by the CDC in order to keep our hosts, guests, and staff as safe as possible. Since we do not know who is vaccinated, we will always wear masks and observe social distancing and require that our clients do the same when near our staff.
