Inspire collaboration and creativity – no experience required! 

Make your next off-site outing one to remember. We offer art-making sessions led by ACP teaching artists that cater to diverse personality types and company cultures. 

What sets the ACP apart? We offer not just painting events, but have the ability to host sessions in printmaking, wheel ceramics, textile arts, and more. Plus, we’re an independent arts non-profit, so you’re helping to make art more accessible for all by choosing us.

All instruction and materials are included. You may also choose to add on a meeting room or stay for lunch. We’ll help coordinate that, too.

A chance to have messy, artistic fun in our studio and not your home? Priceless!

We’d love to host a party for your child’s birthday that encourages creativity and fun for the whole group. 

Private art classes last one hour and we make it easy: each class is taught by a professional teaching artist and all supplies are included. We even supply the smocks! Included in your booking is use of the adjoining room, perfect for enjoying cake or pizza after the lesson.

You tell us all about your child’s unique interests, and we’ll work with you to customize a party that will knock their socks off. Past inspiration has included dragons, cars, unicorns, robots, animals, outer space – the possibilities are endless. 

There are so many mediums for you to explore, like origami, paper mache, felting, and more! Continue reading the options below, then click the button submit your request.
