Birthday Parties in the Art Tent!

What does an art party look like?

Guests arrive, sanitize hands and settle in, we make some art (while parents are schmoozing, hanging out, shopping in the bookstore), clean up, and then gather together for some food (if you want to go that route). It’s relaxed, fun and a chance for kids to celebrate the birthday child while also being engaged in an activity!

*Our staff are vaccinated and we require that everyone be masked when inside.

$200 Party Rate + $3.50 materials fee per participating artist (clay projects and wood projects add an extra $1 to the materials cost per participant). A non-refundable $50 deposit is due at the time of booking to hold the party day and time. 

Lindsay, owner of Art Always, will work with the host family to come up with 2 (or sometimes 3) projects which fit the birthday child’s interests. Families can choose from the list of projects provided or ask Lindsay to brainstorm some ideas to fit a vision. Projects must be planned at least 1 week in advance of the party date.
