How it works....
Live painting is a form of visual entertainment that can be set up in any environment whether a golf outing or a black tie, gala dinner.
Part of the fun in what we do is the collaboration phase. We always work with our clients to make sure that the painting we are creating specifically for their event will appeal to their donors and attendees. It is essential to know your audience. The more we learn about your audience and cause, the more money we can raise at your event!
Once we have selected the subject matter, Cortney will prepare the painting in her studio until it is 75% complete. This can be achieved with as little as two weeks lead time prior to the event.
At the event, the set up takes no more that 15 minutes and can occupy as little as 5' x 5' of space.
By the time the guests enter the room, they will be able to see the progress of the artwork and have a good feel for the painting aesthetically.
They will also have an opportunity to meet the artist prior to the live auction which will only help the painting sell!
How live painting can enhance your event:
People are fascinated by art and love watching an artist work! This we know from experience.
Did you know that 90% of the live auction art sales, go to the buyer who connected with Cortney while painting live (just prior to the auction) ?
Your event will be enhanced with a one of a kind, original painting created specifically for your event.
Why choose Cortney to paint live at your event?
With poise and professionalism, you will be sure to enhance your live auction by acquiring her artistic services for your charity event.
We take great pride in building relationships and making the process as easy as possible for you, the foundation, and event coordinator.

What clients are saying...
“Cortney Wall is a superb artist. Cortney recently performed at two Building Homes for Heroes charitable events. One of which was our Annual Honoree Dinner that took place in June in New York at the beautiful Battery Gardens Restaurant. The other event took place in August at our Annual Long Island Golf Outing at the Rockville Links Country Club in Rockville Centre. Cortney created two beautiful patriotic inspired paintings. The paintings were auctioned off at the end of the evening at both events and helped raised funds for Building Homes for Heroes. Thank you Cortney for your support, interest and devotion to our Veterans. We commend you. We look forward to seeing you next year!”
-Carolyn Paszke, Director of Special Events and Corporate Relations, Building Homes for Heroes

--Joe Canty, President/Chairman Chris Canty Foundation
“Cortney is a very talented and accomplished young lady and has a great career ahead of her. I hope she will come back and do another painting for one of our events in the future.”
