Private Parties for Kids

Perfect for Birthday parties, sports team celebrations, scout troops, holiday parties and more.

What better way to capture the perfect memories than with artwork made together. Join us on your special day for projects in bookbinding, clay, jewelry assembling, mixed media, painting, paper-marbling or printmaking. In a youth private party, our instructor will provide step by step guidance on a pre-selected activity. This activity can be based on a theme or our instructors can help come up with ideas for the activity. We provide the instruction and supplies so all you need to bring are any optional treats  you would like to have.
