If you've considered booking an art party for your child (or self!), you might have some questions about how it works. We're here to answer the most frequently asked questions, but feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the studio (425.391.0244) for more personalized answers.
What can we expect out of an art party?
Art parties vary depending on the age of your guests and the purpose of the party. If you book an art birthday party for your child, you can expect the art project to take up the first hour of the party. Then you will have an additional 30 minutes to cut cake, open presents, or hang out while the instructor packages all the artwork so that it's ready to go home with each guest at the end of your party.
Teen and adult parties include 90 minutes of instruction unless you would like to use 30 of those minutes to eat or open presents.
If you are happy with your instructor's management of your party, a 20% gratuity is recommended and can be added on to your cash or card payment at the end of the party. 100% of tips go directly to your instructor.
What does the space look like?
Our parties are held at our art studio in Issaquah. We have 3 classrooms in the studio, and use either two smaller rooms or one large one for parties depending on availability. Either way, there will be tables dedicated to the party portion of your event and the art-making portion.
What is provided for me?
We provide plastic tablecloths, forks, and plates so you can bring treats or cake to the party. Feel free to use our kitchenette to store food that needs to be frozen (like an ice cream cake) or refrigerated before you eat. And we always welcome decorations like balloons or streamers if you feel so inclined.
We also provide all materials for the art project of your choice. This includes the use of aprons, paint brushes, paint, easels, etc. All participants get to take home their art at the end of the party.
What kind of art project can I choose?
You can choose whatever subject matter you want! Participants can make polymer clay sculptures, paint with watercolor, or create an acrylic painting. The pictures above are some examples of recent project we've done at art parties with varying age groups.
Some guests of honor have a specific party theme and enjoy creating a project that goes with the theme. Others just choose something that they think would be fun to make. Either way, the guest of honor chooses the subject matter and the teacher instructs the group step-by-step.
We hope this answered most, if not all, of your questions! You can book an art party any time online here.
