How It All Started

Hadin FamilyIn 2007 MIchael, my Husband, our two Sons and I went to Disney World. When we visited Animal Kingdom I immediately wanted my face painted, and I MADE my Husband and kids do it with me (don’t my teenagers look thrilled). I had a blast walking around with my three Tigers.

Hadin Family - Face PaintingI watched them paint and was thrilled with the vibrant colors and amazed at the speed of the artist. The transformations were fantastic! While my Husband and Sons were being painted, I watch other children and adults being painted I was inspired from the excitement each person showed when viewing their new face in the mirror, and immediately I wanted to learn this art form.

Since 2007 I have started my own face painting business.  We book events in Sacramento and the surrounding area, teach other women how to start their own business, and  sell the best professional supplies for a successful business. I know this is a great small business for anyone who needs an extra income, and if for nothing else ……. JUST FOR FUN!

Just For Fun Arts GROWS!

Over the last 6 years we have added Balloon Twisting, Henna, Glitter Art and much more to our services.  We now have a retail selection of all Wolfe FX, Tag and Mehron professional make up, Qualatex entertainer balloons, and everything else professional performing artist use in their business.  We have beginner art classes, and free jams on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.

We have recently moved to a larger studio and have added acrylic, oil and mixed media art classes for adults and children.  “Paint Parties” are really popular.  So we added private parties and we now go on location at wineries, local restaurants, and other venues.

We now have a craft room for our members that want to come into the studio and work on any form of art.  All the supplies you need are stocked, as well as tools like a cricket, silhouette, copier, brushes, all types of paint, stamps, a huge mixed media selection and much more included.  We also can help you with cutting and welding if you are into a big art projects.  We charge $75 per month for access to the “Play Room”.  There is plenty of table space for all your projects, and most of the the supplies in the “Play Room” are included.

My Mother was an artist.  I grew up learning every kind of art imaginable.  I can walk through Michaels and remember every forms of art we did together.  My Husband and I are now into Trash to Treasure art.  We recently found a steering wheel shaft from an old Model T Ford.  We are using the steering wheel as the base,  extending the shaft and turning it into an awesome apron and coat rack for our studio.
