Birthday Art Parties
Celebrate at the Blue Door Studio!
Your child will be the guest of honor! Who is their favorite artist? What is their favorite art style? What’s his or her favorite medium? Your child may choose a theme of his or her choice from our list of ART Party lessons!
Does your child have a theme in mind? We can custom design a lesson for your child based on his or her interests- sports, flowers, outer space… (please see our price list)
First, your child will be celebrated by friends as they create a collaborative birthday canvas painting special for him or her when they arrive at the studio. Then, the children will gather together and learn about the chosen artist and art project through the use of visual references. In the studio, students will create their works of art. When they are done, they will kick back and enjoy taking pictures in our artist photo booth, then it’s cake time!
