Craft or Painting Party for Girls and Boys, in your home or other venue.

Many crafts to choose from and over 30 paintings to choose from, ask to see our painting selection brochure.


Have a Party in Your Home, each child takes home their art the same day!

The Smiling Shamrock Art has the parties in your home, or a restaurant / hall, park district of your choosing or I can help you find a venue.  Setup is 30 minutes before, actual project is for 1hr (please note, younger children have a shorter attention span and may only create for 45 minutes).  Then we need 30 minutes to cleanup.  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 their craft or art project. There are painting aprons, easels, canvas, brushes and tempera paint or supplies for a craft project provided.  If you have a canvas painting party, you can choose a painting from over 30 designs from our art studio booklet.   Ask about our craft projects.  All art is taken home that day, they all paint the same painting.  

The sweets and beverages are supplied by you along with a plastic table covering.  We handle the cleanup of the art projects and the paint table.  There really is minimal mess, we are very careful in your home and all paint is water based.  Please ask guests to be prompt so that late children do not start painting late. lady bugs

Again, about 1 hour is spent with a step by step instruction on the art project, followed by cleanup and drying of the project, while children eat Cake at another table; we also take final project photos.  With the group photo, I always ask, in case someone doesn’t want to be in the photo.  I post my photographs on facebook; but never use children’s names. Parents can also take photos as the children are all posed.
