How long does paint stay fresh for in the cups or trays?
This depends on the medium, pigment, and quality of paint. It's safe to say all paints will last over a week with no use before they develop any kind of skin on them. Some paints will last over a month. If your are painting weekly they will stay fresh.

 Oil painters can extend the paints life by adding a drop of clove oil on the inside of their lid.

 Water based painters can mist water over their paints before stowing to keep them wet longer. There are acrylic slow dry mediums that can also be sprayed over the cups.
