Children's Art Parties - Fantastic Birthday Fun! (suspended for now)

​For $75 you get two hours at the Creative Arts Center. One hour will be for an art project with supplies and an Instructor provided and the other hour is for your child to open presents, have cake, etc. Art Projects can be tailored somewhat for your child's favorite theme! Or, just have an art party for fun whether it's for a birthday or not.

Adult Art Parties can be scheduled for your group - Sunday School class, office employees - it's a great way to celebrate or get to know each other better! Let us know about your group and what project they would like! Usually between $35-$50 pp (instructor and supplies included).
