Tired of the same old “cookie cutter” approach for your child’s birthday party? Have your child’s party at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts and enjoy a customized, quality art experience led by a talented art instructor! Your party can be scheduled during the week or on Saturday (subject to availability). The Arts Council staff will work with you to customize your child’s party around his or her special interests and hobbies. Options include drawing and painting, ceramics, jewelry, and sewing. No two parties are alike!

Art Parties are 90 minutes in length and include a one-hour art project with an instructor in a studio, followed by 30 minutes of cake and ice cream in another room.

The Arts Council provides any art materials, art instruction, and art teacher.

You as host would be responsible for food, cake, refreshments, utensils, cups, plates and any decorations and any tablecloths. Please plan to have at least two adults present during the duration of the party.

Available Slots: Saturdays 2-4pm.

Project Options: Drawing & Painting & Clay, Comics (ages 8+), Jewelry (ages 9+), Sewing (ages 9+), Digital Art (ages 10+)
