Frequently Asked Questions

What is the maximum number of painters that can fit on The Little Art Bus?

Due to health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, currently we can only allow up to 10 artists on the bus at a time. Parties with more than 10* participants will need to be split into 2 groups for the creative activities. One group will create on the bus, the other group will need to create outside of the bus, preferably in a covered, climate controlled area like a garage, porch, or covered patio.


How many staff members are at a tlab party?

Our team is dependent on the amount of children attending each individual party. Parties of 15 or less artists will have 2 TLAB Team Members, an instructor and an assistant. Parties of 16 or more will require an additional assistant which will be an additional $50 added to the final cost.

what is your cancellation policy?

PRIVATE PARTIES: We understand that situations do come up beyond our control. If you need to cancel for any reason, please notify us via email or phone as soon as possible. A refund of your deposit, minus a $50 reservation fee will be granted if notification of party/event cancellation is received prior to the 48 hours leading up to your party/event. (Example, if your party is on Saturday the 7th at noon, we would need to be notified no later than noon on Thursday the 5th). If you notify us of your intent to cancel your party within the 48 hour window leading up to your scheduled date and time, no refund will be given.

If you wish to reschedule your party/event, there will be a second reservation fee of $50 added to your balance if we're notified with less than two weeks before your original party/event date as it will be too late to book any other events during your original reserved time slot.
