Sharon Bell has been a creative face painter for 20 years. She has traveled to educate herself by professional face artists from around the world.

As Sharon developed her love for face painting something happened.  She started to paiKawartha Art Gallery Anual Jured Show 2016nt one of kind unique paintings. To her surprise she was accepted into many art shows. In 2016  she won a Jurors Choice Award at the Kawartha Art Gallery.

Saying this she goes with no preconceived idea when she starts to paint. She lets the thoughts go from her soul, to her head and out her finger tips. The Free Flow approach that is always rewarding, fulfilling and fun.

She encourages everyone to try Free Flow Art. Many people will say I can’t paint. Everyone can paint!!! We were all born with an artistic ability.  Its that fluff ball in your head that says you can’t paint. Don’t listen to that little fluff ball you can paint and you can enjoy painting.

Birthday Party Tips

Planning A Party? Here Are Some Tips From The Checkers Entertainment Team

  • Invite your guests at least one half hour before your entertainer arrives. It’s more fun to be at the party early to create excitement for when the entertainer arrives.
  • Have name tags for all the participants.
  • Turn off all televisions & radios.
  • Make sure your batteries are charged for your camera. Have your camera or telephone handy for unexpected surprises.
  • Keep the adult noise to a minimum. It’s hard for the entertainer and the children to stay focused through talking.

We Recommend That You:

  • First – Have your entertainment.
  • Second – Open the gifts.
  • Last – Have the food last so you won’t have to deal with a small crowd on a sugar buzz. Send them home with a sugar buzz!!!! Your day will be less stressful.

2 Final Reminders:

  • NO SMOKING!!!! Some children and adults are allergic to cigarette smoke.
  • Enjoy The Day – don’t sweat the small stuff, like the mess you can clean up later.

We only use FDA approved products to transform children of all ages (and adults too!) into whatever they want to become. A cat, a princess, a frog, a tiger, a super-fan or maybe something more subtle like a flower.

In addition to hand painting designs, we can airbrush them onto faces, arms, neck and feet. The Checkers Team can apply Deluxe Body Jewels, Temporary Tattoos or Glitter.
