Painting Parties on Canvas

The Art Studio has the painting parties at in your home, or a restaurant/hall of your choosing or I can help you find a venue.  Parties are for 1hr & 30 minutes (ages 5 and  up) for your party. (a 4 year old can paint as long as a parent sits with each of them).  There will be an instructor to work with the children on an art project.  There are painting aprons, easels, canvas, brushes and paint provided.   If you have a canvas painting party, you can choose a painting from over 25 designs from our art studio booklet.   All art is taken home that day, they all paint the same painting.  

The sweets and beverages or juice boxes are supplied by you.  We put plastic on each table, 1 painting table and 1 food table,  if you have themed paper plates, napkins, decorations, etc. you can bring those in if you like. We handle the cleanup of the art project you would handle any food you would like to take home with you.  I setup 1 hour before the party starts.  Please ask guests to be prompt so that late children do not start painting late. lady bugs

1 hour is spent with a step by step instruction on the art project, followed by time remaining of Cake/Gifts and photos.  I will take a group photo, but I always ask, in case someone doesn’t want to be in the photo. Parents can also take photos. I post my photographs on facebook; but never use children’s names.

2016-07-10 14.21.46Most projects need to dry while having cake, cupcakes or treat. I ask that the parent serve their sweets, while I cleanup the paint and dry the paintings.  If you need help, I will certainly help you. Please watch for peanut allergies also. 

At least 1 parent or guardian of birthday child must be on the premise at all times and must bring a guest list of parent name, child name and emergency phone number. Please note that the instructor cannot take individual guests to the washroom during their art lesson. Children either go on their own or with parent present.

Party cost – Up to 10 Children is $150, each additional child is $15.  We will need a $25 deposit to hold your date.  If you need additional time, we charge $20 per half hour.  Our usual birthday time slots are after school hours, Saturday and Sundays noon or 3pm.  The Friday/Saturday evenings are held for the Adult parties.  You can also go to our Registration Calendar tab to see what days are still open.  Then please call to schedule that date so that we may add you to the calendar – for you to then pay your $25 deposit online.  Thank you.  847-421-1616
