Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How does booking work?
A. A 50% deposit and signed contract secure your date with the remainder due the week prior to your event!  This is all manageable via an online portal so you can book via your phone or computer for your convenience.

Q. What is the difference between Standard Caricatures and Quick Caricatures?
A. Standard Caricatures take 3 minutes per person (or 20 people per hour) while Quick Caricatures take about 1 minute per person (or 50 people per hour). Standard Caricatures are on 11x17" while Quick Caricatures are on 8.5x11".  Standard Caricatures are generally more detailed while Quick Caricatures are simplified for speed. Standard Caricatures are great for small to medium sized parties where details would be appreciated whereas Quick Caricatures are great for large parties where speed and efficiency are important!

Q. Do you have multiple artists available?

A. Yes! Marietta has a number of caricature artists on roster that can work with her given their availability! All artists bring their own supplies.  Paper sizing, styles, and drawing times may vary. 

Q. Do you know a face painter or balloon twister?
A. Yes! Marietta also has a roster of 50+ entertainers in the Kansas City area who can also work with her at your event. We have face painters, balloon twisters, airbrush tattoos, glitter tattoos, henna, magicians, and even Santa Claus - our staff can do it all!

Q. Do you do commissions?

A. No. Caricatures by Marietta is an event service dedicated to bringing you live art entertainment.  That being said, we're happy to do house calls! We've attended a number of dinner parties and holiday family gatherings where caricatures were the primary focus.  We're often far more economical than commissioning an artist - and we're fun during the process too!  And remember - Marietta is happy to travel nationwide!
