Art Themed Parties

 Our beautiful site is light filled (even on overcast days) by 11 foot windows and our Art Gallery is an inspiring setting
for any art themed event! Art Parties for Adults or Children - terrific fun!
 
 
Whether a birthday party for a 6 year old, teens night out before the slumber party or an excuse to gather with your closest friends, art does the trick every time! We will help you design a fun filled afternoon or evening – your food and beverages, our instructors, supplies and a bit of structure all in our wonderful space in the Green Mountain Seminary.  
 
   We design our parties around the interest of the birthday girl or boy, woman or man and your budget.
  The site preparation, noise, activities and mess are ours to deal with. You provide the decorations, cake, beverages, plates, etc., and, of course, the guest of honor! Your guests may be delivered to and collected from our beautiful site and avoid the increased traffic at your own home.

 

  We do all the set up before and clean up after your party. You can drop off decorations during the week and when you arrive for your party in our Art Gallery the decor will be transformed on your theme!  It is quite exciting for anyone to enter the space decorated just for her or his special day!

 

 Working within your theme we create an art project that takes about an hour to complete. In most cases the project will go home with the children that same day and you can count on it as your ‘goodie bag’ for your guests. The exception would be if you selected a clay project, as the process of firing and glazing clay pieces means several weeks to finished projects. Those can be picked up here by the parents avoiding your prolonged involvement.

 

  After the art project, while parents take the children outside (weather permitting) to run off a little excitement, we clean and set up for the next round! When you troop back in all will be ready for the tearing open of gifts and gobbling of cake. Our schedule design is such about that time parents of the guests will arrive to take their children home and you can just pack up your car and go home to put your feet up! All in all we allocate about 2 hours for your event.

 

 Our room charge for a two hour event is $60 and a per guest charge depending on the project you select. Visual Art projects range from $7 to $15 per guest. Ceramic projects are $15 per guest.

 

Samples of projects:

$7.00

  Creating individual posters on a theme – through collage guests will cut interesting pictures, colors and forms from magazines and, learning a bit about composition, will paste overlapping images to create their desired effect. The finished poster will be suitable for hanging. Great fun for their rooms or to give to Grama!

 

$10.00

  Jewelry Making: Guests will create medallions on your theme and then select complementary colored beads which they will then string into a necklace and or bracelet. Not just for girls – most boys enjoy this project and make very interesting medallions!

 

  Art Journals:  Working with spiral bound journals guests transform the covers, make attached book marks and begin to fill the pages of their very own Art Journals. Lots of cutting and gluing satisfy every budding artist and the journal encourages continued creation long after the party is over.

 

  Mask Making: Guests will create and adorn masks on a theme. Using paper, paint, glue, found objects, etc. making masks will magically transform children into woodland fairies and sprites or super heroes and villains. If you are following up with a sleep over they can become part of a play before bed time! Either way, guaranteed to capture their imagination!

 

$12.00

   In this category we can use better quality papers, beads, journals, etc. for finished projects as long range keepsakes. For children who have an interest in Visual Art beyond craft level. Our instructors would love to design a project with you!

  

  Clay Project
