Birthday Art Parties for Kids

Celebrate your child’s birthday with a creative twist! Perfect for children ages 5 to 15 years old, parents may select from one of several creative and educational art projects, each designed with fun in mind.

Day + Time
Based on availability, 2-hour parties are offered on Saturday and Sunday. The first hour and a half of the party will be a guided art project followed by 30 minutes to sing “Happy Birthday” and socialize.

The cost is $375 (or $350 for Family Members) for up to 12 children (including the birthday child) and $25 for each additional child ($20 for Family Members) with a maximum of 15 children.



Fantasy Masks & Wings

FANTASY MASKS and WINGS (ages 5-10)

Birthday guests will create their own original masks or wings in this fun-filled birthday activity! They can use animals or fantasy creatures as inspiration for these unique creations.



Birthday guests will have fun creating their own macramé wall hanging. Make it as simple or intricate as you would like using materials such as yarn, twine, wooden beads, and more!

Paint Like a Master


Birthday guests will have fun creating a work of art in a famous master’s style on canvas board using acrylic or tempera paint and brushes. The birthday child can choose either their favorite artist (or artwork) or leave it up to the instructor to decide.


SQUISH (Ages 5-8)

Birthday guests will sculpt and decorate their own special clay creations using self-hardening clay, acrylic paint, and other fun and decorative materials. The birthday child can choose one of the following projects: a favorite animal, a clay pot, or a decorative plaque.

  • An art teacher
  • Art materials appropriate for the selected party theme
  • A one-time $5 gift certificate to be used towards a student art class or membership for each child
